first off i want to say a very anticipated goodbye to winter. i have spent all winter dreaming of this day when its officially over. though i did catch a surprising number of catfish, channel catfish. and some of them where way bigger than i thought i would get. but now that the warm weather is returning and i no longer have to freeze my butt off fishing and i want to move up the catfish food chain to flatheads. i have tried but without any success. its fair to say my chances are limited without a boat, but i know it can be done without one. maybe my bait selection isnt right, i genrally use live goldfish, minnows, crawdads, and frogs (when i can catch them). now im not expecting anyone to give up thier super secret spots, just some help in locating them. see i come from california and i spent much of my life there on the delta and the feather river where it dosent take much past dropping in alomost any kind of bait and pulling out a monster. but here in missouri you gotta work for it it seems, and i like that. i now spend most of my time on the missouri river trying to learn anything i can about catfishing. so if anyone at all can throw me an idea of where to look or what to look for in order to get a chance at flatheads i would very much appreciate it. thanks guys, please be safe out there.
