Nice work.

I really like the colors of those inland bulls down there.

I love when the magenta spots show really well. It’s such a contrast to the olive body.

Got some cheap tix and loaded a backpack w/ travel rods and headed to FL. Fished Alligator Ally last week. Caught tons of small Snook and fat Cichlids. Gators wanted in on the action! Cabelas travel rods were nice for the price. Slower action than I prefer but good enough for me. Redington Behemoths and spare spools were cheap and performed fine. Not the smoothest drag but I wanted inespensive stuff I could drag around. Had a good time.

Here in Orlando on a "work" trip.  Hired a great guy to take me down Shingle creek in a canoe.  Great wild experience in the headwaters of the everglades.  Got lots of good bass on poppers.  Lost a real giant that may have been 9lb +.  One in the photo is probably 6lb or so.

Fooled by yesterday's warm temps, which I enjoyed not one bit as I worked all day indoors, I got out today.  Blowing like the dickens, making the 40 degree temps feel a lot colder, especially with wet hands!  But after 4 hours of flogging the water I finally got my first fish of 2019 - an auspicious start!

Day 15 ended with similar results to Day 14, but the new to me glass rod ( see rod closet thread) got it's first workout.  What a phenomenal rod.  The CFO III does not balance it terrifically well, but it looks so good I will live with it.
