First off let me introduce myself, I just started on this forum a few day age and I am really interested in what you all have to say from the post that I have read. I have lived in Tucson for most my life but moved to Mesa for dental school. I love to fish for catfish, not a big fan of catching anything else. Like everyone who has catfished a lot I want to get my hands on a large cat. I have always done well catfishing but the largest one that I have caught is about 10lb, most of them are 6-8lb, I cant get over that hump. I have all the set ups for big cats but no luck. I know that you all are fishing the river, went out yesterday just to find a spot and I am pretty sure I found where to go, but if you all have a good location please let me know. Also how do you rig you pole, what is your set up, I am starting to think that I am doing this all wrong. Maybe I am not going at the right time. Basically I am looking for tips and advice for fishing the river. The SPR canals are getting a little old, and I am only pulling out 5-6lb fish from them. I am ready to catch some good fish, and I am willing to take any advice that I can get. Thank a lot for all the help.
