I've fished the coast a few times and will be back for more, I've cought tarpin over 100lbs. and sharks 200 to 300lbs. It's a hole new worold of fishing for me, and I'm loving it. Ya all take care now.

Hey, I heard you moved South! What are your plans with your place on the Island? We took Haatsie's pontoon out yesterday and it was pretty nice out. I just got back from the lake (noon) and it's calm out there with the lake looking like it's glassed over with ice. Pretty warm for Oct. 2nd. (upper 70's to lower 80's). Had a couple people stop in last night and they "spanked em" pretty good!! My neighbor let a 31.5 go a couple weeks ago. Take care and check in on us here at FM! cool.gif

cubed, sorry it took so long to respond. We took a drive down to the kees sunday and my truck broke down, It took four days to get a fuel pump. We sat on the beach drinking beer and fishing. Kee Largo is a good place to be stranded.

As for your question, I plan on keeping the cabin for a while. My brother and freinds are taking care of the place.

Yup, Key Largo is alright. I did some snorkling there many years ago in what I think was a State Park area? Wish I could go back in time and do that all over again and then stay there! Enjoy the weather as we are expecting some rain/snow on Wed. crazy.gif Later!

Islander, where are you living, near Orlando, Miami? I honeymooned at South shore resort, Captiva island. I would go back in a minute. Thinking when it comes time to retire or close to. Spend the winters(mid Nov.-Mar.)there, the rest here. Would like to check out hunting there or travel to Texas.

cubed, John Pennekamp state park is the place we camped while we were stranded, great diving and snorkeling on the corel reef and meny ship wrecks. We plan on going back for some more diveing.

Jim, we live in Sebring (about 100 miles south of Orlando). It's a small town, quiet part of the state, mostly farm land and lakes. I havn't been here long but I love it so far.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
