    Well so far this year has been decent, I have at least managed a fish everytime I was out and lately I have been catching at least 4 or so with each trip to the Ohio. That being said 90% of the fish I am catching is within the 6 lb range with a few thrown in up to 11 lbs, nothing of any real size. This brings me to my question, is there certain areas where only smaller cats hang out and others where the big boys stay? I fish the great miami river down stream to Big Bone mainly around Petersbug area. I would like to catch an over 20 lber and have no problem putting my "time" in to get it but it seems like I am in the daycare area of the river when I really like to be in the "adult" education area where the big dogs hang!!!:smile2: I have both drifted and sat in all different depths of water using shad only.

    yeah shane you have a point.....dang gotta quit talking to u....anyways Bill....go to the power plant to the water discharge and throw your net. the skips are in there pretty decent right now. it might take u a lil bit to get them cuz they are fast and u dont get many per throw. but use them with ur shad....ull catch more fish
