Post some pictures, watch a few of Mike W’s millions of videos, or maybe invite your friends to your favorite place to fish for an all out may lay winner take all smackdown event, whatever floats your proverbial boat… just participate within the community in a meaningful way and you’ll start collecting your Angler Award Titles!

This Week in Fishing - CHIPTY Interview with FishAddix Founders

So it’s been about 8 months since the last time I put FishAddix Brass on the hot seat and a lot has changed in that 8 months. Fish have been caught, reports have been written, photos taken, friendships forged, and professional fisherman have been caught cheating. Anyway, I wanted to give the creators of FishAddix a chance to “talk” directly to the members. Fortunately, Chipty has such a massive following that it makes it easy for them to reach the masses through the blog.

It’s always fun sitting down with these guys, and I hope you enjoy reading our informative but quirky conversation. Again, I’ll refer to the creators as FAO1 and FAO2 so they aren’t bombarded on the streets by crazed fans throwing their panties at them (yeah ok…. lol).

Chipty: It’s been about 8 months since we’ve sat down together, is there anything that stands out in your mind that you want to mention before we dive into things here?
FAO1: When the hell is Hollywood going to wake up and smell the ****ing roses? They need to make a movie about FishAddix baby!! Or at least let us get onto Dancing with the Stars.. They’ve denied my application 3 times now!

Chipty: I’m going to pretend I didn’t hear you say that you applied to Dancing with the Stars THREE TIMES. And I assume you are referring to the movie that just came out about “Facebook”?
FAO1: That’s right CHIIIPPPPTY [said really snoodie]. How about we skip the pleasantries and get to the interview?

Chipty: My apologies gentlemen coughdouchebagcough. What do you guys like the best about FishAddix right now?
FAO2: We really like the social aspect of it. It sounds weird because it’s a social media site but there’s a competitive type feel to the site where if you and your friends fish the same lake, you want to make sure you get out there and catch those fish in numbers, size, type, and post all your reports so that you can overtake the lunker hunter stats or become the Captain of a spot. This way all your friends have to look at your ugly mug whenever there looking up stats for a lake. So it’s not just a place to brag about your catches but it adds a bit of edge when you’re out there on the lake and it makes you stay out there a little longer, or hit a couple more spots.

Chipty: Wait wait wait.. you guys have friends???
FAO1 & FAO2: ………………[silence]……………………….

Chipty: Ooooookkkkk. Is there anything that the site does that you didn’t really intend, or maybe that you just didn’t plan for?
FAO1: Well I don’t know if we didn’t plan for it but, we’ve come to realize that the site will continue to get stronger, and smarter, and more efficient as more and more people join the site and add content. It’s not something we were directly striving for but it’s certainly been a welcomed side effect.

Chipty: What’s a cool feature that FishAddix has to offer the amateur angler as well as the avid fisherman?
FAO1: Just a cool feature and not like the greatest, most badass thing ever? Um.. I really like the all-time stats. I think it’s cool that anglers have somewhere to record their catches and they can see what they caught in previous years and how many fish they catch per year. It’ll be really interesting in like 10 or 15 years to look back and see what you caught, where, when, how, and even read your old reports. It’s like a little memory bank especially for fishing.

FAO2: Again, going back to the competitive edge of the site.. I like the fact that you can just see how you stack up against other people around the country or around the world. If you think you had a great season or a great day you can compare your catches, or your lunker with people all over. It’s not always fair to compare between states because conditions are different and a lake in New Jersey isn’t going to compare with a lake in California in terms of size of fish but… you know what I mean.

Chipty: Yeah I wouldn’t want to compare a lot of things if I were you.
FAO1: You’re an ass dude….

Chipty: So is there anything in the near future that FishAddix members can look forward to? I mean, other than the next Chipty installment?
FAO2: Well, our newest feature will probably come out before the next Chipty article since you seem to take a trip to Guatemala and back between articles. But the newest feature we are working on is really going to knock your socks off. It’s really going to be the ultimate bragging rights. Kind of an incentive system to keep those lines in the water and those reports coming in. It’ll be a really fun and we can’t wait until it comes out.. but we’ll have to keep you posted on a due date.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s blog. I would like to conduct more interviews in the future – perhaps putting some of the FishAddix members in the hot seat – so if you’d like me to grill one of your favorite members please let me know who and what questions you’d like answered. If you want to be in the hot seat then let me know why you are a good candidate.

Fish On!

P.S. If you have ideas that you’d like Chipty to write about – please email them in to I hope to hear from you soon.
