    I am proud to be a catfisherman and a part of the BOC. I was excited and nervous about attending my first BOC gathering; however the nervousness did not last long after we arrived in Cannelton for the week-end. Great facility, really nice cabin, good food, and really GREAT people made this a week-end to remember.
    Thanks to Barry for getting this started and for the great Wall-Eye. What a cook!! Congratulations to Bill and Winston for their big catches! Thanks to all who made us feel welcome! What a great group of really great folks.
    Thank You

    :wink:

    Well guys and girls Im really sorry that I couldnt spend more time shootin the bull with all you fine folks but you know how family things go and I guess weddings are pretty important. I would however like to say thanks to Bill and Barry I thought they did a fine job planning this thing. I would like to say congatulations to Bill and winston on the fish they caught and I would like to say thank you to Adam for showing me how to use a depth finder and how to drift fish successfully. Im already looking forward to the next gathering Hopefully no weddings this time!:angry:

    Great pics Bill! Thanks for doing all the legwork putting this thing together. It turned out great. I made a post on the gathering thread, but I'll say it again, it was great seeing everyone, thanks for making it a success.
