Re: Steinhatchee Update???

Seems like winds have moved to later in the year, used to be March when you’d catch those but our April trip to the Hatch last year was absolutely the same weather wise. Think I’ll change my planning strategy to trying to make reservations only couple days out in the future. I’m mostly retired and t...

Steinhatchee Update???

Well I said I’d send post on my trip so here goes. BLOWN OUT! That’s it. My wife and I got here Monday afternoon and got the boat in and tackle ready for Tuesday morning which dawned with the wind STRONG only to get worse. Steady around 15 gusts 20-25 and that was by far the best day. We did make it...

Re: April 5th @ Keaton

Thx for the post, looks like y’all had a beautiful day. Sorry the big ones didn’t cooperate. My wife and I are headed to Steinhatchee Monday for several days and super excited to just cruise those beautiful flats. Don’t get me wrong, sure hoping to catch some fish as we love trout filets. If anyone ...

Re: This forum is dead

Yeah, don’t have to fill the cooler to post about a fishing trip. Most of us just like to hear about adventures however they turn out. I thought it was sorta about exchanging information good, bad, or ugly. Tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful so you know there are some lucky folks going so maybe th...

Re: This forum is dead

I agree! I had not seen any posts in such a long time I even reached out to the site moderator to see if it was still viable ( course never heard from them either). Realize it may not be the best time of the year with weather but you know there are some hardy souls that are venturing out and when th...

Re: St. Marks??

Well, my son, grandson ,and I did make it to St. Marks yesterday. Got boat in water about 9:30 and tried slow trolling some swim baits as we headed towards mouth of river, no luck. Not many boats in river maybe 10 or so. We next tried the insides of several bars at river mouth same results so headed...

Re: St. Marks??

200 views and no replies, know it’s not necessarily peak season but surely someone has wet a hook. I ended up not being able to make it but my son and a friend went. Wind was apparently gusting 20+ easy so trolling and anchoring tuff. They showed fish stacked up in deep holes but those wouldn’t bite...

St. Marks??

Son and I hoping to maybe try the river at St. Mark’s tomorrow if the rain passes as supposed to. Has anybody been giving it a shot? Have any fish made it into the river? Just not that familiar with St Marks as living in Georgia just not down there often. We did go last year later in season and tore...

Re: St. George Island Fishing

Awesome, we will try some dawn topwater especially if they still issue a yearly pass to state park which used to give you access to the gate code so you can get your boat in the water before sunrise. I’d rather catch one on topwater than 10 any other way. And if you are staying on the east end of is...

Re: Triple Tail in the Bay

Awesome, great day! We headed for St. George Island 6/3 for a week and will definitely try the buoys as I’ve never caught a triple tail. We ate some filets ( hate to admit I bought) last summer and they were delicious.

Re: Keys Question

Yeah, I’m actually trying to” build” our trip around going to Dry Tortuga. That’s been on my bucket list for quite a while. Probably revisit/snorkel at Pennecamp, where we camped with our sons 25+ years ago and basically wander our way south with idea of staying in Key West just long enough for the ...

Keys Question

Realize that this ain’t a Big Bend question but figured with all you fishing folks out there I’d pose it. My wife n I planning to revisit the Keys this Fall by car, hoping to see pretty water, sightsee, snorkel some n maybe try to fish one day. That said, does anyone out there have a guide/service s...
