Why is it that there are so few actual fishing reports on Lake link

I went to Oconto today.  We didn't catch any small fish.  Maybe 15 total but 5 were over 28".  And other boats around us were also catching fish.  One boat landed a 34" brown trout.  Not a single report.  I do plan to post a report on that thread, but let's hear your thoughts on whats the problem with reporting.

Because fishermen believe that finding and catching fish is like knowing the location of a hidden treasure. If I tell you where the fish are, then you'll catch them and there won't be any left for me...

Jumbee, always watched Virgil Ward back in the day . Always got a kick out of the lure in the aquarium. The retrieve was always the same, reel in, let it drop, repeat. The take would usually come on the drop.

Hero’s reports are the best. He’s to the point and hilarious too. William Heim is another guy that gives great reports. These guys have put in the time and don’t mind sharing any information to help others.

The non reports are pointless and are nothing more than self gratification for the person posting. If I’m going to post something it’s going to be to help others, not pat myself on the back.

Csection..........you are correct.  All one needs to post is

info like Hero posts on Lake Delevan.

1.) Time fished

2.) Depth fished

3.) Presentation used

4.) Baits used and type of rig

5.) Results

Why is this so difficult??  If you are afraid of giving away your location, don't post a pic at the location.  Do it somewhere else. I think numbers 2,3 and 4 would be helpful to most fishermen. C'mon guys, what's so difficult about this??

Seen it too many times when some guy posts a detailed fishing report and the next day there are all kinds of people you've never seen before, racing around a spot that's normally pretty quiet. And all too often they leave all kinds of garbage behind.

No thanks. I work hard to find good spots, I'm not gonna toast them by posting details for the whole world to see.

Toughontrout - It would be like me posting on any lake “I fish for Musky from a boat”.

It’s not a report it’s a statement, thus not deserving of any kind of acknowledgment.

Toughontrout-the fact that you and your son like to fish for panfish isn’t a report, it’s a statement. Why would anybody comment on that?

In my opinion there are 2 main reasons for so few fishing reports. 1. Fishermen do not want the news to get out when a bite is good. 2. People are always critical of posts and it’s not worth the drama.

Loved the Virgil Ward theme song!!  Also believe he gave the lure presentation demonstration in an aquarium at the end of every show and may have been the guy that gave water conditions as "Clear to murky to muddy" on the show.
