Re: rod/reel combo under $100

One of the new carbon Ugly Stiks, and a Shimano Sedona would probably suffice and be a decent setup for your budget.

*buying the real cheap stuff doesnt really save you $ in the longrun when you factor they last a fraction the time and will be replaced often......

Re: Beach Launch in Fernandina 8/12/2016

Tarpon have some sharp jaws so don't go too light on leader....... or too short to prevent tail whips. A big tarpon can be 6'+ long. I'd simplify your whole rig. If you want to go down to 60#, I'd make it a 6' + leader, lose the swivel, and tie it with a double uni knot (it can be a "wind-on" if the...

Re: Slightly Offshore kayaking possibilities

I have a question about Kayaking fishing south of this area. My boys and I did a center console charter out of Lake Worth inlet in March. No sooner did we clear the inlet we had Flying fish all over the place. I am talking maybe a mile or so off the beach. maybe not even that. Anyhow my boys got th...

Re: Matanzas Advice for Thursday

If you're looking to chase 'poons and pogy pod predators, your best bet would be to launch from the beach access ramp just north of the bridge....... to avoid said currents in inlet. Unless you REALLY like paddling against ripping current. :bom: or want to spend the time to wait for the tide to swit...

Re: Striking out

It's been HOT so you gotta fish EARLY...... I've had some frustrating runs the 2 times I fished last week. On the 6th, I found fish in Salt Run (assuming flounder) but they were focused on the mass amount of SMALL minnows....... huge schools of them. Couldnt get them to eat shite, and that includes ...

Re: Kayak Hoist systems

Tim, I use one to hang my Cuda 12 from the ceiling. I think I got it from Dicks It's a little bit of a PIA sometimes, but overall works well and is alot better that what I had before (which was fine with my 1st kayak that was much lighter (perception caster) although I don't hoist all the way from t...

Re: Flounder Tips?

I think Pelicier will probably be too hot for flounder, maybe near the mouth of the ICW
You should be able to find some around the 206 oyster bars.
Paddle tails / swimmers on a jighead

but I'll admit, I'm no flounder slayer ;)

Re: New to Kayak Fishing the St Augustine/Vilano/Matanza are

It's been HOT, so best bets are fish early or near dusk...... otherwise near deeper spots off ICW or closer to the inlets (more water flow). if there's an early morning lowtide, try fishing around some oyster mounds, high tide try some banks / grass Go with your favorite soft plastics or gulps, and ...

Re: OT; thoughts on Gheenoe for fishing with dog

A couple of years ago 2 good friends of mine won the NE Cobia Shootout. 1st prize was a tricked out Gheenoe (the wider one, I'm not too familiar with them). Well they're both licensed charter captains and each have a Pathfinder. They debated on selling it and splitting the $$, but after using it, th...

Re: After Work BTB

Keep an eye on the PM seabreeze........ comes up fairly strong when it gets hot. Not much of a hazard or surf creator, but a PIA.

and especially PM T-storms (although been pretty dry at the beach)
