Hello all... I realize I'm (technically) not a new member. Been registered since 2005. But I have been basically, well... missing from BOC. Sorry for the absence everyone. Good to be back here though. BOC is still the best. My name is Ken, I live in SE Ohio... Washington Court House, to be exact. Am originally from NE Ohio.. Findlay. Have been fishing near WCH area, (Deer Creek, Rocky Fork...etc), but haven't had too much luck. A few fish, here and there, but not the kinda of fish I been reading about on this site. I keep catching the babies.:embarassed: Fishing around here is different than I was used to in Findlay, so I've got some learning to do. BOC looks like a fantastic place to get that education. Differences I've seen. There are definately bigger fish down here. :big_smile: (not complaining, mind ya) (with the bigger fish) The Equipment grew. Rods 10-12 feet, etc. (have traded up some of my stuff, but still have more to get I think) Up north we would fish bottom for Catfish. Down here, everyone seems to fish with a huge bobber. Ok, ok... I'm not totally new to fishing. I've been pulling up Perch, Catfish, carp, Bluegill, Bass, and a few stray turtles since I was able to hold a fishing pole. But at my now crisp age of 45, I've discovered I got some more things to learn. But HEY!!!...What better subject to study? :big_smile: :big_smile: :big_smile: :big_smile: By the way, been working on getting my wife to visit BOC. She's loves fishing as much as I do..(she would say even more) (Oh.. yeah, I know I need to update my Photo...was my biggest catfish, when I was, um... younger..) Anyway, am really looking forward to pulling in a big Cat. The one in my avatar way around 12 pound I think.
