    Welcome to the BOC Mark… It’s a great place to learn and share of our passion for catfishing… Dude, awesome pic in the avatar, I see you still haven’t shed your velvet yet :smile2::smile2::smile2:… lots of folks on here live close by ya, check out the Gateway Catfish Club section under “CATFISHING TOURNAMENTS” on the main menu… As far as blues this time of year on the river I would be checking out the holes off and out of the main currant… use your electronics and cover alot of water looking, they’ll stack up now so when you find em there should be several. Bait situation can be spotty right now, getting wet throwing the net can get abit chilly also… Lots of folks use frozen skipjack as their go to bait this time of year… Again welcome, I think the pic is great, definitely a conversation piece.

    Welcome aboard Scott, Type of catfish really does not matter, their a cold blooded creature so, slow in the winter. You gotta' get get up close and personal to catch them in the winter.

    The Mississippi river is finally at a decent level to get out there and locate the holes right now. The dikes are showing again, and it looks like the water temp is around 38 when I checked this morning. Weather man says mid 40's this weekend, so you might want to go find them.

    Welcome to the site, and maybe I'll see you around fishin around the Festus area.
