    Hi. My name's Jamie. Was searching the web recently and found this site. I've been looking at topics but haven't made a post yet. This seems like a great website with a lot of great information and people on it. I'm pretty new to catfishing but not fishing in general. I used to do a lot of bass fishing. I fish Lake Shawnee quite a bit but never caught or seen anything big caught out of there but have heard of some big fish being in there. I'm still looking to catch my first flathead and blue cat, my biggest cat ever is a 9.2lb channel. Anyone have any suggestions on where I can catch my first flathead and blue around here? I bank fish since I don't have a boat. Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself. C-ya.

    welcome aboard Jamie!i also live in topeka and there are plenty of places within a 20-30 minute drive to be in flathead territory.perry lake being one,clinton aint bad,and pomona would be another safe bet.i would say that this time of year you would prob have your best luck with some live gills up in a creek or river arm off one of these lakes.as for catching a bluecat, you shouldnt have a problem catching a few at milford.Jim Leonard(catfish fever)lives at the lake:lol: and would prob be more than happy to tell or show you where to do some bank fishing.let us know if you have anymore questions.-caleb

    Welcome to the BOC Jamie, these brothers have great information, & extremly wise.
    I fish down in the south central Kansas so I can't help you much but I've heard Milford is great for all kinds of catfish. Good luck.
