I fish regulary from Maysville to below Markland dam & i have for 10 years. I would have to say there are more Blues below Meldahl. However in the last couple of years the Blue population above Meldahl has increased a great deal. I fished the cabelas tournament up there a couple years ago and all 5 of our fish were bllues with 2 over 20lbs. i know some hoop netters & trotliners that fish up there & I do know they catch some fish in the 50lbs range. I'll check with the guy that runs the Maysville ramp & see if the commercial guys have had any fish that big, they camp at the Maysville launch.Is that the Meldhal pool? Are blues as previlent up that way as they are in the Markland pool?
