This is my first post and thought I would introduce myself. I am a reformed bass fisherman. Chased the tournament trail for many years until I finally realized I had turned fishing into work. I quit fishing completely for about 3 yrs. (That is how long it took me to realize how much I hated golf.) Decided to get back to my passion of fishing but decided to try to enjoy it and relax a bit so decided to learn as much as I could about crappie fishing. Found a crappie fishing site, learned a lot about crappie fishing and made a bunch of good friends. I have now taken an interest in learning about catfishing. Found this site and have been lurking around for a while. Have learned alot and it seems there are a lot of good people on here I hope to meet. I live in Columbia, Mo. and have a condo at the 14mm of Lake of the Ozarks. I hired Steve Brown and went on 2 drift fishing guide trips on Truman in the last couple of months. Learned a lot from Steve. I have been trying to implement his tactics in my area of LOZ and have had some luck with it. (Largest so far is 21lbs.). I have been fishing all my life but know virtually nothing about catfishing so I hope you will tolerate all my stupid questions. Not only do I want to learn more about catching catfish at LOZ, but with the Mo. River in my backyard, I want to learn as much about river fishing as I can as well.
