In light of recent posts, it makes me wonder how most crappie guys feel about selling gps coordinates to spots. I can maybe see it for spots you built, but how about for piles that others have built?? Seems like a way to make a quick buck from someone else's hard work.

I am okay with selling the information you have accumulated over years of fishing. I know a guy that put GPS spots on a lake map with information on catching bass. He was a Guide and Tournament fisherman, I think he sold that map for $300 or more, he didn't create any of those spots, he just knows they are good. I have a friend that bought a map from him.

I think it is splitting hairs, and hairs on the rear of a flea at that.

You can tell if you are a leader if anyone is following you. You can also tell if your information has value when people will pay you money to have it.

So if you built brush piles, and someone sold the coordinates to those spots you built, you would be OK with that?

If you don't want people to find/ fish/ sell your brushpile or whatever. Keep it in the boat. Once you kick it overboard it's outta your control

Yes. People will or have set a GPS coordinate of them, they are in a public lake. I gave away any ownership when I sunk them in the lake.

A brush pile becomes public domain once placed in a lake.

I agree if it's legal and you can make money at it then do it. This is America right?

I agree with the public domain, no questions there. If you find it you can fish it, but to sell it and profit from someone else's work? Come on, have a little respect.

HEY PAYING THE PRICE FOR A LIFTIME OF FISHING SPOTS THAT CAN HELP YOU BE A BETTER FISHERMAN AND TO CUT COUNTLESS YEARS OF LEARNING LAKES IS WELL WORTH IT... HE IS NOT SELLING THE PILES HE IS SELLING THE SPOTS.....COOL OFF ITLL BE ALRIGHT!!!

PLUS BUYING FROM A LOCAL LEGEND...IF I HAD THE MONEY I'D BE ALL OVER IT!!
WHAT DO YHOU THING A GUIDE DOES CHARGES PEOPLE TO FISH HIS SPOTS ALSO TO SHOW A GREAT TIME BUT ALSO YOU ARE FISHING HIS SPOTS!!

HOW MANY PEOPLE AFTER TAKING A GUIDED TRIP GO BACK A WEEK OR TWO LATER AND MARK THOSE SPOTS AND THEN CLAIM THEM AS THEIRS AFTER THE FACT....YOU ARE COMPARING APPLES HERE!!!

I will sell all of my spots marked on my graph and very few are brush piles.

Not!

Might as well go ahead and take free hand outs!!!!!!!

Put in the hard work, that's what America used to be about.
