Re: NFGFC 2021 Tournaments

Sounds like going to Bumpa’s Thursday night is easiest. Apparently some changes took place. Weigh-in appears to be lanark. They’ll clarify acceptable ramps I’m sure. There are no additional fees for side pots this year. Everything is included. Flounder, big red, spotted red and big trout will all ge...

Re: FSUS Ducks Unlimited Tournament (Redfish & Trout)

You deserve a ticket if you bring a short fish to tournament scales. you’re allowed to have a trout over 19, so putting it in the weighmaster’s hand doesn’t automatically mean an angler broke a law. If you bring a red over 27” it’s a bad look. Not saying I agree with the rule (I don’t), but it makes...

Re: New Franklin County Reef

Glad to hear the transition is going well Dave.

Eightwt-you might be surprised at some of the tippit records for red snapper. I believe some could be broken in our neck of the woods...

Re: incoming tide or outgoing tide

Chris is right. Depends on what you’re doing. Going back in creeks you want to work with the tide. Flats can go either way depending on type structure and wind. Quiet boat control and understanding what’s happening to the bait are key. Moving is better than not moving.

Re: Flyfishing - Locally

Good reports. Have a safe trip back. I am going Glacier this summer. Do you have a guide recommendation out of whitefish?

Re: Pole Barn/Metal Building Recommendations

Bought a 24x36 pole barn kit from Gulf Coast Lumber. Later had a slab poured. Then hung siding and had Rose City hang a garage door. Gemeni ran pier for me. Two boats, tractor and zero turn and a bunch of Rubbermaid’s on shelving fully protected. Only bad decision was 10’ tall. Gave me a 9’ door so ...

Re: Good areas for a novice "captain"

Honestly the boat is more limiting than anything you’re doing. If you want to play in rivers, shallow southern lakes or on the flats, then I would consider a boat swap for something that drafts shallower.

Re: St. Marks Flats Fishing ?

Probably caught 70 slot trout on the flats last Saturday. Double up every cast for a couple drifts until we went in search of other fish.

Re: SPANISH MACKS

What do you guys do with them? They bleed and make the boat a mess. Taste ok the day they’re caught but I haven’t had luck eating them later. I have smoked a few and made decent fish dip. Do you target them just because the pull drag or are you wanting them for the table?

Re: Jon boat or Gheenoe for flats

Can anyone recommend what to look for in a used aluminum boat for this area? I'd like to comfortably fish at least two adult men, handle the flats on a nice day, and get into the creeks reasonably skinny. I get that there's nothing that can do it all, but what makes for the best compromise? Sent fr...

There were a ton of boats out last weekend. Come down this Saturday and fish with the NFGFC. Plenty of fishing reports will be shared.
