OK, here we go.

ALL of us, everyone of us, has furthered our knowledge of flatheading, directly due to the USCA being in existence. We ALL have learned so much about different tactics, received tons of advice on gear, had get togethers, met great friends, from this very website. You think about all the spots you have learned from everyone on here, and this site has made it all possible, and many of us would be fishing blindly, so to speak, without the USCA. We spend mucho amounts of money on gear, gas, bait, terminal tackle, rods, reels etc. None of this would have been possible without the USCA.

My personal conviction is I think that getting information, then not supporting the very foundation that has helped us catch our PBs, is information robbery. With all the money we spend on gear, we should be able to ATLEAST be able to donate ten stinking dollars for memberships, I think $40 is about perfect. Think about your PB's, think about your friends you have met, the get togethers, think about all the knowledge you have gained, is it worth at least ten bucks?


We are all strait up people, so it is time to get honest. I hear, and personally think, it is wrong for non-members (lurkers) to leach off information, then take off and never chat, or never say thank you to anyone. That pisses us all off, but is it any different for us to get all this information, advice, friends, and not support the Organization that made it all possible?

No, I do not know the owner of the USCA, but what I do know is, that this website costs money and tons of time to run. It is seriously time to step it up. If you are in financial hardship, let me know, we will get a special donation for you, and there are several people who will kick in money to get your star(s). So I ask us all, Self-evaluate, and think where you would be, how many less friends would you have, how many fish would you have not caught, and how much less about gear you would know about, if the USCA was never around to begin with?!?!?!?!

Mine only took about 15 minutes. But I think it's when the webmaster or whoever sees the donation and then puts up the stars. So I don't think it's automatic right after donation, but I could be wrong, I have been before

GUEST, If you join the group this year, I assure you, you will see the value and perhaps become a star member. I hate seeing sometimes 4 members and 6 guests on the site. Do we have to use codes to keep proper info for members only! Join up!
