Travis your new and probably don't understand that the owner of this site gives us a wide berth in what we can say or do. The big No no. Is coming on here and promoting your business or shelling for another. The reason is that the owner of the site has a business that sells gear and has sponsors that pay for us to have this bandwidth. This is his income and we have all signed an agreement, you included to not break that rule. You mention my friend Mike P who I think very highly of and I myself am happy he is going commercial. The thing is Mike would never break a rule like you did. Neither would I.
As for why I poked you well when a moderator removed Manny's link you jumped right in and posted his business so you broke the rules. Kind of shoving it into the face of the Moderator who was doing his job protecting this site.
Not knowing you, I checked your other post and EVERYONE was pushing someones commercial business. 13 post in a year and not one question asked or answered. Or trying to help some one learn about our fishery. Heck no sports forum, no Tavern, no gear suggestions There was not one where you were basically just being part of the community. Not even your new guy joke.
So I hope that clears up what I was seeing. It had nothing to do with Mike P just on what I saw on this site that you posted at that time.
Now for a,
Welcome to the site.
Stick around and get involved with the community this site is. You will get more information on anything striper if you ask the questions. Or you can help others learn what this fishery means to us.
