hey all .... just thought maybe you could give me some helpful information, i am planning on taking a friend and heading to the Ohio River to try for some big cat's during June. My problem is that i've never fished the Ohio River and would love some advice as to some good spots that offer access from the bank. I seen in someone's posting or web page showing Pike Island Dam and that looked nice, i looked it up on a web search and found it is located near Wheeling WV / Ohio line on Rt. 7 ... would this be a place worth trying in June ? Any info would be greatly appreciated, i just want to get away from the local lake fishing for cat's and spend the evening/night on the Ohio River in hopes of catching some nice cat's. Also, i Thank everyone for all the posts in my previos thread ... i have since purchased some 8/0 circles and also i found some small 2" torpedo slip/peg floats so i can try the rig that was mentioned to keep the bait off bottom, i can't wait to try that rig !!!!! Thanks and GOOD CATTIN'
