Has anyone else experienced this: You pay to go on a boat - 1/2 day, 3/4 day, over night, etc... You get back and wonder how the other boats did that day, so you go online to check the reports and say, "hey, wait...that's the boat I was on, and that is certainly NOT what we caught!" I'm wondering if anyone out there knows, or has an idea of, why this happens. I check Terrence's website and sportfishingreport.com... Both of these websites have been guilty of reporting false counts. By this I mean, the counts they have reported for boats that I have been on have been completely wrong on more than one occasion. Also, while checking these website's reports, I have seen CRAZY crap- like...500 Sand bass for 20 anglers on a half-day boat. I'm guessing that one was actually 500 Sand Dabs. Today I checked Terrence's website and saw this: Alicia out of H&M Landing - "4-18 day" trip...caught 30 rockfish, 2 lingcod, 13 sculpin, and 2 red rock cod. WTF!??! Was it a 4 day trip? was it an 18 day trip? do I believe that they only caught rockfish on a "4-18 day" trip? and if they did give up on everything else, how could they only catch 35 assorted rockfish? How can these websites continue reporting such inaccurate information? Is it the captains who report the false info? Is it the landings who report the false info? Is it the person who enters the info into the website? (which I believe is most likely, after reading the posts on this website from a certain person who claims to be a writer for Terrence's website.) Anyway... I'm starting to lose respect for the aforementioned websites. I'm starting to think that anyone can get the info- have someone enter it into a website- and, after a short time, get a CRAPLOAD of HUGE fishing companies to sponsor me and let me quit my job and fish. Has anyone experienced this same thing? Does anyone have any knowlege or any idea why this happens?
