Re: Tarpon Fishing

Interesting comment. I've always respected you and your posts. I did spend a day with Burgess and didn't see the type of behavior you call out. I know a ton of guides in Montana and have high expectations of them and their etiquette. I can tell a good guide versus a suck guide. Perhaps Burgess matu...

Re: Tarpon Fishing

Burgess can certainly "teach" someone how to run by on plane within a push pole length of someone else up on the poling platform, sight-fishing. Guess he was out that day they taught flats etiquette. His territory is Keaton, but Capt. Jay Carson would be an excellent choice, Jeff. 850 Thre...

Re: 2022 CCA STAR Tournament

There you go. Imagine catching a tagged red after May 28 and not being registered. You'd miss out on thousands of dollars of prizes, including a choice of three boat, trailer, outboard packages. Think it can't happen here? RockyG won a 22 Pathfinder five years ago when he caught the first tagged red...

Re: No Reports???

Numerous studies have shown that fish held vertically by the jaw by hand or a gripper device can suffer internal damage when their organs all smash down together. They are used to being horizontal and buoyant in water. It's kind of like if someone hung you dangling by the ankles upside down. By supp...

Re: No Reports???

Nice pix, Captain. :thumbup: You might want to coach your anglers into supporting all fish to be released horizontally to avoid internal damage to their organs.

Re: Fishing the wind

The ramp at Shell Point is another option. You can go east or west depending on wind direction. The public ramp in Panacea will also put you in close proximity of Dickinson and Levy Bays, with plenty of oyster bars and structure that hold fish on occasion.

Re: Apalachee Bay Questions

The current really rips through Indian Pass. The ramp is serviceable and plenty deep enough for a 20 PF, but it requires some careful boat handling. As others have noted, the ramp under the Apalachicola bridge is good anytime, just requires a longer run. If you want to try St. Joe Bay, the public ra...
