we fished the ohio below cannelton yesterday and actually did pretty good. but the day started out very slow. all we had for bait was frozen skips. caught one good blue right of the bat and didnt catch another one for several hours later. we talked to a couple tournament guys who were catching a few on fresh shad. i asked them where they got the shad and they said they caught them down river at the warm water discharge. now, we do get bait there in winter because the water is warm. i did not know they would be there in the summer with the surface temp at around 82 degrees already but i did not question this and we went down river to find some shad. needless to say we did not get any. now i do not know if these guys were just feeding us a line of crap or what. we didnt even graph any schools anywhere in the river. now i got to thinking maybe they caught them there at night when the surface temp had cooled down a bit. does anybody know anything about this. i do know the shad were pretty abundant in the creeks but we were not anywhere near a creek. are the shad right on bottom in the river? we managed to catch 16 blues and everyone was right on bottom.
