    Hey my name is Matt. Im new to all of this to say the least. I grew up in Pittsylvania County fishing in mostly ponds for bass and occasionally for channel cats. I moved to Richmond about 2 years ago for school and continued to go home on the weekends to get my much needed fishing in. Recently I started to get interested in all of this catfishing hype. I grew up catching 8-12 pound channel cats, so to see most of your pics on here is a dream. I live on the west side of Richmond and work in Mechanicsville. Because I am a student I do not have a boat up here and i'm interested in getting in to the "big cat" world. Im interested in any help as far as where I can fish from the bank, pier, etc. in any nearby river or lake. Im open to any ideas or advice. Also if anyone ever needs a fishing partner then please let me know. Im trying to learn as much as I can....Thanks in advance.

    welcome to the BOC matthew. i live in pittsylvania county close to chatham. the fish bite is slow right now...except for the 102.5 lber just caught...pm me and maybe we can hook up sometime. i am still trying to figure them out and having a blast doing it. lots of helpful fishermen on this sight so just ask and roam through here regular and in no time you will be on the right track.
