    Hello guys and girls. My name is John and I am pretty much a newly addicted catfisherman. I have caught a TON of cats in my life as the Allegheny River is polluted with them, so many that I actually hated catfish because they were very easy to catch. However, one day while jigging fatheads for walleye and smallies I wound up catching a 22 lb. flathead (on 6 lb. mono/UL rod) and let's just say that big 'ol boy got the blood going and changed the way I viewed cats. The little ones are easy, but the big ones are fun :wink:


    At any rate, I look forward to learning some new things on here and getting to know you guys. Thanks for having me; God Bless and good luck!

    LOL...............yeah, but as fun as that fish was I wasn't actually fishing for him so I can't really count him as a personal best. I basically just lucked in to him and I would rather have actually dedicated the time for him like you guys do :wink:
