    Having been a member for several years, I can tell you that the friends you make here will last a life time. It is hard to become Friends when you don't know where someone is from and who they are.

    It is always nice to see where other members are from and their name. Kind of makes it less formal.

    GUYS, NEWBIES..... LURKERS....

    Get involved here. This place is a riot. And dont be afraid to tell the world who and where you are!!!

    When the chance arises opens in the new year, Support this site financially too. I didnt do it last year but this next year I will pay for myself and another member too.

    All this stuff you see on this site was created and thought up by olks like yourself. Fols who fish and have families and have their entire existence tied by a small fascination for catfish, to this site you're looking at. That right there is impressive. That says a lot. All that is being asked of from you here and now is a few small details about you- the individual. Where you live, whats your name ad what do you look like holding a fish, or choking a poodle, or cheek to cheek with your sweety. Its a small request.

    You will enjoy this place but you will only get from it what youre wqilling to put into it. In my case I get aggrivated daily but thats what I bring with me to share, so its all good, right? LOL

    Have fun here and enjoy the brotherhood for all it is.

    Sal

    names and locations open up the way to lifelong friendships and fishing partners. It helps when you know who is near you that fishes the same waters

    Hey all you lurkers and newbies. Dont be afraid. Sign up and start posting. Also get your Picture ,state and city up for us all. It dont hurt and you wont get spammed.

    I joined 5 years ago and havent regretted a minute of it. This is the greatest place on the net. I have made some of the best friends here . The best part is they all like to fish so it is easy to get some to go fishing with you.

    Everyone is helpful beyond imagine. So hurry up and dont miss the boat.

    Like all have said already, this is a great site to be a member of. I have been a memeber only for a few months but already have made some friends and even ran into a memeber at where I fish(canepole). Their is alot to learn and share about a pastime that can be handed down to your children and shared with friends and neighbors. What could possibly be better than going fishing with family and friends. I realy need to get a picture up but don't know how to go about it, maybe someone can email with some help. Become a memeber now so you don't miss out on a good time.

    Excellent idea, when you see the posters name and City it makes the posts seem more personal.


    Merry Christmas to all and yours,

    It's not just a guy thing! All you women that hide in the bushes, come on in and join! You might just learn something you didn't know, once in a while. Just kidding. We have a lot of informative people and a lot of fun here.
    Sign up and see what you are missing! Contests, tournaments, and a High Intensity area where you have to opt in or out and can have adult conversations and fun. :)
