  1. congrats! well done!!! Its so good to see other lady anglers succeeding.
  2. Phil brought me to this site a couple of years ago. I loved it and still like TOF, but yes, Facebook has changed the world. Sharing exact locations...a ... NO. But I am one of those who asked about lures. It was a way to learn. I didn't feel that was creating an issue. As a matter of fact, I post a number of photos with the lure still in the fishes mouth. Really don't see the harm in that. And Fish Brain, a really fast way to see what people are catching. You can set the Location to Private, so NO ONE knows were you caught the fish. You can chat with people all over the world. I just started to use the app Alex and I enjoy reading the stories and seeing the fish.
  3. Dave, where did you find them? can you get them in the Tampa area?
  4. thanks everyone. for some reason I cant make the "like" button work.
  5. thanks Phil and Andy. I had a good time fishing with awesome people. Sometimes just getting out there is what its all about. I'm going to pick up more of those KWiggler paddle tails. I just bumped it off the bottom, like a shrimp, but it had a little more action and really attracted the reds, I like trying different arties.
  6. great report. they all seem to be hiding lately.
  7. OakbeachInn, try the locally owned shops. Two of my favorites are Tampa Fishing Outfitters and the two sister stores, Tarpon Fishing Outfitters and St. Petersburg Fishing Outfitters. I fish with Diawa Reels, (no I'm not sponsored). 4 inshore Spinning, 2 off shore spinning and my two new casting reels for bass. All purchased at Tampa Fishing Outfitters. And as an added PLUS, the staff knows the products they sell and can show you the differences between products. Also love Bill Jacksons, but they have a little less inventory.
  8. I won those balloons from this site last year and took them to Pompano. They did well. Gary, are you going to have a kayak division and/or limit how far a boat can run?
  9. Jbdba01, excellent description and photos. thanks for the advise. I thought you just had to buy a new spoon, so I stopped using them.
  10. Nice report and photos. Snook are getting closer to slot. Keep them healthy
  11. that is awesome...thanks for the post
  12. Started out last week heading to the East shore area. We fished the out going tide, me putting away my arties and attempting live shrimp. Rubin caught his first Red on an Artie! Great start the new. The flats then erupted and Dave had a nice red on. she was a 27" fighter. me, ah well, lets say I should have stayed with my arties. ended up with 4 or 5 rays, puffer fish, cat fish and some monster lady fish. Next was a try a little further south. After only a couple of casts, Derick Burgos jumped the biggest Snook I have ever seen on a DOA CAl. MONSTER she jumped 3 times and two big runs....then broke his 25pd leader. Derick estimated she was over 45". later I did find a few trout and Derick took home a nice red. ok, I knew that Snook was on the flats, went back a couple of days later...bad tide (yep that's what I'm saying lol) found some reds, and more trout, but not the monster snook. Red and Trout were on a 12 fathom paddle tail. Met up with Henri White on Saturday and headed to Dunedin. I was going to try out a soft plastic I had not used before..Called KWiggler...you bass guys will know about this. We followed the mullet and each ended up with 2 reds CPR and Henri took home a 19" red on a spook Jr. yesterday, headed to north shore with David and Luis...David swore the wind would not be an issue. Well it was...lol. Fished a new area, found some trout, flounder and a ton of puffer fish...I was getting cold, so we left early. all in all a great trip around the Bay! Bent rods and Tight lines!
  13. CA Richardson, of "Flats Class", will be the guest speaker for BACKs Fishing clubs, January 19th meeting. The meeting begins at 6:30 at Bill Jacksons. Hot dogs and Chips for everyone!

  18. going out in my Yak tomorrow to see if I can find them in-shore.
  19. I just read an OpEd in the "Florida Sportsman" by Karl Wickstrom. There is an all-day symposium on January 13th in Orlando. Wickstrom feels that the whole state should adopt a unifrom Slot and closure season. The slott size would be 28-33 inches (altantic is an inch different) and the dates would be from December 1 through January 31; as well as June 1st through August 31. Your thoughts.
