Getting frustrated

7 posts in this topic

This isn't fishing related and I wasn't sure where to bring it up. First off, hat's off to everyone that is involved in keeping this site the best one for outdoors types like me. It's by far my favorite (most time spent on) site.

That said, the last few months, it seems that the site is often "sluggish" and takes quite some time to go from thread to thread. I thought it might be my computer, but I've experienced the slowness on several computers. Seems like the "Slowskies" have taken over.

Don't mean to complain, but it has been getting frustrating staring at a blank screen and waiting for the blue bar on the bottom to move. Better than before this site was around, but not as good as it could be, as has been in the past, though.

I've been noticing that too. It's probably due to the fact that there's alot of sportsman on this site right now. Because ice fishing season is here finally!

There has been some discussion in the "ice" forum. There has been some huge increases and members and traffic this fall and this has contributed to the slow down.

The admind have been working on this and I can say that it is 100% better today than it was on monday. There are several other reasons for the slowdown and its taking a while to weed through all the factors. I know its sped up for me and it keeps getting better every day. Hang in there.

Thanks for the replies. Hope things get better soon. It took nearly 10 mins to login and get a reply in. I hope the success / popularity of FM doesn't become it's downfall. I have no problem bouncing around other sites. I realize not as many people on them, but at least I can "travel" around without getting stuck. Very reminiscent of the dial-up days when I first started using FM. We can do better.

There always seems to be twice as many anonymous, sometimes three times as many.

I think Hanson hit the nail on the head in another thread. Peak times!

Between 8:30-9:45 am this morning, I was sailing free and clear. Now between 12:00 and 12:45 p.m. (lunch rush), is slowed way down again.

I just wait and came back later if need be. I think FM is worth waiting for.

On another note, I could see where this would be hard for members that like to peak on threads a lunch time. You only get about have time to read and respond, verses a normal day.

The powers to be will work it out. I would just be patient. I gets me to do some work for once at work. grin.gif

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip. Cliff & Casey are regular contributors here and members of the Lake Vermilion Guides League.  https://lakevermilionguidesleague.com/.    Good Luck!

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
