    Mickey....your post just answered a question for me. I have ask 2 times what the member number is for. The numbers were all over the place mostly big numbers but mine is a low number, I thought I wasn't doing something right. LOL. It is just a way to see how many members we have without counting.

    16000.....thats a bunch..... most forums will never see numbers like this.

    You know what I really have mixed feelings about the grouth of catfishing.Perhaps Im just being selfish, but it seems to me the more catfisher ppl the less fish for me.

    when I started to skydive, we could go to the dropzone and get five or six jumps a day.A year or two later it was hard to get on a load,and you could just get two or three jumps aday.

    I guess if they are going to fish, it makes sence thry learn to do it right and about CPR. and to share there knowledge.I welcome all new members. smokey

    I think it is awesome that we are growing in numbers...Most of these folks are fishing anyway and have been fishing...But it is a great opportunity for us to share our knowledge with others as far as conservation is concerned...

    We have a great knowledge base of fishing here at the BOC...Now we just need to embrace our wonderful world of catfishing and grow in conservation and helping them fish to reach the potential in Growth and numbers...

    We all can do this by sharing our knowledge with others and teaching our system of CPR and respect of fishing with our new comers...

    I can tell you from my experiance,I have come a long way because of the BOC in this...I have learned to Catch some big fish and also what it means to CPR fish...

    We have a good thing going here at the BOC let us keep those #'s moving forward and take over the world one Catfish at a Time...

    Our fishing can only get better with the BOC out in the Front of others...
    many Thanks go out to our Ole' timers with in the BOC for sharing and helping to make this organization grow...

    It is the JW's,the DH1's,The Mickey's,and many more of you to list that have made this place so wonderful...Keep it up men and women of the BOC

    You are all my extended family and I Thank You...:smile2:

    For those concerned about the growth of our membership, have no fear, there is an old saying that 10% of fishermen catch 90% of the fish. So, when you look and see that we have 16,000 members, your fishing competition is only 1,600 fishermen/women in the USA. Spread that number out across the different states and you only have about 32 competitors in your state. Now do you feel better?:roll_eyes: I know I do!

    It just goes to show you that the BOC is the biggest and the best catfishing website in the world.
