Does the 6OG forum have too many topics causing folks to get lost and confused?

Here is one for the recipe category,  make a double strength powdered milk to soak fillets in, then use Old Bay an cornmeal, then fry in peanut oil. Bacon grease is too heavy, and smokes.

Here's 3 that should go away; Guide section. Hasn't been any action since created. Other Fishing related discussion,last post 12/28/16. Ask the Warden. no activity from the wardens. Basically if lack of activity then why have it.

Maybe, but it is way better than the original site when a person is trying to find something specific. But for it to work, folks have to use it, especially when posting and not be so lazy as to just post crap anywhere.

Don't forget to use the "Search" feature as well

I always just go to MOST RECENT, no reason to go anywhere else when browsing. 

ASK the Warden has to go.
None of the wardens come here anymore. Maybe SOG should ask for $300 binoculars we bought Dale or the VHF radio we bought the Jay Harvey back.

Other topics can stay, they don't cost anything and are useful even if they only get used 1 time a year.

I'd suggest we move the "latest fishing reports" topic to the top of the page.  Currently when you pull up the site you have to scroll down through all the maps to find the fishing reports.  

I agree with Bandit on the deletions.  I don't see that removing the game warden topic would be a big issue since it is no longer used. 

All in all I think the site is great.  I'm sure it takes consistent upkeep and maintenance.  

Great appreciation for Joe and all others who keep this going for all of us to enjoy!

Thanks for the comments.  I deleted the Warden Section and moved the Fishing reports around.

I can delete the guide section I guess.

The reason I added it was because the guides had quit posting on the 6OG anyway.

James Allen was the last to go.

The guides post real time on FaceBook.  My thought was to make it convenient for the 6OG folks to come to the 6OG site and find all they wanted.

I made a 6OG Face Book page but it gets hardly any comments or additions to it.

So......I'll delete the guide section......

I exist to serve.  [smile]  [smile]

Hi Ax, It's up to you to fine tune things, but you could be fishing, instead of fixing something that's not broke.

It is much appreciated Chris.

One of the things that really saddened Ron was that so many guides got their "start" through the 6OG web site and then "disappeared".

Til the day he died we often talked about that.  I don't think he could ever understand that.

Truthfully, I couldn't either.

But that's just me.

Chris we appreciate your participation.  I think you are the only guide left who is active.  [smile]

I like that!!  I hope to get out later.  I'm working on a $130 lure order today.  It's not windy in my shop unless I pass gas.  [smile]

I know about ron not appreciating that very much but I did not get my start here. I have actually have been going since 1994. I have met some great people on this forum over the years.The reason I post is I'm trying to help keep this thing alive.

My take on the topic for what it's worth. This form was started to help everyday fishermen go out and catch a few fish. To share information to help folks have a successful day on the water. In order for a fishing report to be useful it needs to contain useful information: where were you catching, what were you using (lure type-bait) presentation, how deep, when- time of day and so forth. Texoma is a big lake so just saying I launched at Highport and used a slab and caught fish is not a useful report. This is the kind of report you get if a guide post on here. A good example of a informative report would be Axman's and a few other guys that put useful details in the post. I know the argument from the guides, well if I put the locations I'm catching everyone will be there the next day. My take is we can spot a guide boat a half a mile away so we already know where your fishing so if your posting a report say where your catching fish. That really applies to anyone giving a report not just guides. Before you jump on my back, I have nothing against any of the guides, their great fishermen and know the lake better than most of us ever will. I guess what I'm trying to say is if we want this form to be great and do what it was intended to do, help folks catch stripers then we all need to post good informative reports. Otherwise it's just a place to glance at once in awhile.

Thanks JoeSlab.  Right on.

What I'd like to stress is that every day is not a "catching" day on the lake....but post your experience anyway.

It might help others change locations or tactics if they read what didn't work.  [smile]

Most of the time what I do doesn't work.  [smile]

If people want guaranteed fish, they should take their fishing pole to Albertsons.

My take on posting a report is that I dont need to know the location. I appreciate knowing the conditions. If you tell me you caught them with coho's on wind blown points, I dont need to know you were fishing around Lakeside. I am not going to go that far north. I will hit wind blown points on the side of the lake that I fish.  Love this site and all the friends made and info learned! Hope to make it out there soon!

Very true Larry. Like Axman' said post a report even if you got your butt handed to you. No shame in fishing hard and not catching much. I've had a bunch of trips I couldn't buy a bite[frown] I know their are plenty of members fishing and never post anything. Not pointing fingers, I'm as guilty as the next guy at times. Im going to do a better job of posting my trips even if they are more fishing than catching[smile]

Sounds good but it will get buried here, ya need to put it in the recipe section. I know that I am always looking for new striper recipes as I eat striper once a week. Now experimenting with a Mediterranean striper recipe featuring lots of garlic & olives.

1st off, nice that Cris still posts some reports here.

I recall a guide that used to come to this site quite often about a dozen years ago &  posted a great topwater post. Problem was he also said "Millers Cove". Not being stupid, I went there early the next day, but not early enough. This little cove is not easily seen from the main lake even if your boat is Orange,  but there were already about 10 boats in there jockeying for a spot on either point.

Going out there with a buddy and getting enough fish for dinner and having a good time is great.

When you are guiding, that DOES NOT cut it. Nearly all your customers say that just being out there is great, what they really want is a box jammed with striper. Not always easy when you got 6 customers, some skilled fishermen and serious and others novices or happily just enjoying some brew. I have had some that were upset when we were heading back in at 1PM with both their and "MY" limit of overs, catch & release of other overs but a tad short on box fish.

When I 1st came to SOG about the time of the original fish fry in about 2001, I would give, time, general location, depth and general lure selection & presentation, usually I would hold back on one or two, especially if I had some trips the next day. After some nasty emails and even a couple phone calls from irate geezer fans demanding more...I quit posting

   In the beginning when there were lots of posters
