To our Family of Lurkers

Just recently a family member (Daughter) of Keith Johnson came on board to tell us her Dad had sadly passed away and shared some pictures. She said her Dad was a Lurker and just followed the Stage reading and sometimes sharing with his family but not writing on the site. Another member on this site said there were probably 4 Lurkers for every one that posts on this site. I want to Tell all of those who are Lurkers that what YOU have to share or ask is as important as what we regular participants on this site write. Everyone of you have a unique insight to something that the rest of us don't, whether it is fishing or not, there is a place for all (except politics) so please don't be shy and think what you know isn't important! The people on here are great Guys and Gals. Yes Gals too so if that fits you, let us hear from and share your knowledge and questions.

Well put Kerry!! The stage is truly a place where the more the merrier. Plus it’s a lot of fun to interact with us knuckleheads!!

If you’re reading this and you’ve never posted just chime in with a thumbs up or a “nice fish” ever once in a while. You’ll see it gets easier and more fun the more you become involved. It’s a bit of a self serving request because I know the more who participate the more knowledge we all can absorb.

Tight lines
J

Kerry. . . . GREAT post. The more individuals participating actively, the more info and ideas we will be exposed to. I came here after lurking for awhile, after leaving Quora, a site full of trolls and the troubled, as well as troublemakers, and total wiseaz$Ez. Maybe our lurker group had a similar experience. Made me a little gun shy. Too bad about that group, has lots of different categories or ya create a new one, but each one had people just itchin' for an argument. Not a discussion or debate or exchange of information but a weird kind of hostility, that spoils the experience for all. Gonna check back someday to see if they got it under control, without being too interfering. Must be like walking a tightrope to try to do that....
