Please confirm that when my message box gets full it will

1) correct
2) I do not believe it will automatically delete your oldest message. It will just stay that way until you delete them.

Posting Policies Frequently Asked Questions

I am a Charter Captain, Guide, or Tackle Shop Owner can I post fishing reports?

Yes, our users love to have fishing reports from professional Charter Captains, Guides and/or Tackle Shops and it can be a great way to gain exposure for your business. However, we have the following guidelines:

1) The fishing report MUST be useful to other members of the message board. This means that a user can read the report and get useful information about the general area, tide(s) stages, general method (lures, bait etc), and conditions that will help them be able to better catch and locate fish after reading the report.

2) If you are just posting to gain exposure for you business and post vague information and/or simply saying your clients caught X number of big fish and then post pictures, your reports will be removed.

We understand that as a Charter Captain, Guide or Tackle Shop you will generally receive discounts on fishing equipment, including boats, and fishing tackle and may even be sponsored. We also understand that part of the deal in sponsors giving you the discounts and/or free products is that you will give them exposure. We expect you to use your best judgment when giving a report. Of course if you have a hot lure that is catching fish, Tidal Fish angler want to know about it, but there is a line between “informing” and “advertising” and we expect you to keep to the “informing” side of things.

If you have a Commercial Subscription you may, as this level of subscription permits, have your contact information, a link to your site or a banner in your signature so Tidal Fish members can contact you. If you do not have a Commercial Subscription you still may post fishing reports, however you may only sign your name such as “Captain Brandon” at the end of your post and may not have any links, active or not, phone numbers or like information in your post.

May I include pictures with my report?

Yes, you may include pictures with your report following our guidelines:

1) Pictures may not contain any added text, such as a url, on the photo.

2) You may give credit to the photographer; the photographer’s name should be located in the lower right or lower left hand corner of the photo and the text be no larger then 10 pt font at 72dpi resolution.

3) The pictures may not be offensive. We understand that with catching fish, such as Tuna, there will be blood involved, but please use your best judgment and not post excessively bloody pictures. We all have a responsibility to project a responsible fishing image to those that might view the site and not necessarily be anglers or may be new to the sport.
