I also want to say I don't want to discourage anyone who disagrees with my view of this topic. In fact that's why I started the post in the first place. Surfnsully also made in point in the post above, about meeting people and discovering new "spots". I think that's another reason I don't like Spot Burning, because there usually is no relationship made, and I fear many of the folks this stuff attracts won't respect these places as much as they deserve. Full disclosure I'm 55 years old, and if I were just starting out and in my 20's I might look at it differently. I've met and made many friends over the years out fishing solo, that became fishing buddies. I guess to me that's how it should be done.
