  7. I keep seeing ads in Craigslist for this place, Fishing Supply liquidators at the Oldsmar Flea Market. the ad shows some really cheap prices and a lot of giveaways,.. just figured that I would see if anyone has firsthand info before I drive in from Lakeland. Thank You for the feedback Patrick

    Cleaning Rods And Reel From Saltwater

    luckily this was a cheap spinning reel,. so when I broke it down to clean deep,. there wasn't any evidence of saltwater inside the housing at all, cleaned the spool, wiped down, light oil,. and all appears good! definitely a lesson learned moving forward. hopefully we'll win some gear tomorrow at St. Pete. (and a Kayak) Thank You once again for the input!!!

    Cleaning Rods And Reel From Saltwater

    well,.. first thing I did was rinse with fresh water,. I figured that it was better than it sitting with saltwater.. luckily it's a low dollar rig,. so I guess that we'll open it up tonight and see how it looks. Thank You for the replies,. hopefully they will touch on this at the St Pete seminar,.. lol,
  11. I recently took my 8 year old wading in from gandy causeway,. and now have a rig that was submerged in salt water,. any special cleaners or techniques that you can recommend?
  12. I am looking to take my 8 year old out for his first trip on a party boat this weekend,. for a 1/2 day trip, but everything I am seeing is going to run about $100.00 for the 2 of us,. anyone know of anything cheaper around? I remember seeing some boats that had a "kids" special trip,. was like 2 hours and was really cheap. Thanks everyone. -- Patrick

    Suggestions for starting place

    I appreciate the feedback from all. I am working on learning how to fish here, and take the kids, and teach them all at once,.. This is a far cry from the Fluke fishing i grew up doing in the atlantic off the coast of NJ. it will be an interesting summer, but i am determined that I am going to get rid of the BS excuses and get out there. Thanks Again!!Pat
