    If you were ever on iFish take a moment to read this notice I received from them yesterday. I deleted my account there long ago, but it seems some of my information was still exposed there.

    I got the same thing because VerticalScope bought out Gun Hub, the remnant of one of the oldest online shooting communities.

    (For the record, GH started as the old Prodigy Shooting Sports BB back in dialup days, and its members over the years have included such notables as Frank James, Walt Rauch, Charlie Petty, Patrick Sweeney, Dean Speir and Mas Ayoob.)

    I find it concerning that anti-gun Canadians are buying up American outdoor forums... who knows what they'll do with the PII gleaned from that?

    When I first saw this thread title , I thought it was some sort of "App" for a smartphone ... Which led to the thought : How would you eat an "electric fish" you "caught?"
    Just goes to show me how far behind the times I am. LOL

    I just went over there, have not been there for quite some time looking for any info on Netarts Bay, Nestucca River for this weekend.

    That site is a complete mess. It has the same platform for over 10 years now. Apparently they had password issues, it no longer recognizes my login or password. I trolled around a bit, found the same old tedious bullshot that always was there and bailed on it in less than 4 minutes.

    +1 with Diamondback!
    My other forum, M-14/M-1A, was just bought out by the Canucks too.
    I voted with my feet! :(

    I stay mainly because the GunHub gang are some of my oldest and closest friends, and I know most of the Old Hands who are mods will try to give pushback and curb new management's excesses.

    I got that same email, but had 9 forums listed...

    What REALLY drove me nuts was their new password requirements. Fortunately, I've not been to any of the sites for some time, and no longer use the passwords I had used. I won't worry about going back anytime soon.

    It really is not a gun or hunting friendly website. It is mainly for talking about fishing.

    Very PC website too. Cannot discuss anything political or even controversial.
