Couldn't agree more with you Chuck.
We catch and release all the tarpon we catch, I understand they are not that good to eat anyway.
A few facts on tarpon, the main reason you mostly catch tarpon that are around the 80 pound range is because that is as big as the male tarpon gets. The females...
I have a friend that is wanting a 6-7 foot cedar strip canoe. He has a large landscaped pond in his back yard and wants a small canoe built to put water plants in.
He also wants to create some sort of bulk head in it to allow the plants to be watered from the pond.
Anyone have any ideas? A...
OUCH! The hook removal was our guides other service. By the last day I was taping up my fingers I set the hook twice on a big one just about the same time he decided to run. That line will burn right through the skin. :o
That ratio is about right. It's all about not having slack in the...
Yes 5 in an afternoon is a handful. My shoulders are still sore as heck!
Unfortunately all good things must come to an end. Got back State side late last night. Heading to Cumberland to trout fish in a few weeks when my boy is home on leave. It will be fun, but I suspect difficult pulling in...
So today I went fishing.
Hook up time!
80 Pounds, caught on a fly, 30 pound test, took an hour and a half to land. Times that baby by 5 for today's total catch. It has been a phenomenal trip this time I sure hate to head home tomorrow.
Oh yes these are for use here in KY and IN fishing plus a few I've sent to the great states of TX, LA, and PA. I did managed to get out once on Dale Hollow in Dec with a friend and do a little float & Fly for smallies. Been in the local rivers in Feb and March trout fishing. Best this year...
Start tying Tarpon flies next week for Costa Rica.
I thought some of you might enjoy seeing a few Crappie Jigs. :D
Coyote Wild Tail
Orange Hot Shot
a recent Spinner bait
And a few of my Road Runners.
Thanks for sharing Mary.
I thought I would offer insight to the broken eggs. I've been told that you can pre-boil the eggs prior to a trip, about 1 min as I recall. Not cooking them but only sealing the outer layer making the shell harder and creating a seal. Never tried it myself as I always...
It was a pleasure meeting you Jack and Jimmy.
Glad to see you guys hiked down to Rock Bridge I love that area.
Usually I take several pictures when I'm there, but this trip I only had taken a few that are worthy of posting.

Back in late April I decided to take a day hike and see Tioga Falls. Located, on the Fort Knox compound near Ft Knox KY, which is open to the simple people like myself, to enjoy.
Even in the pouring rain it was a trip worthy of a visit and I’m planning to return to capture the Fall colors...
We hooked the big boys down near Rainbow Bend. We were not there paddling just a fishing trip on the river. Strickly a business trip :mrgreen: I'll post more this week as I get time still busy catching up and eating smoked salmon.
Never saw a single bear, even ask about them and the locals acted as if they hadn't either.
Had it been legal we could have maxed out or daily limit in that stream each day and spent those cold rainy days in a warm bar. :)
I hooked into a nice steelhead our last day. It popped out of the...
I'm serious about doing a trip of such. I'll take up the logistics of it with the better half. There no way I could go south without her in the winter. She wouldn't camp, she only camps at those fancy campsites "Hilton". Depending on her vacation time I'm sure she would welcome warmth by...
lol you know if you'd quit dragging the feet in the water the canoe would travel faster :lol:
We are talking about going down river aren't we?
43 miles that just a day in the Q. :roll: Unless were fishing then it just depends on how the bite is going.
Re: Really nice!
Thank You Nockatee
I got a couple super programs for making the music. The pictures just take a steady hand and a good eye. I thought she did a fine job taking the pictures.
I'm not sure if I'll talk her into going on my 30 day trip to the Quetico this year but we'll...
We actually paddled through the State Park near the end of our trip. The Outfitter we used took us 11 miles up stream where we ended later at our exit point near our car. And yes it was part of the Florida Canoe Trail. Actually the take out was at the end of the trail.
The Outfitter we...
