Removal of Forum Threads

I have removed 2 forums from the site, both of them are turning into something I don't wish to invite on this site and the community. You may call Mr overkill moderator if you want, but this site is about fishing and enjoying those moments and sharing the experience and maybe helping out others if possible and if you feel like it. If you wish to continue the discussion, you know the address of the other sites which allow it.

Cheers,

Doing a great job Adam.

This is what people want to hear, and this is why your membership is expanding.

Finally a moderator who cares about his forum and sets a example for the rest.

All good

Wed, 2006-12-06 12:10

Whilst I was a little undecisive as to the action to take I think that a diversity of opinions were shared and most of us gleamed enough out of the original topic to make up our own minds as to internet tackle shopping vs the local store, its publicity and where you buy from.

I like a spirited discussion as much as the next bloke, but my interest is in making this site as enjoyable as possible for others and I think that thread was headed down the garden path to nowhere.

Anyway, now back to the important stuff, FISHING. :)

I think you have a bloody good handle on this moderating business Adam. Lets get back to fishing for fish rather than fishing for a fight.

Wed, 2006-12-06 16:58

You wouldn't believe how hard this moderating business is, with threats of being sued over some of the silliest stuff (you wouldn't believe!), to dealing with fish handling techniques, online stores, fishing politics/conservation - environment and so many more.

You'd think going fishing would be easy! Anyway, back to more important things in my mind. The fishwrecked invitational this Saturday, not looking the best for conditions at this stage, cmon Mr Weatherman, give us a good forecast!!!

Wed, 2006-12-06 17:27

Well the weatherman got this morning quite wrong, it was forecasted for s.e 10-15, it was directly east at about 5 knots. Was almost enough to scare us off going, guess you really just have to get up and check it for yourself and then determine if its a goer or not.

" done heaps up north but theres proof anyone can catch fish up there."

Not entirely true, even we sometimes come home empty handed... it's just not meant to be on occasions. With alot of the quality metro fish I've seen posted on FW of late I could almost say the same about down there ;)

Penn 320

Wed, 2006-12-06 19:36

Its a level wind, but that's not a problem with the size fish we catch here in Perth. Maybe a bit of a nono with Sambo's as the added pressure on the levelwind guide could be enough to bust you off.

The Penn 320 is lighter than the 330 that you see on most combo's in the shops so you can fish with it all day and not get tired.

Don;t get the 320 GTO's as they look a bit less hardy (Just my opinion and I am definately not a tackle rat). I would however take more qualifying advice from Ryan, Honsu or Shizz as they would be comparing and contrasting these sorts of reels every day for their customers and may well have a far better option that I am not aware of.

As for luring the wrasse away, can you do the same with Scorpion Cod? If so you can be my permanent deckie. (Hehe)

Cheers
