    F5 you did well, considering the conditions. I hear boat ramps are starting to get crowded most everywhere these days.

    Port St Joe

    I agree with you guys, trout and reds have been very slow start this year compared to last few. I fish mostly Dog Island to Turkey Point and its been tuff catch’n. I’ll keep patchin’ the ole ‘93MA every year, a lot cheaper than a new one. Got all new wiring,switches,elec trim tabs , ect this past fall. Still fishes like a new one.

    ski behind redfisher 18

    Definitely use the D rings and tow harness. Platforms are expensive to repair.

  9. My buddy Henry and I took off with his camper and my ‘93MA18 to ENP. This is his 1st time fish’n there. Day 1 was East Cape , thru Ingraham, to Middle Cape and out to Sandy. We caught snook ,reds, black drum and plenty of trout. Day 2 we chose inside thru Joes River out to Little Shark, back outside and ‘round the Cape. We boated snook , trout , and reds. Day 3 sent up back up Whitewater to Harney- if you’ve never been, it needs to be in your bucket. Fish’n was just as good, maybe a little better- snook, reds, trout, mangroves, spanish and bonus triple tail. Our trip was perfect. Round ever

    Ultimate trolling motor set-up for MA 18.5

    As you can see, I have Terrarova 48” on my ‘93MA18.5. A 60” will fit perfectly just clearing the fuel filler . Yes ,the Ulterra would be a great convenience and I think most of the old issues have been worked out. I do use two group 27 wet cell batteries .

    New 4 stroke - boat rides stern heavy

    Fatherof4, sorry it took so long to get back with you, I’ve been running from some hurricanes! I’m sure losing that JP helped some weight and porposeing issues. Mine does sit a little heavy so I do put the deck plugs in only if there is more than myself aboard. Come to Carrabelle, we’ll go fish’n .
  13. October 17 & 18 October 24 & 25 October 31 & November 1 Gulf state and Federal waters for private recreational anglers . State-for-hire operations are limited to Gulf state waters only.
  14. Dates to be announced soon
  15. Water was like dirty coffee after Sally. Fished with Jill and Chris Brogdon off Dog Island and Carrabelle. We caught and released a dozen or so upper slots, did keep three to blacken .

    Pamlico Sound Area Reds

    Those bruisers should start showing up here in East Pass next month. Two nice catches, right there!
  17. Had to find clean water to find any fish. Fished Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 2-3’ over grassy flats. Popping corks , 18” leader was the best rig keeping bait drifting over the grass. St George and Dog Island flats are on fire .

    New 4 stroke - boat rides stern heavy

    Fatherof4 , I also repowered my 93 MA with Yam150 six years ago. Yes it is 100 lbs heavier than the 175 two stroke I also took off. I’m Running 19” 3 blade for hole shots, and yes you give up top end. Mine tops out at 42mph. Never had a jack plate, but I do have to use a little tab to keep from porpoising. I’m also in panhandle area- Carrabelle Good luck

    Triple tails in Apalachicola Bay

    Very nice, what area are you fish’n? I’m out of Carrabelle River and see quite a few triple tails coming in .

    Grouper fishing has been great

    Great catch !! we have been getting our share ,
  22. Took a fish’n buddy out for his first red fish trip. Slight breeze, water temp 84, all the conditions were great. The fish really cooperated too. It didn’t take long for the reds to bite, we ended up with 2 upper slots and 3 nice flattys . Crooked River Grille did a nice job preparing our flounder.

    Good ½ day fish’n

    Thanks guys. I very rarely target trout and not having my attorney present , so I missed that new regulation. edited!!
  24. Took my neighbor Robert on quick redfish trip. His 1st red was 26 1\2 “ . We caught 2 more trout, one just over 20” for dinner. Wind was light at 10 knots, water temp 73 degrees. The bite was very slow even though tide was rising . And that’s why we call it fish’n !!
  25. Fished out of Carrabelle with grandson Logan and his friend. They each caught an upper slot red and Logan managed a nice black drum. After fish’n couple hours ,they explored the old hurricane vessels on Dog Island beach. Those 3 fish made for a great fish fry that night.
