Guyz, this is how ya do it.  Please note it is very important to fill in all the boxes properly, esp. the short name (limited to 15 characters) to be shown in the calendar.  

It does no good to list a date without identifying what it is, ie a short descriptive short name, like "Flamingo Trip" or "Blow Job". Your topic title and topic description should also describe the trip.

This is now the official post for this event, details below.  Carry on...


:capn:

Details per Fishhead:

First light at Flamingo. Weather permitting.

Launch at campground ... keep going past the boat launch ... when you enter the campground look left, over your shoulder for the Bathroom building on the shore.

now that you've chastised me with you're anal retentive proper box filling out and descriptive identification, why don't you show up and fish?

you're ascared, arent ya...lol

(Capn's Note:  everybody knows I'm the second best yakfisher here, which is fine with me.  Number one is just too much responsibility.  Anal, schmanal.  I ask you: is "February 16th" a good description of, uh, the event on 2/16/07?  Of course not.  As your faithful servant I intend only to increase your attendance and gently redirect you to the road less traveled... whereby "Flamingo Trip" seemed slightly more effective.  Indeed!)

Hey ... do they sell Live Bait down at that Marina at Flamingo? ... I don't have a Live Well but I can handle shrimp with a Plano bucket.

Also ... if I were to bring frozen bait what would be a good choice? Something that doesn't completely fall apart when you hook it would be good.

I've heard that if you buy fresh ballyhoo , soak it in water and Kosher salt , then freeze it , the little critters will stay nice when you thaw and hook ... is that true?

Suggestions are most welcome ... and other participants as well. The thought of spending an entire day with just Tuna is depressing.

Never get out of the boat.

Getting live bait at Mingo is risky, b4 the hurricane they only had it in season, last time I asked the laughed and said not since the storm.

Stop at Dons or Jacks in Homestead, Jacks South of the T-pike exit, Dons North both on US1.

RAT FARTS :angry:


(Capn's Note: I see the winds are dropping off beginning in the afternoon, with Saturday looking terrific.  Seems like you have two choices:

1.  Keep the date and fish the lee and corners (can be fun and productive), 15 - 20 is doable - or -

2.  Reschedule for Saturday which is forecasted to be a super day, windwise.

I can change the date if you wish)
