I'm wondering how often you guys report a fishing trip. as for me, these days I hardly feel like I'd fished until I've made a dutiful entry in my states forum. Yep, I admit almost every time I get skunked... but I don't really see all that many of those kinds of post, and wonder only report good fishing trips, or perhaps only the really good anglers post each fishing trips; you know the ones that bring home almost a monster every time they come out. I was asked during one of my last postings by my wife, why I bother... she asks = do you really think anyone cares that this is the fourth skunked fishing trip? interesting question. Personally, I care about those that I have got to know and look forward to encouraging them and giving them what tips I can, even if they do skunk. But I don't know. Do you view the fishing reports as a way to keep in touch with BOC friends or more as being awed by the monstrous catfish? or are you more interested in gaining tips and hints from anglers clearly better than yourself? Do you find yourself addicted to the forum to welcome the chance to post and talk to your boc friends (even if it is to report a post) OR is it just too much time commitment and TOO embarassing that you spent ANOTHER 8 hours without a fish?
