I'm sorry to hear that as well! Has anyone had a good interaction with the new Porter Marine? I had hoped the name would carry on with the same level of quality.

Does anyone on here know how to find the one about the guy getting caught in his electric fence? This story and that one are the funniest that I have read on the forum. Thanks This one? https://www.bigbendfishing.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=209170&hilit=Electric+Fence+and+the+Lawnmower#p209170

Great report even if you didn't take home a limit of fish! What is the deal with the pogo stick at Deals? Last time I was there they got it out and started singing and dancing.

Re: April Fishing Report

Great report! Water temp in Big Pass this past weekend was 72, but only catfish wanted to get on the hook. Water looked the color of southern sweat tea.

Re: St. Marks??
