Have others recieved this email

18 posts in this topic

I recieved an email from a guy named trevor stating that he is over at the "new" (Contact Us Please) fishing site. He says he wants to tell everyone about it and there is a hyperlink to the site. I really don't care about the e-mail (I've been there but FM blows them out of the water), but I am curious as to how he got my e-mail adress. I was wondering if anyone else recieved this e-mail?

I know for a fact that FM has never given away or sold any e-mail addresses... That is not our style.. the only thing I can think of is if you posted your e-mail in any of the posts? Also, some people have thier e-mail in their signatures.. that would be a dead give away as well.

Have you ever posted your e-mail address here before in a post? Or at any other outdoors related forum? Or registered at that site?

They've been known to troll the forums here looking for addresses, and then you get an e-mail. Part of their "guerilla" method of recruiting members.

Your registration with FM is safe, if that is what you are wondering. Nobody can get your address unless you post it online.

EDIT: Geez Deitz. We think alike! smile.gif

I got it as well. I assume he got the email addresses when you post your email to recieve pics of a for sale item. I know I have posted mine recently to have someone send me pics of a truck.

I have recieved those e-mails in the past only after I posted my e-mail address. I think the others are right, they troll looking for e-mail address's. You should have read the e-mail I sent him after I looked at their site. shocked.gif

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
