    Got that one and many others from the upper Kan River between Marmet and Kanawha Falls.

    Caught around a dozen or more last year in the 30-40 lb range.This year has started slow for me with only 1 28 lb and a few small 3 and 4 lbers.

    WOW what a catch you have their in you avatar. I pulled out a 18 lber just last weekend, in my wifes new honeyspot. I hate the spot but she loves it, so I had to go back to it. But after dragging my hog out of the water i was very happy! Broke my rod in process of getting it out of the water trying to lift into the boat, but did boat it and scale it! What a catch!

    It was probably where it has to have a pic of you in it. Its all good though, I think we've all been through that at least once!:wink::big_smile:



    9. Avatar and Profile Pictures, Signature Rules

    The Avatar picture option was created to allow members to visually identify who they are talking to and create an atmosphere of friendship by sharing your personal image, "Your face". This option does create a more favorable environment for all and is strictly voluntary to participate in.

    The Avatar picture option will only contain a relatively recent recognizable photo of yourself and will not be abused by placing advertisements, pictures of dogs, cats, cartoons, or other images or other forms of animated media.

    The Profile picture can be used to display another photo that you like as long as the picture is in good taste and does not contain advertisements.

    The signature section of your profile may contain no more than 4 lines. Signatures which are too long, do not conform with the other rules regarding signatures, or which interfere with the display or readability of messages will be edited or removed.

    Hi John! Welcome to the Brotherhood of Catfishermen family. We're glad to have you! Sending out an invite for your wife to join as well. We have quite a few active female participants here at catfish1.com and even a specific sisterhood forum (although that's frequented by the brothers just as much :smile2:). As long as she has a different email addy from yours, there should be no problem getting her signed up. Again, welcome, and enjoy yourself.

    :smile2:.....No way your mug could be worse than mine.:tounge_out:
    Thats why I had to put up the pic with the Young Ol' lady in it. Makes it purtier and easier on my eyes.....:wink::big_smile:

    Just put up a pic with the cute little one and you. That way the attention will be diverted from you.....:wink::tounge_out::big_smile:

    No problem at all to help out. I'm glad I could be of assistance. You'll find out that there are a bunch of great people that would be glad to help however they can(including me...LOL!) All you gotta do is ask!:cool2::big_smile:
