Paid Memberships now available plus other site news
Paid Memberships are now available through the membership options page, please read the page fully before deciding on a paid membership!! Paypal is accepted, as is bank deposit. Please allow at least 3 working days for your bank deposit to show in my account. There is also a new level, Platinum lifetime membership. Its not cheap at $500.00 but gives you lifetime access, 2 hardcover books(due june 2013) and a seaway tutorial trip.
The gold level 365 day membership(currently $50.00) will be going up in price to $100.00 at the start of April, the reason for that is to reward those who have stuck by and supported the site and not just use it as a fast track to good fish. I expect many users especially those who have never made a post or contributed in any way will leave the paid memberships until there are good fish around.
The first piece of new paid membership only content is going live on the 1st of March and it is titled : A beginners guide to successful lure fishing in the seaway. Mainly for people new to the seaway or struggling with consistent lure catches but even experienced lure fishos might learn a thing or two.
More articles that will be released over the coming months:
- Shark Fishing the seaway
- Spotlight on individual lures - slugs, minnows, poppers, plastics - techniques for each one
- Predictability in fishing
- Trolling the seaway(yes I'm still working on this one)
- Bird Behaviour, what to look for, what to ignore.
- Fishing the split shot rig
I'll also be releasing some broadwater and seaway maps, highlighting areas of interest and what to look for at each one.
Also on the 1st of March, the SeawayFishing records page will be going live, it is finished, I'll add more species as they come in. The minimum sizes are also set. Claims are to be made in the forum, link is on the records page.
Most of the site is finished, I'm just cleaning up some loose ends and finishing some sections, the logo and top section is still under development as well.
One more thing, those of you who post on the front page(eg. Kane, brett, gordo, mirrors)All front page reports must be limited to paid members only. If that doesn't appeal to you then you can still post a report in the forum where everyone can read it.
I realise there have been alot of changes in a short time but hopefully this will turn the site into a much better resource and that those of you who decide to become paid members will reap the benefits of those changes. You all know what this site is capable of, I will be adding heaps of stuff over the next few months as well as plenty of reports but its always good to hear reports from other fisherman whose techniques may differ so I hope those won't stop.
