    Hay fellows I am new to the board and kinda new to cat fishing too. Any info on equipment, bait, etc would be appreciated. I have for the most part fish for bass. Thanks for any help.

    Welcome to the BOC from a fellow Kentuckian. Try the member's library for some good tips. Whenever I fish I like to try different techniques and baits just to have a little variety. You will find plenty of good info on this site to help you get started.

    Welcome from kentucky to the B.O.C. First of all Read or Watch Videos on Catfishing in General. KEEP IT SIMPLE. Find a Buddy to go with and learn the Ins and Outs while on the Water. Im sure this sight will have all the information ever needed to learn but you still have to be on the water to apply it. Infisherman has several Dvds on catfishing that are very very detailed. :0a23: OHIO RIVER , MONSTER CATFISH , GREAT TIME

    Welcome to the BOC, First you need to decide what catfish your going four. Then read, watch, and fish any time you get a chance to. Your going to as much info on this site than you will ever need just ask.

    Shirley, welcome to the BOC/SOC. Like the others said, check out the members library. Theres lots of great info there. Look through other posts, most likely you will find an answer to a question you had that someone else had asked. Dont be afraid to post question and participate in discussions. Good luck.

    Welcome to the BOC. What kind of gear do you use for Bass? Alot of Bass gear will work quite well for some catfishing, but you'll want to go heavier on the big rivers and for the big fish.

    Welcome aboard, Shirley! The library on here is an unbelievable source of info. And if you don't find an answer to your question, just ask. There are some truly knowledgable folks on here who love to help. Don't forget to check out the BOC Sisterhood section where some of us girls like to hang out!
