    Well had Presidents Day off today so decided to hit the river, talk about crankin current it was moving, water was only three feet from the top of the Tanners ramp, one small area had no mud the rest was covered so launched in that small window, motored out to the main river looked over at the cooling pond discharge it was under water, Oh Boy this could be fun, but we only had a few bites and great fun, Thanks Josh had a blast man, your great company we will do it again. Most of the fish were stuck to the Primary breakline, also had tons of problems with Sauger eating up our baits, would come back with just ribs showing, water tempature has rose to 42.3 degrees, the air temp was at 50 degrees when we launched this morning and dropped all day at one time we could see our breath as we talked. Looked like at any time we were going to get wet but it never happened, all fish caught on Skipjack. Totals for the day 6 fish total weight, 82.8lbs, average fish 13.8lbs, not bad I'll take that on any winter trip......Doc

    It looks like the Blues are easier to find than the skipjacks. :) I doubt I have any skips left in my freezer.

    UFM82 The one others want to be

    The Ohio River is Kentucky's along the Ky/Oh border. Kentucky DNR would be the governing body and they have no restrictions on blue cats.

    Nice feeshes- little cold though.
