  4. Boca Grande Area Red Tide Question

    Happy to report some nice bait pods and occasional snook on the Lover's key Beach area a week ago. Big contrast from a month ago!

    Always Nice ! were you guys in your usual neck of the woods or Flamingo?
  6. 4 hour fishing report

    I had not started the engine in almost 2 months and the tank was almost empty when i filled at Dion's I suspect that may have had something to do with the misfiring F 70. I'm kind of "mechanically challenged"
  7. 4 hour fishing report

    I also changed to a soft roll up cover that I can leave with the camper on It only moves back the center of gravity less than 2 inches, still in front of or above the rear axle I do not feel any difference on the ride. When hauling the Lance, it actually "tracks" better when I'm towing the boat. sorry about the sideways pictures
  8. 4 hour fishing report

    If I remove the cables that hold it, it folds down a few xtra inches (see 2nd picture) and fits fine under the camper however during hurricane Irma I had the bad idea of turning in the Onan generator and the exhaust melted the plastic molding on the tail gate (3rd one)
  9. 4 hour fishing report

  10. 4 hour fishing report

    Just chilling and so far no bugs, unless stepping on ant hill counts. @$%#
  11. Came this morning with the idea of setting camp This is the rig the plan was heading past the Capes and fish creeks on outgoing. the engine started misfiring and we had to change plans. Ended up fishing flats closer to the marina. Caugt some jacks, several reds under 20” one over 30” that self released while looking for the phone. of course Patty outdid me with a snook on top, 27.5”, Very lucky snook, 0.5" longer and he was fried!! I haven’t had snook in over 10 years.and no better place to eat one than camping. After short 4 hours we were out of the water and setting camp. Had a great day despite the missing engine. After being on the west coast with the red tide, , seeing live fish again was a treat. Of course the only reason she out fished me is that I’m handicapped due to my fractured shoulder last year😜😎
