Re: They don't get that big by being stupid

Sometimes it is really great to take a beating, and have the Fish win. It's not always about numbers, but more the experience! You won't soon forget that one, but will remember "Her" with a smile .... That ain't all Bad, is it?

Re: Rudder Question!!

Rivers present different problems than tidal flow. In the rivers that I fish "up nort" in Arkansas people sometimes use a "Drag Chain". Problem with these is proper length for the Flow, and the size of the craft. I have used a 18"-24" Heavy Chain (1 1/2 link) for a 20' flat bottom boat, and a 8"-12"...

Re: The Price of Snook

Believe the price is for whole Fish, it was the only one in the Seafood section. Place was called Commercial Mexico Market and they had everything! We needed a coffee pot, so .... Must be a Walmart division

Re: Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge, Milton, Delaware

Most of the locals know the better spots, some will go to Public Ponds, but it seems they have access to more private water. With less pressure probably better Fishing. Haven't had another chance since. Will update when and if!

Re: new member/ hunting kayak info

Personal opinion, buy used for first Kayak, cheaper and talk to seller. There is a lot of "Local Knowledge". Look on the Classifieds posted for a good deal. 2cents, please!

There are ways to get into Cross Bayou, not all of them are good/easy tho. 1. Park St, South of 62nd Ave, across from a Shopping center. Actual Launch is a side of the Road but is very public, I have never heard of problems. Decent side of the road parking. Paddle South until you reach the Old Power...

Stocked fish run between 8 - 12". I have caught 3" Browns so some are wild ....

Re: White River, Cotter Arkansas ... Caddis Hatch and the Tr

Well, the Massive portion of the Caddis Hatch has come and gone, fish were caught and released. Mostly on size 18-20 Dry Flies, 16-20 Midges. Several nice afternoon sessions with only one that just didn't pan out. I'll be back for the late Summer Hopper Season! Time for me to start toward Delaware (...
