    I live out in Greenville. About 40 minutes east on I-30. Weare having a small get together next weekend at Lake Tawakoni. You should come out and meet up with us and do some fishing. You can look inthe BOC member gatherings on the main page and get some details. If you are interested,pm me.

    You should come hit the banks. The park we go to is a great place to bankfish. And,we don't all have boats.

    Wind Point Park is where we go. Right now,I have a small jon boat,but it needs some work before it sees water. I'm getting a new boat in the next couple months,just gotta find the right one. So,I will be bankfishing that weekend.
