    think about the size of that river and all the places for fish to be... you have to put yourself were the fish are instead or waiting for them to come to you. move around and dont make the mistake that i see so many bank fisherman makeand think you have to cast to the middle of the river to catch fish..

    Hey Eric, biga tought me more about catfishin in an hour one day than what I had previously learned in my whole life.:confused2: He has alot of wisdom in this sport like many others on this site and one thing I learned is you can ask him any question you want about catfishin and if he knows the answer he will tell ya and if he dont he will tell he dont.

    Ill take all the info I can get! Us bank fishermen are so much more limited on where we can fish than boat fishermen. I throw anywhere from 15 feet out to as far as I can throw it.
