Hey guys, the conservation department has a catfishing presentation scheduled for June 5 at 1PM at the Burr Oaks Woods conservation area. Philip Brinkley, a DNR naturalist, will be handling most of the presentatation. He was, however, looking for some help regarding the river portion of the presentation so Bluejay was kind enough to throw my name out there. Looks like I'll be helping out by providing a short talk on typical Missouri river tactics for big fish, bait, and gear.

Here is a link to the Burr Oaks section of the MDC site: http://www.mdc.mo.gov/areas/cnc/burroak/

It should be a good, informative day and I'm sure if nothing else watching me stutter in front of a crowd will be amusing :smile1: I'm sure Phil will have some great information and insight into fish behavior and biology - I'm very much looking forward to hearing his presentation.

If you don't have anything going on that day come on out for what should be a fun day of catfishing information and tips!

Thanks John - I'm planning on asking if it's OK to tape my part of it. If so I'll post it to my website.

Jon - thanks - I didn't know reservations were required.

I need to get cracking on my presentation but a big part of mine will be a PowerPoint showing Google Earth views of typical kinds of spots I fish with notes and graphics showing boat and bait position, etc. Other slides will cover screen shots from the graph so folks can see the underwater part of what I look for in a spot.

I'll touch some on bait and gear as well but as most of you know it doesn't make a darn what bait or gear you're using if the fish aren't there to appreciate it. If you're in the wrong spot you might as well be throwing that $6 skipjack in your driveway on a Snoopy pole.

Guys that have fished with me or seen my posts on here know I don't fish for bites or numbers of fish but big fish. It makes for some loooooong boring nights but when it works it makes for some really interesting fishing.

I'm the first to admit I'm far from an expert but I spend a lot of time out there and I'll do my best to share the useful stuff I've learned.

I'm really looking forward to Phil Brinkley's presentation (the fish biology part, not so much the set line and fish cleaning part :smile1:) because the nature of the fish and how we as anglers follow their lead determine our success.
