Re: Sheepshead

Speaking of Sheepshead, I was FlyFishing up a creek yesterday. Was anchored up on a wide oyster bar with a drop off on the edge. Was fishing out of the boat using sink tip fly line and a gold spoon. It’s a place where I’ve caught a bunch of Reds. Anyway, after about 15 minutes of thorough fishing I ...

Re: Boat Flooring Question -

[/quote] I forgot to mention that as well. It made walking around on my boat much, much quieter. [/quote] Yeah, my wife told me to f-off last year when I told her about the $1900 quote. Instead I purchased a pad for $60 that is now attached to the 65qt RTIC that I stand on when poling. :lol: We'll s...

Re: Boat Flooring Question -

This guy quoted me $1900 installed with a 3 years warranty to do my Seaark 1860. He's out of Ocala so there would be some logistics to work out. He will do the measurements and quote the Seadek by itself which you would then install if that's preferred. I have the Seaark vinyl in my boat. I think he...

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. Interesting comment. I've always respected you and your posts. I did spend a day with Bur...

Re: Tarpon Fishing

Jeff, while I have very limited experience with Tarpon, if I was down in FLA in the area you're considering, the choice would be a no-brainer for me. Captain Scott Burgess takes out spin and fly casters and is top notch. You'll learn a ton and if there are fish around, he's dialed in on where they a...

Re: Ear, nose and throat doc for tube surgery?

My reco is to find a good local doc if at all possible. Makes follow up visits much easier and docs are like the rest of us. If you buy a fly reel from Amazon and then take it to you local fly shop to have them put the backing on, they'll do it but they'll also naturally be less inclined to care for...

Re: Who's going fishing this Saturday?

Since RtD was mentioned, I heard that guys fishing in Panama City won the Panacea Rock the Dock tournament. I'm not a tourney guy but does that make sense? Could a fella pay to compete and then fish Louisiana and submit a large Red?

Re: Need to buy crabs

I'm back in Montana for the summer but was talking with a buddy down there yesterday and he said either Rocky's or Crum's was advertising Fiddler Crabs. Not sure which one.

Re: Thoughts on chartplotter/sonar

I recently upgraded from the Humminbird 997c-si with Navionics Platinum Chip to a Simrad with FMT. (Retirement present from wife). In my opinion there is no comparison. Take a look at the video linked below and fast forward through to get to the area east of St. Marks. The FMT guy does a good job co...

Re: St Marks 10/23

Terrier, that's a really good day! I was on a flight back to Montana while you were out enjoying yourself. I think you ran into a pal of mine down at St. Marks. He's a good dude and an excellent flyfisherman, just doesn't do much flyfishing in FLA. As for a minor report, like Terrier, I have enjoyed...
