I wouldn't say my remarks are silly i was offering you some friendly advice on posting. I noticed you have only posted a few dozen times yourself so I figured you are fairly new to this forum. Talking from experience and seeing the decline of my own local marks such as Burntisland breakwater, east neuk piers in winter and various west coast sea lochs with huge problems with litter, fires, illegal camping, numpties, neds, restricted access etc. I'm not saying its purely down to anglers on this forum just suggesting a bit of discretion doesn't go a miss.
Will you enjoy fishing for mullet at the river leven when there's 20 other people throwing bait at the same shoal as you spooking all the fish? Then you'll see idiots trying to foul hook them with big treble hooks and leaving beer cans, disposable BBQs, tackle waste, and even human feces at their behinds? And if someone comes along and nets them all in the next few weeks time (which happens regularly with big mullet shoals by the way - worth a lot of money on the european and asian markets) I can assure you it will break your heart and you'll wish you had kept the mark to yourself.
I am not suggesting that we should all clam up and keep information to ourselves, if you check back my previous posts from as far as 3 years back you will see I have personally contributed a great deal to this forum in the way of catch reports and advice through PM's to a great deal of forum members. I always offer advice and tips to anyone who needs or wants them, as an angler who has fished all my life and had the opportunity to fish for Scotland at international level and learn from the best anglers in Britain I can assure you I have plenty to bring to the table. I am sure dozens of forum members would testify to the helpfulness of my posts and private messages, not to mention the work I have done repairing and rebuilding their rods.
I was merely pointing out that a post entitled "Mullet" advertising literally thousands of mullet in the river leven is an open invitation to anyone wanting to have a go, or should your chosen profession be to take fish from our rivers and seas to sell, make a quick buck. Good luck fishing for the mullet by the way, great fun if you catch one! I sincerely hope your local mullet hot spot is not abused and ruined as so many of the marks close to me have been after similar revelations on this forum.
