After learning about catfish biology, regulations, and catfish fishing techniques, participants will spend Saturday evening on the Mississippi River setting trot lines and bank poles. These lines will be checked early Sunday morning, followed by fish cleaning demonstrations. Each boat will have an experienced operator and guide. Camping and pole and line fishing will be available Saturday evening for those interested. Saturday evening dinner will be provided. This event is offered free of charge and is open to all ages, but is usually attended by family groups. Pre-registration is required. Note that this is a two-day event and participants are required to attend both days.
