Re: Sarasota, Long Boat Key Guides ?

Not impressed

To see the thread memorializing JayB has been removed from these pages. He created this site and made it what it was, there was a lot of love and respect poured out on that thread in honour of our fallen brother.

Re: Pasco County

Great advice from Pip, pick a spot fish often and fish it at all stages of the tide. One of the best pieces of advice I was ever given, was from the Merrill Chandler "The Canoeman" when I first came to live here in the Florida. "You can't say you fished a spot until you have fished it at every stage...

Re: Favorite Rod/Reel For West Coast flats fishing

Loomis GL2 8-17 (medium power) fast Action
