Ok guys and gals, im sick of seeing so much crap on bass fishing and other types of gamefish. I have decided to try and write a book/guide strictly for catfishing only. It will cover everything from the basics to advance techniques, baits, rods&reels, lines, terminal tackle, descriptions of different species of catfish, fishing rivers and lakes, and different fishing methods etc...

I'd like to ask the boc members to toss in information and things you'd like to see in this book/guide. This project will take quite some time to finish, but i'd like to put something together for the catfisherman in mind. And this will not be for publication or profit. I just simply like to write and would really like to put something like this together for us all to enjoy.

Any input is welcome, feel free to pm me if you have any questions!

This project will be included in our library and will be a great reference tool for new members that are also new to catfishing. All input will be beneficial to our great community. Thanks Everyone.

I hate to burst your bubble but, BOC has written the book on catfishing.
You can search this site and find anything needed in catfishing. All the input you need, is here, has been posted and the library

But like whistler said, anything added to the libary is good ifno.

If you read the site, you will be the best fisherman from a worm on cane pole in a creek for home cooking to the big boys CPR on any lake and river.

But, I will say, dont leave out pollution in your book . The biggest down fall in any fishing.

The first thing that should go into any outdoors book of any sort should be the Scouts Outdoor Law in bold type.

As and American I will do my best to -
  • Be clean in my outdoor manners
  • Be careful with fire
  • Be considerate in the outdoors, and
  • Be conservation minded.
Also the Leave No Trace Policy

Leave No Trace Frontcountry Guidelines
  1. Plan ahead
  2. Stick to trails
  3. Manage your pet
  4. Leave what you find (if its a natural wonder that you find intriguing maybe others will to)
  5. Respect other visitors
  6. Trash your trash (Along with any trash from previous users)

Hope you will include a chapter or three on salt water catfish. Watch for an article from cats4uandme after he creates some recipes and reports on them. Also check out the threads in Salt Water Fishing, where we are shattering some of the myths about salt water catfish.

Thanks, Dan

I appreciate your gumption but you might want to go to the library (local) and check out Keith Suttons book or any of the In-Fisherman series.As somebody mentioned, Dano I think, if you cant find it here you cant find it.WHat would be a worthwhile effort is to catalog everything in some sort of order.I have to laugh every time I see a post that says;"Has anybody tried Gopher guts for Blues"?The answer is yes but if baits were a subtitle then they could be found easily.Good luck!:big_smile:
