I have been catfishing a long time at Truman, Smithville, etc. I also trotline and have caught a few fish over 50lbs, but none over 30 on rod and reel. I want to start fishing the missouri and/or Kansas river. I dont think my boat is the best for the river, its a 17.5 foot bass tracker with a 40 merc. I would like to find someone to go with that has expierence.

I live in KCMO and need help to start cathing the big ones in the local rivers.

There's a couple different guides on the Missouri river I know of. One is in Waverly missouri the other is here in Kansas city. Heck I probably could be persuaded to go out and show you the river. A guide really is your best bet though. If you need info on either one give me a PM.

Hey Kevin I'm back from Disneyland and ready to fish.If we go out with Captain Catfish it would run us about 100 apiece if there's 3 of us. I can go any sat sunday or monday. Tried out the mighty Kaw yesterday. I had some fuel line problems so I didn't run that far up. Suprisingly I caught nothing on turkey liver 0r shad sides or Orient express. nightcrawlers on the bottom produced a 26" channel a 30" carp a couple small channels and some drum. Didn't stay there very long cuz I ran out of worms. Was getting bites pretty fast. tried 2 places for Blues with skipjack and had 1 decent bite in 2 hours. Can get to that spot in my bass boat so we can try again this weekend if you want. Might try that and the missouri too if you want. I can go anytime this weekend.:confused2: eric
