The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc. There's been more general and specific fishing techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened here.
I can get hot bite information in a lot of places. In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums. Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places. That's great! Many of us have done the same thing.
Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum. That's what I've always enjoyed the most.
Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.
