    Hey guys just bought a boat and finally getting out on the lakes like i have always wanted to. I have set my sights on getting good at cattin in mark twain, Anybody have any tips on trying to find out what they are doing late summer fall. I went out last weekend back in southfork and pole fished by some trees with no luck. I have heard they are nesting now, So does that shut em down for a while?

    Yes, If they are on the nest, they won't hardly bite at all. They should be about done in the lakes though I would think. I'm not much on lake fishing for Catfish, but I do know they nest in lakes before they nest in rivers.

    just got back from mark twain yesterday and yes the fishing has slowed down. caught a 17 lb blue and she was full of eggs so it will probably be slow for the next couple of weeks. i live here in moberly so give me a shout some time and we can run up there one of these days and get into some fish. i have a boat also so if u dont wanna take yours we can take mine.
