Re: What was I doing wrong on Sunday?

I had the same problem on Saturday. We fished around the mouth of the St Marks with shrimp, artificial, and a gold spoon. Nothing biting except a half size trout. I think we got there too late because the forecast I use said the best time was about an hour before high tide. I saw several boats, but ...

Re: Looking for rod holders

I wonder if you could bend the tabs on this one to fit in the corner?

I concur with both previous posts. Never been to the the Otter Creek range but I've heard good things about it.

Re: Will trade creek glory holes for hints on where to net shrimp

The only time I have been recreational shrimping was in 1986(ish) and we went to Mud Cove. My cousin's grandfather had a little shrimp boat and...

Re: St Marks report Sunday

Saturday I was in the East river and west side of St Marks and the water temp was 81 degrees. Couldn't find any good fish, just cats and a toad.
