The Missouri River has lately become a destination for trophy catfish. All up and down the Big Muddy, anglers are pulling huge fish from the turbid waters. This presentation was by someone who makes it possible for other people to land monster cats.

John “Captain Catfish” Trager runs a fishing guide service on the Kansas and Missouri Rivers focused giving people to opportunity to fish the Big Muddy’s big catfish. We can’t guarantee all of John’s stories will be 100% true, but that’s never the point anyway!
