See, even the Wolfpack can't stand New Jersey and New York.

Hey, when we run out of bait, we need to send the old farts down to catch some. We don't have many fish that small.

Plus, they can scope out their retirement digs.

But Kross, once the striper population crashes in the next couple of years you'll only have bluefish left to fish for. Our snook population was crushed by the big freeze a few years back, those little snook they were catching are the future.

Unless they can clean up the Chesapeake so that the oysters can survive and stop the over harvesting of the bunker (another filter feeder) there won't be a recovery like after the crash of 78/79.

The thing is, we have bass all over this year. And the bunker numbers have improved. It's the blues that seem to be on a down cycle. I do miss them - my favorite!

Also, don't forget the fluke, albies, and this year bluefin tuna made a nice showing.

What I want from the south is bonefish and tarpon. But you folks don't seem to get them, at least not much.

If you want to catch bonefish and tarpon you have to pretty much target them exclusively which many kayak fishermen are not willing to do becaues if you don't find them you catch nothing at all.

Let me ask you this, how many small schoolie bass have you caught recently?

You stoopid Yankees are welcome to come down, just don't drive slow with your flashers on and tell us how much better it is up North. And stow your red Speedos with white knee socks too. And your plaid Bermuda shorts. And your pasty-white fat chicks.

I used to get tarpon all the time, what about snooks, redfish, jacks and seatrout?

God I miss the fishing down there. No terminal taclke,w tied everything straight and no damn dry suit / waders just shorts and flip flops!

Going back this year around August. Planning on an Everglades trip maybe Mud lake in the canoe I left over there.

Hi Guys and Gals
I would like to say that it is very important to chose your traveling companions when on a fishing trip. I was lucky to be blessed with some of the best. Fish, eat, sleep, repeat. To Chris, Charlie, and Joe, it was a great time.
Everybody on the same page.F---ing beautiful.

Meeting up with Vivian, Terri, PrincessRunAmok(Marie) and her husband Fishon(Peter) was one of the treats of the trip. Your knowledge of the area and senses of humor were most appreciated. Marie thanks for the warning about the gator that didn't like where I was, I thought it was a bird or frog or something other then a gator.I am not used being so low on the food chain when fishing.

During my stay I got some close encounters with dolphins that were playing around my yak, like I wasn't even there. I got between a manatee and his escape route and was lifted out of the water and turned 90 degrees. A real underwear cleaner if you know what I mean. 7 or 8 different species of fish, I am glad I didn't hook a shark. It is really something not only realizing your are no longer the top of the food chain, but know that everything you encounter down here bites, stings or is toxic in some way or another( and thats only luna).

I am posting some of the fishing porn video (click on it)of the dolphins to tempt you all to visit this place. Put it on your bucket list.
The internet connection here is to slow for me to do more so you'll all have to wait till I come back north, MAYBE

Tons. Especially in the fall.
