    Hey I was wondering if there are any generous BOC members here on the Mo or the IL side that wouldn't mind taking 1-2 people with them on a fishing trip on one of the big rivers? I don't have a boat or access to one and I really want to get out on a boat for some big cats, because I haven't caught any trophy cats yet and what to give it a shot. I have been bank fishing for many years now and have never had any luck for a nice trophy cat yet. So in the June time frame is anybody going out onto a big river (on a boat and have room for a 1-2 people)? I have plenty of gear and would be up for chipping in on gas for the boat, bring some refreshments, food, etc. So if anyone is interested please post here and let me know. Thanks!

    Anywhere near Peoria? I have one that I take on the river quite often and could probably work something out, though I mostly go on Saturdays. (and a smaller motored one for sale as well).

    I wish I lived a bit closer! Peoria is about 3 hours north from where I am at. I am about 20 minutes from downtown St. Louis, Mo.

    Josh, I believe I saw where another BOC member was looking for a fishing partner. I believe the Baldwin thread is where I saw it. Good Luck

    catmankev needed a partner.. though I do not think he hits the rivers. I could be mistaken though. Should look him up and shout at hime. He has a real nice Crappie Edition Lund. Been in it before..really nice boat he has.
