YOU REALLY SHOULD READ THIS EVEN THOUGH ITS LONG

Postby Kingofthesea » Sun Apr 27, 2014 4:34 pm

I've been living in Floriduh for three years now with nothing but time on my hands which can be very cool. I went fishing a few three or four times and, honestly, I was under impressed to say the least. So, I ended up restoring old jeeps for grinners with an online jeep forum that I found being my main university and source of inspiration. Then, one night about 8 months ago, for no reason in particular, I googled 'fishing forums in south Florida and ended up here.

My first impression was the Boatless Forum is an incredible fishing resource fueled by a very elite club of super anglers. A very tight group that actually use their real names in conversations with each other........ not with us, only between the club members. It felt a little intimidating and was further compounded by the fact that I don't know chit about anything regarding fishing down here. Nothing to bring to the party. I probably stared at my first douchy post for what seemed to be an eternity and I just couldn't send it. But let's be honest....it's the internet. I could be a 400lb lesbian drag queen covered in tattoos and none of you would know so I Iaunched my first post. Then, I started getting involved in a few random conversations. NOTE: My initial experience wasn't without a few glitches, like when I unknowingly, posted that fishing at the Dania pier is better during the week because all of the googans are hiding from immigration! Got my knuckles whacked for that one but I sure learned one of the forum boundaries pretty quickly lol.

Anyway, about a month ago, the 'elite club' was throwing a BBQ at John Lloyd Park. Probably, never would have gone by myself but I did meet a great fishing buddy at Dania one day when I recognized the goofy looking sissors hanging around his neck from a picture he posted here. So we both went. Me alone and him with his gorgeous fiancé and portable kitchen to impress. The little weiner.

Well, it definitely is an elite club of super anglers! But what I didn't know was that the door to the club is open to everyone. If you really enjoy fishing and want to know how special it can be down here you should consider getting involved here in some way. There is no limit to the information these super stars are willingly share. I just spent a couple of days on a bridge in the Keys having a very special time, with a great bunch of guys that actually WANTED ME to catch fish. And they taught me so damn much. Go figure, I've been fishing my whole life and now I'm the googan once again. Pssssst it's not really so bad, the members don't mind in the slightest and hopefully I won't be a googan for long.

So that's the hidden secret about the Boatless Forum and, of course, the rest is up to you. But you just can't ever say you didn't know exactly what's really going on here.

BTW I still have some difficulty calling Rare Nilsen but he's making it easier.

Well said Richard, boatless forum is not only source of information but also group of awesome people. After spending 1.5 day with more than 10 guys and almost 80 rods i realized how little I know about fishing and how much is to be learned!

Special thanks for tricks and tips but mostly great time!

Richard, thanks for breakfast this morning :toast: and this post :toast:

Here's my take on that......the BBQ down here was set up by a local member and quite honestly besides Gdm Phil (who I think traveled far) most of the attendance was somewhat local but admittedly I don't really know where most members live. And also I know GK put in some serious time and effort making it a success. That said, if someone in your area organized an event, let's say with participation from the west palm area at a minimum of say ten, I would definitely get in my car and drive to attend. Can't speak for anyone else but I do believe others would travel as well to support Boatless events and meet more personalities in person.

Of course, after I travel up to you the next time we are hosting something down here you can expect a PM from me reminding you that it's your turn. But that's the way it should work resulting in larger Boatless events with increased attendance which is the goal of many members. There were 87 rods lined up on a bridge this weekend in the Keys. I know the next time it will exceed 100. Aalkukhun drove all the way down to the Keys from West Palm on the 'chance' everything I have said was true. I think I will be seeing him again on another bridge or something in the future. But maybe it would be because the Grunk King graciously offered him a very large mutton snapper for the ride home. Big one (not as big as Miles lol) but a big one. And I think it was the first time GK ever met the man!!!

Nuff said from me for sure. :auto: :auto: :auto:

agreed I go out fishing and when your alone people sometimes just snub their nose at you. if we dont help each other with our sport it wont progress. Even in major league sports competitors give each other tips. glad to be part of the forum and glad to have had made numerous friends.


with that said boat should be here by the 15th if anyone would like an intro to vert jigging dont hesitate to call

That boy definitely has to speak to Tommy as to how he can officially change his screen name to Pacino. One trip to the Keys and the group changed his name from whatever that word is he had been using to a great gift of a handle directly from the forum. I had no idea how to pronounce the other name. Sounded like a sneeze or something to me. :auto:

this means im gonna have to do my al pacino voice when we group up??? awesome post and yeah when i first came on here a few yrs ago, i was searching for snook and and reading and posting mad questions and i have had the pleasure of meeting a good handful of the guys on different occasions, usually at anglin's and one of my first questions when im talking to someone is hey are you on the forum?? sadly when i met joe in tampa i was late cause of meeting a friend and then car trouble( no coolant before driving back to laudy that night) but i did manage to deliver the man some beers, it was cold as funk so we all left skyway. joe gave me a grouper lesson that night actually, that i have not forgotten.

point in case this forum breeds great friendships and tons of knowledge and im glad to be a part of it. sadly i work weekends as we have seen me bish about over and over and icant make these trips or bbq's :( club life. anytime anyone wants to link up though wed thur or friday im always up for it... great post KOTS
the awesome thing is even if fishing is slow we will always be in good company almost anywhere we fish, someone is always around.

That was a great breakfast, Thanks. ya know one of the things you hear allot around here is "put in the time" to find where, how and when to fish. but it also applies to the amount of forum people you meet. You will find most guys are just trying to get to their next fishing trip and are ready to tell you how good they are. Some are even willing via a screen name be the self appointed the :king: (joke) of this or that. But most will not talk about spots on the forum b/c of the amount of online hits. If you see the same person while out fishing and you will usually find out how generous they are with info. BTW You should share too. That being said, sometimes guys get jealous of friendships and post silly captions on pics.

I have had the pleasure to meet people that have become friends to me. Some more than that.

I will never forget a trip to the keys with a friend now my brother and I can honestly say another brother followed and another.

Unreal and yet so real.

Close friends for sho

I am glad to see you around, it will be good to see you at the BBQ.

I think about that Jack you caught all the time you had the biggest smile on your face, I still have the picture and just looked at it a month ago.

Great post. As a business owner and parent of a 4yr old and a 4 month old, my time to fish is severely impacted, and my time to participate even more. Still at some point I've got to join you all at your next 'Lloyd get-together to meet some people that clearly seem like down to earth decent folks. In the meantime I'll continue to lurk (and catch em up as I can).

I'm not trying to be negative but, just not enough active members to get this off the ground. As you can see only 1 reply since Pat posted. Bridge fishing get together.....That wont fly either. Last event we had a few pages of folks coming and only a hand full came. Some come on just to check post and move on. Years back members that fished together in the range of 4 to 8+ in each group.. It was much easier to get this off the ground. Each group of people who fished together usually showed up. I might be wrong so dont take this to heart. This place is dead, it has been for a long time now. I still enjoyed the past fishing with my brothers, but literally many have moved on. A few, I still fish when i can, others are way too far to do the long weekend fishing. Prove me wrong
