Do you think a local detailed guide of public fishing options is a good idea?

Would there be an interest in a local field guide for public fishing opportunities my local fishing area?

Do you folks think this a good idea??

I say yes, there are many people moving in and out of NC, and they have no ideas where to begin. I have been in my area for a few years and I am still finding public areas almost every week. Good topic and I do support it.
NCWildlife apparently thinks its a good idea...
10-4 can never have to many fishing spots or places to portage a boat

tight lines <*)))))>{
Sure Thing. Any additional information that is accurate can only be deemed as a positive thing. I use the NCWC website for Game Lands, landings, ...etc. But public waters would be great. I'm for it.
Sounds real good.I"m for it all so.
Im for it too . Been here 3 years still loooking finding some
Thinking about this subject brings about mixed feelings. Anyone care to discuss the issue, drop me a line....
I have mixed feelings.

While I would love a good guide, at the same time there are a number of places I would rather not see the tourists swarming all over.

That said, if you do not do it somebody else will, so you may as well do it and make sure it is done right. There is enough tourist traffic around here to sell it, and these days self publishing is very easy if you do not want to go through a publisher.
My motto has always been to leave a "fishing hole" or "camping area" cleaner than it was initially found. "Tourists" would be looking for that location that would yield high numbers. "Tourists" will not be concerned with preservation.

These areas would quickly become over fished littered with more trash than the state could pick up. As selfish as it may seem, I would much rather meet that avid fisherman looking for their next great adventure than "Joe Tourist" who slayed them and left his trash to prove it. I have absolutely no problem sharing information with the real deal on a site such as this....

Lol, I hope that I didn't ruffle any feathers.....
with all the bases in the Carolina's it would be a great idea in my eyes. And with people moving in from all areas it will be extremelly helpful to new folks to the area
I know when I moved to NC, I didn't know what was private or open to the public! So I say yes we need it!
