Re: Keaton 3/24: A sporty trip

Linked the pic I was asking about. Definitely doesn't look like a baby anything. https://uca5590561b9cb72777678a400b8.dl.dropboxusercontent.com/cd/0/inline/BMeG4wlksZyw47caoK8PkDKEnMlAtBUcVB18Iqi43DP6hxMk8uo0pmgod8CqGeetlTZwmwg7R5TUQHHf07Bsfr4fFc7fWj6nUgYV43JHf_f4SGb6qMrqa2K80pq3Hwa_SayLMhM7UZT5fucr...

Re: Keaton 3/24: A sporty trip

What kind of fish is that halfway down in the pictures? The gray one.

Re: Need Help Identifying a Fish

Does anyone recall catching these in the past(other than the past couple years) on the St Marks flats? I surely can't remember coming across them in numbers like this in 10 years of fishing the area. First one caught was a neat novelty but I really hate them now. They will bite anything and the jaws...

Re: New trick for grouper

Surprising they are that shallow but I guess water temps don't really reflect outside temps right now(warm mostly).

Re: Plotter recommendation $500-1,000

Another option could be getting a discontinued or refurbished unit that can run it. I know a couple of folks that went that way with no problems so far I had a Refurbished Garmin 74dv that worked awesome and not only that it was on top of my flybridge for years with not ill effects(uncovered). I th...

Re: Plotter recommendation $500-1,000

I have a Simrad Go9 With 3in1 Transducer that was about $750. EDIT looked up current prices and what the hell is going on with chartplotter pricing? I'd buy something used on Ebay or wait out what the hell is going on. They want almost $1,100 for a chartplotter I bought new for $750 last year. I don...

Re: Good areas for a novice "captain"

I'd launch at the fort and explore around that area. Follow everyone else and/or stay in the channel. If you go up the St marks there's a couple of obvious logs to avoid(about halfway to the 98 bridge).. The wakulla is my favorite and I don't go up the st marks past the 3rd of 4th bend past the 98 b...

Re: Jon boat or Gheenoe for flats

That Smitty seems like a good deal and probably rides good too. I know i'd prefer it to a Gheenoe. I'd go for a Carolina skiff in the length that you want and keep it simple for real shallow fishing but that's just me. Fiberglass has tons of abrasion resistance if you account for scratches :-D and t...

Re: St. Marks River

I could only get them in the deepest part of the channel a tough undertaking with saturday boat traffic. I idled over the spot moving when any traffic came through, rinse/repeat and just got tired of doing it. I was fishing in a similar spot on the entrance to a creek near the grass about a mile nor...

Re: Suzuki vs. Yamaha

I'd gladly buy a Suzuki over a Yamaha if the Suzuki was cheaper(they usually are) and IMO you should shop around for a better price on a zuke.

If they are within $200 of each other you can't deny the Yamaha would have more resale value.
