    Good seeing you guys out there as well. Going out to The Fort tomorrow. Hopefully I'll find some fish and have something to share with TOF.

    The Snook are making their way out to the beaches and I'm seeing fewer of them in the back waters.

    Nice steady bite on the Reds on a grass-lined magrove shoreline last weekend.  Slack tide and all caught using a bone spook or free-lined shrimp.

    And half a year later...

    The boat is great so far.  You really have to pick your days and almost let the wind determine where you're going to fish.  Taking a chop on it is not fun at all but it will get through it.  Still love it and it has been pure joying fishing it thus far.

    I'm back my TOF family!  Completed a short scouting trip in Upper Tampa Bay on the 24th from around 9am (low slack tide) till about 1pm.  The fishing is no where what it's been like past Decembers!  Was mainly fishing topwater, mirodine, and select shrimp.  I caught 6 snook and 2 reds all identically sized.  Not great but definitely beats getting skunked.  I was not seeing as many fish in the water as I usually do.  Saw a few guides out there also making it rain whitebait but not much action there either.  I'm planning on going back out tomorrow but will try my luck much further south.  I will keep you posted.  Feel free to drop me some odd December weather advice via message.  Good luck and tight lines out there!

    Thanks, Andy!  Many of us remember the bucket very fondly.   
     
    And by the way, I tried being a Berry but found that Barry works much better. LOL

    Very nice snook. And to think that I get all (over)prepared, geared up, ice, 6 rigged rods, Go-Pro charged etc, etc. the night before. You go out and fart around for "30 mins. or so" and kill 'em. I hate you. Just kidding Arti...very nice job    two thumbs up! I know you did your homework.

    Nice job on the snook.  I, on the other hand, haven't had the best luck with Snook this winter.  It probably has a lot to do with how much time I didn't spend on the water October-December.

    I hear you man!  I've just realized how many posts I've published that sort-of-kinda give away good spots and never realized how many lurkers there probably is out there who never contribute.  Your post actually made me edit my initial post which was a bit more detailed.

    This post is a bit late but I've finally gotten around to it.  I just recently edited it based off Alex's recent etiquette post  Last Saturday we took the boat up to the creeks in somewhere in Tampa Bay with my cousin and two good friends.  We were getting skunked in the creeks for about the first two hours.
     
    After dealing with the cold and wind for a couple hours, we decided to go over to the residential canals.  There, the bite picked up a little and we managed to catch a nice sized Snook and Black Drum within the first 30 minutes.  The next few hours were a bit slow.
     
    After heading grabbing some lunch at a place on the canals, we decided to call it a day and head back to the ramp.

    The fishing was slow this Saturday morning when I went out to Fort DeSoto.  I was fishing the magrove/grass flats searching for Reds and Trout.  I caught plenty of small trout (no keepers) and was not able to find any reds.  Also some Jacks, lizardfish, magrove snapper (2 keepers), 3' blacktip.  Most fish were caught on a bone-colored Spook or free-lined shrimp.
     
    I also caught 2 of these guys fishing around a jetty.  Are these juvenile gags or Goliath groupers?  I don't know too much about my offshore species.

    I really like the Stradics for the price.  I haven't fished with the Ci4 just because I think that foam handle tip would get fish slime that impossible to remove.  It is feather light and haven't heard anything but good things about it.

    Based on this thread, my next reel will be an Okuma to give them a shot.  I've never owned one.

    I've always wanted to make my own rod but never got around to it. I'd rather spend my free time (what little bit I got) fishing. I'm excited to follow the progress on this though.
