    Ok guys, after doing some serious "learning" from this site I am about to give the whiskerfish the old college try. Until recently the only catfish I have caught were pond raised or the occaisional accident while bass, crappie fishing. I have 3 girls that love to fish but let's face it bass and at times crappie don't give em a chance to do a whole lot of catching. This has to be by far the most information packed fishing site I have ever found. Prior to this in the last couple of weeks I have made a few trips to the local lake and caught 5-15 small channels not really knowing where to start. Now AFTER finding and reading and watching and listening ( you get the picture) I feel like I'm ready to actually go out with a game plan. Hopefully Friday evening I will be heading out to target both channels and flatheads. Sorry for the longwinded post but I just want to thank everyone on this site for the free sharing of their knowledge and tactics on this site. Wish me Luck, Curly.:big_smile:
