    I have been away for awhile and havn't posted anything on this new format so thought I would get started by saying hello to all the brothers.
    Catfishing in my area of Montana is pretty slim and must travel about 150 miles (Billings and eastward on the Yellowstone) to find catfish (channels) but I make a couple trips a year there and am hoping to hit the Snake River down in Idaho this summer for some smallmouth bass and catfish. If any Idaho brothers could offer some advice on where to go on the Snake, I'm all ears.
    I love this site. Take care

    Thanks for the replys and it's good to be back. Yep, we've had more snow than normal this year but the more the better as this is our summer supply of water when it melts. Without lots of snow, we are in a drought situation. Most of Montana is classified as high desert so it's pretty arid.
    Looking forward to getting the boat back out, but that's about three months away. Cabin fever is tough. Had plans to go ice fishing this winter but the ice got soft before I could get out there, so that's out.
    Everybody take care and stay safe.

    You get back to ohio look me up I'll put you on a flathead 25lbs or better.

    Hey guys, again, thanks for all the welcome backs.

    beaneye46: I live in Bozeman and have for the last 23 years. It's a great little town but growing like crazy. Yeah, we got lots of elk but it's a young man's game unless you have a horse. I'm 63 so getting a little old for hauling out an elk. I do harrass'em a little with my bow sometimes.

    S Man: Thanks for the invite to fish with ya. Although I was born in KY, I was raised in SW Ohio, hence " mtbuckeye". Lived there for about 15 years. I get back that way every once in awhile.
    Everybody be careful out there and have fun.
