    Im new to the BOC and have found some very useful information on various catfish tips. But im in need of some more general information about locating sand flats. Ive been fishing for years but never educated myself on location and indentification of structure. When im catfishing I usually fish the mississippi just below the chain of rocks bridge in granite city il. Ive caught some nice ones around 18 to 20 lbs but never the big ones seen on BOC. Im in need of some good advice to lead me to the big one. Any advice would be great. Thanks

    I caught the one on my profile right there . Click the pic for a better pic. I live right by there. Let me know when you are going and I can show you some good spots.
