    welcome aboard,
    never heard of any tournaments, but several get togethers and small gatherings. what part of az are you from? we are scattered all over the state so you have to be near someone.
    usually a fair size gathering at blyth, ca on the river every yr.

    This thread will be removed, I have tried several times to start a discussion regarding tournys but if they are not BOC sponsored tournaments or part of the tournament partners, the MODS will remove the thread..

    * But, there are tournaments quite often at Bartlet and Roosevelt...
    * They are not broadcast and information about them are pretty much shared by word of mouth.

    ~ I have never tried one, but I was thinking about doing one next year..

    * But c'mon~ Why do you need a catfish tournament??? The whole reason I like cat fishing is because it is relaxing and therapeutic.. As soon as you put money into the equation, you now have to deal with stress, cheaters, physical stress on the fish, and more cost, just to sit and stare at your poles...

    * Just bring plenty of beer and remember the real reason you are there, to catch a buzz and point and laugh at all the rediculaus bass fishermen "runnin and gunnin" for stress and noise polution...

    ~ If you want to meet up with some real catmen and learn and share experiences.. Come out to a BOC gathering...

    That is what Catfishing is all about. Enough running around stressing out during the week. I just like to relax, have fun, get buzzed and catch fish. Great post dude. :cool2:

    I believe groups just getting together discussing their evening fishing plan and regrouping in the morning to share their [fishing tales] is what it is all about. We are all crazy about catfishing and and can't get it out of our system. I laugh to myself when i meet people and they say they don't understand catfishing. Too bad for them!
