Text me when you get there.  Hopefully I'll have a little service if we are on the boat, or if at camp, I should have plenty of service...unlike last year.  :bash:

I think I am going to head out early.  I should be able to plan on being there when you get there.  We can set up camp and then go fish.

I'm going to try to be there somewhat early Friday, I've never ran the river there though, what's the channel like going into the palouse? Hopefully I can hook up and follow someone once, I don't need much water though, so it might be a non issue.

I'm ready to get there!
Will be arriving around noon on Friday.
Will put the boat in the water at a slip and then go set up camp.
After camp is set up will then head out in the boat and run the flats balls to the wall wide open making a new trail on the GPS, for some reason I lost the last track I "saved" on my GPS.

Don't overlook good old fashioned nightcrawlers, fished a little higher in the water column.  ;)

im pretty green when it comes to fishing catfish, my arsenal consists of a chicken liver and a weight in the past.

 from what I looks like, a 1/2oz or better weight, with a 4/0 hook and some fresh cut bait is the ticket?

what else should I be arming myself with?

I don't know the legality of this but we used to catch a local forage fish...perch....bluegill....take a strip of meat off the side and use a small float AFTER the hook to suspend the bait off the bottom.  Online I'm sure you can find an illustration but my theory was it made the bait "swim" when fished in any type if water flow. Strikes were always solid compared to a gentle pull while fishing directly on bottom.

Sounds like we will be there before noon   :tup:

Rashell wants to leave Thursday night  crash at a rest area along the way and head over first thing in the morning.

But don't think I will be heading right out to fish,  I have no idea what I'm doing.  Will probably wait till Justin get there...... lol
