RIP Steelheadsite


The Ohio and Michigan board inmates were put in lockdown. This was the result of a border war between the two states and it had nothing to do with football. This latest soap opera might be the final nail in the coffin and several in the steelheading community are saying good riddance.

Steelheadsite was one of the most popular steelheading sites on the internet. You either loved it or hated it. People loved it for the fishing reports and helpful tips. The haters blamed it for the sudden crowds in recent years and the spoonfeeding. I was never a contributor and it was nothing but cheap entertainment for me. I got banned numerous times for stirring the pot and rattling the moderator's cages. The constant flaming, trolling, fish porn backlash and hijacking of threads was too much. Moderators got fed up of rapping the knuckles of unruly posters or deleting comments on the the hour. This went on year after year after year. As a result many left in disgust or got outright banned. 

I guess the spoonfeeders are really screwed and they might have to do the unthinkable - get in the car and actually drive to the river. Most of them are probably losing their minds and googling for the latest steelhead report.............Poor bastards.

Stick a fork in it, because that site is done................

Greg,
Glad you like the reel. I met u one day at the Chagrin River Metroparks. I'm both sad and happy the steelhead site is down. Learned alot but to much BS. If you ever want to go fishing with a fly guy. I'll drive and pay for gas for some new water. I fish the Grand and Connie whenever I can.
