    Just to give you guys an update in regards to Sinker's post a few months back about this site possibly shutting down...

    Get Bent is not shutting down or going away. I have taken the entire site over from Sinker and will be managing it from this point on. No major changes coming, just some updated forum software and a new front page. Once we finish with that, the focus on pushing some more traffic to the site along with getting some swag made. If anyone has any suggestions for improvements, I'm all ears. Good things to come in the future folks! ;)

    Thank you everyone for all your support through the years.

    Joey

    Time for the new guard to take the rains and roll.

    This thread is already a year old and I see it for the first time.
    So at least all is going good if I did not even notice.

    What also struck me after being absent a long time is that it is still the same core members that were around in the early 2000's

    Good luck Joey with the future and thanks Sinker for bringing the site to here.

    The only problem with a beach bash is finding a spot we can reserve for a larger party that will still let us fish. Well that and that costs do not make it prohibitive. I found a private beach but at 5K to rent that was a no go.
