Re: Surf fishing near Destin Florida

I didn't even think about that when I typed it.. "30-40 yards". So much for modesty:D After you quoted it I realized that I meant to use the word "feet"(that's what I get for typing first thing in...

Re: Bamboo rod-missing section

Actually that may be the way I end up going. When i got home last night I studied it a little more in depth. It may only be 3 sections after all (you wouldn't think a person would mess that up),...

Re: Winter fishing pics...

Great pics! I'm feeling rather envious though. I haven't been on the water in, what feels like, forever. Got some new gear for Christmas (Gift cards are awesome) and am now itching to go.

Re: Where did my line go?

One of the most productive spots in the river I fish is fairly narrow. 15 to 20 feet across. So when I fish up stream I am casting perhaps 30 feet. I try to let it drift past all the overhangs and...

Where did my line go?

AARGHHH!
What didn't take off down stream is wraped around my legs.

The first time a day of fishing felt "Unfortunate".

Not sure I ever thought I would use that word related to a day on the water. Saturday was my first chance to hit the water for several weeks. The wife decided that we needed a bigger place, and I...
