    I grew up around there, so I already know about the Finley and James Rivers for eating size cats as well as pretty much every other fish God created, (and possibly a few others too) Lake Springfield for the eating size glow in the dark cats, and once a year I go to Pomme de Terre, so if there's any good waters other than Table Rock, I'd love to hear about them.

    I live about 5 miles from Stockton Lake. It has lots of channels and flatheads and a few blues. Not many people fish for them unless they use trotlines.

    I Fish Stockton some, as its the closest lake to me. Its an all around decent lake for about every species! I've been spending more time on Truman lake and the osage arm and river the last couple of years. Lot bigger catfish up there and better crappie fishing. I usually focus on catching walleye if I'm on stockton, but i run some juglines there ocasionally too!
