Nice Red !! Florida has a 27in max limit on us and just lowered the window for snook to 28in - 32in. A 4 inch window does not leave much for us.


Thanks. Texas does a Tag deal for anything over 28 IIRC. You get one tag per licence BUT if you fill out lots of info on where your got your tagged Red and send it in to the state you will get another tag back so you get a Max of two oversized Reds. Pretty good deal IMHO.

Small craft advisory. I canceled. I don't need to be in 6 foot waves on my first trip.

If you were planning on going in your 17' boat, you don't really need to be out of sight of land in any weather!

Got a roughly 100lb amberjack once, long fight. 4ft barracuda the same day. In freshwater my biggest was a ~12lb snook that measured like 30-some inches.

Oh man, did you have some shashimi right there on the boat!


Lol, we waited till we got to the dock. I wish I could find a good photo of that trip, all I have are in a tiny format from a old computer.

I'm on the far left and honestly I found that it was more work than fun. We were using stand-up 50lb rigs with no shoulder harness since the captain had no experience with us and didn't want us going over the side with a big fish.

To borrow a line from "Larry", that's funny right there I don't care who you are!

If Cortland bought one of these reels he could save on monogramming.

Rsilvers, You might want to consider getting some Boga Grips.

All the fishing guides down here in FL use them and I think they are fantastic!

Allows you to handle and weigh the fish with out harming it.

Check 'em out: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templ ... hasJS=true

Ok. What is the deal with those? There is one original called "Boga" and then there are copies for 1/5 the price but they are knockoffs?

Clone: $29
Clone with digital scale: $50
http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templ ... =cat601233

Original with spring-based scale:
$119

http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templ ... hasJS=true

The clones seem to have poor reviews and I don't do clones anyway, so I will get a 30lb model from a local dealer.

Knock-offs are real cheap and don't have the same quality. My friend has a clone and it is about half the weight as a real Boga and runs real rough after some saltwater exposure.

Boga Grips are AWESOME, but remember they do not float :(
