Re: Broken Rod

I took a rod back as well and they didn't ask any questions, now that I think about it, I even forgot my receipt.

They gave me store credit and I grabbed another off the shelf!

Re: changes could be coming to Sisters Creek kayak launch

I used the launch today, they didn't change much. The posts are still in the way so you can't back down to the beach area.

We ended up coming back in at the boat ramp and walking to get the truck.

I like it! I've never used an Emmrod but have been eyeing them for a while.

Re: Happy Hour Update - Big Green Egg Raffle

I'll be coming out for this one as well, I don't get off until 6 so I'll be a little late.

I've been eyeing one of the Big Green Eggs.

It appears to be vinyl? It stuck....for now!

Re: FWC Safety Check

If you read the above link, the purpose of the decal is to eliminate repeated safety checks. Helps FWC and helps you from being inspected repeatedly. Don't think you are required by law to display. The officer made it sound as though it's a requirement, he was very adamant on applying it in the rig...

I've known the rules since I started, I was just shocked to be required to have a decal.

Re: FWC Safety Check

Interesting - Do they have boats that can operate in less than a foot of water patrolling on a normal basis? I think they need to be cracking down on the nuisance boaters that are speeding through no wake / low wake zones. If I am fishing a hot bite, am I required to stop and go to them or are they...

FWC Safety Check

I was out fishing yesterday and got stopped by FWC. They checked my fish, bait, license, safety equipment, etc. They said that Florida is starting a new program that requires vessels to have a safety inspection and gave me a decal that I am required to stick on the front port side of my kayak above ...

Re: Live Shrimp Holder Hook

Got in touch with FWC and these are indeed illegal to use with live or dead natural bait while fishing for "certain species", I guess they will stay put away for now.

I launched there last weekend at low tide, it was easy and painless.

Re: Live Shrimp Holder Hook

Check the FWC regulations. I do not think you can use anything but single hooks for natural baits while inshore fishing in Florida. Good looking out, that hadn't even crossed my mind. Their website states that "use of multiple hooks in conjunction with live or dead natural bait is prohibited" on th...
