Re: Paddle questions

For what it's worth, I started out with a cheap paddle when I bought my Tarpon 120 last year. A few months ago I settled on a Werner Skagit CF. Bought all of it from BCO, and what the guys said above is spot on. I'd like to add one more piece of advice: surf the Werner website. They have a lot of go...

Re: New Classic catagory?

I've been kayak fishing less than a year, and this was my first Classic. I caught a single flounder, and was pleased I didn't get skunked. So I'm your basic rank noob offering my $0.02: @ Jud, Jessica, Craig, and everyone else who worked and donated stuff: Thanks for making my first tournament a fun...

Re: Want to try something new

I think m...

Re: New to kayaking

Welcome to the sport! I think you're being smart by recognizing that you have some limitations. That alone will help you stay out of trouble. I don't think your kids are to young to learn paddling if you stick to protected waters. There are some people here who take their kids fishing who could give...

Re: what takes classic?

Just so you know ...those beers are for after we get off the water ;) I typed that with my tongue planted firmly in my cheek, just tryin' to be funny. :D Though I expect I'll have a cold one or two Saturday evening, I try to stay safe on the water. I won't be out in the river because I don't consid...

Re: May 1st New bag Limit?

I thought the single hook rule referred to the rig rather than the hook itself. Growing up in SC I used to fish bait on a double drop rig that had a weight at the bottom and two leaders coming off the rig at different heights, each with it's own baited hook. So the double drop rig wouldn't be legal,...

Re: Red Size for Classic

Perhaps Jud, Jess, & Craig could put together a survey for this year's tournament where all those in attendance can "weigh in" their thoughts for future tournaments. Do it the democratic way, where the majority decides? Though putting it to a survey/vote might sound good, there's a risk that you'd ...

Re: Ponds at my house | Small mouth bass and a big miss on c

Smallmouth, Large mouth...were they fun to catch? If yes, then good! And good on ya!

I grew up fishing for bass, bluegills, and occasionally crappie in ponds and small lakes in South Carolina. Fun fishing!

Re: Palm Valley 4/4, wifes first keeper red

Sounds like a great day! I haven't caught any reds lately...might have to try Palm Valley. I still havent decided if her deciding she wants to fish is a blessing or curse...lol.. Is "yes" an available answer? I'll be taking my girlfriend out soon (just paddling, not fishing). We'll see how she likes...
