    Before joining this site, I would go catfishing a lot. I didn't know a lot about it, but enough to catch fish regularly. The only time I caught a fish over 5lbs was at one of "those" lakes. I just couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong.
    Ever since joining this site, my fishing has gone to new levels. I still haven't hooked anything huge, but My average fish is much bigger. With the knowledge I've gained from this site, I was able to catch my first flathead. 13lbs is now my largest. I've also caught a channel cat over 10lbs.
    The way I see it, It's only a matter of time before I hook into a trophy flathead or channel, and it's all because of the members on this site.
    Thank you all for your shared knowledge, kindness, and will to help.

    Josh, you are welcome, glad my wisdom has helped. I just with more would come clean and thank me. LMAO

    In all seriousness, the BOC has helped me in many ways as well. Learned so much in the last 3 years. Caught my first Shovelhead and Bluecat because of fishing with members of the BOC. Great post.

    I agree, the things I've learned on this site should put me on some big catfish, now if I can just get myself away from this puter long enough to go fishing. LOL

    This site is like a hang out of catfish addicts and a library full of experts all rolled into one place. Doesn't matter who you are, where you come from, how old or young you are, fat, thin, hairy, bald, male, female or undecided :roll_eyes: everyone's input is valued. I know I've learned a ton of stuff here. Things like using a cast net for bait gathering, catching skipjack herring with crappie jigs, curing livers, and so on. If you interested in a particular type of method, just ask and someone usually several someone's will have the right answer for you. Examples would be drift fishing lakes, drift fishing rivers, bank fishing locations, tools, and mehtods, river fishing or lake fishing. You can even fix you boat or outboard. Computer problems, there is help for that too. Almost anything from basics to experts, outboards to inboards, cleaning what you catch to cooking your catch. Yeph, this site has it all and we can all just hang around and talk about one of our passions in life. ISN'T THE BOC A GREAT PLACE.
