    I am new to the forum and the sport. I have been reading threads for a couple of days and am amazed at the amount of information that is on here. I think I got hooked after I whent out on my third time and caught one fish all night, but it hit like a tuna and took the rod tip to the water, Im still not sure if my drag will ever be right again on that reel. I just wanted to introduce myself, I live in Imperial MO and I will be spending my free time up near the Alton Lock. Oh the fish wasn't a giant it was a 30lber that I did release, the one in my avatar. But I can see there are some nice ones left thanks to the CPR that everyone seems to practice on here. I look forward to getting to know everyone and if you see me out on the water screwing up just yell I can take it. Tight lines!

    Glad to have you on board Ryan. Reps for releasing that fish. Thanks for being a great steward of the resource. Quite a few of us from Jefferson County on here you will undoubtedly get to know. :wink: Lets see, you'll meet Kutter (from Arnold) if its above 85 degrees out, Vince (Flamm City) If He aint sittin in my boat when I run out of gas, Gary (Festus) he has the black boat with the white stripe down the middle of it :smile2:, and of course me, from DeSoto.

    Welcome to the BOC and keep releasing those fish!!!!
