Nice! I was just talking to my old man about us heading up for a fishing trip. Now that oir province is opening up to allow fishing, I think it may be only vacation we get this year. We’ll be going lakers too, you use down riggers?

We are just getting into Bluewater season, the dolphin should be showing up anytime then the tuna and billfish right behind them. 

The trout (saltwater) will start spawning soon, as well as the redbreast and bluegill. The first full moon after the water temp hits 72 they will start. The redbreast are fun for my daughter's, we can throw the boat in and catch 50 or so pretty quick.

While fishing language is not my native tongue, I’m enjoying the thread nonetheless.

It's a Mark Zona reference. Watch the first 20-40 minutes of this video, it's the next best thing to actually fishing

Maybe is just me but I feel like using fish radar is kinda cheating.

Who doesn't?

My buddy took his 10 year old son on a bonefish trip. After he showed me a picture of a nice one he caught I asked him what he liked fishing for best. He said "I like smallies" without missing a beat.

Looking for input on slabs...any of you guys got a goto rig for crappie? Especially since theyre basically a year round catch.
