    I personally am happy to be a part of the BOC because it is one big family. There is not a night goes bye that I do not learn something from the brothers and sisters on this site and not all lessons are about fishing. I feel as at home here as I do anywhere I have ever been. Thanks for letting me be a part of it.

    The BOC places the world of like minded people at your fingertips. While we may never eyeball each other, we are able to develop bonds and friendships that will withstand the tests of time. We are able to share the highs and lows of life without shame and know that someone out there understands and feels our joys and pains. In short, "We are Family". Stay safe and Happy Holidays!!!:wink:

    I was looking for a web site that I could feel comfortable speaking with other guys,,AND GALS,, that shared the same enjoyable hobbies as myself. and making friends along the way,,to share the fun sport of fishing and hunting. And I found that at the boc.
    thanks to all the members ,,for all that I've allready learned in my short term as a member.

    THE BOC ROCKS :cool2::cool2::cool2: !!!!!!!

    nodoubt the networking and the friends u make. i like the fact that if i got the notion to head to another state that 99.9% of the time you can hook up with a member from whatever area share the passion. put you on the fish, deer , duck, whatever, you can find someone with the knowledge and commitment to the outdoors. put a guy from up north intouch with some friends who run a charter service on the coast. member just hollard and i responded, that quick. now hes on his way to an awesome time billfishing this summer.

    I'm happy because I've learned a lot of stuff being in here from fishing to people giving me a lot of pointers about life in general :big_smile: I love this site.. I've met some great people on this site, and have fished with some off of here too, and they've all been so nice and helping.

    This is like another family to me :big_smile:

    This seems like the perfect thread for my 1000th post. Thank you Mickey, thank you for bringing such good news to our attention.

    It's been said by others, but the BOC is my virtual fishing hole. Whenever I want to think about fishing and can't go myself, all I have to do is log on and see that there are hundreds of posts waiting for my browsing. I can look at pictures of fish that other brothers and sisters have caught and see there are still lots bigger fish for me to catch. I can read through the adventures and mishaps from fellow catfishermen and know that I'm not the only one that does stupid things from time to time.

    The BOC is not only a informative and educational, it's also entertaining. Where else can you find such a diverse group of people. I think the diversity of the membership is one of the great things. Where else are you going to have lots of buddies to back up what you think is right. And If you're wrong, there are lots of other people that will try to sway your mind and convince you otherwise. I've seen fisherman change their views about things that they have done for years. It creates the perfect balance for discussions.

    I enjoy my time spent on the BOC. Like a good radio station, at home, work, and in the car. If i'm having a bad day, I can always log on and be in a much better mood within a few minutes. Although I've never met anyone, in person, I feel that I have made many friends on here.

    Thank you BOC Members, thank you for helping make this such a great site. My world is a much brighter because of the BOC.
