    my name is russell and i've been reding here for a little over a week. i've been a wannabe catfisherman all my life, but only in the past week have i had good success. it's amazing what you can do when you learn tips from others. up until now i've been going on what my dad taught me years ago.

    anyway, i've caught 4 channels, two blues, a turtle and a snake if some kind :confused2: in the past week.

    i have been fishing a creek that meets the arkansas just outside of cleveland. i've also finally been using the cast net i bought last year to catch shad for bait.

    again, thanks for letting me read your input.

    Glad you are here, I think you are going to like it.

    If you haven't tried it, try some fresh cut bait fished on a carolina rig. If you are fishing from the bank, try and find areas around the bends in the river if possible.

    You have joined the most informative board on the internet. If you got a question, this is the place to ask it.

    If you wanna shoot the bull... well there's a lot of that goin on all the time.

    I like this board just for the ability to brag to friends and meet more new friends. I hope to meet you in person soon. In the meantime, keep posting until you can reach the first rung of the ladder...10 Then the board really opens up to you.

    Speaking of brag... I managed to boat a 42 pound blue today from the mouth of Little Greenleaf Creek.
