    I am just thinking out loud here. Maybe others would have some ideas along this line and if the bosses see fit maybe we could have a section where folks could post their wiliness to trade fishing trips.
    When a brother or sister is going to travel they could check the board to see if anyone in the desired area wants to take out someone fishing for a trade of a new reel or 100 pounds of bait or for a return trip.
    If enough members sign up the trade wouldn't need to be the same two trading. You give a day out and in return you have a day coming from anybody in any area. The BOC board would act as the holder of deposits and withdraws.
    I'm sure there could be problems but could it be worked out or would it end up being a source of friction ?

    The thing to remember here is that I am always wrong about everything except what I'm right about. You could say I am right every time unless I am wrong. Like I said thinking out loud.

    I am willing to take a brother fishing anytime he comes through here if he has the time and I have the gas in the boat to do so. I wouldn't think of charging someone to fish with me. Just bring along some good conversation and we are good to go.

    That option used to be on the board.
    I would also like to see it come back. And it would be nice to trade out trips.

    Now that sounds lke a plan.Don't have a boat but always willing to take someone along to do a little bank fishing. Can't grantee you'll catch fish cause I don't seem to be able to. would love the company though.

    I love that idea. I have a house right on the James River that is sitting empty and would be open to letting a BOC member use it for a few days even if I couldn't get time to fish myself. There is a boat ramp 100 yards from the house.

    Now Jack, if JW is a comin you'd best let me know so's I can go out and get me a pair of lead boots. He has promised to use me as an anchor, is big enough to do it, but my banty bu** wouldn't hold down much and I would have to be hospitable.... even if I am a Yankee! Anytime anyone wants to fish up here just give us Ohio boys a call.

    This is a cool Idea and I would support it but there may be a slight problem.
    I do believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that some states look upon trades as a kind of revenue and they are taxable. It would have to be a pretty sorry I.R.S. character to bust a person for trading a fishing trip but there are some pretty sorry characters out there...W

    We could word it to say I am willing to give take a person fishing. or Is anyone willing to take me fishing. Your point is very important. I think it is about time for a moderator to post here and shoot this idea down or maybe help us out so we could do this within the rules and laws. I will ask a mod to check out thread.
