Cool stake out pole. I was going to look at pictures and it said I have to join. So when I get back inside from working on my fish cleaning table I will join. Good to hear from you Mr Gumdrops.

That took awhile to figure out how to use that my fishing pictures thing.
How have you been? How did you turn the point on the end. Do you have a lathe? I'm back. Are you retired yet? :shock: :shock: :shock:

I am moving into retirement home on July 1st at Brooksville FL. Next week I have an annual fishing trip with the Northwest Missouri Amateur Fishing Society. Crappie is the main fish. You have bait fish bigger than crappie. Too darn cold to use the Outback.

My new Outback fish has not really been used but has been prepared for Florida. Anchor trolley, stake out pole, sail, sailing rudder, hobie live well, gps/fish finder, rod extenders and scallop season begins the day I move in. Too say that I am excited about salt water fishing would be an understatement. :D :D

Hey mrgd,
Congrats on getting into salt water fishing. The great thing about the salt is that you just never know what might be on the end of your line from one day to the next. Have fun!!

Apalach

I don't know about tuna, but tarpon is big in the area I am moving. The area is known as the “Nature Coastâ€

Hey mrgd,
Yep--I know the Nature Coast well since it is located just south of the Forgotten Coast where I live. As you noted, it is a great area for kayak (and other) fishing. You are lucky to be moving there since you will be able to tackle one of my favorite Florida game fishes, the snook. Unfortunately, they don't get as far north as the Forgotten Coast because, like their favorite habitat the red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle), it gets too cold for them in the winter up this way. Good luck with your move and your new "career"!
Best,
Dick

Apalach as in Apalachicola? Maybe no Snook but you have Apalachicola oysters. I have never caught a Snook but saw a large one while Scuba diving last summer. Very impressive fish and from what I have read it is very good on the table. I am looking forward to catching one.
Later,
Mike

Close, but nein. "Apalach" as in Apalachee Bay, my main fishing area here on the Forgotten Coast. Named after the original inhabitants, the Apalachee (or Apalache) tribe of Native Americans, who used to populate this coast. And, in fact, we still have long stretches of the Forgotten Coast that remain just as it was hundreds of years ago with no houses, businesses, marinas, or settlements of any kind--nuthin' except National Wildlife Preserves and great fishing!
