    Hi All

    This is my first post, hope to get the hang of it soon. I'm a retired Submarine sailor 22yrs and have just moved to Missouri from Colorado were all I did was Flyfish for trout. Now I'm pursuing Catfishing, quite a transition, but from the time I found this forum I've learned a lot and hope to catch up with you guys with yor help.

    Ain't it nice Jake. They are under the water and now you ain't. Always had a good impression of anybody who could get in a boat that ran underwater. The two times I almost drowned I thought I saw your boat when I went under the second time in each case.

    Enjoy it here. Don't let anybody scare ya, and don't believe everything ya hear. This place is like tea after church. You know church goers, they can put up a good impression anytime.

    What's wrong with trout? Catfishin' is fun and exciting, but trouting is class.

    Good luck, John.

    Well welcome aboard the SS Catter brother!!!! :smile2::smile2::smile2:

    I was born and raised in Montana and like you, the only fishing I did was flyfishing. Then in 2000, I moved here to the state of Missouri and met a guy at the gym who asked me if I liked to fish. Of course I said yes and well, 8 years later here I am with sooooooooooo much catfishing gear, a 20 foot SeaArk boat and not a day goes by that I'm thinking of catfishing or this damn website!!! :eek:oooh::eek:oooh:

    Just Kidding, this website is absolutely fantastic! I don't know where you are located within the state, but Missouri has alot of BOC members that are GREAT people. I have had the pleasure to meet alot of them over here in the St Louis area and am looking forward to meeting many many more. After all, this is like a support group for people with illnesses, only our illness is being addicted to catfishing! :wink:

    Cuz, AKA John, has put together a wonderful new catfishing club called Gateway Catfishing Club. The clubs first meeting is January 26th '08. Check out the Gateway Cats section under Partners in Catfishing

    Once again welcome to the BOC!!

    You will learn more here than you can imagine. I especially like the "retired" part in your profile. Retired from working - more time for fishing.

    Welcome to the BOC from Ohio. I have folks over in Bunker MO, bought my boat at Cooks outside of St Looey and am an avid Cards Fan. So I guess you could say I got ties! lol!

    Watch out for Cuz, cause he get's high for a living, and if you need legal help Marty KNOWS the MO. laws inside, out and upside down!

    There's a guy named Tom who lives with his wife on Truman Lake that are just super people.... them chihuahua pups grown yet? The missus is an Excellent Crappie fisherperson.

    Then there is that Gary Felkner guy from KC that drove a LONG way to fish with us Ohio boys when we visited.

    All in all you are surrounded by a pretty good bunch of guys.
