    Welcome to the best catfishing site in the world Tim.
    You can find anything you want to know about catfishing and whatever you heart desires in here. Maybe you can teach us something sometime.

    Good luck

    Welcome to the BOC BigTim, I am from the middle of the state and don't know much about fishing up close to you. The big rivers seem to be the home of the really big cat fish. The Rock rive up there is a river known for catfish along with several lakes. Good fishing.

    Welcome to the BOC. If it is a fishing area you are looking for then someone here on this site can tell you where to go. Remember, there is alot more information on here than just places to fish. Welcome aboard and Happy Fishing.
