Why bother, no one wants to help any one. Seriously, that is it I have given reports for ever time I have gone out. No one esle has. It could have been a useful tool for those who get out once a week but no we don't report.

I live at 9500, erickson Dr burnaby. 1808 buzzer 6136 if you have a problem with this my statments.

As I said to Jason in a PM after he gave me some advice for Thrasher area.........got one hook up this past weekend, but lost the fish. I was in about ~100 just using a buzz bomb.....we didn't hit it too hard as I was over there for a sailing race. Got a few yellow eyes and that was about it. BTW.....the prawning down in that area is pretty tough and the commercial guys are working it pretty hard. Watched a few differernt commercial boats put down plenty of traps. In 3 pulls we managed a very very meager 22 prawns that were all rather small.

bigjay has a point this site has gone downhill, I for one don't post anymore and have learned that to ask serious questions is usualy allmost futile as my questions mostly go ignored.
It seems as if there is a CLICK at this site that a great many of us are no longer incouraged to be a part of.
I have gotten to the point where I read the posts for the miniscule bits of info that ocassionaly leak out but see more evidence of members hiding behind PM's and ranting *DO NOT POST ABOUT* that stream or that lake.

Fishing I thought! was a fun thing to be shared with others.
Just an off the wall suggestion but maybe it is time the members of this site begin to apply the same principles. :evil:

Some One isn't happy..

Big Jay.. I have no idea what brought that on...but if people aren't posting...that's cuz there is NOTHING to report from their end of the world.

If they've got some little secret, then trust me..it won't be a secret for long....there's too many people out there with binoculars.

WOW :?

Hey Jay ... I've never met you ........ but I have read a lot of your reports and have enjoyed them ..... only reason that I don't respond or add to them is that I don't usually ever fish where you do. I also have provided ...... at times ..... what I consider some useful information about a lake, river, or "hot spot" when it is appropriate to the conversation going on.

I take it from your comment that you obviously don't feel you are getting back what you contribute. Personally, I don't care if others provide info. openly and guard their little secrets ....... it just makes it more fun and satisfying to figure it out by yourself anyways.

Probably the key to enjoying this forum is ........ 1) DON'T PROVIDE INFORMATION WITH THE MIS-CONCEPTION (OR REGRET) THAT YOU WILL GET THE SAME BACK IN RETURN. 2) ONCE YOU GIVE UP YOUR INFORMATION IT'S LIKE THE GARBAGE YOU SET OUT ON THE STREET .... IT'S NOT YOURS ANYMORE. OTHERS CERTAINLY ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO SHARE THEIR GARBAGE (INFO.) WITH YOU.

I for one don't care ...... I catch plenty of fish ..... always have ...... always will. I'm sure you catch your share too pal. :)

I share information to help others enjoy the sport we love. If other's don't share ....... WELL ........ I guess that just makes me a little better person.

This is usually the case.

I for one don't post anymore and have learned that to ask serious questions is usualy allmost futile as my questions mostly go ignored.
Usually if a question goes un answered it's because nobody has one for that inquiry...like most of the other members and moderators, I personally don't have enough time in my day to sit and read through every single post...So yes personally I do miss threads, and I'm sure everyone else does too. However personally I try to do the best I can to respond if I have anything to pass along or add.

As for a click at this site that a great many of us are no longer incouraged to be a part of...I'm not sure where you came up with this notion but, I think you're way off. Everyone is encouraged to contribute to this site, that's the whole purpose of it..

For those of you who don't get the reply on questions you're looking for, then this site has a nice little tool at the top of the task bar...it's called the search engine.. Totally self expanatory and easy to use..

Finder :? :?: :?:

bigjay, I have read almost every report that comes through here in the last year and have usually enjoyed and benefited from the wealth of information provided by our members and guests...your posts have always been very informative and interesting and display a passion for the sport that I think we all can relate to. Although I do not fish the chuck anymore it is always a pleasure to read your posts and despite the fact that I have little to contribute in the saltwater department, the reads are great and always appreciated....
thanks,
rib

Jay: I see that you've editted your post. I was just kinda shocked at the !%#$&* 's that's all. :? Anyway man, I've always enjoyed and appreciated your reports from the Chuck. Keep 'em coming. My dad is going to put his boat in the water soon, he moors his boat near Horseshoe Bay, so I'll try to report any action we have or see when we do get to fish the area. Cheers man! -Nathan in NW

I don't think you missed much. I also don't think anyone in particular pissed off BigJay. Seems he is unhappy that others don't provide posts on fishing reports as he does. While he is entitled to his opinion it sounds like a one for you and one for your horse attitude to me.

Just to show you guys how bored everyone is, and why it is "in between" seasons, it appears to me that this thread has had more hits than any other topic for a long time. I guess everyone is requiring a little contraversy, or perhaps doesn't read the papers. With all the recent developments on the commercial fishery, the native only fishery and proposed short openings for the sportfishers, I thought there would be plenty to discuss.......Not much in the way of fishing reports right now. I guess there are no really HOT spots........If some of the closures on the rivers start affecting the weekend warriors, you won't have anything to post at all!......Bigjay.....I agree some inquiries are not well responded to, and reports may be a bit slim at times, but I am sure a lot of people just read and do not post.......keep the reports coming, ....tight lines....Ortho

I too have noticed a lower level of participation here relative to my home forum.

Word of encouragement and thanks goes a long way. If you take to time to read and gain from the post you should express yourself and tell the author - keep the wheels of information turning.

It is participation that make this whole forum concept work. You don't need to give away your honey holes or favorite spots to participate. Posting hot bites and fav rigging always is well received.

We are head to Bamfield this weekend so you can count on report upon our return.

Cheers - 5-Salt.

Never posted before but enjoy the reading!

Ihave been reading and enjoying the conversations greatly for a year or so. Due to inexperience I found that really did not have much to add. Please all of the long timers and others that post your comments and insights are greatly appreciated. event the conversations that get off topic are fun to read. Kind of funny how it goes even a message board is a just microcosm of the greater outdoors. The good the bad and the ugly hey it's just fishing.

Thanks again and hopefully in the coming months I will have a chance to add something to the board.

Hitch,

Yours is a good point about not feeling like you can contribute.

If is however quite the contrary. Everytime you fish post a report of where, type of water, water temp, water visability, cloud conditions, rain/sun, and what worked and did not work along with picture or two of your success. Did you fish deep or on top, did you fish the tailout, riffles or pools. That information is like gold to those of us trying figure what to do this weekend.

A lot of oldtimers won't tell you this but that detailed level of information is extremely helpful to all of us. Helps us figure out what to fish, when to fish, and what is going on out there. I am firm believer that reports and current information help everyone become a better angler. In return you will find people will be much more inclined to offer tips, stratagies that help you grow in your skill - particularly if you are struggling. Could be just no fish, or the bite is off, or you are working the wrong water...what ever, it sure would be nice to know.

90% of fishing is knowing that you have the right offering on that day - that confidence of knowing will strengthen your resolve and help you to hone your presentation.

Final note: taking notice of the above requested information will help you to develop a gut feel and improve your success rate dramitcally - your best anglers take note of all of those variables for reason.

Good luck to you and look forward to seeing your's and other's reports.
