What do you like about fishraider?

Recommended Posts

I only joined a month ago, but have been hooked since day 1, many hours spent passing time reading up on some of the posts.

I haven't seen any sticky how to tutorials, maybe worth getting some done by experienced members,

Click on "articles" at the top of the page

Love how freely information is shared it's very rare these days to find genuine people that offer help to others without wanting something in return. Keep up the great work guys hopefully in the future I can help others as you have all helped me.

Whats not to like!

Fishraider defines what a forum community should be all about.

Those who take the time to provide and contribute to a resource like this such as the site owners, sponsors, administrators moderators and members should be afforded the

respect and consideration they deserve regardless of age, sex, ethnic background and fishing experience or fishing competency.

This is where other forum sites frequently fall short and end up being a vehicle for a select few to bolster their own egos by ridiculing those less experienced, less successful, the wrong ethic group or the wrong sex.

While I have not been on the receiving end of this I have certainly seen plenty of this on other forums and as the father of three girls and a teenage boy the Fishraider site is the only forum I have ever felt 100% comfortable letting them view.

In my view this is not just a forum, it is a living example of how interaction and communication should be and a great example for my kids to watch in action.

And, of course the fishing experience here is second to none.

Thanks Fishraider

Thank you very much for the comments Jim. We try very hard to keep this a happy and safe place for all to come including women and young folk. The fact that you feel comfortable as a parent to let your kids view fishraider makes Stewy and I very happy.

There are plenty of other forums for the "others" and we get rid of them quickly and swiftly :) with the help of our moderators and members.

Thanks everyone for this feedback. It affirms we are doing the right thing :)

Here is a cut and paste from a comment by JaniFin a member and now friend of ours.

What Fishraider membership mean to you?

I tell, so shortly what i can, what it mean to me.

To me, be one part of this forum, it mean Fu#¤ing lot. I cant explain it, but here i can askin stupid questions many times, and allways someone answer me. This forum have been helped me write better english, even it is still quite cra.....bad ;) . I dont know did i ever visit Australia with out this forum..maby not. Did i never fishing in Australia with out this forum...i dont think so. Did i never access aussie culture, peoples or lifestyle with out this forum..i am sure that answer is no. I have meet some fishraiders live, and i have meet many of members here, like "virtual friendship". This forum is clear, well organized, many active writers and nice fishing reports. I dont spend so mutch time even any finnish fishingforums that here.

I AM PROUD, that i am member of FISHRAIDER, and i am GRATEFUL for site owners, and every members that you took me a member, even i am not aussie.

Next year come 10 years that i have been member. :sun:

I come soon again..and i afraid that again one part of my heart stay there. :au:

What do I like about fishraider? Well for starters it has helped to improve my fishing. As someone whose immediate family don't fish (working on it haha! :1sweatdrop: ) it's great to be able to get advice when my extended family isn't around. Also I enjoy the wide variety of fishing that goes on in this forum. Always nice to be able to read about the guy who blanked, the one with 400 5cm redfin and the raider who caught a record marlin all on the same day!

But most of all, none of that would be possible without the people who run and regularly contribute to the site, so thanks to all of them!

Fishraider is an anglers home,

May fishermen never be alone,

When you give tips to all of us ,

We get enough fish to fill a car,

We fish forever and ever we fish,

Our wish is always to fill the dish,

We always see the hooked fish comin',

Hopefully we'll get some Marlin,

Fishraider contains everything,

That a fisherman could ever dream.

 

Thanks, by amberjack :D Fish On!

Nice poem you've penned there amberjack

An artist amongst us all

You seem quite inclined for fishy snacks

So here's a recipe I offer as reward

 

On the BBQ you should cook this dish

Baking paper, with this you begin

Sliced lemon lay flat then on top the fish

Do make sure to first fillet and skin

 

Next a garnish of herbs and sliced vegetables of your choice 

Quite a meal to this point contrived

Finish with the last ingredient to keep your food moist

Tablespoon of butter, mmm, right now I'm inspired

 

Tightly wrap,then fry on your plate or grill

Hot lemon and butter, what a collaboration 

Unwrap, remove lemon and then a beer you must swill

Put on plate, call the family and begin celebration!

I like about Fishraider is that all the members get to together and sharing advice about fishing spots and what to use for fishing

Old thread but one thing I have noticed about this forum is the lack of trolls, minimal know it alls and no disrespect to each other. I find the information shared is useful, everyone focuses on the core topic and there is always a valued audience for each thread. I am not a full time user but every time I do use this forum I always find a positive light to the best sport on the planet.

Hey guys! Solid effort on the site!

The friendly vibe and active administrators make it second to none! Also the Raiders fish status with the rankings and badges for record holders is a sweet touch! The design and ability to post in specific areas is great and websites really easy too navigate .

Cheers Raiders! Tight Lines!

Hey Rick..I have actually left most of the other fishing forums around here due to lack of spirit and  troll commentators/competitive know it alls  who think their way is the only way jargon, I find this site actually has it all!

Unfortunately im quite far from Sydney but would travel there in a heartbeat to arrange a trip with fellow Raiders! I usually fish solo which can be a bit sketchy sometimes when offshore alone or on the stones at night but sharing the experience is what its all about! After all everybody has heard  ''it was this big but i dropped it at the boat'' so its nice to have a backup Raider ;)

Happy Fishing! Hopefully this rain will turn the breakwalls on,  the bar here is practically impossible!

Thank you so much for the comments CJay. Everyone seems to love their badges. We started that a long time ago and I used a really old badge making program. There are much better ways to do badges and awards but it would be a big job to recreate. Keep enjoying the site, lots more coming up in the future.

CJay we seem to have survived most of the other fishing forums and those that are left are mere shells of what they were. We just keep using the tried and tested methods of ensuring a happy place for all men, women and young folk to share fishing experiences. To do this we quickly weed out troublemakers, have great a moderating team and fabulous members from all walks of life. Everyone can be proud to say they are a fishraider ;)
