    Yeah it's awesome. So many options right nearby. They also have the hookup with a mobile bait service that'll motor right up to them and deliver live bait. The guides know the guy pretty well so they...

    We just pedaled about 1-3 miles out, following contours. They may do mothership trips, but there really isn't a need. Winds do force them to stay inshore sometimes though. Those week long trips sound...

    Thank you! Will look into each of those. It might be the sort of deal where I will use my current setups, and then if LTJ really floats my yak, then I will just bite the bullet and get one of the...

    I think I may start using clips too for the rods that will see a lot of casting and lure changes, but the ones that I just leave out trolling a lot, I will probably stick to just leader-to-lure. I...

    Are you going to sell rods or reels on the site, or keep it to tackle and literature? Also, any recommendations for a 50-100$ spinning rod that I can learn how to jig on, and will hold up pretty well...

    Nope I was in FL for 6 weeks helping out with disaster recovery work and finally got a day off. My flight wasn't until late that night so I drove the 3 hrs early in the morning from my hotel in...

    Nice fish! Was a similar story for me on the Severn today, 1 fish, but it was a solid 26" (also on a 4" paddletail trolled)...I paddled around for a few hours afterward but then the winds picked up,...

    Yeah I think for paddling it's between 350-450 calories per hour at a moderate pace, but like you said, add in the cold and that'll be more like 400-500 I'm sure. Most of my trips are about 4 hours,...

    One other entry, this one is a Cero Mackerel. It's a species I had never even heard of before I caught it, though supposedly it's the tastiest of the typical mackerels (like Spanish, king, etc)....

    So I would like to get a spot on the leaderboard for Sailfish. The one pictured below was caught last Friday 11/10/17 on a live goggle eye, slow trolled behind a kayak off Delray Beach FL. We did not...

    I would def be in if we did a group buy. I will have to check out the sizes. They'd come in handy even if just to hold ice/fish for our jbay trip. I think the one I use, the red/white igloo, is a 40...

    Absolutely. After the picture is taken, I handed the fish to the guide and he pedals along with it for a good 10 minutes until it's fully revived. You can see it gaining it's strength back as we were...

    I haven't bought any from alibaba, or in general, but the walmart brand (ozark trail maybe?) roto cooler looks pretty decent and is obv much less than a yeti. I've heard it performs very well too....

    Does the 5000 get tiring for things like constant casting, or surf fishing? That seems like the perfect size if I was looking to get a third surf reel setup. I have a baitrunner 4500b that I love,...

    I bet for heavy dunking and surf use, you'd be good going for a Shimano spheros sw, saragosa SW, or a quantum Cabo. They're all 150-300$ but I hear it's worth it, according to AH anyway.

    You got it. I'm sure you're really going to like it. It's a sharp looking reel too. Alan predicted this is going to pressure Shimano and Penn to really step up their 80-120$ reels. So we will all...
