Re: Need help with Snook

It's been a while since I've posted on here, but I don't see any problem with targeting snook for your first time in salt. My family and in-laws have lived in the Sarasota/Sanibel area my entire...

Re: saltwater kayak angler thread

From the people I've spoken to about tarpon fishing from kayaks, fighting the fish is certainly doable, and can tire them out more quickly as they pull you around than from shore/boat. It's the...

Re: saltwater kayak angler thread

Just picked up a Malibu Two XL for fishing/recreation. Should be perfect for paddling around loaded up with gear or cruising with my lady and German Shepherd pup we just adopted. I have to agree with...

Re: Best Time Fishing in Years

Yeah, that's a pretty crazy story... it's amazing what dehydration can do (if I'm correct in assuming that's what caused his weakness). I never imagined you could go missing in that park on labor day...

Re: Best Time Fishing in Years

TB - Looks like a good time. The season is getting ripe for Long Island's North Shore to light up with big fish so I'm hoping to get her into a 40" striper soon. We are both from Florida, so she's no...

Re: New Sage Line Up for 2013

Re: Walk/wade fishing with 2 rods

I've been in similar situations and wished that I had only brought one rod due to the 2pc rod being such a pain strapped on my back. In one case it was a tidal river that holds everything from 4"...

Re: Billy Pate Bonefish

You're going to enjoy that reel. Billy Pate reels have their reputation for a reason. In regards to the right-hand retrieve: you may find you don't want to spend the extra cash for the conversion kit...

Re: Best Time Fishing in Years

Yeah, it's pretty sweet - we're going home to FL for a week this Saturday, and usually she's the lookout while I'm sight-fishing snook and reds... I'm thinking the roles are going to be reversed this...

So I've been pretty dedicated to fly fishing over the years and my girlfriend has been nothing but supportive, albeit from a distance. Lately I've been having her practice casting my 3wt in the...

Re: Heartstopping moments

Once when I was younger we were staying on Boca Grande for a few weeks after school got out and some friends came with us with their new (first ever) boat. I guess they thought they'd be fine just...

Re: What have you been tying today?

AJ, my family just recently moved from Long Boat Key to Sanibel. I hope you have a blast there, as nice as Sanibel is, I definitely miss the whole feel of the Sarasota area. Buttonwood Harbor was...
