The IFISHVA site is mostly charter boats reports and advertisements. Yes, they catch fish, but 99% of day-to-day anglers cannot run offshore to fish. There are some good private reports from time to time as well, but not many.
Some people have a wealth of knowledge that comes with experience & many would like to learn from them , sadly as some people age, dementia and other issues that affect their thinking.I'm new to fishing. Been fishing for 4 years now. Still enjoy catching croaker, dogfish, whatever jumps on my hook. Caught a total of 3 Cobia. Maybe a dozen small striper And about the same puppy drum. I enjoy learning and have enjoyed the pictures and tips on this site. I don't usually post because I don't feel like somebody ripping my catch or my question. Doesn't always happen of course but it only takes a couple to ruin it for the many just like everything else in this world. Even if I commented on somebody else's post. If I say something about the huge Cobia somebody caught and call the thing a slob, i certainly don't need somebody like gradymania tearing what I said apart and making me feel like a schmuck. I didn't make any comments on that thread. But it sticks out in my mind that things like that happen on here. Thanks for the people still posting great pictures, reports, and tips on here though. I still enjoy reading people's posts
