How You Build a Kickass FB Group for Fishing Reports

This inshore fishing community is growing fast, and for one important reason.

I’ve been a moderator on one forum or another since I was 16.

The forums that worked the best were the ones with a focus on a particular niche, governed by a set of rules, with a staff of like-minded folks enforcing those rules.

That’s what I did on Louisiana Fishing Reports, and it was successful. Anglers enjoyed the discussion free of negativity and unneeded criticism, as well as the informative fishing reports that actually help them catch fish.

But, I’ve learned there are more opportunities to provide a badass community on Facebook’s group platform, so that is where we are.

To say it’s doing great would be an understatement. Membership is rapidly growing and so are the number of quality fishing reports being posted!

It’s a fishing intel treasure trove!

How is this possible?

As mentioned earlier, I keep a set of rules to govern the discussion and deter trolls.

  • check
    Treat others how you want to be treated.
  • check
    Louisiana based, inshore fishing reports ONLY.
    Please include the general area, what you caught and how you caught them.
  • check
    No off-topic posts.
  • check
    No post hijacking. If you have a new fishing report or discussion, then please create a new post.
  • check
    No buy/sell ads.
  • check
    No advertising your business. This applies to fishing guides, too.ow you want to be treated.
  • check
    No foul language or explicit content.

Needless to say, inshore anglers love this group!

Keep catching and sharing!

I must say I have been looking for a group like this all my fishing life!

This group is like Christmas to me.

This has been a community of anglers who love our sport, our state and each other.

Sharing tips, ideas and fishing spots. I am already a student of Inshore 101, of your blog and this group. That is a blessing to me.
