My name is Cecil Shaw, otherwise known as "Cecil Lethal With Them Catfish" and/or “Mr. Slingnbaits” on YouTube. I've been fishing the State of Kansas my entire life, exploring every pond, lake, creek and river that crosses my path. When I was a kid my grandpa taught me how to fish and introduced me to catfishing. Ever since then I've been HOOKED! I created a YouTube channel and dedicated it to sharing my passion and adventures of catfishing. I really enjoy and love catfishing and hope to encourage more to get into the sport of catfishing! Whenever I'm not fishing then I love spending time with my family and friends. I love to challenge myself on doing more than what I’ve already experienced. Hopefully my videos and ideas will help spark the next great mind.
