    I suppose this is as good a place as any for a first post. I stumbled upon your site a few days ago and decided to join. I'm 30, soon to be 31, and the husband of the beautiful girl that I dated in High School. I'm also the father of the sweetest 2 kids you've ever layed eyes on. Bella is the oldest at almost 2 years and Cade is the newest at 5 months. We live in Boiling Springs, NC near the Broad River just about the state line. I'm a life long outdoorsman, waterfowler and catfisherman. I went to college on a rodeo and acedenic scholarship (still doesn't mean I can spell) and graduated from Oklahoma Panhandle State University in 1998. I worked as a cowboy while out there working cattle and breaking horses. I did turn pro as a bareback rider but after a couple years I figured out that the good Lord had better plans for me that Prorodeo. Since then I've had a few jobs but currently I'm a Building Codes Enforcement Officer (darn building inspector) and I started a logging company a little over a year ago that I'm in the process of building. Hopefully in the future I won't be able to afford to work for the county anymore and can cut wood fulltime. We primarily hunt and fish the Broad River from Cliffside down to 99 Islands. We fish the Catawba river and lakes some. We also spend about half dozen weekends a year on either the Santee River or Bull Creek near M.B. Around 2000 we used to sell a lot of fish but nowdays I work enough. I fish for the relaxation and throw most everything back. Glad to be apart of the group herea nd I'll try to contribute when I can.

    Welcome to the BOC, your next family. You will love it here. I noticed you have a great sense of humour with your speling of acadenic.... You mentioned you went to Oklahoma Panhandle State University?
    I did not know that they had schools of higher learning in Oklahoma (OU and OSU football palyers can spell?)

    I have to ask, Did you get a degree in... Panhandling? :wink:

    Anyhow Welcome to the BOC!

    Hi Colt! Welcome to the Brotherhood of Catfishermen family. We're glad to have you :smile2:! It's always nice to see another NC neighbor get on board. I live in Hickory and fish the Catawba chain generally. Jump right in, get your feet wet, and enjoy yourself here on the BOC. It's a great place!

    Welcome aboard Colt. Question, do you reel in cat fish like the rest of us or do you hop on their backs and ride them into submission? lol :happy:
