    Jake Welcome to the BOC, from So. Illinois. Glad to see another Illinois member. What part of Illinois are you from and what species of catfish do you chase? Be sure and check out information on Gatherings for Illinois. Ref; Rend Lake Gathering, Illinois Catstock, etc.:0a25::0a25::0a22:

    Thanks Paul. I believe the Cattmatt gathering on the rock river will be a neat gathering. With three gathering in Illinois, we cover the state real good. Something for everyone. I hope these gathering continue to grow and grow.

    I agree...That was my intention of having another gathering in Illinois...This just gives a chance to have members get together from all over the state...with having more than one it also helps with peoples schedules a little better...Also they are kind of spread out through out the state a little to help meet everyone's needs as far as distance goes...I personally think it is awesome...

    I would like to make it to each one of the events and meet as many BOC members as possible...Many Thanks goes out to all of the members who have helped to make each one of these gatherings a huge success in Illinois...

    A Special Thanks goes out to BearCat and all the members of the Catstock Gathering for getting them started in this Wonderful fishing state of Illinois...I tip my hat to ya and look forward to meeting you all....

    Welcome Jake


    I fish mostly baldwin, carlyle and rend lake. I haven't explored much of carlyle, as I have fished pretty much my little spots that I normally catch my cats in. Haven't really had much other reason to try elsewhere! haha
