    Since a bunch of us are meeting up in a few days for the gathering and some of us don't know others very well I thought it would be a good idea if we shared some info about ourselves. What we do, where we live and what other things we like to do besides chasing catfish.

    My name is Phil, I am 38 years old and I live down in Fairfield in S.E. Iowa. I work at a factory as a journeyman tool & die maker slash production CNC progammer. I am married (17 years next march) with 2 boys ages 10 & 7. My hobbies are hunting whitetails, (archery, shotgun, muzzleloader and handgun) turkey and fishing for whatever is biting.

    How about you? What do you do?

    It doesn't matter if you are going to the gathering or not. Introduce yourself.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    Herb Eutsler, retired and loving it. Been married 36 yrs and one daughter. She lives in Mankato Minn, with her family, so I go up there quite often and fish a few lakes up there. I fish for anything, but mainly cat. Deer hunt, crossbow, muzzy and shotgun. I like to squirrel hunt and call up turkey. I use to pheasant hunt but health and leg won't allow that anymore. I live in SE Iowa close to where the Cedar and Iowa meet and fish the Mississippi often. I'm always willing to learn, that is why I joined this site.

    My name is Brandon, I'm 23. I work construction with my uncle, it's a small 3 man crew and we do everything from interior work to building additions, siding, roofing etc. I am currently in the Army Reserves as a Motor Transportation Operator, (basically a glorified truck driver) We are looking at a possible deployment in May of 09 which will suck for not being able to fish for awhile. I have a daughter Emma who was born July 10th and the greatest thing ever :)... I am getting married on September 13th... other than that my life revolves around fishing. Mostly Catfish but occasionally ill get lazy and throw a bobber on and sit at a lake. sorry to ramble... good luck at the gathering and sorry I cant make it this year...

    I am new to this forum. I found it looking for Sonnys online because I cant find it anywhere else. I`m Jason and I live in Sioux Center. Which means I fish a long ways from some of you. Mostly in the Big Sioux right now. What do I do? I can bend steel! Alls I have to do is put the part in the machine and step on the pedal. I have a wife and 2 little girls. They love to go fishing. The kids do. I rediscovered my love of catfishing this summer.I used to live in Okaloosa and fished the Des Moines a lot mostly below Red Rock. When I moved to Sioux Center I quit catfishing and just fished walleye. I had forgotten the fun of finding a bait stick, jamming the worm down in the jar and feeling the pull of a hungry cat. I still love to fish for just about anything. Especially thru the ice.I also hunt quite a bit. I like to hunt squirrels but the squirrel hunting is kinda poor around here. I grew up in Miss and KY where the squirrel hunting is AWESOME. I remember having 6 squirrels in one mast tree, sometimes both grays and fox. Now I see 6 in a day. But I hunt waterfowl, roosters, partridge deer and turkeys. And antelopes in SD. Have a good day.

    I know we already had the gathering but I just read all of your bios and got a big kick out of J.D. and the rest of you that I didn't know very much about.

    I am sorry you couldn't make it. Hope all the fam stuff is going okay.

    I am thirty-two and married 11 years to Catmandingo. Altogether we have five kids. One is out and on her way so we still have four at home ages 15, 11, 10, and 8.

    I have a masters in Statistics from Iowa State and I teach math and stat classes at DMACC, Grand View College, and Drake University. I love to camp, fish, and do all sorts of other stuff too!!

    I have really enjoyed getting to know those of you who I already do and I look forward to meeting more of you!!

    We will have to plan more than one get together next season!
