  1. I was staying in Jupiter when I went down and we launched within 10 minutes of there for the inshore trip. For the offshore trip I believe we launched from either Delray or Boynton beach.
  2. Deep Blue Kayak Fishing runs a couple different types of trips with Tarpon being one of them. I used them this past February and did one day of inshore fishing as well as one day of offshore fishing. Matt and Eric are both very knowledgeable and know the fishery down there very well. From what I remember they said June is the best time to go down because you can go after the tarpon and still have a shot at going offshore for sails etc. I wish I was going down again this year it's definitely a fun trip I'm sure you'll have a great time.
  3. I'll be out there as well on a dune outback. What radio channel will you guys be on?
  4. If you're looking for a guided service I've been out with Ricky Wolbert from Coastal Kayak Fishing Adventures and had a great time. I would definitely recommend taking a trip with him to learn the ropes. We're coming up on the time of year where cold water gear is absolutely necessary to stay safe out there. You have some different options for this from drysuits to a combination of waders and a drytop. Search the forums there's been some threads debating the benefits of each. Don't risk your life just to catch a couple fish, it's not worth it. That being said welcome to the sport I'm sure you'll grow to love it as many of us do. Once you have the ability to send private messages (after 10 posts) I'd be more than happy to link up. I don't claim to be an expert my any means but I'd be glad to show you what I've learned. Good luck!
  5. Thanks for the feedback guys I appreciate it. I'll report back after the trips over to let you know how I made out.
  6. I just booked my camping site in Kiptopeke state park from the 19th-22nd (Sep). I'm planning on fishing the concrete ships and the CBBT if the weather allows. If anyone's going to be in the area and wants to meet up feel free to get in touch. Recommendations and tips are always welcome as well. Thanks!
  7. I might be interested in the total scan transducer depending on asking price. Let me know if you decide to post it in the BST forum. Thanks!
  8. I haven't received anything but would be interested in filling this out. Anyone know if this is available for everyone?
  9. I just purchased a bunch of hanes spf 50 longsleeve shirts from walmart for about $10 a piece. They're comparable to just about any other sport shirt out there and a quarter of the price of some of them.
  10. I’m thinking about doing some drum fishing on the cape May side of the DB on Saturday (5-18). If anyone wants to meet up let me know.
  11. I catch and release
  12. I flew down to Florida from PHL in February and didn't have any problems bringing lures with hooks still attached. As long as you don't have huge shark hooks I don't see them giving you any trouble. I had my reels with me as well with the braided line still spooled up, I had heard somewhere that they might give you trouble for that but they didn't even bat an eye.
  13. That sounds like an amazing trip! Looking forward to the updated report.
  14. Kinghong1970 sounds like a deal! PM on the way. Glad someone can put this to use!
