    Just looking for people with some different ideas on bank fishing. I dont have a boat so I am learning the ropes of bank fishing the missouri. Just moved back up here from Branson and had my first Missouri river fish in years. I takled the river yesterday by the riverfront park, fished some old junk on the bank and produced a 6 ld blue on shad sides...was pleasantly happy. Also found a park on up by sears. by that time it was raining really bad so i didnt get to walk down to what looked like a wingdamn and some heavy current. Any ideas?

    Welcome to the wonderful BOC when your bank fishing, I would look for some structure in the waters, or you can fish off some sand bars they usually have alot of cats that comes close during the night to feed off smaller fish.

    Welcome Ben, You'll find alot of nice people on here and enough knowledge to sink a battleship. I'm fairly new myself and all these guys have really helped me a bunch. Dont ever be afraid to ask questions about fishin or locations because there is no such thing as a dumb question. I'm still drilling these guys with questions about Truman and the BLUECATS and they just keep giving me answers and good ones at that. Search thru this website with a fine tooth comb and you'll be a much better fisherman for it. Paul

    Well BEN WELCOME to the BOC/SOC.I see your from theKC area.so that puts us about as far apart state wise as we can get.I live by the mississippi on the east side.From Louisiana you can look accross the river and see Il. Too bad your not closer. I do a lot of bank fishing myself.Now if I could just learn to catch some of them:roll_eyes: Just get out there and experment,but stay safe.Just cause your on a bank accidents can still happen.

    Welcome to the BOC Ben. I am new to this site also. I have fished the Mo. river for years. Cought a lot of fish but never any big ones. I Have asked many questions and got a lot of good answers. Mr. T seams to have a lot of knowledge. Just keep asking those questions. We used to fish from the bank a lot. we would get out on the dykes and fish the ends and in some of the back water. Cought mostly Chanel cats.
