  3. I would like to keep everything together, but if there isn't much interest after a little while in the whole lot, I would be open to breaking it up.

  6. With my current setup, I used to get knots using pp40 and I switched to pp30 and had almost none, some of it can the the line weight, its just something I found. Just got to use a little more finesse when I got a big one on.
  7. It was lifechanging for sure, I was going to put on my wetsuit, had it in the truck with me, but decided against it, water was still a little cold, and I knew I was going to be walking alot out of the water and didn't want to burn up my tighs. A PFD is being bought very soon, probably before my next trip out. It is a lesson for me and for others just to think, I was one of the few lucky ones where I was able to make it, but I have heard too many stories, about people drowning because of waders, I dismissed them mostly, not now, I will heed all the warnings. I do have a new outlook on life and makes me realize how lucky I am.
  8. I was really stupid, I got comfortable in this place, it was a calm day no waves and I thought I was fine, the only reason the water was as high as it was, was because I was catching on a bar and lost track of time, not an excuse just what happened. Never take for granted the water cause she will get you
  9. I did have one, my father, but he went back to the truck cause he was hurting. I am still shooken up over it, but it goes to show even in places that we all think we know things can change and trouble can come in an instant
  10. I nearly died today, I was mere seconds from drowning only 20 yards from shore. This was a place I have fished for over 10 years, and because of the hurricane that hit last fall the terrain is much different. I was walking back in from fishing and the water was high on my waders a few inches from the top, not an ideal situation, but I was in an area which I though I knew very well. I was walking pretty slow as I was a bit tired, and as I got close to shore, I had this very weird sensation come over me, I still cannot explain it but just before I took my step into a new hole that was made, I felt like I was far lighter, like I was almost being lifted slightly, then it happened.... One more step and I went into this hole and was under water. Trying to go back was no use as the tide was pushing me into the middle of the hole, I surfaces and started to try and swim, but anyone who has ever had waders fill with water knows its almost impossible, I kept my head up for a short while then when the water forced its way past my belt I went down again, only inches under the surface I still wasn't touching bottom. I mustered all of my strength and forced myself back to the surface and gasped for air swallowing a bunch of sea water. Struggling as hard as I could, I kept myself above the water for only a handful of seconds, and in that time I really did see my life flash before me, and I went under again. As much as I struggled I couldn't get back to the surface, but all of a sudden I felt myself rise up just enough to get my mouth out of the water and I stayed there for a few seconds and I heard something say drop your rod. In my mind I thought if I can get my rod to the bottom I might be able to push myself up, though I didn't know how deep the water was, I put my rod down and I hit bottom and pushed my head above the water and took the deepest breath I could, the rod was only a couple feet out of the water a 10'6' rod, I was stable for the moment but had no strength left. the rod started to lean over forward towards shore and somehow, I don't know how, cause I didn't do it, the rod lifted and went back down again, propping my head just above the water line, then it leaned forward again and as I rode it down my feet hit bottom with my head still just above the water. I pushed myself out and sat on the beach for a few minutes collapsing in exhaustion. I do not understand it, but I should be dead.
  11. Sounds good I got a real good Army Navy up the street
  12. I am in need of a new surf bag, as mine got destroyed by someone. I am looking for something with 8 tubes, but am strapped for cash. I am looking for any suggestions.
