Re: Aluminum vs Fiberglass for our area

I'm selling a dinky (11.5ft) aluminum semi-V, with trailer, for $250. Probably too small for those reading this thread, only rated 9hp, but a super cheap way to putter up the East River. Neither the boat nor trailer has been within 20 miles of salt water.

Classic Sears aluminum semi-V hull and trailer for $250

Forever ago, my dad bought new a 1970 Sears Gamefisher 11.5ft semi-V hull 2-seat aluminum boat and only used it a few dozen times. Stored under cover in Orlando for 40+ years, then he drove it up to Tally, where it remained under cover in my back yard. Boat and trailer are in very good condition, re...

Re: The trout seem to have worms right now

SG, I found a youtube video by "fishyourassoff.com" that described the full worm life cycle of shark/shrimp (or baitfish)/trout/back to shark. No scientific references, but the description does follow well-documented parasitic worm life cycles. Maybe this is similar to what you read.

Re: Panacea Tournament Results!!

Is Woodville Ace 5pm the WEIGH-IN site/time for July 9? I'm assuming the meeting on July 7 is at Walk-0ns.

Re: The trout seem to have worms right now

I like to catch & cook worms from Apalachee Bay. Mostly I find them in seatrout. I just eat the trout along with the worms.

Re: What am I doing wrong

Brian, as usual, you are the voice of reason. When somebody asks somebody else where they caught fish, there is a balance between... 1) In the mouth. 2) 400 meters inside Big Cove entrance near the east bank, where there is a gradual dropoff from the first oyster bar, 30 minutes before the end of lo...

Re: What am I doing wrong

Hey Ropeman, Yep that was me. The trout/reds are definitely biting in the SMNWR creeks. If you can throw a cast net in the little side creeks or canals near the lighthouse and collect some mudminnows, they are like candy in the tidal creeks. Horns Creek and Stoney Bayou are holding lots of good fish...

Re: October Fly Tie Night!!

Super! I'll trade you my box of 20 classic Oregon steelhead flies for a handful of streamer patterns. Will be in touch! No rush, I won't need them until the next CCA tourny starts in May.

Re: October Fly Tie Night!!

Any wet fly that a redfish or seatrout might mistake for a mudminnow (killifish aka bull minnow OR banded killifish aka tiger minnow). My rig is a 7wt, with slow sinking line.

Not sure anybody has use for my steelhead flies (not too many salmon around here!) but they are pretty.

Re: October Fly Tie Night!!

If anybody attending has a half-dozen saltwater streamers that they are willing to trade for 20 classic Al Brunell (Google him) Oregon Steelhead flies, let me know and I will be at the meeting.

Re: St marks nfgfc roll call

And thanks to Jay Fishburn and crew for making it all happen. Your efforts are appreciated, especially when the task is harder due to sucky weather.

Re: NFGFC 2022 INFORMATION

Brian's doubly right, RockyG. Wadefishing in NFGFC tournaments was prohibited maybe 5-6 years ago. And Redtrout/Seatrout Shootout tourneys were always boat-only. Moot point anyway. I don't have any right knee cartilage left for wading, so the Torqeedo electric motor beast that swamped two of my cano...
