  1. Headed to Key West on January 20th. Looking to charter a boat for both inshore and offshore fishing. Any recommendations will be appreciated.
  2. FYI. I’m running mainly 50’s and 70’s. No 130’s.
  3. They’re called Port a Rod. They have a website and carry set up’s for heavy gear. I have one. Never failed
  4. Am I dreaming to think I can use a Shimano SpeedMaster II12 and a Lamiglass bluewater rods to jig for Bluefin tuna east of Chatham. Or do I step up to a Talica and new rod.
  5. Tarpon will be on big spinning gear! Hopefully……
  6. Thanks. Will be taking your advice!
  7. Renting a boat on my own. Have done so the last few years but used spinning. Too windy for my skill set with a fly rod. There were time I wished I had brought the fly gear when the wind layed down.
  8. Headed to Islamorada in April. I got a flats boat for 3 days, the rest is DIY from shore. I have a 9wt rod I use on cape cod waters with an intermediate and sinking line. I have an 8wt with a floating line. Is there anything I’m missing. I’m thinking about picking up the Rio Elite Flats pro 9wt. Is this overkill for a 1x’s per year trip?
  9. Makeshift for Winter Months. Highlights my addiction
  10. My wife is having the surgery in December. Right should, full tear and bone Spurs. Did you get a recliner with a remote control for sleeping. Most power recliners come with a right arm side button. ( not good if you have right shoulder surgery. )
  11. Had a pair of 580g green mirror Permits, rubber around nose separated from frame. Did it all online . Sent pics was approves for a replacement, didn’t have mine in Tortoise frame but choose black frame as replacement. Whole process took less than 4 weelk from start - returned my old glasses (on their UPS dime) and received my new pair of 580g in black frame. Painless process IMHO.
  12. Korkers wading boots with studded sole. Also use wading neoprene socks. Better fit than regular socks. And if for some reason you need to go in the water not a big deal.
  13. Simms G3. I take very good care of them. Patched a few holes. Going on 8 years. Still work great.
  14. Port a rod .com. Plenty of options love mine and easy in and out of truck.
  15. 14 years is a lot of great memories. Let that get you through the grief. Never easy. Good luck over the next week or two. Hope the pain goes quick.
