Re: Hey Guys

I enjoyed Malta many years ago. Friends of mine are sailing (actually they finally left the boat in Croatia) the area and spent some time there as well. Rough life. :)

Re: Went shrimping

Everyone and their brother was on Shands Pier tonight. Got there too late to score a primo spot. Wouldn't have mattered much, though. My casting sucks. I barely covered the bottom of my bucket. :( I did manage to catch a catfish, tiny trout (I think), misc small fish, several crabs, and three other ...

Re: Went shrimping

Bummer. Glad I didn't make the trek I guess. I was thinking about heading out there tonight, though.

Re: Yak for my boy

Glad I found this thread. My son's (6) been asking about a yak but I'm not sure how far he can paddle before petering out. Might have to give it a shot, though.

Re: shrimping

So I'm a complete newb but I can't seem to go anywhere lately without hearing people talking about filling buckets of shrimp. I guess you just throw a cast net out? I understand the limit is 5 gal per person correct?

Re: Tenkara

Ernie, I think you're right about the bigger fish. My main goal is to have something for backpacking but I'd love to be able to use it on some trout around here. I guess time will tell how it'll work in that regard. I'm not sure about using a regular fly line. I can't find it at the moment but I thi...

Re: Tenkara

Yes, do keep us posted, I'll be interested how it works out. I'm assuming you got your rod from Tenkara USA? No. There's another vendor . They have a smaller selection but are more affordable for someone like me who's never even tried fly fishing. :) The 9'6" I bought was part of their 2-yr anniver...

Re: Tenkara

Hopefully I'll be able to let you know soon about the reds. :)

I'm still getting the hang of it. Once I do that I'll head out in the yak. For now the retention pond is fun since my son can join me. I have to say this little rod is responsive. Even the smallest bluegill feels like a monster. :eek:

Tenkara

I decided to try my hand at Tenkara fly fishing and picked up a 9'6" rod on sale. It's very nice and incredibly light which is perfect for future hiking trips. I had a chance to try it out yesterday in the retention pond. http://images.idratherbehiking.com/fishing/tenkara/fish-on-640.jpg On the firs...

Re: Tenkara

That's kind of what I was afraid of. It's been so long since I've done any serious fishing I'm starting all over. My main activity is hiking and I'd love to pass some time on the trail fishing when practical. I like the simplicity and extreme lightweight aspect of tenkara but it won't do me much goo...

Tenkara

Is anyone doing this style of fly fishing? I didn't see any posts when I searched. I've been thinking of giving it a try but don't know how viable it is around NE FL.
