I wonder how that is going to work out for them? I see about 20 posts in there so far. Does anyone know when they started this? Looks like the first post was on 3/17. More importantly, do you think the mods there will actually relax a bit on the posting rules? I doubt it. Now you gotta pay for being harassed crazy smiley crazy smiley confused smiley crazy smiley crazy smiley ooo smiley ooo smiley

Yep... I get "Access Denied" whenever I try to look around. Pretty cool... now you are going to have to pay to get the good stuff over there. I bet you see some fallout over this marketing move.

They had a few hours yesterday where you could read some stuff.

Currently its $2.95 per month but Rick (the owner of the site) posted that the price will likely go up for new subscribers in the future.

I don't see it working. Some guides and a staff/moderators over there will likely post good reports there but who is going to pay to see them? You can get good reports on a number of free sites including MyFishingPals.

Personally I think its one step closer to them making the entire site a subscription site. Just my opinion, no facts to back it up.

Yeah... I am going to be doing this too. I was thinking more like $25 bucks a month. I need the money to pay for the edumication I got. Line up folks, and pony up!

Webdude, maybe we can make a deal. I'll give you a jar of hand dug worms and an old cork bobber.

What do you say?

There's too many forums with great free info.

If they charge do I get my cut for posting current lake fishing info then?

Yeah thats kind of my problem with it.

Charging someone to share their knowledge and information and then turn around and charge another person to read it.

These forums only go as far as the users take them so i don't feel its right to charge people after they've helped make it what it is.
