Facebook groups have killed the old school forum websites. It's one stop shopping for everything you want.

true...between FB groups and instgram, forums have slowed a ton. The Hull Truth and Microskiff are still pretty active

If you're on FB, then I suggest finding a group to join who fishes the same water you fish.

Can't blame FB for what has happened here. Look at the topics being posted in the last couple of years and you'll see the answer. I knew this was coming. If it's not people trying to irritate members with outrageous topics, now it's turned to religious postings-NOT what this place was intended for. I blame the owner/admin or whoever, for being-for the most part...invisible. JMHO. It's a shame, this was a great little place to visit.

It totally has to do with it. No one goes to specific websites to get fishing reports anymore when it's all over Facebook. Which everyone looks at constantly. No reports here = no participation from members. All that's left is people posting random topics. Before Facebook groups was created there were 20-30 new posts per day. Things change so change with them or be left behind.

If the "religious postings" offend you don't click on them. He posted them in the general discussion section.

I've been here since 2011, and I recall there's usually a dip in postings in the winter.

But those unhappy with the amount and quality of the content should work toward improvement by proving more hunting and fishing content themselves. Relative to the number of times you've been fishing in the past couple years, how many fishing reports have you posted? Hunting reports? Contributions to the fishing and hunting questions of others? Don't just be a taker - benefiting from the contributions of others. Be a giver and try and provide more useful help and advice.

Sure, I occasionally have a post that is more political or faith based in scope. But if you do a search and look at all my contributions, I have a lot of posts relating to fishing and hunting, and I work hard to provide accurate and actionable information.

Improvement of the site depends more on the readership providing accurate and actionable information than it does on complaining or what kinds of posts appear in the more general discussion.

I fish more than most folks. hunt a lot too. spend years learning my way around the outside reefs of marsh island and can run prettymuch anywhere I want to in the lake and basin. not a brag, just that's what happens when you've spend nearly 50 years hunting/fishing. I am constantly amazed at the people on here that give away spots and post pics and name lakes. these folks aren't what I consider fishermen. they are people with small penis's that want to feel like they are somebody. all they are doing is ruining spots for everybody. eventually these folks will ruin most or all of their spots, but be too stupid to realize they were the cause of it. that's why I hate these forums. well, that and the Jesusfreaks. lol

just like the preacher said, if u don't like what i'm posting, don't read it.

Sad to see the traffic die down like it has. I'm open to suggestions but Facebook and instagram are hard to beat.

Facebook just makes it so easy. And you get almost immediate answers to your questions. No walking through hoops to post a pic. Etc. A group specific to the southwest would be great. They may already be one but I never searched.
