    Hi,

    I just started catfishing this summer. Really got the bug after being introduced to big blues by my hunting buddies. This is one incredible resource for cat fishing info! Hope I can be a worthy contributor, but I have lots to learn!

    It is good to have you here. You can find all kinds of good information here. Tell your friends about it too. I can tell you this, reading about everyone's catches and stories can really get you pumped up to go fishing.

    Wow!

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I really appreciate your kindness.

    For those who have asked, I am from Will County (NE IL) and fish/hunt the nearby cooling lakes - Braidwood, Heidecke, and LaSalle. Also the Illinois river and Des Plaines river.

    I've gotten a some PM's, but can't respond until I get 10 posts under my belt. Guess I have to get busy!

    God Bless...
