I thought maybe he was talking about MDLR too, but MDLR is not doing what Ultrastealth is saying (making people pay on pateron so he can host a meetups to show them spots) so I figure it must be someone else??
Yes he has pateron, and yes he shares his info on where he went and what spots he caught, but he doesn't tell you the conditions he was in really or time or current etc. Yes I signed up as a patreon awhile back - not for the spots but because I like his main youtube videos and wanted to support his work as his videos are very enjoyable, more enjoyable than 99% of the crap on regular TV I pay $100 a month for
And I never noticed him not responding to messages on his youtube prior to signing up - he seems like a decent guy (granted you can't truely judge a person's moral character through the internet).
And - he does not appear to share secret spots that others gave him. He even says he's not going to share such and such a spot if he's with someone their secret spot like Trailchaser (also awesome videos).
And ya, the meet up tomorrow is not for him to show off spots, it's a lures tournament for fun. I'd suspect people are going to be somewhat secretive so they win the lures lol. If you go in a big group you probably are not going to win (if winning was your goal).
I have half of Tobins vids and they are great. They don't have 100% of everything you need to know (not knocking you Tobin!!!). You still need time on the water regardless of how much info you have. Youtube videos (any point of view video) is very close to Time on the water in my estimation. And if they are fishing the way you plan to fish (out of a kayak), then that seems like a good thing to check out.
