    Howdy, I'm new to the forum and am interested in making a connection or two in Panama City. I'll be down there March 5-13 and am dying to do some saltwater fishing. I would be willing to exchange a guided fly fishing trip in the mountains of North Carolina! Is anyone going to be down there...
  3. Breakers vs. Offshore Swells?

    Kayak Forum
    Checking out the surf forecast and noticed something weird. It calls for 1-2' tomorrow on swellinfo, but the chart and numbers don't match up, showing 0'. Curious if I'm missing something. NOAA calls for 1-2' seas, but I know with the right wind 2' seas can still be ankle-high breakers...

    I'm taking a one night camping trip to Johnson Beach. I've never surf fished before but am an avid freshwater and and bass fisherman. I prefer artificial but can do real bait if a necessity.
