    ... it was alot of fun and good eating. I filled two freezers full of King, Barracuda, Bonito and Dolphin. We fished for about six hours, 14 miles due east of Islandia and had consistent action but no whoppers. Beautiful day and sweet seas. It was my brothers birthday and we did it right, sober and tight.

    You're right DLM. You can't have a better time with your clothes on. I marinate mine in "Everglades Heat" and butter. La Belle must not be far from you.

    Hey, they sure the hell do. We pulled a couple 30+# Kings and a barracuda that did'nt fight that hard. I mostly fish in the ICW so that was really a treat for me. My favorite fish to target in the ICW is obviously Tarpon but they're kind of like prom queens or something, stars and moon have to be aligned, plus a sh!tload of live bait to get em' enticed. I've been getting Crevalle(?) Jacks on live shrimp and crabs which are like pissed off little permit or pompano. # for # I have heard they fight as hard as anything and I yanked a few 8#'s out lately. Bonnet-head (small hammerhead) never fail to give a great fight and the sight of them are awsome as well. Pulled over two dozen out of the water in the last two weeks or so. I always let any shark I catch go because I beleive in kharma (or something like that) and I still surf! In the ICW, I use 10# rods w/ 12# line with a 4000 series spinning reel. I'll use 20# leader only if I'm near a jetty or seawall or specifically targeting shark or other toothy guys. If I go for something bigger, I use a 6000 series w/ 20# line and 50# wire leader. Thanks for looking all, good fishing! Hey Silver, I know Tarpon are well up into S.C. now, get out there, if not, get a C - Jack and hold on. They are sweet fighters and fine eating.

    great job! that is how you're supposed to celebrate a birthday.

    i really enjoy off-shore fishing. i went 116 miles off the coast of florida 2 summers ago fishing for yellow-fin tuna. you talk about a fight, try and land a 55lb (small) yellow fin inside of 30 minutes. WOW! i will have to dig up those pictures. i am going back to Canaveral on July 23 to do some wreck fishing for grouper, snapper, kings, etc. my buddy says they are tearing them up down there about 30 to 40 miles out. i am tenatively planning on going down the following week to try my hand and diving for lobsters. that isn't etched in stone yet though.

    anyway, congrats again.

    I enjoy sight fishing on the flats. I went to Biscaine Bay last April, I caught a couple of nice bonefish, talk about a fight. They would strip out 100 yards of line, then you would get them back to the boat only for them to take back off again. Also caught a 50" barracuda, the biggest one I have ever caught. We tarpon fished at night, I hooked many, only got one to the boat. Can't wait to go back.:cool:

    A 50" 'cuda is a good sized fish! Way to go!

    Florida saltwater fishing has got to be one of the top places in the world.
