    Hello to all,
    I live close to the Mississippi, way up here in the Northeast corner of Iowa. My question - How and where do you decide to fish for 'ol wiskers?
    Thanks,
    Noel

    Look for structure like fallin trees, bridge pillers, swerling water, dams are a good spot.Feeder creeks are good especally at the mouth of them after a rain.Do you fish lakes or rivers?The more info you give us about the places you fish the better we can help,you really didnt give enough info but this is a start.

    Head to some of the area baitshops and talk to the people there. They can tell you the popular spots. Then get your bait and head out, The people you meet while fishing can give even more info about your area,what the fish like best for bait etc.. Or maybe you already know someone who fishes for cats, ask if you can tag along. Otherwise just get out and look around for log jams, river bends, incoming creeks, dams. There are always fish under the dam. You have to put in some time on the water so you can build up a knowledge of where and what and how. You will find all kinds of useful info on here as to baits to try,types of rods & reels, hooks etc...The only thing left is to traipse up and down the river bank all summer and see what works for you. Good luck.
