I know this is a very old post - tough, because...

Oh my god - I've said before and people in other states don't believe me.

After growing up (and fishing, though it doesn't matter) in CT through the 60's, 70's and early 80's, I moved South - living in SC and TN and KY.

Finally, after 25 years, I was finally able to move back to my beloved CT and what do I find? The meanest, rudest, most self-righteous, self-centered people on God's (or, the gods, if it suits you) green earth.

Sure, the NYTimes has written articles about it. Sure, I've met many people from CIGNA in Chattanooga who tried to make the move to Bloomfield - and were scared back. But - I now have 5-years of first-hand knowledge that most CT folk are just mean. If you feel that I mean you - you're probably right.

A three-page thread with two or three comments about fishing and the rest from CT fisherman concerned that someone will be standing on their rock one day. As if there are too many people participating in this sport.

Do you have any idea how many fewer people fish now? Sure, that might benefit you - but what about your sport?

Which reminds me - I forgot selfish.

There - now I feel right at home. Where's that flamethrower emoticon???

Hey jon006 i want to thank you for passing on the knowledge to us rookies. I don't live in the CT area, i live in the hudson valley, NY area but i go through every single thread on this website everyday trying to gain knowledge about this amazing sport. Last season was my first season after living in the hudson valley for 24+ years and not knowing how amazing striper fishing is. I think bruce lee said it best when he said, "Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend". Basically, you can learn from any one or anything and the moment you think you know everything is the moment life humbles you forcefully. I can't seem to pm message you jon006 but i would greatly appreciate any tips or advice on how to read the water, winds, tides, location scouting , bait tips or anything that can help me improve this season.

Jon006 was banned from this forum for ignoring forum rules, fighting with other members, doing illegal drugs at an event, and just being a general douchebag. Last I heard of him he had gotten the crap beat out of him after he let his road rage get out of control.

One thing is clear. Where ever you go, whatever you do in life, there are rules that must be followed for the greater good of the community. When one chooses to not abide by those rules, there are consquences.

Most of the guys who posted in this thread years ago are no longer a part of this forum community. This forum has always been about helping out the new guys and providing a place where they can ask questions and get answers that will help them in their pursuit of our stripey friends. There are rules in place here that must be followed in doing so.

Please note that NO ONE in charge here has EVER said that folks should never help out newbies by giving them specific information with regard to fishing spots, techniques, etc. All we have ever asked for is that if you choose to share location specific information with someone you feel is trustworthy, that you do so through a PM instead of posting it on the public forum. Many thousands of people visit this forum and read these posts and not all of them are the kind of people that you want showing up at your favorite fishing hole. To provide detailed directions and location specific instructions in a public forum is asking for trouble. You have tools at your fingertips (Private Messages), that allow you to share this sort of information with those you want to help without violating this forum policy. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Carry on. :icon_salute2:
