    I got to Bass Pro early and walked around a bit. Then finally went in just minutes before opening. I walk right over to the reel and ask about the baitrunner 6500B, I notice a guy who looked familiar looking on. Never butting in yet, Watching out for a Brother Cat fisherman. I walked over and picked up some 50 lb. Power pro. I am watching this Guy cause I know WE NEED TO TALK! this guy was 20 feet or better away from me and Knew It was 50 Lb test. Finally I guess When I went to look for hooks was just enough. I go to look for some hooks and the conversation was on. Even turned me onto some really nice rods for a decent price. Ugly 8' h.
    After alto of very good information. He promoted the BOC. We Had a good time talking and went on with our days. After having to deal with things in town. Remember I Like to stay around my gravel roads. Seen more people today than I do in a month out here. I was heading out of town and decided to take his advise and picked up 2 of those rods. It helped that my wife told me I should go back and get em, after I explained my morning to her.
    She's a peach, my wife.

    The BOC brothers are the BEST.
    You Know who you are and I'd go fishing with you Any Time!

    That just goes to show you what kind of people the BOC is made of. Nothing but great and helpful brothers and sisters. Jay good luck with you new equipment.

    Brandon, Im not scared to get muddy. After seeing Shelby sink in 1 1/2 ft, and Im twice his weight, I decided there wasnt enough guys there to dig me out. I really commend you guys for fishing in that slop. That was real bad, and after hearing from you later that you guys didnt catch anything, and your other buddy got stuck up past his knees in mud, I think I made the right decision. Ill be down again, just not when its that muddy. :smile2:
