    Hello, Darryl here. My other thread was moved by an administrator to the boating section so I wanted to introduce myself again here where I might find some locals.

    I am currently looking for a boat but right now am bank-bound looking for catfish on the Mississippi River near Winfield, MO lock and dam 25.

    Any help on where to fish from the bank at night, or day for that matter, not having much luck so far. Have two boys 12 and 14 I take with me.

    If the boat thing works out I'll be asking lots of questions regarding that also.

    Great site and thanks in advance.

    Darryl

    Welcome Darryl, the BOC is a great site that gives us all a platform to brainstorm and learn more of the sport we all love. Full of great information and up to date reports, I know you'll enjoy it. I see we're neighbors, pm me with some time frames and we'll enjoy seeing them boys catch some fish on the river.

    Welcome to the BOC, it is a great place to hang out and meet chicks (actually it is a horrible place to hang out and meet chicks.)

    Welcome, to your bank fishing location request I will mention a lately much talked about prop-eating ramp called Cuiver Island MDC Access off of Dalbow road just east of Cuiver River. It's on the Cuiver Island chute and people catch a lot of fish right off the ramp. Last fall there were three guys fishing and camping there while I was running lines and they greatly outfished me. After 4 or 5 days they got tired of eating catfish. You can follow the bank downstream to get to more fishing spots and less people. Another spot which would have you fishing the main channel is Sandy Creek MDC at dam 25 (Winfield). Walk along the bank upstream untill you get to a break in the riprap. People sometimes have luck there. There is another primitive ramp upstream a ways, I've never used it but there might be bank fishing there. It's easy to get to but I can't remember how right now, sorry!

    Good Luck and tight lines

    Thanks to all for the replies and welcomes.

    Had another thread going about buying a boat.

    That is now done as of today. Thanks to what I learned here I upped my budget a bit and got the 2072 SeaArk, Cooks Edition. 40 gallon live-well, fold-down seats etc.....

    It is a freakin' TANK and I am happy.

    Delivery next week.
