    anyone know a good fishing line 100lb + that isn't so pricy? Preferably one you have successfully landed multiple big fish on. I'm looking specifically at Poisedon Kast King 150lb braid. At $58 for 150lb x 1100 yards that's a great price. I have the 80lb but haven't hooked a fish to test it...

    Find it really difficult to focus on work when you have a fishing trip planned in the next 30 days??? Wish I could have flathead poles in the water while I am working!

    Does anyone have a list of legal cut baits for fishing in AZ? I know you can't use any species of Trout, Bass, Catfish, Northern pike, Walleye or yellow perch. What does this leave? Are dead goldfish legal? tilapia filets? anything else so I have back up bait? The AZ game and...

    Hey all I am heading to Patagonia with a few friends mid November. We have site 110. Has anyone ever fished from that site? I am targeting Flatheads only and hoping they are still biting. Any insight you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey all, When I fish for Flatheads I am lucky if I land 1 in an overnight trip. I am just curious who has had success with catching multiple Flatheads in one night? Will you share any tips, or the set up you used? Last time I went to lake pleasant I heard the clicker go off twice but it...

    Hello there, in a couple of weeks I will be at Lake Pleasant for the first time as my family has selected a new lake for our annual fishing trip. We have a boat and I'm just trying to get a little insight on some good spots and tackle for stripers and flatheads. I'm going to be there for 5 days...

    There are anglers out there that are on the hunt for trophy catfish in the arid desert, holding many unforgiving desert lakes. Here, you can share your live bait/ dough recipes, or share tips that make you a successful cat fisherman. Who on here, is king of the catz?¿
