Re: Looking for dock pilings @ St Mark's

Have you looked into PVC (filled with concrete) ? I am not sure if it is cost effective, but it might be more durable and more readily available.

Re: April 6 and 7th

It's like that sometimes, but I always enjoy being on the water and seeing the sights. I'm glad you were able to get out and catch a few. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Re: This forum is dead

My buddy and I went out Sunday 3-31. We launched at the lighthouse and went to a couple of creek mouths. The water was flat calm and 65 degrees. We caught a few fish before the tide made us move out to the flats. We found trout in 4-5 feet of water. They were aggressive. After about 20 trout and a c...

Re: Reel/Rod Maintenance & Repair…

If you are using a paste wax, apply it like you would on your car or boat. Let it haze, then buff it off. There are some spray waxes available that are spray on/wipe off. The important element of any wax you use is UV protection. Liquid wax can also be applied to the outside of the reel. It will hel...

Re: Reel/Rod Maintenance & Repair…

For general maintenance I recommend a good rinse of the rod and reel with fresh water after each trip. Follow this up with an application of a salt removal product, (salt-away, salts-gone, salt-off...etc.) and then a final rinse. Go ahead and cut your leader or lures off. Crank the handle to spin of...

Re: So following up on the Gag discussion

So following up, the reason the average length of gags is 160mm is because they count the releases as 0 so that reduces the total length. And it's total length in the data, so adjusting the data to actual catches and averaging the length to per fish instead of total length the data shows an average...

Re: So following up on the Gag discussion

My curiosity is well beyond peaked. Who is collecting the data from recreational anglers? Are there Fed. scientists roaming the waters? Are they collecting data from the USCG? I hear of FWC regularly inspecting anglers, but USCG? Not often enough to produce any data. If the average length of Gags is...

Re: Passing of "PA" Futchcairo

Pa was a special person. I enjoyed his posts and stories. In the past few years I was amazed that his physical limitations were frequently interrupted by projects around the house. Painting, ladder climbing, boat repair and such were just a few of the things he did in between recuperating from illne...

When you find them

I have not been out as much as I would like due to weather and scheduling issues, but when I was able to get out, the fish I was able to find were eager to bite. The river produced as some trout, but as usual for this time of year, most were short. I have been able to find some larger trout and redf...
