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

      Cook, MN facebook page has a picture and info on it.  I don't know how to post a link, but here's the post-minus the photo.   The combination of record mild temperatures in late February and more seasonable temperatures in early March, has prompted dramatic ice movement on Lake Vermilion.... The south shore of Birch Point, which faces Big Bay, has seen some of the most extensive damage, as the ice has twisted lift docks, damaged boat houses, downed trees, and rearranged sizeable chunks of shoreline. Only a handful of docks along the heavily-developed lakeshore have so far escaped damage from the ice. Many docks have been damaged beyond repair. The pressure of expanding ice is typically relieved out in the lake, where large pressure ridges often form. But those ridges didn’t form as usual this year, and that left the shorelines vulnerable to the immense power of expanding ice. Lake property owners are likely to be shocked when they arrive back at their cabins and lake homes later this year. And the cost of repairs could be especially painful since, in many cases, the damage is likely not covered by insurance. “It will depend on their individual policies,” said Donna Mosher, with the Tower-Soudan Agency, which serves many Lake Vermilion property owners. She said standard insurance policies typically don’t cover ice movement, which can be a frequent source of property damage in areas where thick ice builds up in winter. Many property owners on Vermilion and other larger area lakes have turned to lift-out docks to minimize their risk of damage, but this year’s unusual conditions are leaving many of those docks damaged or destroyed as well. Some property owners do obtain insurance that includes a specific schedule or rider to cover more expensive docks, according to Mosher, but that’s usually the exception rather than the rule. “I’ve had to tell people ‘no’ already,” said Mosher. “It’s unfortunate.”

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod
