    Posted by eagertofish on August 5, 2015 at 6:46 am

    hey im chris, recently medically retired army paratrooper with no clue as to how to catch fish…. lol growing up my dad and i did some trout fishing and a little crappie fishing but we never went bass fishing. so now here i am in my late 20s with a boat and all kinds of tackle but not a clue as to how or what to use. i have a few friends from the army that are willing to teach me a thing or two but they are a few states away, id rather have someone who knows percy preist to teach me a few things just key fundamentals that i can show my wife and eventually my son. i really want to do a guide trip with BCGS soon but the army doesn’t pay me enough to do it just yet lol. i live less than 3 miles from poole knobbs so i can be there whenever. if anyone is interested just let me know ive been trying to fish every day or every other day on or if nothing else at night. honestly i dont think ive went but maybe 4 times out of about 30 that i havent caught at least one i just want to know why i caught them lol. any hands on stuff would be great cause honestly i was telling my wife i feel dumb for getting the membership to the site before i really know anything about the lake or at least bass fishing lol but slowly i am learning a little from here, i just do better with hands on stuff.

    That trip that you are wanting to go on will be priceless… Been out on 4 or 5 trips with him and I feel a lot more confident I would say… Not a pro but I do catch some fish every trip… Welcome to the site..

    Hey Chris, I am Brian. I would love to fish with you sometime. I am currently in the Army National Guard and just came back from a deployment to Afghanistan. I am sure we could trade some stories and have a great time on the boat. I don’t get on the water no where near as much as i would like but do make it from time to time. Let me know a good time and hopefully we can work it out.

    Hey Chris,

    I know this isnt what your looking for but if you want to take a trip out with Brian I’ll be glad to pay for it as a THANK YOU for your service to our country! I have a lot of friends that served and can not show enough thank you and support to you all.

    Thanks
    Eric

    I really want to take you up on that but I will have to talk to my wife and more than likely she will have to talk me into it lol. I knew what I was doing when I signed up thank you for your generosity and I will get back to you!

    my wife talked me into it cause she has little faith in my fishing too lol! thank you both for your generosity, im not really sure how to do it but maybe yall can get with brian on the payment part and once that is done he can get with me and set up a date and time? regardless i cant wait for this as this will be one of the most memorable trips of my life, aside from my son catchin his first fish lol. as far as going out on your boat i have a service dog in training so it would probably be easiest to either just take mine or i can just kind of shadow you and learn as we go. its amazing i got on here just the other day and so many are willing to help thank you again my number is 6154992696 just let me know a day or so before you plan on going and i should be able to make it thanks!!
