  1. You actually will not want to wear your waders kayaking docks at night. To deep of water. If you end up out of the yak for some reason good luck. Waders fill - cold water - see ya later.
  2. Bump for a good west coast starter boat w/ 4s yami. A little wire clean up and could make this boat look pretty.
  3. Coming in 8th during the 2014 Salty Fly. First year of fishing the tournament and did it on kayaks with RawDaws. Maybe not best catches but deff most exciting.
  4. 30lb to 50lb mono - 4 to 8ounce lead - uni to uni knot keep weight from sliding down - 6-8ft 60lb flouro - 6/0 circle hook. Some people use swivel instead of knot I just like to keep as much terminal tackle out of water as possible.
  5. Did you win the lottery or something? Go from sea fox to Stella's and a Shaeffer...well done
  6. Solid shell key red. I think I got more sea sick watching that video then I have/will ever get on the water.
  7. That thing belongs on leather seats.
  8. The lure to catch a trout is different than the lure to catch a grouper. So is the reel and rod.Hire a guide.
  9. I'm not saying it's right to let tournament guys do it and not everyone else but it's what the law say.
  10. Well done.Just FYI - right or wrong you can only cull fish in a tournament.
  11. yes..if you are thinking about netting to try and jump a late season tarpon - net them away from the drift you will be making.
  12. Agreed that's why I fly fish.I was referencing the fish having large amts of blue crab in his stomach...and using them for bait It's more of a hunt when you're on the flats. You see the fish' date=' pitch your bait as quietly as possible and hope it gives a positive reaction. It's a very rewarding experience for me' date=' and I love it :thumbsup:[/quote'']
  13. I fish docks that I know hold reds w/ live blue crab. Bite is usually fast.Never had much luck on live blue crab on flats. Only cut in 4ths.
  14. Always good to give credit where credit is due...Ordered a custom Tim Wade net earlier this summer based on my continued struggles netting threads in deeper water. I called Tim - explained where and exactly what I am looking for in a net as well as my ability and willingness to throw x amount of weight. 2 weeks later a net showed up at my door. Mind you I called him during the process to check on time frame and each time he answered and gave me eta immediately. Called him after to talk about net care and should I soak in fabric softener to loosen etc etc. he answers and is willing to talk every time.I ordered a custom 12ft net with extra lead per foot and it ran me just over $200. The comparable black pearl goes just over $300. Great guy to deal with and the net works!! Loaded well w/ threads at skyway this weekend w/ tide moving in 15-18ft of water.Someone I would and will give my business to going forward.
  15. Yep as fast as it turned on it turned off. Let the post season games begin.
