Great catch! If you are going to cook it, I know that they make a really good smoked fish dip :thumbright:

Re: Is a depth finder worth it?

I agree with what Tadpole said :beg: . I think a unit can be a great tool to have, but don't think it's the answer to "finding fish." Fishing at night for inshore creeks, it shows me how skinny the water is I'm paddling in which can be an important factor when there is a falling tide. The chartplott...

Secure Your Vehicle/Trailer

I was parked at Jim King’s Boat Ramp which is a well lit and secure parking lot in my opinion. When I came back I noticed my rod tube on top of my vehicle which was secured on with lock nuts was loose and slightly sideways. My hitch has a lock and my trailer has a lock on it as well. Heads up to tho...

Re: Salt run

Nice report. How heavy was the traffic on the water there? Did you take out where you put in?

Re: New kayaker, could use some help

I know that tide and I have paddled against it. I have also been caught south of the dam at Guana at low tide. I stayed in the kayak and scooted up the slop, because I knew if I tried to step out I would sink and probably slice my feet on buried oysters. When fishing a new area I like to scout it at...

Re: Automotive Paint & Body Shop recommendations?

Gerber Collision and Glass on PHILLIPS, not San Jose. They did an excellent job on my Santa Fe. Paint job was perfect. I’ll look up the guy that took care of it if you want

Re: Offshore kayak trips

I've mentioned earlier somewhere that I'm new to the BTB. I carry out a drift anchor and I am considering putting together a set up very similar to the one in the following video. What do you guys think?

Re: Fishing off Fernandina

I was out in the surf out at Jax Beach just north of the pier (8/9) chasing the Tarpon smashing the pods. I didn’t catch one, but some other kayaker on the water did and it was insane watching it jump and drag him out. I caught to sharks about 3’ in length that day. I am new to BTB and I am only goi...
