I was in the process of writing my fourth book last fall and the last research trip was to the Red River of The North in North Dakota. This river has a reputation for producing the biggest channel catfish in the country.
My co-author and fishing partner Mac Byrum landed his personal best channel at 20.5 pounds and I boated my personal best Channel at 21.8 pounds.
Got nearly 400 pounds of channels in two days. Released them all. My web site is www.jakestakeonfishing.com
