    Anyone know a place where I can catch some catfish within 40miles of springfield? The last 6 times ive gone fishing for cats(mainly on CJ brown) Ive got skunked and ticked off by the lil bait stealers. I dont like to fish rivers aswell, so im looking more for a lake or something with stillwater. Thanks.

    Kiser lake has some good channels in it as well as the bonus Hybrid Striped bass ( Wiper) that like to eat cut shad as a bonus.
    Its about 25 minutes NorthWest of Springfield, and has great shore fishing

    i would reccomend the portage lakes............you will probably catch more 15-20 inchers than big ones but there are also some monsters. Also Silver Creek Lake is good catfishing apparantly ther are some flat heads in it and some kid caught a 28lb channel there earlier this year
