Thanks
Go east until you leave the state line for the cornhusker state. Pick a reservoir and fish it hard with cutbait.

I'd suggest go somewhere where they get big, perhaps the TN river. I like fresh cutbait in medium to large chunks with lots of "aeration" to them.

My brother talked me into trying the small lake right south of chatfield last night. Didn't go so well. I have lots to learn with catfeesh

I had a friend who likes to fish ponds in the Prospect Valley. He showed me pictures of 20 plus pound cats. Couldn't believe it but the pictures looked extremely authentic.

I was fishing a local pond by my house and had a guy come up and asked if I could let him know when I left. He wanted to fish where I was. He showed me a pic of a 25 lb cat he pulled out of the pond a few nights before!
