What happened there used to be a lot more posts posted on not just this board but all of them.The last couple of months there have been a minimum of posts I know winter is approaching but I know you guys are still fishing. I went out this past weekend to mundo lake before it freezes over. Did not have a great day but did catch my linit. 3 were 12 to 13 inches and 1 was 3 pounds and last was 4.5 pounds. All caught on a gold cast master. That lure really works at mundo lake.

:sonar:.All boards get this way every year,people are preoccupied,this year the fishing has been slow for many,lot of frustration out there with many lakes an the prices to fish them an the poor results,the economy being what it is many want to at least catch dinner,all an all this Board seems to be doing pretty good,lot of new people posting,asking Q's,talking about there trips etc.when they get a few replies then things usually open up.Keep in mind that we talk about a lot more than fishing,there's over a dozen forums covering all kinds of stuff an many go unanswered due to our tunnel vision on what we look for.Just a thought.........Don

[QUOTE=Cofaxtroutman;795806]I think this board has gone down hill ever since it changed formats, just my opinion.[/QUOTT/) I don't care much for the new V Bulletin format myself, but as others, I have adjusted to it,some have left because of it,nonetheless the board is growing,friendships are being made between new an old members,an as another thread has pointed out we are getting tighter (camaraderie is growing),the bad apples are being weeded out an several members are returning an posting again and I'm positive more will return as we continue to grow an mature....Don

Some of us just don't spend enough time looking on the computer. Since I retired I have more time to fish, so that is my goal. Today I went shopping though for stuff for the boat......Jetspray

i think a lot of people are busy with the holidays coming up and people that come on this board, read a little, and get sparked so they go out and fish. but this board seems to be pretty friendly and everyone seems to get along and help each other out. fishing is knowledge.

I agree with this statement. Since the old boards are gone I lost all of my PMs that contained really valuable information. I can't even access old posts from the old forum, which also has valuable information. I was so angry when I first found out it was gone forever ugh...........

I would agree with others that since the format change things went down hill.I have to admit after the change I moved to the other site.I do visit a couple times a month but do not post much.

I have been doing more catching then fishing.

Whether it's SWBNation, Wbass, BassRes, IMH, Sniff, "they all have different formats."
Fact is, they are all easy to use so I don't see what the deal is here.

11-19-2010, 09:07 PM
this is just my 2cents some will agree to disagree. i fill that people stop posting trips because they didnt want other fisherman to blow up the spot. how i fill is you can give any body a pole,gear and the hottest spot on the map but that dosent mean they will be successful. it is what it is, but as far as i go i will contuing to post when i go fishing some are great days with big fish an other are nothing but snags. how i fill is, i got in to the sport of fishing from other fisherman helping me to get better an hook up,so i will do my part an give back!!

These boards are to help others. I fish for trout, which are planted for us to catch. I also fish for Kokanee, which are planted for us to catch. I will always help others. I post on both boards. I hope others do the same!!! Robbie

The board is definately slower, But I like the new format. Some people don't like change. The initial transition was rough but the finished product is nice.

I blame Fishbucket. Once I finally caught a keeper sturgeon fishing his boat for the first time, I gave up buying pounds of grass shrimp and ghost by the dozen to shorefish out at Sonoma Creek, Napa River or Port Sonoma in the mud and usually only catching bat rays or nothing at all. Another reason I don't fish as much is that someone decided to close my leopard shark fishing hole out at Drake's Estero and make it a harbour seal habitat. People could be getting tired of posting only to have their methods or fish taken questioned by other's. The main reason people aren't posting is the Giant's did awesome this year and finally won the WORLD SERIES! Hopefully around this time next year the boards will once again be quiet as the G-Men go for a repeat.

Jetspray,
I was just joking around with ya. I know you use to post huge numbers in them old sniff
days. Some of the old gang moved on to other sites but it is what it is. I happen to like this
site better than most just because these moderators are a bit more relaxed.

Kind of hard to troll for trout out of Ranger bass boat. I'm only limited to rapala's at 3.0 mph. Can we switch this to Camanche? HogHunter won't have a chance! "I'll just tailgate kokemachine's rig" :grin:
Fyi: You know I had to steel that pic just because camotracker took one of mine!:bananadevil:

Dang, I best stop posting...catching up to Jetspray!

I purchased a kicker bracket a few years ago and it's still in the closet. When it came down to drilling them holes, just couldn't do it.
By the way Robbie, I tried looking for some firetiger's in F-09 and it seems that you've purchased every last one in Amador county! I guess it'll be F-05's for me.:cheesy: I'll be on the water Monday or Tuesday heading up past the bridge. I'm thinking them big boyz might be in that colder Pardee River water???

The new format took awhile for me to get a handle on.
YES...I have noticed a change myself and like what i see so far.
NO...I don't see as many posts as thier once were but the ones that i see are about the sport of fishing and not a bunch of garbage posts like in the past.
It seems that most that post now stay on the subject along with the replys to that post.
With the new format and all the board being better or worse is a matter of opinion and we all have one.I have noticed new blood coming to the board and bringing new and interesting posts that i feel this board needs.
I log on to try and get new an different info as to where,what,and when.Then the next time i'm on the water i try what i have read and hope it works for me.
(If nothing else i look for Robbie on the water and follow at a distance.)
