I have been noticing that some new members asking for help and options and advice. I saw a post this morning that a newbie was asking about a fishing rod. I would think he was asking because he did not no. This one brother replied LOL , now what do you think this young man thinks of the BOC now. Just remember folks we were new to this at one time. I think when Paul stated the BOC that was what he had in mind was to help every body that was interesting in catching catfish. So the next time you answer someone give it to them straight or just do not say a word let someone else reply. And there is no reason to bash any manufactures equipment just give a straight answer and then let them make there choice. Also I see some bashing our sponsors and that should never happen as they are the ones that help keep the BOC on here and no charge to us. So every time you give an answer think what you say.
