Andy, the reason I personally care so much is that I put hours and hours into looking at google earth then even more countless hours into trial and error and finding these fish. Beach areas and passes are obvious places to fish, a lot of people are going to fish there regardless. But areas that hold baby tarpon, or backwater creeks where u can sight fish big snook are different stories. Blast the beach where u fish all u want lol, jetties are areas with plentiful fish and everyone knows about without having to know a lot about fishing. I think it's awesome when people put in the work and find great spots, that's why I don't want people to ruin it for themselves or the fish (or me haha). People need to put in some work and find some fish for themself.
Phil - why put in work when u can post on Tampa bay fishing club and just ask where? Why hide spots when u can brag about it. The problem is people taught me fishing etiquette and how to fish, etc. now u don't learn technique u just ask where and what bait to use. It's disgusting. U put those people in a new area and they'd have no clue how to fish it. Anyways I'm tired of ranting. Maybe I'll check back into TOF in another 6months haha.
