  1. Over spring break, I am lucky to be going on a sailing trip around the abacos and other islands in the Bahamas. Our sailboat will most likely be withing 10 miles of the shore for most of the trip. I was just wondering if anyone had any experience fishing in these locations. Any info on inshore trolling, reef fishing, or flats fishing in the bahamas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  2. I'm Colin Brennan, age 15, and this is a mahi mahi i caught two weeks ago offshore in the Willmington canyon
  3. Two years ago i was fishing off the beach in my kayak. A rogue wave broadsided me, the kayak flipped and everything went into the water. After swimming the kayak back to shore, I was glad just to be back on land. But, later that day, I looked down by the water and saw a bunch of kids holding my rod and reel and taking pictures with it like it was a lost treasure. After thanking them, I was luckily able to get my setup back.

  5. I used to use power pro, but then I switched to suffix 832 and I like it much better
  6. All over southern Jersey's jetties and beaches! Thanks for the chance Penn

  9. Not a horrible event, but definitely one of my most frustrating days out on the water: my dad, me, and two friends were out fishing on my dad's boat last week, and we quickly got into some nice fluke fishing. About a half hour in I got a 22 inch fish and we netted it, measured it, and I took the buck tail out of it's mouth. Next, for some stupid reason I put it up on our cutting board and with one strong kick it flaps out of the boat and swims away... But, luckily we ended up getting an eight pounder later that day, which I made sure to keep close to the deck
  10. This is my younger brother, Owen Brennan (age 8), with his first fluke of the season caught on 6/1/2014. Luckily, he's now starting to get hooked on fishing.
