Vacation

7 posts in this topic

Had the opportunity to go to Ft. Meyers Florida with my family for a week.  Gosh I love watching the storms going across the ocean and the sunsets.  Not to mention fishing most every morning and evening off the beach.  Didn't catch a ton but did enjoy the floor shows of dolphin jumping and schools of bait fish getting attacked.  Saw a young lady and her boyfriend catch a very large tarpon off the beach the last evening and that was amazing.  Should I get to go again that's going to be on my list of things to try. Love Florida in the summer....less people.  Grand kids loved it too.

Glad you had a good time. Summer is most often trash fish or dink time for surf fishing here,but once and a while you get a decent fish. The only tarpon I ever caught was while surf fishing and using a live finger mullet for bait.But it was only 20-25 pounds.

Sounds like you had a good time. Florida overall is a beautiful state that has lots to offer for the outdoorsman. I highly recommend you visit the east coast of South Florida for some peacock bass fishing, these fish are a blast to catch. Also some offshore saltwater fishing if you have enough time during your vacation.

It sure would be awesome to catch a tarpon. Btw, what part of Oregon? The Pacific NW is my neck of the woods.

Have spent most of my time in the Willamette  valley area.  Was born in Astoria.  Have caught about everything Oregon has to offer including some giant sturgeon.  Then I started bass fishing and was blessed to do a lot of traveling.  So sad of the reg's out there in Oregon concerning bass...but...is what it is I guess.
