      That's what I'm saying.. BUT to be honest I'm not the nicest guy... but I'm not rud as shit though either... it makes me wonder what causes people ...more to be so damn stupid... 😂😂 was always that kid that got into fight with kids for picking on other kids that couldn't stick up for there self.. and still find myself doing that as an adult. lol. DAMN stupid people...
    2. It's amazing how brave and foul some folks are online.

      Every time I post a catch, it never records the waterbody when I post it. Can you fix whatever bug that is please

  3. When do you find Fishidy most useful: before hitting the water and fishing, during, or after?

    1. Jimbo Harwood 0
      Before. lol
    2. Alvin Randolph 0
      I used it extensively on a local body of water when we had a drought last year and the lake bed exposed her many hidden structure and cover...being able to pin point ...more those locations with precision GPS and attaching pictures has proved most valuable now the lake is back at full pool....think I have approximately 500 waypoints!
    3. Robert Coleman 0
      With Chris and Jake, I use ahead of time to plan an attack using the maps and info from fellow followers.
    4. Noah Shapiro 0
      I personally don't use it much pre lake. There are very little fishermen or fisherwomen in Colorado, that have signed up to Fishidy. I use the social media more ...more than the mapping.
    5. never use it during, but before going to a new lake it's great to make a game plan. afterwards its good too, double checking your tactics or whatever info you ...more can get from people while sharing what you learned there.
    6. Jake Joseph 0
      I've had some awesome members help me with info ahead of a few trips and I have the subscription so I definitely use the maps on most of the lakes I frequent ...more both to map out a plan ahead of time and then to double check locations once I'm on the water
    7. scott clark 0
      I use it alot we I'm going to a lake I haven't been much and I use the maps to help figure out where I'm gunna fish

  4. Here's a question for you Fishidy: would you share more catches and spots if you could keep the exact location private?

    Bonus question: Are there times you ...more don't want to share a photo or other details of a catch?

    Thanks in advance! One random response below will be selected and given a free week of premium.

      I'll share everything I can EXCEPT for anything on my home turf, just pics amd baits used for Otisco from this guy

