Wet a line and stay awhile!


CELEBRATING over 14 YEARS of providing excellent CATFISHING information for ROD BENDING ACTION in the Cincinnati area of the Ohio River. Blue cats, Flatheads and Channel cats are to be hooked right here in the Downtown Cincinnati river front. I am just an ole retired guy that likes to catfish, I am NOT a catfish guide, I do have a link to a GUIDE for this part of the river on this page if you are seeking a catfish guide trip. Catfishing baits, bank fishing spots, tips from a catfishing guide. Tips for saving money on YOUR catfishing tackle. Information on catfishing baits I have used to catch catfish. Where to go to Catch HUGE channel cats in Canada.

April 13th update: I will be checking out the ramp on the Ohio River west of Cincinnati. The fee to launch is the same as Fredrick’s and is closer to where I like to fish. I hope to be selling my old 14ft. boat sometime soon. The river is slowly getting down and maybe good enough to fish after Easter. Water temperature is getting near 55 degrees so the Skipjack should be showing up at the dams. Tight lines.



With this COLD weather YOU can get a head start on catching some CATFISH by reading this informative Kindle e-book. Just CLICK on the photo and it will connect you to the Amazon book store! So check it out, it cost less than a dozen night crawlers at the bait shop.

March 24th UPDATE: Finally went and got my Ky. fishing license at Latonia Bait shop this afternoon. I paid the taxes on my 2 fishing boats this morning. Still not sure if I should keep the larger boat or not. I can handle the 14ft. boat easily by myself. The 16ft. boat and large trailer is a real chore for me to climb in or out the boat when it is on the trailer. Not sure where I will be launching from either at this time. I have 2 places that are charging the same fee to use their ramp. The new place I been told about is off of KY.route 8 west of Covington. I have not had a chance to check it out, not sure how easy it will to get my trailer down to the ramp area off of route 8.

With the cold weather hanging on it will be at least a couple weeks for 70 year old body to be ready to wet a line. I just hope there are still some catfish left in the river to catch.

BIG CATFISHING ROD BENDING ACTION

02-25-14 UPDATE : The Ohio Catfish Summit meeting was held on Feb 22nd. My brother was here and said there were around 75 folks at the meeting. He said the meeting was pesented in a very good way. He felt ODNR people were going to do their best to enforce the NO CHANNEL CATFISH being brought into OHIO for SALE!! A hot line phone # to call whenever folks saw anything to report was given out at the meeting. I am not sure just how many folks ODNR have to check along the OHIO RIVER, I hope they re-assign a few more to cover the river at least for this year.We all have to just see how much this helps this season.
