    Number 1 reason of course is it is a catfishing site,,There are many other reasons also..I was a member of the old B.O.C. For a few years, I hardly ever posted, because I was used to the virtual bullitin format the the new B.O.C. uses, and I did not like the layout of the old forum, sorry just being honest :D ,I told my self if the boc ever changed formats it would be hands down the best catfishing site on the internet. And now I feel it is...In the short time I have been here I have met some nice people who I would consider friends, even if they are internet friends...I think the site will get much better as we grow, and spring fishing season starts...I personally plan to add alot of topics and fishing pics when the weather breaks..It is nice knowing you have people here you can shown off your catch to and they wont think you are bragging...I belong to other fishing forums, one is a large Ohio forum, I have a lot of post there, but have slowly moved away from there because the catfishing talk has gotten less and less, and most of the people are bass and walleye fishermen who look down there noses at catfishermen..I also am a moderator at a fairly large hunting and fishign combo site, which I am slowly loseing interest in also....But I know I am here to stay..It also helps to know my views as a catch and release catfisherman are respected, even if they are not agreed with by some..Heres to many good years to the B.O.C..And I hope we are up to 10000 members by next christmas..

    My Thanks to Paul, and everyone else who has made this site a sucess!

    great posts.
    i will have to agree on one thing even when they disagree here it is done in a adult and respectful manner. and that i like. i was a mod and super moderator on a couple of other sites non fishing related i quit both since if found this place this year. sure love going to a place with no forum trolls and forum rambos.

    again, great posts. i love this site. it is really the only site of its kind i ever even bother with. i think one of the best things about it is the people. the honesty at which most of us will try and answer questions and try and help our fellow catmen out. you dont see this kind of thing from the bass crowd. i also love the fact that there are so many of us practicing cpr. this is really a relatively new thing in catfishing. i thank god for doug stangey and those guys over at infishermen for really getting this thing out to such a large audience. catfish deserve the same if not more respect as bass and other big game species and infishermen really did alot ot get this thing going now its up to us to try and educate people as well. we need to get the word out about this site to as many people as possible. the old site had a place where you could download a flyer to post . is there one here anywhere? we all need to get some of them and start posting them in baitshops and stuff. if any of you guys can help i would appreciate it. thanks.

    This is my first post, registered the other day. Been lurkin around BOC for a few weeks reading posts. Been a catfisherman for over 30 yrs. To be honest I don't usually get involved to much on these kind of sites, because it seems to somehow turn into arguements over non fishing topics. I have'nt seen that here in the last few weeks, so here I am willing to share and maybe pick up a few tricks on a sport I really love. MERRY CHRISTMAS :D

    Jack,

    Your back at the tip of the BOC spear. Was making changes earlier based on e-mail inputs from members.

    Congrats on the show-case!


    Thanks,
    Paul

    Good post Jack. I'm like you and have several other sites I visit and I'm a mod. on a hunting/fishing site. Your right about the catfishing talk starting to slow down quite a bit. I love catfishing and that is why I always come here and this is the best catfishing site around. Glad to be a part of it.

    I have met some genuine good people from the BOC events we had at Irvine. Really cool guys and some guys who serve our country. Without a doubt some good sticks too.

    I gotta admit that I like the site alot! I was a member of the old site also. I mostly just read and post once in a while. Since the site changed I like it a lot better! I do wonder what happened to some of the people that posted alot on the old site though? As far as I'm concerned this is without a doubt the best fishing site I've ever visited!!!! :) I have visited lots of sites, however most of them I never return to as they are BS & not worth the trouble. Also I like the fact that it is obvious that the people here truely enjoy helping each other! :) I've seen a lot of guys/gals here that I believe I would really enjoy fishing with when I get moved back home to Possum Kingdom Lake, TX from WA State! Can't wait to get back to fishing for real fish. The only fishing here that even compares to catfishing is sturgeon in the Columbia river. They are big & almost as much fun as flats. Again GREAT SITE! :)
