    Welcome to the BOC Harley. If you want to catch catfish, then you 've come to the right spot. There is plenty of information here for you to use in order to get your first cat.

    Welcome Harley, by the time you're done reading this you will probably be starting on number Two Catfish! There is so much information, so many people willing and able to help, that first cat fish just gives up pronto! Glad to have you aboard.

    Welcome and the tidewaters are a good basic reel for the money and should last for years.

    welcome to the BOC, i have two of the tide water 30 series, one is a 30L which is a little smaller in the chassie (still holds 330 yrds of 20# test) and one is a 30lb, love em both but the LB seems to cast better, great reel if your not use to using bait casters. and they are tough as can be
