    Our own, EricM has been named number 6 in the top ten male freshwater anglers based on records earned between Oct 31, 2006 and Oct 31, 2007! This is from the pages of the IGFA 2008 World Record Game Fishes book . I have had the pleasure of fishing with this man and can truthfully say I have never met a more colorful person in my life. He is a great fisherman and a joy to be around.
    A thumbs up to yea EricM

    Thanks Willard! It was truly a shock to open the book, page through, and see that! It was for the records that I set for blue catfish on 130 pound line last year. I am proud to say that this last year on the BOC has given me the opportunity to learn and share what I know with a great bunch of people! Thanks so much everyone!
