Hey guys, I enjoy posting and reading the forum but it amazes me that even though most of the reports get hundreds of views, there are typically only a few people consistently posting reports. Maybe we can put together a monthly derby for length or weight on a bass to get people to post more reports? Winner gets a BPS gift card or lure or something each month. Idk if anyone cares, but I'm feeling less and less motivated to post a report these days.. only to have a bunch of people lurk it and 3 +/- people reply to it (the same people posting mentioned above). I was on a surf fishing forum when I lived on the west coast and they did monthly derbies for various surf species, it definitely motivated more people to post reports (they actually had a section specifically for it).

Cool to see all the replies coming in, I'd like to play devils advocate around the argument about keeping a fishing spot a secret, I don't see it as a strong argument to not post a report for various reasons - 1. Fishing spots/bodies of water change regularly, depending on a million and one variables, you know the old saying don't go based on yesterday's report, make your own. 2. Just because you know where someone caught a/some fish doesn't mean it's easy to go poach it, you still have to get the bite and land it yourself. 3. In the tech era we live in, its easier than ever to block out location markers in the picture of your catch, if you really don't want someone to see exactly where you caught it. 4. Regardless of whether you're posting a report about that body of water, someone else is, there are tons of forums, fishing magazines/articles/services, instagram etc etc etc. Anyways it's cool to see regulars and not-so-regulars chiming in on this, I look forward to seeing unread-fresh reports every time I hop onto the forum, not even because I want the tea on the latest hot bite but because I like to live vicariously through other people enjoying what I enjoy, would be neat to see more people participating in it.
