Re: Beach Snook

krash....have you ever fished any of the freshwater sloughs on Sanibel? I did a little engineering for a remodel house on Clam Bayou. I got to know the contractor who lives on Sanibel but the homeowner was not on site - I walked back to the bayou and it was an easy kayak launch. There are supposed t...

Beach Snook

I will start fishing the beach on Sanibel for snook weekly depending on a good incoming tide.

Fly fishing if it is not too windy. Will carry a small selection of deceivers, schminnows and Puglisi baitfish flies.

Most likely park at one of the Blind Pass parking lots.

I know Hurricane has many models. A Honda CRV is on my list but it will become my wife's car. And it is time to trade the 04 Chev...

Colorado Fly Fishing

The great early summer river fly fishing for trout should just be starting in the mountain and valley streams. Mayflies, caddis and stoneflies all active this time of year. Any reports???

Re: Required Safety Equipment

PFD is no problem.

But I do not normally carry flares or a horn while out fishing the shallows around Pine Island, Florida in my 10 ft long kayak.

Maybe I should to avoid a fine?
