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

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
