    Hi from South America

    We would LOVE to have you sending us pictures. I had a neighbor from your nation and he told me many stories about the beautiful fishing and countryside!. Feel free to post your stories here.

    Any oldtimers still on this forum?

    Me Tell people to come here. Forums lost popularity but they have advantages over FB. I love FB but forums are still more permanent. We just started paying attention to these again. We can use help.
  3. I just read this old post and found it very interesting. I have also fished the bay for lots(!) of years. One of my premiere fishing buddies (the MOST premiere actually) Captain Mike Plastic once showed me the secret to winning the National Sheepshead Competition. Not that there is a national Sheepshead Competition, of course, but the method proves the best. Buy frozen shrimp. Thaw Shell them Put on small hook (#8 or #10) Push tiny hook through (Now Peeled) shrimp meat Use split shot on the line or tie a light-weight(!) rig that will bring baits to bottom. Drop bait to bottom Feel tug Lift. Do NOT set hook; simply lift. Fight fish Unhook fish Repeat from Step #5.

    Unboxing – B-Bait

    The idea of putting scent into a capsule is brilliant. Just brillient. And the size and shape of those things has got to produce. I would imagine they're gonna work on redfish as well as they work on black bass. Tell us how they produce. The issue with guys like you doing reviews is that you know how to work lures. It ain't the lure that produces

    When to cast and when to jig

    Jigs work very well. Two things. First, try putting a "tail" on them. In addition to the bucktail or fake hair they have on them, get a big soft-plastic lure and put that on as well. The wiggle makes the jigs more effective. Secondly, try a frozen sardine on a jig. When fish refuse to hit artificials they will almost always eat real bait. One other thing; drop the jig all the way to the bottom; feel it tap. They lift it up a foot or two. Keep the lure close to the bottom but just off of it. Fish you see mid column are just as likely to be looking down as they are to be looking up - a little more maybe. Hope this helps. Tight lines

    White perch. They sure eat well. The memories of me fishing with my Uncle Eddie are so close now and so warm it's a beautiful thing. It's hard to beat Florida. But at least you can vote in both places and at least zero out one Jerseyite that does it here.

    Are those White Perch???? I used to catch them with my Uncle Eddie in NJ many many years ago. I can still remember the bobbers going under. I also remember some really epic days. It used to be so cold I would go to my uncle's station wagon to warm up. Here I do that when it's 60F. poyssick

    Plenty of fish

    I just saw this. What a haul. Amazing. We have friends that have fished at 200 feet and the markers were just lit up. They took all kinds of fish and limited out on American Reds. They don't seem to be very threatened. poyssick

    lure variety makes fishing so much more interesting

    But you are totally right about action. How you work a lure means all the difference in the world.

    lure variety makes fishing so much more interesting

    I remember fishing with the late Capmel Berman. He was a trip. He had twelve tackle boxes and would pick one for the day. He had every lure known to man and quite a few that weren't. He changed them every two or three casts. We were big bait people, and rarely, if ever, didn't have blackened wells filled with tasty whitebait. Even when we had the fish banking their heads against the boat he would keep changing lures and once in a while hooking a suicidal fish. Meantime we might have released 30 or 40 fish. Or three. Every once in a while he would break down and use live bait. To catch fish for the table. But man, did he love plastic lures. One of the things I really loved about him was how much we laughed at his use of lures; his overwhelming and addictive and usually unproductive use of lures. This isn't meant to trash you lure lovers. I get it. I flyfished as a kid and tied my own lures from feather and string. But whitebait or live healthy shrimpies are hard to beat if you actually wanna catch fish And as an old man letting a Pilchard do all the work for me doesn't suck.

    New to the game

    That is not a bad idea You really need to talk to Captain Dave. His guide service is here. I ain't trying to talk anybody into spending money, but taking a good guide out one time - one that feels your education is as or more important than the fish they put you on - is worth years of hit-and-miss experience. I wrote a pretty good book about fishing skinny water, but even that masterpiece isn't worth one day with one good guide. And THEN thousands of hours trying out what you learn in that one day. He could also help you with any worth but insane idea you might have. He teaches GREAT classes. http://patrioticguide.com/

    Fishhook removal Trick

    These are from an "Archaic" indigenous site. The shafts of the hook are made from deer bone and the hook (barb?) are from 2 Possum penis. No kidding. I am sure they ate the possum before they took his most important body parts. They are around 5,000 years old.
