Re: Keaton Boat Ramp on Miami Boat Ramps!

I agree with everything you said. In fairness, every once in a while Miami Boat Ramps will showcase one boater who does everything perfectly. It would be nice to see more of the right way of doing things.

Huge Disappointment

Yesterday, I hooked into the biggest trout I ever laid eyes on! Unfortunately, the hook came out before we could get the net under it :( The trout was easily 26-27” long. Big yellow mouth. Thick as a loaf of bread. I hooked the trout in 5-6’ of water halfway between the Lighthouse and the sandbar. I...

Re: Questions about cast netting mullet in the fall

I can’t wait for someone to invent electric powered air boat engines and electric mud motors!

Re: Garmin depth finder GPS on the fritz?

I just remembered to post a resolution for my gps unit that was on the fritz. My batteries were drained just enough that the gps unit would not stay on. After fully charging the batteries the gps is working fine. I have taken the boat out six times since April and the gps is working well. Thanks for...

West Flats we’re good today!

We fished the west flats for the first time this year. It was too windy to drift, so we anchored on an old gps mark. The first cast with a live shrimp resulted in a 17” seatrout. Nice start! The action was steady for the next two hours…ladyfish, sand trout, jack, sharks, and a 2’ wide stingray. One ...

St. Marks - 5/1/21

Took the boys fishing. We caught a mixed bag. Lots of short trout, a nice size white tip shark, a large gaff topped catfish, a puffer fish, some mackerel, some ladyfish, and a bluefish. The trout really like a 3” new penny Gulp. The catfish, shark, and puffer liked pinfish. The ladyfish, bluefish an...

Re: Turkey Season 2021

I had two hens pay me a visit this morning. No toms. The hens came in silent and didn’t respond to my clucks. They were totally preoccupied with feeding and then disappeared after a few minutes. It was super windy! I treed an opossum during my walk into the woods. I wanted to kill it, but instead ga...

Re: Turkey Season 2021

I know where the turkeys were not this morning. Hunted diligently until noontime and couldn’t find any birds. It got very windy around 9:00 which made it difficult to hear. I’ll try again tomorrow.

Re: Garmin depth finder GPS on the fritz?

I worked on my depth finder GPS unit today. I thoroughly inspected every connection point, fuse, and wiring. I tested the batteries with my multimeter. I ran the unit non-stop for about an hour and it worked perfectly...never turned off or malfunctioned. As best as I can tell there is nothing wrong....

Re: Garmin depth finder GPS on the fritz?

Okay... I will inspect the ground wires and fuses and fuse box connections and try to identify an electrical fault. Is it ok to turn on the depth finder GPS unit while the boat is on the trailer in the garage? I don’t have any experience troubleshooting this equipment.

Garmin depth finder GPS on the fritz?

What is the typical lifespan of a Garmin depth finder GPS unit? Mine is about two years old and only gets used about twice per month. The unit is stored in the garage between trips. Today, after five hours of continuous use the unit shut off. I could not get it to turn back on. The batteries were st...

Easter Fishing the Flats

We enjoyed a great day fishing all over the flats. We trolled mackerel rigs and caught several 19-20” Mack’s. We caught a nice 18” bluefish on a 5” purple Shimmer Shad under a cork. We caught a dozen or so short trout, all 13-14”, on 4” silver Shad soft plastic lures. And, we caught a small shark on...
