  2. German Shepherd

    A former Forum Member (BonefishBob) is looking for a home for his GS. Gorgeous, almost 3 years old AKC pedigree, male, not fixed. Dog is jealous of his young son... went after him twice trying to prevent him coming to him ( didn’t bite but scared him)
  3. Red Tide?

    Water level this weekend was extremely high inside Estero Bay and Spring Creek area. It was probably stirred up due to bad weather (I didnt go out) On Friday however, the beach was really nice, quite calm until the afternoon when winds shifted and picked up. By the way, no bait or signs of Snook or other predators on the beach. I,ll keep posting until I start catching... Then I'll shut up
  4. What's Really Important In Life..........

    Congrats Dino. Please send her my best wishes !!
  5. Red Tide?

    2 weeks ago In Bonita, Estero Bay, there was still some RT. I heard it had cleared.

  8. Culinary question

    I have heard before that if properly and promptly vacuum-packed, fish will taste the same as fresh. I almost never freeze fresh beef and never freeze fresh caught fish. Usually I only bring home fish when I plan on eating it the same day or within 24 hrs of caught. Don't have any personal experience with the use of Vacuum packed fresh anything. What are your comments on this matter ?
  9. Culinary question

    Does it matter what kind of fish? (Red, trout, snapper, Mahi...)
  10. FWC tripletail and sheepshead size changes

    Why freeze them when you can go get them fresh again next weekend!!

    Wow! Is that how it looks today? That's an impeccable looking beauty!! Grand kids may demand a change in platform soon. GLWS!
  12. Come to the marina now

    "Nothing stops a Mercury!" tops my list
  13. If they would only move the Prop higher, we wouldn't need the skeg !! It's the same with fishing back country, if your not getting snagged on the mangroves, you're not casting close enough !! By the way, always enjoy your pictures.
  14. Tampa bay tide Guru's

    Joe, skip school with the grandkids and take them fishing for 6 hrs, just don’t tell grandma
  15. No pictures... and you ate the evidence = never happened
  16. Caesar's Creek Speed Trap?

    Not for this one
  17. Chine walking Chittum!

    Not a poling skiff!!
  18. Went to Flamingo and camped out Saturday (despite Gvt shutdown) Everyone seemed to be doing the “winter fishing after few days of west wind “, with knocker rigs or jigs on the bottom with shrimp, in canals, creeks and Lake Ingraham. No mosquitoes, cool weather, plenty of action with black drum, trout, sheepshead, snapper and a thousand catfish
  19. Flamingo fishing in winter

    Like there's no boat that does everything well, there's no camper that does all well. This is a great toy for it's purpose, high end camping, towing a boat, and having a vehicle to move around without taking your home with you. . It's not a place to stay inside for extended periods, unless you"really like" the other person. We drove from Miami to Yellowstone in a smaller truck camper and had a great time. It gives you more choices I don't want to have a dedicated vehicle only for that purpose. A bigger truck (long bed dually) would allow bigger camper with more space and comfort, but is too big for me to drive and park in hospitals and office bdgs. Perfect for us to go away for a few days, take the dogs or the grandchildren to a campground with full hook ups and a bathroom (there's no privacy) and enjoy outdoor living.
  20. Flamingo fishing in winter

    Yes. That's the main reason why we picked this setup. Some campers are very short and don't overhang on the back. Some like the Lance 855 S, will need a 36" Tow Hitch extension and the beefed up suspension with air bags.
  21. Backwaters wake up

    Our last weekend in Bonita beach getting our place ready to rent it out After several weeks of poor results, today we had a fun day, fishing backwaters. Finally some winter pattern is showing We caught several Sheepshead and perfect size black drum. They were lucky we had steak planned and were released. Patty had the hot rod. Caught several small snookies, a nice over the slot fat Redfish and lost a bigger one to a broken hook. look at the back/shoulders on that fish!!
  22. Flamingo fishing in winter

    Yes, A. B & C loops are closed T loop was open
  23. Flamingo fishing in winter

    By the way, those are the closed loops, the T Trailer loop is open and in decent shape except for the lack of shade.
  24. Flamingo fishing in winter

    I see you found your "winterfest" bounty (drum, SH and snapper)very tasty meal !! (sheapshead is my favorite) That,s oyster bay isn't it? I wish I could get the Mojo again to do the back country and tiki camping !! How can I get my Lance camper there
