It would never work. For each participant, there are 500 lurkers than only take info and never share theirs. There are also members here, like Bossman1, that have cleaned ponds out of bass and crappies that others have shared with them. Yes, some sickos eat bass out of neighborhood and factory ponds. It's so so hard to find a pond with big crappies and they get emptied so fast once the word gets out.

Lastly, most of these ponds are illegal to fish and most wouldn't self-incriminate themselves online.

For one, if you're not a spammer then you don't need to post the same damn thing on every thread here.

For two, there are already apps out there that do that. No sense beating a dead horse.

If you want let's start with your favorite unknown honey hole as a test of the system.

Posting pictures of bass and where and how you caught them is unheard of. What do you think this is some kind of fishing forum or something :sarcasm:
Nature and shit.

Just remove the B from bass and it makes more sense!

Haha thanks for the feedback some harsh and some not. Seems like it’s more for my younger generation who are eager to share and learn and catch and release for bass especially. No need for the harsh comments just looking for some feedback so it would be great if you would respect ambition. Adios idiots!

Funny you mention Bossman. I posted some pics of some bass I caught ice fishing a number of years ago. That guy pestered the hell out of me through PMs asking me where I was fishing. He wouldn’t take no for an answer. I never told him and I still go there.

In terms of the OP, I would definitely join the site.

I was told first hand by a friend who told Bossman of his personal find of a pond that held great big crappies. B-man came with his float tube and fish baskets and wiped out the crappie population. When he was done, he came back and started filling the baskets with the bass. Some might think that this particular poacher might be mad at me for posting this, but if he's reading this from his jail cell, he's got a big grin watching RonG talking about all the fish he caught.
