    hey im Steven from rock hill South Carolina. I have been catfishing since i was a kid even though im only 18.. I do have a boat its a 1648 G3 with a 30 horse johnson that runs...some of the time.i fish both rivers and lakes so i cant have it rigged for just one kind of fishing I came across this forum a while back but never posted and just figure i would drop a line. this is a great site and i have spent many nights going through the post. i hope to be fishing the catawba catfish clubs september tourny so if you all have any tips ill take all i can get. :wink:

    One of the other reasons i am posting is i am looking to put a few more rod holders on here but cant deside where to put the next to i dont know if i should put them up front or in the back? here are some pictures you all tell me what you think.:0a17:

    First of all welcome to the BOC,glad you joined up and posted,looks like you have plenty of potential with your boat,Placement of rod holders and such is really gonna depend on you and your type of fishing.If you are gonna be mostly anchored I would concentrate more on the back of the boat and a few on the sides,with that set up you would be ready also for power drifting with trolling motor when there is no wind.If you are gonna solely drift with the wind and drift socks you may need to concentrate more on the side.I would go for about 4 across the back and 4 on each side and then you will have all areas covered.
    As for the Catawba Tourney,hope you can make it down and be sure to introduce yourself to everyone.many BOC guys fish them.Also remember Tourney talk is limited in the State Forums so be sure to check us out and keep updated in the "Catfish Tournament " section on our page.Also make sure you check out the Carolina Catfish Club since you are in Rock Hill/Charlotte area.:big_smile:

    Welcome to BOC this site has been a blessing to me. The men and women on here have helped me tremendously. I hope you find this site as helpful as I have. What part of the Catawba are you fishing?

    I would agree with Marty on the rod holder set up. See you already have some along the side need 2 or 3 more on the back. Check the library and look at some of the ideas for bars across the back to mount holders.
