    I've been on Catfish1.com for a little while now, I've just never said Hi before. I guess I could say I've been busy, mostly I've just put it off.
    Hi, everyone... Sorry for long of a wait.
    I'm from Hardy, Franklin County area.
    I love my fishin' too. I hit Smith Mountain Lake a lot for my catfishing and the James River.
    I went last night and like to froze, but I bagged a good Flathead.
    Well, I hope to hear from one or two of you.
    Have a good one...
    See ya later...

    Kevin,
    Welcome to the BOC. You are a brave man to have fished last night. It was a warm 24 degrees at my place when I got up around 7:30 am. That is just a little cooler than I like my fish sticks.
    Congrats on the big flathead.

    A buddy of mine has been telling me that for a while now. He goes down there, but he said in the right months that it lives up to it's name. I guess this time of year a body needs not worry about it.
    Thing is I don't have a boat ( I really enjoy fishing from the bank... wierd right ) and I don't know anything about the area. Can you help me out on a good spot to go, one that isn't fished out, to many people and all that jazz? I like being left alone especially if I go alone.
    Thanks again Brother...
