    I''ve found the best thing to do is fosh the flood area, where the water is slow. The GMR will have some nasty stuff flowing down, limbs, log, trees, metal signs, etc.... all sorts of debree. Plus I've had up to 8oz no roll sinker act like wooden floats the water rushes so fast.
     

  3. I've caught some of my biggest Channel Catfish on the Mahoning River when it was raging fast, high, and muddy...cut gizzard shad....TightLines!

    fish the backwaters, and snags. most of the rivers around here we've found to be pretty clean cut and kept clean, we catch all our best cats in iowa from snags, where a bunch of limbs ans debreise has caught up on something.

    I have found out that you can "fosh" all you want w/ Flathunter, but you'll never catch a FLATHEAD!

    OK, OK, OK, that was a good one. I am proud to be OGF's worst speller/typest!

    "Fllod" waters can be fun to "fosh" in sometimes.

    Dang Bryan, you caught me with a typo..LOL..My WIFE, just read this thread and cracked up.
     
  13. Stop it!! I cant breath. LMAO!! I fish eddy type areas when I can and inside bends. Ive noticed it seems I can not find big concentrations of fish in flood waters. I feel like they scatter out alot and get behind whatever current break they can! But I keep looking and trying to learn.
