I just tried to log on and saw the news. This is really too bad.
Not only was it a great forum, but now alllll thosseeeeee reports, tips, insights, pictures, all lost. That's the biggest tragedy. Even if nobody's reading a forum, all the old threads can provide a newbie with massive guidance towards getting into surf fishing and being successful. There's so much value in that. I hope if theres some way to make the archive accessible, they'll find a way to do that, but obviously that seems far-fetched.
