Hi all, I'm looking for anyone with experience or information about the area I fish. I live in Harrison county (Right on I-35, south of the Iowa border). I was wondering if you know of good places to catfish in my area. How about the Grand River or Big Creek. I've trotlined on the East fork of the Grand up at Denver, Missouri, but I'd like to find something closer. I'm crazy about creek/small river fishing, but if any of you have know about the other bodies of water in this area, I'd be thrilled. I live 1/3 mile away from a fork of Big Creek. My grandpa used to pull monsters out of this same area (decades ago). It never completely dries up, though it does run low some of the time. The reason I mention this is because I've fished there (only with jigs and spinnerbaits) and caught bluegill, largemouth bass, and some sort of strange fish with rows of barbs coming out of it's forehead, but am now wondering about the catfish situation. I'm afraid of trying worms, since the sucker type fish with barbs and bluegill will probably just clean my hook. Any suggestions on what type of bait to use in a small, slow-moving creek?
