Fishdope has given me the best info by far. more detailed info, no BS no humor, no "look at how great I am" stories. Just the facts! they also give you sea temps, and they also have a good messaging board. I have used Fishdope for as long as it has been up, and I like it.
Hey dude go with FD, the quality of info is key and theres is the best...They will tell when its HOT and also have the guts to tell you when its not...Not many will do that..I always want to know where NOT to go as well as where to go...Godo Luck...
All the services are great, they ALL provide the freshest info available for what has happened during a 24 hour cycle based on reports from each service code group.
Phil and Terrence have their sources and Jason and Bob have theirs, it's ALL good and we're lucky to have these guys on our side.
FishDope was created by skiff anglers for skiff anglers (sorry big boat guys ) and the dope is provided for the most part by skiff anglers who are FD members, it works well. A sprinkle of Jason's private code combined with Terrafin makes for a pretty sweet addition to our tool boxes.
It's not a magic bullet, nothing is, but it could help you eliminate a whole bunch of unproductive water.......and you can get involved by calling in your catch or you could be a lazy leach like me and just tag along for the ride
