OK I have only been on an out of town fishing/ diving vacation a couple times. I have been to Ft Pierce for lobster season, probably the best trip. Been to Venice on a tuna trip, and been to the keys for lobster. This year I would like to do something I have never done, but it must be afforable. A friend has been fishing with Tony Reyes down in the Sea of Cortez. He told me yo go out for a week on thier mother ship, fish off pangas, and that it is a blast. The trip is less than $1000, plus airfare. So where has everyone been that you were able to spend several days fishing, and what did you catch & spend on the trip. It might be a good Topoic to add a "Fishing Vacations" somewhere.

For a change of pace and a great fishing trip, try the White River ( Gaston's Resort) and the Little Red River ( Lindsey's Resort) in north Arkansas. Rainbow and Brown trout float fishing in crystal clear water fishing with 2 to 4 lb. line. It's a blast and a great trip for the whole family as well.

If you're looking for a weekend trip, try Georgia's Jekyl Island in June for tripletail. Lots of great flounder and trout that time as well. Huge fish and I'll get you a guide's name up there.



Also lots of stuff for the family to do if you're inclined to take them.

I don't live on the coast, so for me you can't beat Fort Morgan in the Fall. You can rent a house for a month for the same price as a week in summer. Fish, shrimp, crabs, and football - can't beat it.

I did have a good time on the "I'm Alone" in the Chandeleurs a couple of times.

I don't like to go places where I can't bringa good supply ofmeat back.

We used to go here as a child (grandpa would take us out there), but now there's actually a guide service and a place to stay (we used to sleep on the islands in a tent)

The Chandeleur's will probably be gone soon in the next 10 - 20 years, so this would be a worthwhile trip.



Your wife/gf could stay at one of the casinos and do the day-spa thing for a couple of days (big brownie Points!!!) and you can fish - then you could polish off the week together.

I have tried several times to get some friends to do a Chandeleurs trip, 3 day mother ship, but never can get enough of them to commit. I believe last time i checked it was $3000 for 6 people. For 3 days of fishing I thought it was pretty fair. Mabey this year will work. I now havea 31' boat, just have to find a omc cobra drive and get it in the water. Keep the ideas coming, Costa Rica is another place I hope to make happen. We need a separate topic for upcoming trips so we can group together for some fun fishing vacations.

Guatemala is an awesome place to fish and if you want to go on a strictly fishing vacation no goin out to eat or anything outside of the place your staying Venezuela can't be beat. Something a little closer is go to Venice and inshore fish. Stay at Ryan Lambert Cajun Fishing Adventures lodge, great food pool tables and awesome guides its a fun place

There is a list of hot spots in the back of Salt Water Sportsman, under "The Traveling Fisherman".

For January, they like South Floridafor sailfish and swordfish (and tarpon and bonefish),Venice for yellowfin and wahoo (and redfish), and Costa Rica for mahi (and snook).

I've had consistently good luck going to where they said, when they said, chasing what they said, from Bermuda to Cairns, Australia.

Scheduling a trip in advance will keep down costs.
