    Fishing after the storm Good morning, I went fishing about 2 hours after a storm and cold front pushed through this weekend. I don’t normally do great after a cold front, but this week was different. I think the fall bite over ruled the cold front slow down. After I found them the bite was...

    The wife and I had a great weekend of camping/fishing. It was awful windy but it sure was nice to get away from work. The grand kids came over for one night of camping and by the next day I was ready to go back to work to recover. Hahaha

    the bite seems to be picking up in my neck of the woods in western Kentucky. Frozen skipjack is doing the job in few holes. Nothing huge yet but the bite is getting steady.

    WARNING: "Graphic" photos of fish innards ahead. I've tried looking up everything and haven't found anything on these things.

  8. 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...

    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...

    Been fishing as much as possible- pushing for 1,000 fish for the year and only 100 away!.

    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...

    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...

    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...
  16. 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...

    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...
  19. 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...

    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...
