LIVE BAIT FORUM ???

7 posts in this topic

How about a LIVE BAIT FORUM? It could have stickeys at the top for the various live bait categories like minnows, worms and larva. I am thinking this would be more of a resource on live bait with topics such as how to keep minnows overnight or the various ways of rigging live bait. What fish are biting on and that sort of thing would remain in the discussion and species forums. WHAT DO YOU THINK???

I think it'd be a nice idea. Geared towards catching/keeping/caring for/rigging live bait

Most all of those questions get answered in the Open Water forum now.

One can use the Contact Us button at the bottom of the page for these type questions.

I tend to agree with Tom on this. You don't want to get overboard with too many forums. I think just using the open water or ic fishing forums work well now.

I see a place for it in the "open water forms" next to shore fishing and fly fishing. As one of the other replies said, it would be a resource forum rather than a "what's working now" sort of thing. Geared for catching and caring for live bait and of course tips on rigging.

For instance, I don't care for using night crawlers as sunfish bait and they are the only worms available in the local bait shops. So, I keep a "worm farm" every year. It's just an area that I feed them and keep moist, but it keeps me in "garden worms" all summer. On the other hand I can see that some of the advertisers would see this as competition and they pay the bills so I understand that.

Is there really such a thing as too many forums? lol, we can all use more information in an organized way. I'm not saying I'd use a Live bait forum cause its not my thing, but its super easy with this style of forum to add sub forums that show up at the top. I think its a great idea. Good suggestion!
