    I tend to use indicators more then historical data to find inshore fish.
     
    I do keep a journal for Tarpon and find it invaluable. With Tarpon being so moon and tide phase oriented a journal can make or break a season and you can schedule your days off based on your journal for the following year.

    fishbytes got a reaction from lkuba in largest shark you have encountered on you kayak   
    Tarpon fishing off IRB two weeks ago (Father's day) Hooked into about a 9 ft. Hammer. After about a 30 minute fight, I got him within 10 feet of the me, he turned, came straight at my yak and bumped it. Could have grabbed his dorsal if I wanted to. Needless to say, I cut the leader immediately and called it a day.That changed my mind about going alone for tarpon. A fresh pair of undergarments were in order after that event! :ohmy:Also landed about a 10 ft nurse that day...

    All you inshore guys who don't think this affects you...couldn't be more wrong.
     
    I'm an inshore angler too, but I am paying attention and getting involved.
     
    Why?
     
    1) This sets a precedent which will affect more species and which will ultimately impact inshore species and fisheries.
     
    2) This will drive even more guys out of the big offshore boats and into skiffs, flats boats, and bay boats.  Those guys won't stop fishing...they'll just stay inshore where its cheaper, safer, and where they can keep more of what they catch.
     
    3) You think its crowded inshore now...just wait...you haven't seen anything yet...

    fishbytes got a reaction from phil030 in What Do You Do?   
    Awesome info Dave. Really appreciated.  Great topic too Phil.  I also used to chase spots with little success.  I am now trying my best to learn the places closest (convenience) to me intimately as you stated.  Especially with time being so hard to come by. 
     
    I know the fish are there and the places I am trying to learn are not nearly as popular as say a Weedon Island, which is what I prefer. 
     
    I just realized one of my big mistakes is not keeping a log.  That's changing immediately. 
     
    Thanks again!

    Augi, your post inspired me, as I had not fished downtown in a bit. Went last night for a few and got a small snook. Then walked down to the new splash park they just opened to meet up with the family.Thank you!

    I believe they might... they have four bolts that hold the base on. We could try if you have the pedestal. I will try to post a pic of the base tomorrow to see what you think. Sorry, but don't have the time to do it today....What area are you in? I'm in TampaHere's the base....

    I have 3 white folding seats that I took off my boat. Not brand new but in pretty good condition. They swivel and can detach from the base if you want to remove them. They need to be mounted to something though.I'd let all 3 go for $60

    If you determine the rod you want, take a look on Amazon. I have found some great deals on fishing gear and most offer free shipping. BTW, I signed up for the Amazon credit card and got an instant $50 gift card. 1. Ordered a reel 2. Applied the gift card3. Cut up the credit card.
