  1. Flathead Catfish
    I am hoping to do some serious flatheading this year. I moved to Kansas, and the flatties get a lot bigger here than they do in Michigan. I believe I have a good chance of beating my pb, but since I didn't have a scale until this last Christmas, I don't know what my pb is... What do you guys...

  4. LOCAL KANSAS TALK
    Hey guys, We're out here to find the monsters on the Kansas and Missouri rivers and we're interested to see what you've caught and what city you're in. Let's see it! My buddy Jo fought this 47.5# Flat the other night at the Kansas River out in Shawnee, KS. I also fell in the river trying to...
  5. Terminal Tackle Review
    Recently I've started targeting bigger fish, I've been bottom fishing a lake near by with bluegill as bait. It has treated me with several nice sized channal catfish (5-8lbers) . Today I hook the biggest fish of my life, I'm assuming a flathead atleast 20lb. I was running 30lb mono with a slip...

    Thought I would share some good memories catching those cats this year!
  7. 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...
  8. KANSAS LAKES / RESERVOIRS TALK
    I've been going out and shore fishing by the inlet to the lake (the waterfall), behind the firehouse, and that circle drive off Dennis. Other times I take my kayak back in the creek that feeds into the lake. That's mainly where I've been fish. Mostly all after sunset. I always use live...
  9. General Conversation
    Hey guys, I’m fairly new here and would like some information and/or tips for putting catfish structure in some ponds. I live in Minnesota near maple Grove and have driven by and fished a few gravel pits in the area. I’ve seen a few small catfish in them, but would like to encourage them to...
  10. OHIO RIVERS TALK
    Howdy, folks. Just wondering if anybody has had much luck for flatheads on the Maumee near Liberty Center. I fished it a few times last year and didn't manage a bite.
  11. OHIO RIVERS TALK
    Flathead fished for 2 days near Napoleon (June 48th and 5th). Not a dang bite. I think it's odd how there isn't a lot of bait to be caught in the river. We tried hard to catch a bluegill but failed. Ran cutbait for 20 hours with no takers. Any advice? I think they're spawning to be honest.
  12. LOCAL KANSAS TALK
    Anyone caught any big flathead over at Geary ? I know I’ve caught a bunch of small ones. Just wondering if there are any bigger ones in there.
  13. LOCAL KANSAS TALK
    Alright guys, I made a similar post last year and had a few replies. I'm stationed on Fort Riley and I'm trying to get on some fish. Specifically Flathead. I checked out Rocky Ford and had some luck there. I've also fished a spot or two on the Kaw and have had 0 luck. Fishing with a mix of...

  15. Fishing Reel Review
    Hey all, Been reading a lot of great discussions on this page and thought I would throw out a few questions for my first post. I really started getting into catfishing about five or so years ago and after buying cheap gear the past couple years I am finally ready to step up my game and buy some...
  16. OHIO RIVERS TALK
    August 13 th. Since my brother had not caught a fish and his health is a problem, he decided to hire a guide for a trip. We meet the guide at 06:00 in the morning with his and my help my brother was able to get into the boat. The guide provided the bait and my rods. My brother insisted on...

  18. OHIO RIVERS TALK
    August 5th. I picked up my brother at 07:45 for a bank catfishing trip to the Ohio River. It was a perfect day for fishing bright sun but mild temperature. The river was still muddy with slow current. We got 5 rod in the water by 08:45.with all kinds of bait: such as fresh skipjack, shad...
  19. VIRGINIA RIVERS TALK
    Ever since I was a little kid, I have loved fishing for catfish. Maybe it's because it was the first type of fish that I caught with my Dad from the pay pond around the corner from my neighborhood. Maybe it's just the simplicity in fishing for them. Put a gob of bait on a hook under a bobber (or...
  20. Terminal Tackle Review
    I have always used circle hooks when fishing for channel catfish, but I know every fish is not the same. I have heard alot about kahle hooks. If I fall asleep on the job one night on my boat, and my baitclicker is sounding off like crazy do I need to set the hook on a kahle hook? What make...
