    Hello everyone I am new to the forums here and just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Steve and I live in Winfield. I got a boat earlier this year but the river has been up so much that I have not gotten out on it yet. I have been going to Mark Twain a lot lately but not much luck there. Anyway, I just wanted to say hello to everyone here and looking forward to learning from you guys on your tips.
    I met and went fishing with catmankev from Illinois and caught my biggest cat ever. 12 lbs and 2 oz. I had a blast.:big_smile:. Thanks again catmankev for teaching me some skills.

    Welcome to the BOC. I have had the same problem with the river this year. However, when it gets back down there are some big cats to catch around Winfield.

    Welcome to the BOC from a neighbor up stream from you. Like you be glad when the ole Miss decides to go down and stay down .Makes for some rough fishing and no camping at all.
    Congrats on your PB Blue. You'll most likely beat that before the summer is over. Just listen to the guys who fish for them and you'll learn a lot.Just be careful out there on that crazy ole river.
    Like they said check out the BOC Library and go check out the Missouri Forum on here. Some interesting things there.

    You all seem like a nice bunch of people here. I am looking forward to learning more. Tell you of some fish I have caught? Not much until catmankev. Honestly nothing to speak of. Then fishing with catmankev was the most incredible fishing experience of my life. Cats biting and it was great. Got sunburned but, it was soooo worth it!
    Mike teaching you how to tie a line to your toe sounds right! I think we almost had him asleep when we were fishing! Thanks again :big_smile:
