    Ed, welcome to the BOC. Glad to have you on board. Gonna be pretty difficult to get anyone to leak some info your way with the tournament coming up in New Madrid. I'll be fishing down there a couple of days prior, and the tournament itself. I'll be glad to help out a little after that weekend. :big_smile:

    Well, I've been known to do a little fishing here and there in New Madrid, LOL.

    There's lots of good water down here. Whatever kind of areas you like to fish, you can probably find it down here. Except for dams, that is. LOL

    Cuz, let me know when you are coming down. Maybe we can get together while you're around.

    It's a shame there's such a shortage of tourney's around here. Nothing in Cape or Caruthersville this year!

    Sent you a PM Shane. Yeah, the only decent size tourney is this one coming up. Better keep a sharp lookout over your shoulder Shane. The big daddy SeaArk just might be within Binocular distance of the Preacher. :big_smile: I'm really hoping we can meet up while i'm there. I'm planning on being there for three days. It would be an honor to buy the Preacher a nice breakfast, in exchange for a HOT HOLE that is. :eek:oooh: I'll get in touch with you a few days prior.

    Well i plan on going down and seeing the weigh in for the tournament but will not be fishing in it. Since i don't have a boat down here I am restricted to what i can reach from the bank. I have been fishing at St. John's Bayou alot since it is on my way home from work but it seems to not have to much for pan sized catfish just a bunch of little ones.
