Hi everyone, I just moved down from Maine for the summer. I fish a little bit back home but I'm new to catching kitties. I'll be on the Cape Fear river doing some bank fishing and need some advice on rod setup and such. I still need to buy a rod and I'm thinking of going with a medium baitcaster and run 14lb Berkley Fireline. I'm thinking of using chicken liver or cut shad for bait but I was also wondering if I could use lures? Don't know how well they respond visually compared to how well they respond with scents. I saw another fish in the river the other day at work but I wasn't sure what kind it was. It looked like a sucker fish of some sort. Any advise on catfish or any of the other fish in the river would be helpful. I'm used to catching bass of all sorts and this will be my first time down south. Ohhh also, I was looking at the license needed and was wondering which one ill need to buy? Where can I get one of these? Thanks for the help guys.
