    Mark Welcome to the BOC, from So. Illinois. I would look at the months of april thru june. I would catch some skipjack to use for bait and would fish this on a baitcaster using a no-roll sinker carolina rig with a 7/0 Kahle hook. This should give you a starting suggestion. Good fishing.:0a18::0a25::0a25::0a25:

    Mickey's got it right, fresh cut bait and no roll sinkers, that is a good stretch of river to fish, and spring spawn is on the way. Right now is a great time to fish.

    Welcome to the group!! I've only been here a little over a week myself but have learned a lot. Pretty much anywhere around Paris is good. That's why they call it Catfish Country. April and May are really good fishing months for us when we are there. Hope you have a good time. Let us know how it goes!:big_smile:
