I live in Burgaw on the North east cape fear. I just got started fishing catfish with rod and reel, and just wondering what tips you can give me. I have done alot of bush hooks, and had good luck. I found that rod and reel is more challenging and more rewarding. So far all we have done is rode around and marked fish, tossed the anchor and waited. I have caught a few fish doing this. Do you guys set up somewhere and wait or do you drift? Any help would be appreciated.
