I guess I am not a newbie, but to serious big catfishing, I am. I have fished SW PA for +20 years....I am currently 31. I have really got interested in targeting bigger cats, Flatheads in particular. I have found a great deal of info on the site already from you guys and you have all been helpful. Especially with bait. I also recently obtained a 21' Sea Ray so I will now be able to hit the Monongehela River instead of just bank fishing. My questions are mostly dealing with gear, rigs and terminal tackle. I grew up using hook and split shots on everything and maybe a slip sinker. I was hoping I could hear some advice on complete set ups for river fishing....Rod n Reels, Line weight and type, and what kind of rigs...And a picture of how you set up your favorite rig would be awesome. I would also like to know how you guys hook different baits like blue gills, chubs, etc. I am not trying to steal anybodys way of doing things, but I want to get started on the right track if I am going to put the time and money into it. Thanks for any help you can give me!
