    Hi all.
    Im new to the brotherhood today.
    I have been catfishing for about 3 years now, and still learning all the time.
    So, a 71 degree day in january gave me the itch... real bad. So I started surfin and found this site. I have been reading it all day, and I gotta say this site has a weath of info all over it.
    I was wanting to know if any of the local guys got to go out today and if they noticed the cats were a bit more active than normal.
    Thanks and I hope to get to know you all real good.

    I went out on Saturday for the majority of the day and only got one bite. I imagine it was probably just a gar but who knows. I tried a variety of baits with little luck. I should have just taken the boat out but the spot I like to fish is pretty far from the boat ramp.

    My inlaws just bought their 3rd house at the lake, near the Hurricane Deck Bridge. We are getting a dock put on it soon. I have fished LOZ extensivly the last couple of years from the shore only. I just bought my first fishing boat and i am sure this season coming up is going to be the most exciting catfishin season yet, for me anyway. :)

    Went out with my dad after work Sat. at 291 hwy on the Mo. We used cut/live gills (couldn't get any shad), liver, worm. Well I got my first fish on the MO. Was thinking that it was empty. I got a 2lb buffalo off of worms. Man I was hoping for a big cat to hit off the cut bait but the worm got me not skunked.

    I hope you only plan on fishing in your new boat early morning and in the evening around that aera of the lake. Or it will be a very exciting boat ride to say the least.
