Hello Everybody, it my pleasure to join this awesome forum today.
I had fish license 3years ago, I didn't know any good spot. It expired without single fish. Now i got another one.

I live in Fresno/Missouri city Texas. Please can anyone help me with a good spot for a catfish? **Catch and take home** I don't like wasting my time on catch and release.

Please I would appreciate your help. I need some good spot for catfish. anywhere close to houston.

I'm not sure about the limit on catfish. I love catfish and i can eat it for years.

Please show me where to catch big catfish to take home. Unlimited will be awesome. I will buy you a beer if your spot is a catch. I can send the beer money to ur paypal.

Fish near the dam in any major lake, there are catfish the size of Volkswagens. Divers have seen them, and refused to ever go back. You must fish at night, and use chicken liver, or shrimp. Don't forget if one stings you, either spit tobacco on it, or [censored] on it...... good luck

I used to live on lake Houston... I had great success catching blue cat there. I tried to find shallow water in the summer.

Cats are all about edges and ledges
Summer time = deep
They ride the ridges close to drop offs
Seldom do anything of size venture into shallow water over 80*F
AND!! . . . . .they are not dragging the belly on the bottom,they are 3 feet up or better

Respectfully,
If your bank anchored all advice will be highly subjective

On the Tennessee, I let the weight hit the bottom, then give it two cranks up. Boom!
