Fishing: print or the web?

5 posts in this topic

I have one more question for everyone:

Where are you finding QUALITY information about fishing techniques, news and products - fishing forum websites (like FM) or print (In-Fish, Outdoor News)?

I use the web for doing my main research on different lakes and I try to get out to at least one a year of the seminars put out by the FM pro staff for species information.

The web narrows down my lakes and what lures ect. but the mags. give me a new way of fishing.

I find the print media or my local news gives me more and better info on fishing. Some times fisherman can get tight lippd about whats working for them.

Nothing beats Bluewater Bait though. like the old general store might say if they dont have it you dont need it. As far as fishing info goes. and bait and tackle and pop.

Mostly on print.

Techniques are more detailed and technical. Products are promoted on EVERY page in magazines, even within the articles themselves. A lot of news is best in print, and due to forum policies, a lot cannot be discussed because it gets opinionated and political and gets deleted right away.

However, people spill their guts on the internet. Unfortunatly, a lot of posts tell you exactly what, when, where and how. Which in the end is all people need, and its free to boot! A sad reality IMO

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
