Default 4-20

Well I stuck to alabama waters this morning and I managed to catch 4 pompano. ....but two of them were dinks, that got released. At least the 2 keepers were nice . One went 16" and the other 15 1/2", but he would have been 16 if his tail hadn't been worn off.
On a side note I went ahead and bit the bullet, and I now have some gray wheeleez !

In Alabama it's overall length / In Florida it's to the fork.

Russ, I'm looking for a cart now and was thinking orange wheels vs the plastic. Used my BIL's cart with plastic wheels and it seemed like I was dragging it through the deep sand. Are the grey wheels better than the orange or plastic? Thanks and nice catch!

I bought the cart 4 or 5 years ago at J&M bait and tackle. It came with the rubber lawn mower style tires. A couple of years after I bought it I wanted to upgrade the tires to make it easier to pull through the sand. That soft sand is ruff on a fat boy ! Anyway I was on vacation at the time and had spent way to much money already ,but I decided that I had to have some . I went to buy the gray ones but I found out that I didn't have enough money with me. They were like $270 at the time. So I looked into the orange ones , much better price at $140 at the time. The orange ones are thinner material than the gray ones, but still offer the benefit of easier pulling through the sand. But you need to be particular about what you run over with them. However I've had mine a couple of years now with no trouble.
I bought my new gray ones at GCIC or is it GCIS I can never remember the name of that place. It's on the beach express between 98 and Wharf. Now for the current prices! #$/^&! The gray ones are $287 before tax $315 after. They don't carry the orange ones there. My buddy just bought some orange ones a couple of weeks ago, and he said he paid $160. The gray ones and the orange ones both come with a new axle as the original axle will not fit with the wider tires. The orange one's axle will bolt right up with no drilling. The gray wheeleez you have to drill some new holes..... which they will do at the shop for you at no additional charge. By the way they sell a lot of replacement parts for your cart such as the black rubber rings on the top of your rod holders , cart handles, cutting boards and bait baskets , bucket holder attachments , linears. They also sell whole carts but I don't know for how much.
