    Welcome to the boc.

    In the tournements just do what you always do. On any given night some people will find the fish and some won't. That's just how it is. At the weigh in there's always a few guys saying it was a tough one. The bite was terrible. Then there's a few guys that tore em up. Its a lot of fun. I have gotten to know a good many of these wylie guys, and there good at catchin fish. But there all real good folks and they share advice. I've learned a ton fishing tournements.

    You'll probably be hooked after the first one.

    Jason, I have done a couple of articles on Tournament Fishing and you can read all about it at: http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=74525

    Also, welcome to the BOC, if he can not find what you want on the BOC, it can not be found in other places.

    Welcome. Another great place to find info on lakes around the Charlotte area and get advicce on many others is the Carolina Catfish Club. We have a meeting coming up in March, I believe its the 9th. A few of the members including myself , 1bluedevil, and Wyliecat will be fishing the Wylie events. Look forward to meeting you there
