  1. Hi Ryan. Just for everybody’s info. I am 83 ansd have fished most of my life and am amazed at the new and interesting things I continue to learn from postings at MFCC. I also am getting interested in drone photography and find your increasing skill at photographing fish from the sky. Have you run out of battery power yet while videoing over water? What happened? Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks for the great comment Gene! It’s awesome having you onboard MFCC as a member.

      I have almost run out of battery while flying the drone over water. This is not a huge issue if I have launched the drone from the beach, because the drone will automatically return to where it took off from, before completely losing battery.

      However, if I launch the drone from a boat, and then it runs out of battery while still in the air, then I have more of a problem, because usually the boat has moved a considerable distance from where the drone took off. I always try to make sure I have at least 30% battery life remaining when I bring the drone back to to the boat. Better safe than sorry.

      LMK if I can help answer anything else. Good luck out there this week! 🎣

  2. Thanks Ryan. I have learned tons, made friends and now get to buy more fishing gear! You’ve founded and devoped a great resource for all skill levels, men and women.

    1. It’s great having you onboard Tim! I really appreciate all your helpful posts in the forum. Keep it up!

  3. Great stuff Ryan! I really enjoy this site, and the great community that it is. I’ve learned a great deal from this site and forum, and will continue to share info that I feel would be valuable to the group. Keep up the great work!

    1. Sounds great Mike! I’m glad you are finding the forum valuable, and I’ll look forward to reading your posts throughout 2020! 👍

  4. The forum is a great asset for MFCC members; I appreciate how respectful everyone is of each other’s comments and skill level. Definitely a place to seek and provide helpful advice/ opinions on fishing the waters of Cape Cod. Thanks Ryan.

    1. Thanks for your comment Drew. It’s great having you as part of the forum. Good luck out there this week!

  5. Thank you, Ryan, for creating this site and the forum. While the forum has always been incredibly helpful, I’ve found it to be even more so in the era of Covid-19 when I’ve been lucky enough to spend the spring on the cape and had a lot of fishing time on my hands, but was pretty unfamiliar with spring freshwater and saltwater techniques. Thanks to everyone who answers my (sometimes embarrassing) questions and gives advice and is helping to create a new generation of smart and safe, sustainable, eco-friendly, compassionate fishermen and fisherwomen.

    1. Thanks Sophie for your nice comment!

      As you mention, I think a lot of people have more time to go fishing right now due to COVID. In a way, I think more fishing time has been an unexpected benefit of the pandemic.

      And no worries about “embarrassing” questions. There really is no such thing! Everyone has to start somewhere, and I myself have asked many “embarrassing” questions whenever I try something new.

      Good luck if you get out fishing this week! 🎣
