CANT EXPIRE FM COOKIES HELP

13 posts in this topic

I go to lower left of FM page,click cookies,it opens MY cookies,I click expire cookies,it takes awhile but the same page comes back and all the same cookies are there.The old format when I expired my cookies brought me back to signin cause it also loged me out.

I've been trying for awhile it seems this site is slowing down and before the new format expiring cookies,sped it up.ANY ADVICE?

You didn't say what browser you are using - it makes a big difference.

I use IE Explorer: Menu > Tools > Internet Options > (under general tab) > Browsing History > Delete > (should come up with separate options) > Delete Cookies

The minute you expire them the will re download the new ones. You need those cookies to see the board.

Thats my problem It's not logging me out,just returns me to my cookies,and the same cookie list.

I know it will install the cookies again,The needed cookies,But FM has slowed down sooo much I probably have lots of stored cookies that are not needed,whick is most likly slowing it down.

Then try closing IE and going to "control panel" then to "Internet Options" then under the General tab click on "delete cookies" and allow it to delete your cookies. While you are in there I would dump the history and temporary internet files too.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
