Before joining this site, I would go catfishing a lot. I didn't know a lot about it, but enough to catch fish regularly. The only time I caught a fish over 5lbs was at one of "those" lakes. I just couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. Ever since joining this site, my fishing has gone to new levels. I still haven't hooked anything huge, but My average fish is much bigger. With the knowledge I've gained from this site, I was able to catch my first flathead. 13lbs is now my largest. I've also caught a channel cat over 10lbs. The way I see it, It's only a matter of time before I hook into a trophy flathead or channel, and it's all because of the members on this site. Thank you all for your shared knowledge, kindness, and will to help.
