We were fishing Meldahl yesterday afternoon/evening on the KY side. Caught 1 keeper sauger and a bunch of dinks. Oh and 1 dead beaver. Seriously. We thought it was a log at first. I only saw about 15 keepers caught from 2 pm to around 7pm. Orange, red were the hot colors. Anyway, I was talking to a slightly older timer and he remarked he was looking forward to walleye fishing below Markland come Jan. & Feb. I've never fished down there, but when he said walleye and that you don't get hung up near as much due to the gravel bottom - my ears perked up. Was he telling me a fish story? I'd always heard the best 'eye fishing on the Ohio was back towards W VA & PA. I pull 'eyes out of Meldahl once in a while, but nothing of size. If its true, can anyone tell me the best bait store to hit for minnows before going (any other hints/tips would be much appreciated)? There's no answer at the Markland Bait store. I'll be traveling from Fairfield, OH.
