  1. I think Saturday July 19th would be better only because it's a Saturday and then after we could all go to Frenchy's or Ozona Blue and dip in the pool and reward ourselves. I want to say about a month ago we went the the first island north of the Dunedin Causeway to just try something new and I was SHOCKED at what I saw. There was an air mattress and several blankets along with a hole dug in the ground full of soda cans and random trash that looked as if it was a camp site. I wish I had someone to call that had a boat that could just pull up and I could load it full of trash just to get that island clean! Timmy, why don't you reach out to our local captains and see if they could help, I know they are probably on charters....but maybe they can do half days and help with the loads....I'll talk to our fishing club and post it on our website.

  2. I always love hearing people taking out their kids, my mom used to take me to the pier but we never caught much. Good for you and your son to spend the first day of summer soaking up the sun and kayak catching fish. You always learn something when you go out fishing, like re-positioning the cooler...that stinks that he jumped out but there are going to be many more opportunities to bring some home.Thanks for your report! Happy Summer!

  3. I don't have patience for artis but I tried a new top water that he got me and I just can't get the motions that are needed..... I like jigheads and gulp ... that way the stupid pin fish can't steal my bait and I can actually catch something ... maybe a Monster 3X will do the trick (hint hint) :)My arm started hurting from walking the dog and I ended up giving up and just enjoying the calm FLAT water and watching nature ... I sometimes wish that I could be a bird and just fly over and scoop down to catch some keepers...Sooner than later we will have to meet up...and I don't like tea so you two need to come up with another metaphor ;)

  4. Let us know what they say when you go. I have a friend that has a canoe that his dad gave him like 15 years ago and he was given a motor for it and only keeps it in the skinny waters now but I would love for him to be able to come to an island with us and fish but its just to risky being out in the open. When we got our kayak from Bill Jackson's and then purchased a motor for it, I maybe went to the DMV 3 or 4 times because they were always saying I didn't have the right information.I ended up having to call the manufacturer and getting a "birth certificate" for the kayak with the serial numbers included on the certificate. Then going to Bill Jackson's having them write a letter on their letterhead saying they sold us that specific kayak with the serial numbers included with the receipt to show we paid the taxes on it and then ending up getting the title for it and basically every category was considered Other Vessel ....

  5. We got two from the Bucs 5K that we did but Tim won't wear it because it's pink and red. I have been trying to find some that are solid colors ... thanks for this topic because I was gonna ask because he went out fishing on Saturday and the nats were horrible and one ended up going up his nose and staying there for a while...he couldn't get it out :) :smiley-laug I will check out that website ...Thanks again!!

  6. Our neighbors just got back from the Keys and brought us about 5-7 lbs fillets and said to smoke them ... Not that we don't have the time to smoke them but I would rather try something 'easier' for the first time of eating it since I have never tried them before...And Ideas??

  7. Okay, so I can be completely off base here but wasn't this just was announced officially on May 5th from FWC? This occurred on the the 15th. Yes, that's plenty of time for his mate to re-rig his gear and time for him to read the new law that was just placed but I think that should count for something. And from this report it's the first time he was using it, which also should have been a warning. "Translation: Use the

  8. Of course he caught them all ... I didn't even get a hit!!! I did however figure out that I'm better at live bait and get annoyed and frustrated all to quickly with artificial unless it's a spoon because that's just reel, reel, reel .. not slow reel, thump, let it sit, slow reel ... that's too much.But I will try again this weekend with it....