      You can keep secret. Just enter later

      What happened to Fishidy?
    4. fish fisherson 0
      I share catches, locations & lure info in photos. I never mark spots on the maps. I'm all for sharing information to help people out, but I'm not going ...more to do ALL the work for them. :) I've done the "fishing" work to find all the spots where I now can go "catching." I'm all for sharing fishing spots, catching spots I mark on the map in my brain. I share those with people I meet on the water if I feel they are not just looking for a hand out and are respectful of the fishery.
    5. Dean Lyons 0
      I agree with Chris on most of his points. It's bad enough people don't even know how to properly handle the fish they catch. Most of all, I see enough ...more trash around the banks and in the water where I fish, I don't need more people trashing my spots.
    6. Robert Coleman 0
      I think Chris says it all! I haven't posted any spots myself, but mostly because they are private ponds or when I'm in Canada, I don't get cell service ...more to mark the exact spot. If anyone asks that I recognize the name, the info is there's. If anyone comes to town and wants to fish the ponds I have permission on, I'll gladly take them! 👍👍👍👍 to Chris!!!!
    7. Bottom line, if anyone contributing here ever wants more information about any of my posts, just ask, I'll be glad to share! On the other hand I won't usually ...more throw it out there for every mooch on the internet to see haha, too many guys that don't care about the sport and the fisheries lurking around.
    8. fish all my spots, dont me you gonna catch anything lol.
    9. Nick willette 0
      i dont post spots or catches that i think could be possible tournament spots.i do post things here and there to help people on the same lake as me and that leads ...more to others sharing spots with me.
    10. I never answered the bonus question..I don't post EVERYRHING I catch. I fish 3-5 times a week and rarely get skunked(knock wood) ..i usually only post things ...more above average, whether it's one big fish, a lot of fish, rare fish etc... I should post more I guess ..but I never don't post for a "specific" reason. I would like to see Fishidy show a list of members who claim a body of water as "Primary". It would make it easier for members to reach out and ask questions when they want to fish a new place or need help
    11. I get what Christopher is saying, I'm not far removed from NY'istan... Access is extremely limited when all you see are signs that read "State Land ...more KEEP OUT" ..every bit of land and water is locked by the "entity" that thinks THEY own it. And yes small honey holes can and will be decimated in heavily populated areas. I've seen it many times. So I wouldn't share those spots either...for the sake of the species not myself.
    12. john stimson 0
      your willing to share info or pic & spots or not , the info in my area is hard to find everyone is tight lipped on spot to fish around here. bonus ? when all ...more i catch are small fish . I like fishidy it is a fun site, i get a look into what others are using on lakes I will never fish, thats part of the fun.
    13. Think of this (and maybe it isn't a problem for everyone, but is sure is here in NJ)...you post a spot on a river or small lake/pond that has very little access ...more to fish. it's a great spot geographically for river fish to congregate and many many nice fish stack there seasonally. Fisherman who contribute nothing to the fishing community see your post and a bunch of them to to fish it. They have no respect for the fishery and keep they're absolute limit of everything (or more likely, here in NJ, keep EVERYTHING because they know there is a next to no chance they'll get caught) They keep going back, tell all their scumbag friends who do the same thing and they fill their freezers with everything, bass, muskie, whatever (they con't care). Spot ruined. State creel and size limits don't really take into consideration small bodies of water that are going to be decimated (plus like i said way too many people don't even follow the creel and size limits anyway) That's why I don't share specific location details all the time. out of respect for the fisheries and the other anglers following the rules. Anyone that consistently sees any of my posts anywhere knows they can send me a message for details, but it's not going up on the internet for any troll to see.
    14. they internet can and has ruined specific spots here in NJ that's just a fact...highest pop density it's just the way it is. access is very limited in many ...more places here, sometimes a good spot is like gold. You can't trust the internet man, I'll post on a local forum and 1k people will view it and i can name about 40-50 people that contribute to it with any kind of info so that's 900+ people, at least, just mooching information without giving anything back to the site ever. People who truly want the info can message to get it...if they aren't willing to put that little effort in then they don't deserve to have it.
    15. I don't usually "Mark spots" on here but I am forthcoming with the details of where and how , when I post a catch. If anyone asks , I'll gladly ...more share every detail. You kinda have to assume other members will pay it forward. Also, no matter accurate you post a spot , who is gonna just sit on it and fish that spot all day every day! C'mon guys there is a lot more to fishing than "Where" , that's only one tiny piece..share away!
    16. and also btw, i've marked specific spots a few times and they've never came up anyway (still says 'user shared 0 spots' on my profile) not even ...more really sure how that works or why it didn't work.
    17. a lot of times i might be in a spot that was showed to me by someone else personally and in that case don't think it's my place to share all the details ...more publicly. I also don't like sharing details with people who don't contribute back the the site. In other words, if i don't recognize your name or pictures, why should i share details with them? On any fishing site i use i rarely put many details about locations because of this but if anyone ever wants details all they have to do is send a message and if i recognize them as a contributor, I'll give them all the info they want. this is the only fair way imo.

      Did RAGBRAI myself a few years,.... many moons ago (lol), came to the conclusion that it is slow suicide! Too bad about the wind for fishing.☹
    3. Drew Gierach 0
      Ragbrai was an absolute blast! I never made it out on the water due to 15-20mph winds out of the SSE.
    4. Robert Coleman 0
      Thanks Drew! How was RAGBRAI and the fishing at Clear Lake?

  6. Hi Clear Lake! Drew (co-founder) from Fishidy here. I'm traveling through the great state of Iowa for Ragbrai this week and plan on fishing this lake on Tuesday ...more at some point in the day. If you want to toss a line in the water or chat about fishing, Fishidy or life in general than drop me a line. Looking forward to catching some fish!

    1. Drew Gierach 0
      Don, thank you so much for your kind words. I shared them with the team and everyone had smiles from ear to ear. Congratulations on your sobriety and recovery. That ...more is so amazing and I can tell you have the strength to continue on this path.

      Fishing has always been a sanctuary and time of bliss for me as well. There are few things where one can completely unwind and forget about the day to day. Tight lines, Don!

      Hello Drew, just wanted to take some time to thank you for co-founding this website. I have recently gotten back into fishing as my knees have gotten to wrecked ...more to golf. As a recovering alcoholic/addict I find that being alone on the water in my belly boat is just about as serene as it gets. Fishidy is my sanctuary during the week when I can't get on the water. Thank you one and all!! I read almost all of your posts and look at your pictures, keep 'em comin'!
    3. Spencer Welch 0
      I won't be up there Tuesday but I work at Clear Lake Bait and Tackle and have a lot of lake knowledge and fish the lake all the time. You can stop by the shop ...more for an up to date report on the lake. The owner of the shop (Kevan Paul) is also an owner of a guide service so we have great info all the time.
