Fishing Guide Services Lead to Lots of Fish and Lots of Fun

As someone who has fished quite a few Kansas lakes for bass, crappie, walleye and wiper, but never catfish, I took interest in recent stories of monster catfish being caught around the state. Motivated by dreams of reeling in a fish half my size, I decided it was time to try it out.

I knew a couple of things about fishing for big cats: 1) I'd need stink bait and 2) I'd need a bigger fishing pole. Instead of buying a new pole, 100-lb test line and risking life and limb with my limited knowledge, I called up R.R. "CatDaddy" Shumway, a local catfish guide based in Topeka.

Passing on the Crappie Tradition

One of the best times of the year for fishing in Kansas is in the spring, right in the middle of the crappie spawning season. As the weather starts warming up and the fields start to turn green, the crappie start moving closer to shore making fishing on Kansas lakes a dream come true.
