      Haha! I kid, I kid! I understand the sacredness of "fishing spots" and the possibility of DM's.

      This guy is asking for a spot so he can go make a video sharing the spot with the world, so not sure why anyone would want to share.

      Well first it’s catfish so I don’t know why any one would care. If it’s like Mobridge any bay or back water a crawler and weight and catch as many of the rat bastards that you want. No limit down here I hope people stack them up so I don’t have to deal with them.

      Guessing you could catch a cat anywhere along the river with a bit of an eddy.

      The Pembina comment was in reference to Jiffy's running joke regarding good pheasant spots for internet scouters.

      Try the desert, especially along the stretch with all the trees in the water.

      How far do you want to drive? If you just want to stay I Bismarck I'd target the Heart river, or any backwater inlet. Buy some smelt, and use a treble hook.

      I've caught cats pretty much everywhere I've shore fished on the river without even targeting them. Seems like they are on the edges of the fast water along the deep channel with timber in the water being a plus.

      Fashion a Carolina rig using a no-roll sinker. Don't skip the bead as the swivel can eventually stick in the lead. Inject a crawler with air and increasingly fish shallower as the light fades. Don't be surprised at the variety of species. If you make it up to the 'race NEVER throw this rig beyond 25yds or it's snagged and gone.

      The above tip was given to me by an individual on a now defunct site. It provided me with my first fish in the 'race and gave me confidence to experiment. The Tailrace from shore can totally break your spirit. Thanks Individual!!

      Catfishing in the chutes is insane late summer. Catch them all day from the boat. Can catch them pretty much dragging anything. Usually my go to for good action when the lake is too windy.

      The tailrace can indeed be a heartbreaker. Feast or famine oftentimes.

      Catfish?

      Why?
