I am kinda new to this catfishing thing. i caught some as a kid but never went serious until recently. Did manage to get the wife into it tho and its something we can do together that we both enjoy. However, all we seem to catch in the local lakes and such are little ones. I would like to get into the fish that you guys are talking about out of the missouri river but don't know how to get started. I have a couple of big cat rods and reels spooled with 20lb line but really don't know what to do with them. Any help? I am pretty confident we would be content with a couple of stringers of 5-10lb fish. I do have a 16ft. jon boat with a little trolling motor but no outboard but m looking for one. Thanks in advance for the help I am sure I will get.
