Is this good or bad?
It depends on what you put out on the accessable parts of the site. Foir instance if I were to mention a particularly good, small lake, that was producing 3+ lb rainbows regularly, you would see a large increase in the number of anglers on that water in the space of a week. It is one of the reasons that I am reluctant to respond when a new member (or in some cases, a long-time member) jumps on a report of mine and wants to be handed the GPS co-ordinates to that water. It is not only viewed by that member, but all other members (with whatever access they have to the forum I am in), but if done in an open area, then it is viewed by all and sundry internet users.

I agree and found out the hard way a few years back when mentioning a crabbing area that all of a sudden in the span of a month had more floats out than I had seen in years. Lots of people view this site looking for some "free info" without caring about giving back.

I am pretty quiet now about areas other than just general basic info.

Three can keep a Secret if Two are Dead!

Loose Lips Sink Ships is the MOTO that I use............

I never had the net when I started out fishing as the only real way of learning it to get off your @$$ and learn it yourself......

I would agree with your statement, Slayer, but to a point.

When I moved from Ontario to BC almost 18 years ago, I pretty much gave up fishing for my career, family, etc. When I moved up Island I had more time to get back into fishing and the first place I turned to was the Internet (and the Library). Fishing for Walleye in the Trent River is much different than fishing for rainbows on a lake and I needed to learn an entirely new method of fishing as well as I switched to the fly.

This site, along with 2 others, have given me all the info I needed (and then some) to get back into a sport I've loved for 35 years.

While specific location info should be given sparingly (through PM?), methodologies, techniques and "tricks of the trade" will always be given freely by myself and I'm sure, a few others :beerchug:
