did anyone else get a little tead off at last weeks outdoor section ole pike wrote last week about catching big trout. i've been reading his stuff for years and i've noticed one thing. he cant hold anything back. he tells the whole world everything. if i was schuppe i would be hot. telling the whole world how and where he caught his leading trout. that was unbelievable. and that aint the only time pike has done this. he does it all the time. especially about public hunting. its bad enuff to find a good spot to hunt , but when you find one he tells everyone. he writes some good stuff most of the time, but sometimes he goes to far, and this time along w/ a report he gave off a few years ago about some good duck hunts he has crossed the line.hes gone from writing a neat little story every week to just all out ruining a spot. i still cant believe he did that last week! unbelievable.

I catch a lot of trout....and some times they are large. I share my secrets with my family and we all guard them tightly. It took lots of years and lots of blue collar money to learn our secrets. Now....I am not so anal that I can not take a friend fishing. When I post on this board I give solid reports with general locations. No gps coordinates. I mean I don't even use one unless I am offshore. We have learned the water we fish well enough that we are successful. We also know which boats to look for as we know the locals and they fish every day. If they are in the area they are most likely on fish.
There are some common denominators in salt water success; tidal movement, bait, structure, and seasonal patterns associated with fresh water in-flow and salinity levels. I have fished salt water since I was old enough to remember. It seems that all of my fishing success came from within these boundaries.
