Reminds me of the 12 pound Apaloosa Catfish I caught on a lightweight spinning rig set up for Crappie with 8Lb test. If I can find a pic, I'll post it. Bear in mind, this was back in 1983 and the Sheepdawg was a youngster.

:) anytime is good for the fishin' ;) we have no closed seasons :mrgreen: speckled trout on the inside (coastal marsh) is hottest from Sept thru April. by late May they move to the outside (offshore) and will spawn thru August. that's when we slam 'um at the offshore oil rigs :mrgreen: redfishin' is good on the inside all the time; but inside marsh is especially good with the buggy whips during the hot months, push poling and site castin'. i close down my fishin' camp and winterize the boats for the deer season, late October thru late January. i usually head back down in February and start fishin' again in early March before the big trout head south and eventually offshore. i have an 18' inshore boat and a 24' offshore boat so the fish are never out of range. :D
just let me know what time is best for either or both of ya and i can provide the accomodations, boats and know how. all you have to do is find your way here, get your liscense, and everything else is on me. i'm not a professional guide, but i spent my whole life rippin' the lips off of fish in the coastal marsh and near shore rigs. ;) if you hookup with me on facebook; dennis marrero, you'll have access to all my albums to get a glimpse of what i'm talkin' about. 8-)
:) ball's in your court now! :D Seriously, let's set something up. 8-)

night fishin' offshore. my neighbor & I, 50 trout!

Done.

The minute you mentioned it I started learning how to tie Redfish flies, I guess I now need to investigate speckled trout flies.

This is too good to pass up, so I will be down this spring. We can trade info and make this happen.

Thank you very much for the offer.

Try this link for Redfish Crack fly tying instructions - http://www.texaskayakfisherman.com/foru ... 0&t=172233. If you haven't worked with the EP Streamer Brush, try it out. It makes it very easy to tie this fly. Use a bodkin or velcro to brush the fly out, as per the instructions.

OK, it's not a 7 pound bass, but it is a 10 pound tigerfish taken in Botswana on the Okavango River on a fly two weeks ago. Could have used the bushmaster, once I got it in the boat.

It's called a Gurgler and I believe it was tied originally as a shrimp.
