Hello to everyone, I am essentially new to catfishing. I can remember setting trotlines and bobber fishing with my uncles when I was a kid, but that was almost 30 years ago. I was primarily a fly-fisher(yeah I usually caught flies instead of fish), until a couple of years ago. The other day while bass fishing with a garlic scented Carolina Rig, something just took off. I had no Idea what it was until about 10 minutes later when I pulled in a 19# Blue Cat. Wow, that was more fun than any fish I have ever caught. Since summer has set in, I am going to try my hand at strictly catfishing. I am currently using my bass rig; Abu 5600 C4, G-Loomis 6'6" MH rod, 15# line. I have used several baits with decent success on Channels and Blues, garlic soaked hot dogs, chicken livers, worms, shrimp, and some dip baits. If anyone has any gear advice I would appreciate it. Oh yeah I fish out of a kayak or from the bank. I've got an old fiberglass boat that I have been working on for a couple of years, but still have a lot of work to do.
