Hello everyone,

First post on this site. Spent the last 13 years chasing STS (Salmon-Trout-Steelhead) in Southwest Michigan. Moved my family to Fort Myers last year. Been loving SW Florida so far. A friend from work invited me and my son out on the Gulf last Sunday. We caught a bunch of Red Grouper and some Mangrove Snappers. Had a great time - it was a beautiful day.

Much to learn down here :)

Cheers,

    Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    & a hearty welcome from the Keys. Looks as though your family are enjoying yourselves. That is a serious small mouth. Any chance on a fly?
    Ron Conner Release the fish, keep the memories. Once a Knight is enough.

    Thanks for the welcome sparse grey :)

    I caught that smallie last summer wading the Eel River in Logansport, IN. If memory serves me right, he was pretty close to 19" I was using spinning gear. He was in shallow slow water (just outside of the fast current) in the shade under a tree.
