Author Topic: Creating new Lakes

Does anyone know how to Create a lake that is not in the fishing reports Database. Im looking for Cowichan Lake on Vancouver Island and can not find it in the search.

i was wondering this too i know a lot of bars and holes that arent even inn the reports here
how do you add them ???

I think that this would require some web programming on the part of the site administrator. I've sent an email, so hope to report back later.

PS Getting a bit chilly on the lakes.

Yep, mail returned again but check out "Mill Lake Bass ..." post, breathinginsufer has been censored, maybe by BeerDust, is he an administrator of some sort?

my post was changed as well, all i said was you have to be crazy, or something along the lines of that if you eat fish from mill lake.

I found the governor!

He replied:

Yes, I am managing this site. Unfortunately resources are rather limited regarding adding new locations. Primary problem is getting quality maps and copyrights for them.

At some point we may switch to a generic presentation of maps, but this is still rather far in the future.

SharpHooks is a hobby and not a professionally maintained site.


Hope this answers your questions, and before you ask, I won't reveal his ID, sorry.


good for you mr jeff!
we have a great site here so lets keep it that way and improve it!!!!

I have asked the administrator if we can help expand the database. I do have some experience in this area, but I need a few willing member to give some support. Anyone interested?

Seems like almost every lake that I fish at and try to write reports for are not available.

Mr. Jeff.....Were you in contact with Alex ????

I did email him and got a reply that he did not have the time to expand the database. I offered to assist but got no reply. It is a shame because I do like the simplicity of this web site. Perhaps it is worth another try.

Just to tet you know, my email address is on my profile. If you would rather get a direct response you can email me.
