Negative...few people have their location in their profile. And most guys that fish don't fish only right outside their doors :)

 

Folks are welcome to post the general location in accordance with the current guidelines...which is limited to the area within a county - eastern Hudson...northern Monmouth...southern Ocean <--- all welcome and allowed...contrary to how some folks make them feel :wave:

Super new here, sorry if I missed it - is there a list of rules somewhere? Would have been happy to share my locations, just to be helpful to others ... but won’t if it breaks the rules.

 

Edit: saw your mention of counties, and the same suggestion in another post. Is this the only level of detail we can provide? Is town info too detailed?

Doug, there are Guidelines at the top of the page. Each fishing report thread also usually explains that counties are as specific as we’d like here. Contrary to what some folks imagine, sharing the county rather than directions to their boot prints helps far more people by not sending report chasers to a specific spot where they can litter, park on lawns, slam car doors and play loud music at 3am while putting on their boots. There is nothing but downside to sending people to the exact scene of the last fish someone saw someone  land...the fish move...and they move much better than report chasers and their litter :)

I live in Massachusetts and the most iconic spot is cape cod canal. So, how do I go about reporting or describing this area? 

Do I keep it to west end east end and middle? Do i mention tide, time of day pictures of fish? A spot like this is more popular then most. So does it fall under different parameters?

Everything but location, I would think, the whole point is to not draw crowds to spots that are already too crowded, I think the Canal fits that criteria. (I'm thinking of the RR bridge this past year)

All the other info is what will be most useful to other fishermen, not what rock you were standing on.

Love the Canal, BTW, even if I haven't yet had one of those "epic" trips, it's still a beautiful place to spend some time.
