    Did anybody make it to the sports show in G.I. 2 weekends ago? I made a point of going to see Catdaddy Shumway's seminar. Had some good info. and a good talk. He's charging $225 a day for a guided fishing trip!!! I'm retired now, maybe I should go into the catfish guide service!!??:big_smile:

    Bownero- I live in Cozad and fish the tri-county near here. Midway, G. Canyon, Plum Creek...All less than a half hour from my driveway. Maybe you read the July 07 issue of Great Plains Game and Fish? There was an article about tri-county catfishing, I was in that article. Will also be featured in Nebraskaland mag. this summer (flatheads). Will be hittin' the catfish hard in a couple weeks (hopefully!) as soon as the ice is off and can get my boat in the water. Am including a pic of one of the bigger flatheads we caught on the tri-county.
