    Surprise

    Had a buddy hit a school of peanut dolphin in 25 foot under a pallet 2 weeks ago. Loaded the cooler in his pathfinder

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Installed some red led speaker rings, red underwater lights (shadowcaster SCM 10), and some red led strips inside the powerpoles. Very happy with the results

    Freshwater fishing?

    If you are fishing mid day, I'd be throwing a 10 inch junebug worm (zoom ol monster is my favorite) and just dragging it on the bottom Texas rigged with 1/4 or 1/8 oz. Weight. You can mix in some rattletraps/lipless crankbaits but mud fish love those.

    For all you prop junkies put there . . .

    Geeviam and mulligan nailed it. There were some changes in management at merc racing propellers and it seems since then it's really easy to get one that isn't perfect on all blades. I've sent them back with casting flaws, out of round, etc. I ran a stiletto on my lt20 and grip was not its strength, so I'm interested to see how it does now that you had it worked

    the most abrasive resistant leader

    As far as brand, yes. I have seen noticeably better abrasion resistance comparing seaguar vs berkeley

    the most abrasive resistant leader

    Seaguar premier 25 is the best I have found. Gold label gets pretty thin. If you are consistently breaking off then your drag is most likely too tight. Premier is the best I have found for tarpon too Retying after each snook even if it is a dink is pretty common.

    2007 Hewes Redfisher 16 Garage Kept Great Condition

    This is my old boat and can attest to both I and the original owner keeping it in our garages. I fished this boat a couple months while my new one was being built and it was great. GLWS.

    Spot or EPIRB?

    I have a rescue me plb that I keep on my life vest. A little smaller than the acr so I went that route.

    Busy weekend

    2 for 2 off the beach this morning. Didn't see a single fish until 9. Had jet skiers and cruisers run over the pod twice. 1 are a crab and the other a pinfish

    We found the same thing. Got out there at 7 and didn't see a single one. I thought for sure that east wind was gonna get them going

    I should be headed off the beach Thursday with that east wind. Hoping to get into them pretty good

    Busy weekend

    Are you really even fishing if a jetski doesn't buzz you on the flats? Up in Crystal river it was the airboats. I had an airboat run between me and the shoreline, cut me off, etc. Some of the worst etiquette Ive ever seen came from those guys this weekend

    Ouch! Ive had a little trouble the 2 times I went off the beach this year. Both times struggled to find any tarpon so figured I would hit the pass on the crab flush. I may bounce off the beach sometime this week or weekend

    Busy weekend

    Fished the IFA redfish tour in crystal river Saturday with a tough tide/moon phase. That place is downright scary to fish, nasty boulders, rocks, etc. I will say the fish are much more cooperative, and sight fishing them was pretty easy. Watched a 40lb cobia bust a mullet out of the water and eat it before I could throw a bait at it! Ended up sticking 2 right fish and as luck would have it we managed to win 1st overall and big fish. Went out Sunday for tarpon and they are here in full force! Egmont was scattered fish and inconsistent so hopped over to bean point and got 1 before the wind picked up and we left. Pass crabs were hard to come by but finally got a few and that's what did the trick. All in all a great weekend!
