    I love the BOC because when you are in a bind and need prayer, all the BOC members are there for you. Personally, I have recieved more support from BOC members then from my own family in recent situations.

    Well, the BOC's ok.....HAHA! I'm just kiddin'. It's great! I remember the first day I came into chat, and we were all completely messin' with eachother, within five minutes of greeting. Now, where on earth could you do the exact same thing, and nobody get mad? It was great. And by the way, matt. I'm really diggin' the hat. It's you, bud. And don't let nobody tell you different. LOL!

    The BOC is awesome. I have never met any of you, and yet I feel like I know all of you. The BOC is just like it says. It's a Brotherhood. It can be serious or it can be fun. Either way, Someone is always there for one another.

    Why do you love the BOC??
    See answer for what makes this place special

    Why are you on the BOC so much??
    If I can't fish, I can at least read and "talk" about it.

    What makes this place special??
    That's easy... THE PEOPLE!!! Where else can you "hang out" with a bunch of people that understand your addiction?

    What is the #1 thing you have learned that has helped you more then anything while fishing??
    There are other hook types other than J and treble. Really, I didn't know.

    Have you referred anyone to the BOC??
    No one that joined.

    How did you find the BOC??
    Internet search for catfishing tips.

    Have you fished with anyone from the BOC??
    Not yet. It will probably happen eventually since some of us tend to fish the same holes here anyway.

    Have you been to a Gathering??
    Not yet.

    Are you planning to go to the National Gathering??
    I found the BOC too late. If I don't plan my time off well in advance, I might not get it. Was supposed to have three weeks off at the beginning of this month. Been planned for two years. I got one day.

    My favorite thing about our site is the friendship we have. I have gotten more good information in the last few months than I have my whole life . Everytime I get to talk to someone while out fishing I refer them to this site . I have also show'd it to the lady who owns Woods Bait and Tackle in Council Bluffs Iowa trying to get her to go for some kind of sponsorship , small operation but very good people , she would fit right in . And it's not just fishing we help each other with , it's everything .
    Thanks all

    I love the BOC because it's a family site,and thats hard to come by on the Web!!
    I'm on the BOC so often because even tho I haven't personally met anybody I have grown to love each and every member. You all have made me laugh and cry and like I stated before it's such a family atmosphere,and most of all all my life my most favorite thing to do is fish,I LOVE TO GO FISHING!!
    I thinks it's a pretty special place to be cause you always feel like you are among friends.
    There is no 1 thing that I have learned but there has been numerous things I have learned and I so enjoy reading all the tips. The info is astounding!
    Yes I have referred people to this site unfortuantly so far they have declined.
    I found the BOC just by scanning fishing sites on the web and one day this site just clicked on,the more I read the more facinated I became and knew I had to join.
    Has the Boc helped me catch any fish! To my despair no not yet,but I keep hoping that is soon to change.
    No I havn't fished with anyone from the BOC,but I would absolutely love to do so,talk about a BLAST that would truly be a fantastic day for me.
    No! I have not been to a gathering! I want to come but due to my husbands health that just isn't possible but I look forward to being able to do so someday.And Alas I would love to go to the National Gathering but due to reasons previously stated I am unable to do so,but God Willing maybe in the future I will be able to attend!:smile2: pk powell
