    Look the guy didn't quite understand why their was so few reports. He thought people were afraid to post a report for fear of burning their favorite lake! (he said that in his opening remarks) I'll ask you, why do you think the place isn't was it once was! (I don't think it is because people stop fishing)

    As for me messing up another thread! Really????? This thread now has a life of it's own! If I didn't give my 4 cents, this thread would have gone no where! (my opinion) However, to test my theory because this question comes up a few times every year. Next time it does in another form, "I won't say Boo and let's see where it goes!"

    Remember that one gentleman who’d always post reports. I think his name was troutonly or something. Anyhow, despite his lack of writing skills (he‘d ,,,,,,,,,, write ,,,,,,,,,, like,,,,,,,this,,,,,,,,,,), his reports were always fun to read.

    And, to be sure, beyond fishing reports, FNN is the best place online to get fishing insights and expertise from anglers who’ve been there and done that.

    More members should post reports here on FNN, rather than just posting videos online. Even a couple of sentences will suffice; they don’t have to be novels, and no one’s here to criticize anyone’s writing.

    Tight lines ya’ll.
    If you like TO reports, he still post's them on Southern CA Sportfishing club. That's a Facebook forum but it's open to the public. (I read one of TO reports just a couple of day's ago) Ironically that other website is more of a Salt Water Forum.

    Ronald Reagan right before his election asked 1 simple question. Are you better off then, 4 years ago then you are today?

    If conservatives are too busy working, they must have a magic wand that prevents them from being laid off like millions of other Americans these past few months. Statements like that just seem more more idiocy coming from the right to me.

    Interesting. That was like more than a decade ago, but definitely used to look forward to TO’s FNN reports. Might check it out. Thanks.

    A lot of political nonsense in this thread...

    ... but, to answer the original question. Online forums are slowly going extinct, so much of the fishing reports have moved to Facebook groups, sadly. I much prefer the forum, much easier to search/use, but that's just how things are at the moment.

    Their is the hybrid Forum. (Open fishing Forums on Facebook) Their pretty neat and I'm on 6 of them, but their kind of specialized. I Love the Crappie one, it's 90% about lake Isabelle. We are getting organized to make Izzy one of our home lakes!

Today was disappointing, although typical lately. Four reports in the So Cal Freshwater forum one new one but all the rest were responses to posts made 8/16, 8/27, and 8/29 and NOTHING new on the Saltwater side. Doesn't anyone fish anymore or is everyone so paranoid that they think they'll burn "their hot spot" if they post they caught a couple of two-pound bass at Pymirid Lake (without zeroing in on the actual spot) or that they got a couple of dink dorado from under a kelp paddy 40 miles out in the Pacific somewhere? You can't tell me out of nearly 30,000 members only one guy has gone fishing in the last week.
    I certainly have. For someone who used to fish 30+ times a year I don't think I've made more than 5 trips over the last 3 years.


    In spring of 2018 I started to not feel well. Throat swollen and difficulty breathing. At first I thought it was just allergies because we were having a bad pollen season but it kept going so went to my Dr. She said I have an infection, gave me antibiotics and sent me home. This went on for about 2 months back and forth to the Dr. and numerous antibiotics. Finally ended up seeing a specialist and they determined I have Grave's Disease which is an immune disease that attacks the thyroid. So they tried medications at first but that wasn't effective, finally ended up going through radiation treatment in spring 2019.


    The treatment worked, started recovering, by late May I was ready to rock and roll, start fishing again! I made one trip to Catalina and caught some yellowtail. Then in early June my mom, almost 80, slipped and fell. Hit her head pretty bad and ended up in the hospital. She hung on for 2.5 months but ended up passing from complications. Lots of stuff to do after her passing so no time for fishing the rest of 2019.


    And so here we are in 2020 and because of my graves disease I am high-risk for covid and have to be super careful. No getting together and fishing with friends like the old days. I could still go with my GF though since we live together and while getting the boat ready for a trip last May I ended up tweeking my back lifting some gas cans.


    So back to the DR I went. Specialists, x-rays, MRI, and determined I need surgery to correct the problem. Had surgery on July 21st and still recovering at present. I'm hopeful that I'll be able to get out fishing again but probably not before this season ends.


    A good friend once told me that health is wealth. You can have all the money in the world but if you're not healthy then it's worthless because you can't enjoy spending it. Here's to good health to all who still read this site. With any luck I will start posting reports again in 2021.

    I have my own business, and my wife is a teacher that has been back to work for 4 months. When you work for others you get laid off. Don't hate.
