    The BOC is the ultimate resource for Catfishermen. It's a place where like minded people congregate. It's a place where great stories are told and the fish are always biting.

    We are doing extremely well for the winter time-frame. Last year we would get on average of 1-2 new member applications daily during this time frame. This year we are blowing it out of the water.

    We recently made contact with all members who had 0 post counts. It broke down roughly into the below.

    50% e-mailed back and said they just read, enjoy the group, etc etc.

    25% said they were good, just busy with life at the moment, etc.

    25% asked for help with their account.

    A big slap on the back for TOP. He answered hundreds of e-mails and spent tons of time on the telephone with new members getting them access on the BOC.

    Top was receiving and placing direct calls to these members hand walking them through the issues.

    Great job all!

BOC is growing in leaps and bounds thanks to the great staff we have and all the great members who are willing to help out even strangers.That don't happen much nowdays. We have something to really be proud of.
    A speical thank you to Tops for all he does for all the new members.

    As stated in another post. "Remember the 2009 Stars Program". It helps to keep this great site up and running and gives you the opportunity to win some great sponsors gifts. Also consider going and taking part in some of the many gatherings offered each year in a state near you. Its is a choice you will cherish and want forget.

    Yes sir, I agree with above comments, i have been a member for less than a year, have learned a bunch, enjoyed the stories and openness of members to help one another. With catfish1 you have a knowledgeable scout[guide] on your side before you go fishing anywhere in the United States, we have a couple of members in Canada also, i believe. It could be sometimes happiest place on earth, when it is too darn cold to be on the water. I saw 25,000 coming up a while B:big_smile:ack.

    Here is a good one;


    Paul,

    Thanks for the Email if you could reset the password and let me know the new one that would be great. I havnt been on the site in awhile due to the fact that it always seems that I am always deployed and Internet access has been a pain but now I am online again. Thank you very much for the email! This is the only web site that I have ever received an email from showing concern and offering assistance it really shows that you care. I am looking forward to getting back to Fort Campbell and LBL and catching some monster cats. I wish you and your family a happy holiday season and greeting from Afghanistan.

    Take care and be safe,
