South Florida Get Together Rd. 2

Recommended Posts

Who's ready to get back together?

From the guys I've talked to, it seems that several members are ready to meet up again to do some fishing. Doug mentioned something about hitting the south end of Lox towards the end of next week at some point. I believe Kevin and Shane were both game for that. I'm good to go whenever as long as I've got a few days worth of notice.

Ideas on where or dates?

Eric, I'm just returning from a 3 week trip to China. I am definately in the market for some serious fishing in the coming weeks. Last time, it seemed there was some interest in doing a get together at Okeechobee. It would not take too much arm twisting to get me to go there. B)

I was wondering why I hadn't heard from you in a while, Mike. Thats one long trip. Looks like I may be heading over there before too long myself to do a launch event for the Mini Cooper.

I'm always up for hitting Okeechobee. Doesn't really matter to me though. As long as theres fish in the water, I'm good to go.

Yeah man, me too. Loxahatchee...Okeechobee can't go wrong either way. I just wanna catch some bass.

Send me a PM if/when you get close to your China trip.

I am in, went to the Refuge on Sunday and last Tuesday, for every bass landed I had a pickerel or a couple of bowfin in the boat. Also, lost two frogs to GATORS and a Kopper's Live Target lipless crankbait! Water level is LOWEST I have seen in years, most of my better bass fishing came from around water control structures. I would rather launch from twenty-mile bend ramp. Anybody else experience the JUNK bite at the Refuge lately? Seems like as water drops every species is more concentrated and the Gar, Bowfin, and Muddies rule the roost!

Big "O" is on fire though, tons of fish to catch around King's Bar, Horse Island, and outside edges of Dyess Ditch. If you can't catch 20-50 keepers in a couple of hours you should not be considered a bass fisherman. Bigger fish can be found, but you need to search.

Did I see you last tuesday a mile or so from the ramp in the canal? After I passed I thought the boat looked familiar? I was at Lox 3 times last week with friends and for the three days we boated more than 30 fish over 4# some were in the 6-8 class. I'am definately up for Lox but the Big O....??? Wed, thurs, or friday works for me. Any other day and i'll catch yall next time.

Which ramp? If it was the Boca or Boyton ramp it was not me. I was on the Southern Blvd/PBSO Sheriff's firing range ramp (Northern most ramp). I basically just fished all the water control structures South and the canal right at the Eastward bend. Should have I explored the flats? I was there from 3 to 7:30 PM last Tuesday and this past Sunday.

I will be down in the WPB area (from NoVA) on Friday (4/8) and looking to fish (fresh or salt) that morning (some PM too). If anyone is fishing, I would love to join you if possible.

Looks like hitting Lox up is what most people are preferring. The only question is what day and ramp. Next week I'm good Friday for certain. Probably Wednesday or Thursday as well. Lox road is closest to me, but that doesn't really bother me much. I'm good for whatever ramp everybody else is comfortable with. I'll leave that up to you guys that are more familiar with the area. I've been out of Lox Rd. and thats it.

I'm in Disney World right now and had to sneak down to the lobby to use the public computer. I have to make this fast before the wife gets suspicious as to where I've been, LMAO. I'm in but cant go this Saturday, the 9th. It's my anniversary, but anytime after that is good with me. Any location is good too. Gotta go.

Ok, I'm back. The wife sent back down to the lobby so here I sit with my PopTart and milk :lol: .

Thursday of the next week, 14th, is not good for me because I have a tournament at 6pm, unless we go to lox in the morning and I'm back in Lake Worth by 3pm.

I have a 19' tracker so I can take me and 2 guys if necessary. It would be easier to decide when and where to fish if we knew what part of the day we were going to fish, morning or evening.

Hmm. I may want to get in on this too. Lox used to be my regular bassin spot until this KOTG thing got going. I have good memories of those flats during the spring

Lox mid/late next week sounds like a winner...

Dale, I'm sure there is a backseat open for you if you wanted to go that route.

Eric, maybe we can start putting together a boater/non-boater list??

I am good for either the Lake or Lox. I would prefer the south end ramp at LOX but can do anything. BTW, they are really enforcing this new 35 mph speed limit at Lox so watch out if we go there.

I am out on this trip guys sorry. I am boatless for 4-6 weeks or so as my tin is in for warranty repair.

Tear them up!!!!

Dale,

What happen to the boat? Run too shallow or something :-)

Ouch, that sucks, Dale. Sorry to hear that. Hopefully they get it fixed quickly and don't screw around with it up in Missou. I've heard some horror stories from people that had problems with warranty work.

I'll put a list together, Mike. I'm trying to drain my Jon right now. I left the cover off last night and it absolutely poured over here. Good thing I keep it hooked to the ground otherwise it might have slid down into the lake.

In inshore saltwater & intracoastal the snook & tarpon are starting to show up, pompano and jacks on the beach or piers. Offshore cobia, amberjack & kngfish are hot, some sailfish still around.

I missed the last get together, so I am looking forward to going to this one.

Lox would be great. The south ramp would be my choice.

Any week day is fine. I am working nights so I will have to take some hours off. Hopefully we can decide over the next few days.

Dale, don't be a couch potato on the day of the get together. You know you've got a spot in my boat. You can even fish on the front deck.

Doug.

That mean you're going to get out of that sissy seat on the front deck for a while? :D:P
