if anyone has the new catfish insider i would highly recommend checking out the european catfishing rigs article. the last rig is called a poly ball rig. for fishing the verdigris river by bank that is perfect. doesnt do any good to throw a three way rig to the bottom if the fish are suspended in a school of shad, and thats why i think its hard to fish that river(or similar rivers) when stuck on the bank. of course you can use a bobber but that requires alot of attention to fish that rig. now the poly ball rig will keep your bait in place just underneath the surface to about 4 or so feet deep. you can do longer but it becomes a chore. i did modify the rig a little bit by using a standard three way knot (double loop surgeon knot) inbetween the float and the swivel and added alittle weight to the float to keep it in front of the rig when casting. i tried it out at lock 18 monday and it worked perfect. i got one good bite but i wasnt paying attention until i saw the rod come back up and the float reappear. also wasnt the right time of day to be out there. but i would definatly check that article out if your a bank fishermen. me personally, it revolutionized my approach to that river. im gonna call it the verdigris river rig since i modified it... or is that cheating..
