    I never even thought about going out at kaw point...I thought you would catch anything there because of pollution but now i see all these pictures of fish from that area so i know where im going this year..Actually drove down there today to check it out.

    I see. My brother & I went there once last fall, fished for about 12 hrs coverin just about a mile of the ramp side and didnt get anything. it was just a bad night, it has all the makings of a good hole. it was nice out there though, nobody bothered my work truck w/ all my lawn equip. on it nor said anything about the fire i built.

    the flat in my pic was caught in the middle of town by the new topeka blvd bridge and my brother got a 25# 800 ft. up river from the wier. we did great this past year on the Kaw. those were the 2 biggest but we caught alot of 10# & under and filled a deep freeze and the freezer of a side by side fridge. year before when were mainly fishin ponds, lakes, and small rivers we didnt do as well. prob just a bad year though cuz cats are everywhere in kansas. best night we had that year was in a pond smack dab in the middle of town. we got 16 channel, biggest 6#, smallest 2 1/2#. all in a cpl hrs.

    hey kmcalester I am in the same position I am somewhat afraid to go out on the mighty mo all by myself. I'm a channel cat catchin veteran but I'm new to fishin rivers. I swim well but that current intimidates me. I've got an 18' bass boat set up for the missouri and I'm working on my 16' jon boat {i've got 17 rod holders at last count }for the Kaw. But I could use somebody who can teach me to throw a cast net and who knows the river.I could set you up on 50-100 channel catfish in return. I fish small community lakes a lot. give me a pm when it warms up. I only work 4 days a week so I'm off every sat sun mon Eric :big_smile:

    Most people will leave you alone there. Security drives thou every so often all day and night. Plus on friday and saturday nights there's a lot of boat traffic. As far as the kansas dumping into the missouri I have only seen one person do any good from the boat ramp down to the missouri. This kid just hit it perfect though and I mean perfect. That night nobody could do anything wrong. He had over 160 pounds of fish cought off the boat ramp. His big one was over 60.
