If you're gonna be an inshore fisherman, you better pack bug repellant for EVERY trip, they start at the ankles and work their way up......no-see-ums; flys, mosquitoes, whatever.....just like Sunscreen, it's part of the package especially in Redfish habitat.

Get a Thermocell. They work, they are only about $30, they will keep you from getting eaten up on the grass flats. I've got ONE for my 17' boat and it really cuts down on the bug bites.

I have a friend that swears that Listerine in a spray bottle is the best repelent he has ever used. Sprays it on himself and on the boat. Any one ever tried it??

Have to test this one. Sounds like it might work. I absolutely hate the way bug repellents smell and avoid using them unless there is no other option!!!

Had a guy in SF tell me Ha Ha take sulfur tabs.. or an oldschool way eat match stems. Bugs do not like sulfur. I dont know how healthy it is though. Small doses. Ask your doc. Or just laugh at what i posted. I always carried clear fingernail polish in my bag, I was laughed at until it was needed. I was in Camp Blandin, Fl had to go see the medic. I was covered with them had to keep on training. Not to happy. I didthe sulfur thingand it seemed to make them go away.
