    Joined last night ......been browsing around and all looks good fellas .....I'm glad I joined.

    I'm Bob in Greenville Illinois, 44 years young, grew up fishing Cats at the Illinois river then striper at Smith Mountain Lake VA. Got my first boat at 12 and just about had one every since. From a small jon to a 26ft pontoon and back around to a wet bike with bass boats thrown about like wedding rice. Only one boat now, 16ft charger with a 150 XR2 black max. Still trying to figure away to install my 15 horse kicker for areas such as Coffeen. Love the water and love to fish.

    Thanks all for the site!

    Welcome to the BOC Bob. If ya haven't done so yet check out the member library. There is so much information in there you will be in there for days deciphering it all.

    If ya like trying out new recipes with your catch and side orders check out the BOC Diner. There are so many mouth watering recipes in there that you'll end up needing a bigger life vest. :eek:oooh::smile2:

    Good Luck and tight lines.

    Welcome Bob, Catinaldtime and I fish Coffeen frequently. I have a 17.5ft Ranger that I push around with a 4 horse. It was all I had that would sit next to the 150 hp Merc. It gets the job done. Good luck and enjoy the site. There is so much information here. Also a lot of fun to be had with the BOC membership.

    I love coffeen .....however I made the mistake of selling the jon this spring. I got three times what I paid for it but I cut Coffeen right out of my horse power range in the transaction ........That's why I'm fighting my kicker install ......the bass boat just wasn't made for one.
