By BRENTFRAZEE CANADA, Kan. - Warren Kreutziger could use a few air fresheners in his fishing boat. Put simply: His boat stinks. Every time he goes fishing, he takes several five-gallon buckets full of foul-smelling catfish chum - fermented soybeans that have turned many a stomach. But that rotten concoction smells sweet to channel catfish. And to Kreutziger, that's all that matters. "You mix soybeans and water and leave it out in the heat for three or four days, and it will really...

By Michael Pearce, The Wichita Eagle, Kan. Jul. 27--It's the time of year we loathe. Gardens and crop fields wither in the heat. It's not safe to work outdoors. But it's a heck of a time to catch catfish. "Catfishing couldn't be any better right now," Warren Kreutziger said. "Most days we're limiting out." Jeff Rader and Mike Suitt are saying the same. All owe much of their success to buckets of fermented soybeans they've dumped in favored waters. Here are preferred tactics and...

By Michael Pearce, The Wichita Eagle, Kan. Jul. 13--Ranging from desolate stock ponds to sculpted sand pits winding between seven-figure homes, Kansas' 100,000-plus private waters offer some good fishing. But they could be giving us much more. "I doubt we get 25 percent of the potential out of our ponds," said Leonard Jirak, a Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks fisheries biologist.

By Bob Frye Rob Walters is not a native Pittsburgher, nor is he old enough to have known Pittsburgh during its industrial heyday, when the mills blackened the skies and turned the rivers orange. But, he's heard the stories. That's one of the reasons why he's still amazed at the number of fish anglers routinely pull from the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio. "To me, coming here from Delaware four years ago, it's kind of mind boggling the species of fish that live in these rivers," said...

By Lauren McSherry DEVORE - The catfish are jumping at Glen Helen Regional Park. On Thursday afternoon, a truck laden with 750 pounds of live channel catfish rumbled into the park to stock two ponds. It backed up to the shore of the park's largest lake, and Juan Clemente, an employee of Fish Producers Inc., jumped out, promptly hooking up a pipe to the truck's side.

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Like any farmer, catfish growers have a taste for higher yields. Now after three decades of research, a hybrid catfish developed at Auburn University may satisfy that appetite for profit. There are other hybrids in the ponds - strains of catfish crossed naturally - but Auburn's hybrid catfish is the first manually fertilized for commercial use, according to its developers.
