What is a "Useful" report

Rate this topic

100 posts in this topic

My opinion:

 

Some of the report are kind of like:

 

"I'm a great fisherman cause I caught some fish and you didn't. Screw you if you want more info than that"

 

When I read a report like that I think "what a waste of time for that guy to post and for me to read".

 

Information is what we crave....good, accurate, timely and GENERAL information

 

1) General Area.......very general.....bay, back bay, river, ocean, some jetty, OC, So Mo Co

2) General time of day/hours fished

3) Method......clams, worms, bombers, soft plastics

4) Perhaps some statement on Conditions like tide, current, waves, wind, weather.

I want to see water temps. I thought the guy that posted the back bay temps was helpful and the variations were interesting to see. I like the pictures and maybe what lure they got them on. A fun story always helps

I would imagine most members can't be down to the water as often as they like and most probably live further away than they prefer so it is an easy means of assessing the fishery. Cell phones are taboo on here and many think it is more practical to post it on a reports thread for the masses to see as compared to calling a friend. If you look at the reports thread you can see with less than 1/2 the month gone it has over 12k views already. That is why general information is preferred. I was always curious why some forums use report threads but others don't.

calling a friend.

 

One phone call will inevitably turn into many more. Seems we are beyond phone calls...fishing report text messages fly around like u-tube videos go viral. Hell a phone call would bide you a few more minutes!

Everyone is entitled to there opinion on what is acceptable or has the greater repercussions. I assure you 12,000 people don't view 1 text message or phone call. So for all those who complained about what occurred in the park last fall ask yourself ,was it due to websites like this one and/or some local tackle shops site or cell phones? My answer would be a little of both but to not accept that the Internet is responsible for most of it are in denial or just not paying attention.

Makes no difference to me if there are 25 fisherman at a rock pile and a dozen more standing there holding their poles or a few hundred....it sucks either way you look at it. Access to your favorite spots will continue to constrict thanks to greedy slob fisherman who feel they should be able to park next to the 45 other fishing trucks, piss and dump on lawns and places of religion, throw away their butts and garbage, and turn a quiet place into a **** hole...whats one more angler added to the already 50 that are already there? Many people- including experienced fisherman contribute to this abomination. Cell phones and the internet did this. Which one is worse...does it really matter?

 

What happened at the park a few months ago i found it to be funny- only because i don't fish. I knew about what was happening there weeks before seeing that infamous picture- which by the way some jackass decided to frame a few copies and put up for sale at the flea market. :freak: What goes on today is atrocious and an abomination...getting mugged in the middle of january in the middle of the night on a jetty tip by 3 guys...is an atrocity...i wasn't brought up surf fishing like this, but that's what its become, and you either adapt to it or stop doing it all together.

This cracks me up everytime I see a report debate. You hardcore beach and jetty types need to relax. We all lump up on anyone that tries to block our access to the beach at all but God forbid someone else with a fishing pole shows up to try to enjoy the same hobby as you.
