I moved to Missouri one and a half years ago from Huron Ohio to Union Mo. I fish the Meramec most of all and from talking to most of the dedicated catfisherman that they prefer setting trott lines with bluegill, while watching two groups check thier lines I could see that they only rebaited thier lines instead of catching a occasional fish, I know im not fishing in Ohio but Im wondering if the fishing is so different that I'm missing something? Ive tried my methodes on the same river all around the Trott lines and have had no trouble catching more than I ever caught in Ohio on my type of lines and cought bigger fish!! Im not saying you all are not as good as me , but how can my methods have such differnt resulst on the same fish. also why dont the Bait shops around here sell large minnows or chubs?
