I have looked on the Internet for info about fishing and this sight is by far the best one I have ever been on. I have read a lot of the articles and have learned a lot. I am new to the sight and would like some info on how to catch large bait for Flatheads out of the Mississippi river. I have never fished the Mississippi. I am planning a fishing trip to the Lagrange Mo. area in the middle of sept. Hows the fishing that time of year? I do fish the Missouri river around Brunswick,Miami. Mo. I catch shad with a through net. any help will be appreciated.
