    Have been looking for a catfish forum and ran across this one. Hope to visit and share with many in the near future. Had one of my best years this summer drifting over at Toronto using fresh shad. Haven't been for a few weeks but want to get out again before I turn my attention to crappies.

    Good fishing to everyone!!

    WElcome to the Brotherhood of Catfishing. Happy to have you among us. Hey why give up the catfishing just cause of cool/cold weather. You know those kittys get hungry in the winter also. Crappie fish if you want but don't give up on the KITTYS.

    For so many years thats what I did but about 10 years ago we started fishing for crappies in the late fall and winter. Its just something about getting over a school of crappies that makes you want to go back for more. When that water temp hits around 40 they just seem to stack up on one another and make for a good experience.

    regards,

    Welcome aboard John I think you'll find this a very informative and friendly board.

    I've winter crappie fished at Toronto several times and hope to get back to Walnut Creek once my friend from Neodesha lets me know they are biting down there. I grew up about 7 miles north of Fredonia.

    thanks to one and all for all the welcomes!! Looks like this is a nice place to share stories and ask questions and provide imput. Just curious...ALL of you aren't just limited to catfishing...are you? We kinda go in seaons here. Crappies are gonna get hot in a month and many of us will opt for the light tackle and chase them. Don't think that we don't think about those cats when were fishing for the crappies for we do...lol!!

    regards,
