You used corn for bait? Don't sell yourself short, Jay. You are no ordinary baiter, you are a Master...

Ohio Outdoorsman:

Even though we pretty much disagree on this issue, it's been great trading opinions with you. I hope those hidden brookie streams on Ohio take off, and maybe one day you guys won't have to cross the border to go for for wild trout.
I should also point out that what each of us posts here as at our own discretion. I would never rant against you, or anyone else for what you want to say here, even if I disagree with it.
tight lines!

Bill

Perhaps a private forum for approved members or members with a certain number of posts?

It might sound like a bit of an exclusivity thing, but it would probably encourage more participation in the board IMO. I'd be willing to bet that over the course of 50 posts or so, you could flush most any trolls out... and probably get a good idea for somebody's ethics.

At least this would address some of CaptMatt's issues with posting info.

::shrug:: i dunno?


I don’t know Jay. I just don’t think the internet is the place to hold a beginning anglers hand, so to speak. Information is great and I use the internet also as a source of information but we shouldn’t rely on it to provide every single little bit of information. Let me ask ya'll this. Let’s say you move to a new area and decide to hire a guide or someone you just met offers to take you fishing. Let’s go further and say that you caught a bunch of fish off the beaten path with this person. The following weekend where are you going to fish? Would you "take the spot" or only fish it with the person who initially showed it to you? Or, would you explore the area an find some spots on your own. –Assume that no conversation was held about you returning to the same “spot”.

When I posted a stream report about the Breeches back in Jan. the very next time I went was right after the 1st snow storm and only one other car was there. Through a little discussion it was learned that this fellow was there because of some fellow named Squaretail on a flyfishing board, which he revealed he was not a member but a lurker.
Though it did no harm that day, it did confirm that people DO just use this site to their advantage and nothing else. That was a heck of a coincedence and I'm sure it means a LOT of people do the same.
I'm with the men in the middle. The "small places" can remain for those who seek them out.
Jack- those posts are a thing of beauty.

Dryflyguy,

Internet blogging has a way of making people seem like they disagree more than we actually do.

As far as Ohio Brook Trout go, its actually exciting from a conservation perspective. This who project was started by a group of gradschoolers several years ago. It involved a great deal of publicity, landowner education, multiple conservation groups, and the EPA. There is now a plan and reintroductions have been started for this distinct genetic strain of Brook Trout.

What this project didn't involve was any fishing. Why it may techniquely be legal to catch and realsease Ohio brook trout I don't do it because I have talked with several ODNR officials and their intent is that this population not be targeted at all as a sportfish. Furthermore, i'd imagine its crummy fishing, something I wouldn't do myself or reccomend to anyone.

Likewise, when I fish PA streams, I only target approved trout waters, designated wilderness streams, or those unlisted streams class B or better. I do this for two reasons. Those streams that are on the list will provide me with a decent fishing experience in terms of catching fish and that fishery can withstand the fishing pressure, even if its just me.

I see no sense in marching up and down the side of a hill with my fishing rod and bothering a bunch of small fish that really need to just be left alone.

So when I say I will share locations, I'm talking about the places I fish myself, not the marginal, struggling fisheries that we all should protect and perhaps not fish at all.

The reason I hopped in on this discussion is Concerned Angler hopped on bigjohn for talking about a stocked approved trout water which is just conterproductive on a number of levels.

If someone is fishing on "your" water because on a internet site, my reaction is great, someone else is fishing and not siting at home watching the TV and having nothing to do with the outdoors. These loafers are the people that turn into the people like the ones in my homeowners association who ban fishing in the neighborhood ponds and call animal control on deer and wild turkeys. Yes, I do get annoyed briefly when someone is in a hole I scouted out, but then go on and find another, sometimes new, often better place to fish. There is so much water out there if your willing to hoof it a half a mile away from the roads.

Now you've done it. You've hit a hot button.

I know exactly what you are talking about. I grew up in the country, but I did the suburban subdivision thing for many years. Too many years. That is why I bought a farm. Those poor bastages don't have a clue why I would want to live that far out in the country away from "civilization." I did it to save my sanity. I hope i wasn't too late.

The association rule book where I used to live is actually thicker than the phone book where i live now.

I remember one day at the old place where I was out in my front yard and I looked up and saw a bald eagle circling overhead. I looked around to see if anyone else noticed it. This was on a weekend, and there were probably a couple dozen people out and about, and not a single one of them was looking up.

Sometimes you need to stop and smell the roses.

They had a big lake there too. Don't get me started on that.

Disclaimer: This was not meant as a slam against all suburbanites or subdivisions.
