  2. VIRGINIA LAKES / RESERVOIRS
    Hey all, new to the site. Was thinking of going out to Lake Frederick to try for some channel catfish as I heard they're stocked in the lake. I've seen a few comments online suggesting the lake can be a bit crowded, but nothing very definitive. Would appreciate any experience anyone has with the...
  3. LOCAL INDIANA TALK
    How come the fish trade doesn't have many cat fish. I mean they have cat fish but I like that flathead, blue, and channel cat fish look. The majority of the ones in the fish trade don't even look like cat fish. You can't keep a cat fish unless it is a certain size. I want to raise my own cat...

  5. MEMBER FISHING REPORTS (BECOME A FISHING LEGEND)
    Been fishing as much as possible- pushing for 1,000 fish for the year and only 100 away!. Catfish have made the bulk of the fish, with most 3-6 lbs, but topped recently by this nice channel at 28" and just under 11lbs! Drum, carp, trout, bluegill, green sunfish, bass, ( another IGFA grand slam...
  6. Forum Announcements and Support
    Has anybody ever thought about turning contact lens case holders into rattles like the versa rattles from whisker seekers you can put a couple of BB's and in it drill a small hole in it to run your line through or you could attach it to a sinker slider. I haven't tried it myself but do you think...

  8. MEMBER FISHING REPORTS (BECOME A FISHING LEGEND)
    So, I admit, I'm a pathologic fisherman.....fortunately, there's no 12 step program and I wouldn't take it anyway.......not so many catfish or carp so far, but pushing 500 fish, including a bass grand slam (3 species in a day), a bass super grand slam (4 species in a day), some trout, panfish...
  9. INDIANA CATFISHING
    Hey guys, My buddy and i went down to Monroe last week. I have a 20 foot lowe catfish. We fished the pinegrove ramp area. Went up into the creek portion and anchor fished for a while. Its got some killer structure. We were using cut shad, live shad, live gills for bait. Fished a 6 rod spread...
  10. LOCAL KANSAS TALK
    March 10th was the day my daughter could no longer wait another day to wet a line. She got a brand new catfish pole for Christmas and she intended to break it in! It was a bit colder then I was hoping for that day (46°F) but that wasn't going to stop her. I decided to try out the 25 acre...

    I posted a similar "truths" on the Carp Anglers Group, and thought it appropriate (with minor modifications) for this group. Edit at will!!............ THE TEN TRUTHS OF CATFISHING 1. You will not catch a catfish if you do not fish 2. No matter where you are fishing, the largest catfish are...
  12. MEMBER FISHING REPORTS (BECOME A FISHING LEGEND)
    Hello everyone, I just wanted to celebrate my first flathead. The irony of this is the fact that I’m from Louisiana and have grown up fishing the Red River, blues and channels are not lacking but never a flathead. Moved to Kansas for work, found a nearby spot to sit and fish a while (log jam in...
  13. Fishing Reel Review
    This year I became interested in round baitcasting reels for cat fishing. I never thought of using baitcasters for cat fishing before, but after watching several videos where guys were using them to haul in monster cats I thought I'd give it a go. For my first round reel I got this Abu...
  14. INDIANA LAKES / RESERVOIRS TALK
    All- Had the pleasure of fishing with Dan(Jesus Saves) on my home lake last night, Lake Monroe. It's no secret that there are plenty of fish in the lake, and its 10,000 acres can seem daunting. Half the battle of any fisherman is eliminating unproductive water. The bigger the lake, the...
  15. LOCAL OHIO TALK
    Can anybody tell me what species this looks like? It has the face and tale of a bullhead, but the length and spots of a channel, what is it!?
  16. ILLINOIS LAKES / RESERVOIRS TALK
    I haven't gone fishing in a while. Planning on going fishing at Clinton Lake this Sunday to catfish. Last time I was there was about three years ago. Any good spots and what kind of bait should I use? I was thinking the Dewitt Bridge since I'm bank fishing. I've got nightcrawlers and chicken...
  17. VIRGINIA RIVERS TALK
    I'm new to the forum, and I wish I had known it about before my second annual trip to virginia to go catfishing for really anything but had little results I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong. I was using a 8/0 circle hook with cut shad on a Carolina rig with a 3oz sinker and was dropping anchor...
  18. ILLINOIS RIVERS TALK
    Has anyone been fishing on the big muddy yet? I've been watching the water temperatures, it seems like the time is here for flatheads.

  20. KENTUCKY LAKES / RESERVOIRS TALK
    Sept 30th. Since the Ohio River is so high my grandson and I went to a local lake to fish for catfish. We got out lines in the water 11:45, and we both caught a bluegill by 12:00. We then took the bluegill on our catfish rod for catfish bait. Around 12:15 I had some type of fish biting on the...
