I Just don't buy that people cant figure out how to use the website. It's no different than any other forum.  Especially seeing that some of the offenders have been registered for years.   And as far as those asking for information paying it forward so to speak, it just doesn't happen. They say 10% of the fishermen catch 90% of the fish, I would say the same percentages are true here on LL regarding sharing information.  The majority of those people fishing for information will never be heard from again.  People are lazy and selfish. And I'm no different.

Your complaint about wading through millions upon millions of complaint posts doesn't hold water either.  The admins will delete all this in the morning haha.  What you are wading through are all the "spoon feed me now or I'm going to tell mommy on you" posts.

Just imagine what our grandfathers had to do to get an "ice report"? They walked to the lake 10 mile up hill each way in the snow and cold with an ax and checked it themselves.   I for one would love to get back to those ways, I think It'd do the youngin's some good.

I honestly don't get why people are getting an attitude here.  New people that don't understand how the website works, or don't know how to find the  fishing reports ask a question.  Then a few people here blow up at them.  

What are the odds those people come back here and share their information?  Have you ever thought about that?  

Instead of berating everyone for asking a question, maybe just keep it to your yourself so the rest of us don't have to sort through 50 posts of complaints just to find the latest report.

I too find it amazing that there is soooo much information at ones mouse button on this an other sites. Anytime I fish any new body of water, I go back YEARS on LL (specifically for the posted months I will be fishing). Yes things change over the years but not that much that the info still isn't relevant and helpful...This site and others are a wealth of information from the past. If I see a post (past/present) of where i'm headed, I will PM that person and politely ask them pertinent questions but not for their honey hole if you will. Most are very receptive. It just never ceases to amaze me when someone posts a SFQ (silly flipping question) that was just answered 5 posts prior.....spoonfed is an appropriate term). I realize ice conditions change, and people don't want to make the haul for nothing...but when there is a web camera that has been posted dozens of times and you can see where they are fishing/safe when you are driving up the next day....well again...SFQ. 

Maybe it's the new "instant" world - Instagram, snapchat, FB, all are expecting instant response and info without the research or the legwork.

So, let me get this straight, You're ripping me for not having anything better to do with my time other than to give people the tools to find information on there own with strong sarcastic overtones,  you respond with a longer, more sarcastic post? Can't you find anything better to do with your time? Because I can't.

Who ever said anything about me being a great fisherman? I sure didn't. But if you want my tip of the day, here you go.

Getting away from the crowd is key. That's one of my keys to success.

By telling someone to read the posts I'm giving them far more information than they know.  This thread is loaded with good, relevant tips and tricks. I'm just so tired of all those people who need to be spoon fed all the information they think they need to have a shot at these "salmon".

I'm already booked for this weekend and next weekend (if we can even get out). Then I'm heading to Florida for the week.   I'm going to try to get out Friday if you want to role with me then.  Just make sure to bring lot's of Cheetos, Trolli brand sour gummy worms and Swedish fish.  They've been the hot bait of late. I buy them at the Walgreens on Brady and Farwell. But seriously, I'm going Friday if  you, or anyone else wants to join (assuming we can get on).

Shoot me a text if you're interested: My name is Zach, 262-227-3309

Hey basswhole I wanted to specifically ask u what the ice conditions are out there? I'm coming this weekend and wondering what your thoughts are on ice conditions here this weekend. What are the exact lures and bait u use in here to catch all those salmon u catch. Also where exactly do u purchase these baits and lures for the salmon. Since you're the best fisherman around and such a nice guy can I come fishing with u this weekend so I can learn to catch these salmon u catch here.  Again, did I ask u about ice conditions I forgot.  Oh and by the way who cares what people ask on here. Do U really have nothing better to do with your time other than criticize everyone else's posts? Does it really bother u that much? If u don't like it don't respond it's that simple. U complain about people's posts well now I'm complaining about your posts. How about a report instead of whining, or since you're such a great fisherman, how about a tip of the day. 

P.s. How's the ice down here?

Just taking an informal poll. What takes less effort?

1) Posting a question of which the answer is the 2nd from the top.

2) Reading the darn post.

3) Taking informal polls.

1) Ignoring a request for info.

2) Posting an answer to the request.

3) Posting a snarky response to the request.
