    Golden,

    First, thanks for the service to our country. I am not as experienced as most of the guys on the forum, just started to hunt cats recently. I found a good spot in Bellevue, KY.

    Take Route 8 east from I471. Go south on O'Fallon. That turns into 2nd avenue. Go past a River Boat dock about 100 yards. There is an old ramp where a boat dock was located. This is right across the river from where the 96 pounder was caught a couple of weeks ago.

    Caught a couple of 8 - 10 pound channels on nightcrawlers. I know that is small for this site, but there has to be some big ones out there.

    Good luck.

    I have a pretty decent spot, haven't had the appropriate bait yet - but I have seen hawgs pulled out of this spot in Miamitown. If you want to get together sometime, drop me a PM buddy.

    Good fishing spots on our inland rivers are getting harder and harder to find, do to the growing ammount of people fishing.

    Spots that used to produce for me just dont anymore because there is always large groups of people fishing them.

    Most decent spots I have now, require alot of effort to get to, some are several hours of walking thru rough wooded areas just to get to water that is unfished by most people.

    I am very new here but I fish the river. I also served so thank you for that!! first you will need to decide what type of cats you want to catch. I am catching big flatheads now and channels about anytime. I would suggest getting that small boat ( can find them up and down the river from 300.00 and up) and getting out of the mainstream areas where everyone else is fishing, focus on the deepest holes you can find and use bait from the river which usually requires a back water area (or creek) to catch your bait. Use bait from 4" to 12" 7/0 hooks or larger in the circle type I like gamakatsu octopus circle hooks (ebay 8.99 for 25)and at least 65lbs braid line, a rod and reel that can handle some abuse. There are many ways to rig your bait I like bringing the bait 3 to 10 inches from bottom to present it. I have a special trick I learned for prepping bait and will share it with you if u want to know it i will also share the presentation rig if you do these things you should be able to catch fish your first night out. best of luck and if your in the marietta area ever let me know I will try to hook-up w/u to fish. good catching drop me a line anytime,
