I have been out to the River (both of them) several times, I don't catch fish. I have tried nightcrawlers, perch, skipjack,shad,goldfish. About the only thing I have not tossed yet is a low yeild explosive device (yet). I have read everything I can find both here and there. I've tried saying my prayers and may have made a pact with the devil. I've gone in the day and at night. Still no fish. I'm a visual learner and do best if somebody just shows me how to do something. So would somebody just take me to the river in the Saint Charles area on the riverbank and just show me how to catch a frigging catfish. Tell me what I'm doing wrong, and show me what gear I need to get it done? I can read about it all day long but it just don't sink in the way it does if I see and do it. Friday evening/Sunday evening would work great. I'm not much of a morning person. We can talk fishing, guns, bikes, gals, hell to learn how to catch fish I would even talk (listen and nod a lot) about baseball. I teach people how to shoot, so if one of you guys is a novice shooter or just wants to learn now to put holes in things with a pistol I'd be happy to return the favor.
