It seems strange knowing, after 16 years of doing this site, this is the last post I will ever make here. This site had become a big part of my life and I have enjoyed doing it. I appreciate all of you that visited and sent me emails and posted comments.
Life goes on. My new site at http://fishing-about.com will take time to develop - after all, this one didn't just happen over night. But I will be putting up information daily and working to figure out the new system and keep up to date information there.
Till we meet again elsewhere, Gone Fishing!

Over 16 years ago I saw a small note in the newspaper looking for writers for the web. At that time I had never even been on the web but I applied and got this site. Over the past 16 years I enjoyed working on it and met some great people, and made some good friends. But last week I was fired.
I decided to start my own site on fishing where I will have the freedom to do what I think fishermen want to see. It is in its very early stages right now but I plan on working hard on it over the next few weeks. I hope you will visit me there. I bought the url fishing-about.com - I know, old habits die hard. But if you go there, be sure to use the (-)!
Thank all of you for visiting my site, commenting on the blogs and emailing me. I won't have access to my email after Sunday but you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to seeing you and hearing from you.

I love fishing Lake Martin in Alabama and all three Griffin bass clubs go over there every October for a big weekend tournament. We have a lot of fun and usually catch a bunch of bass. My experiences a few years ago might give you some ideas on how to catch bass there and even on your home lake.

PETA, the animal rights group, not People Eating Tasty Animals, wants to ban fishing. They say hooking a fish is cruel and want kids taught not to go fishing. Their claim that hooking a fish is like hooking a dog with a fish hook is silly and not factual, but being silly and ignoring facts never slowed those folks down!
