Me And Dad Always wanted to go to the Keys and catch a Bone Fish & Permit on Light Tackle But that Never Happened before he Passed, Where would you Go!!! Thanks Dwayne!! What I meant By Invite Is I will Pay for everything But Their Food and Drinks everything else would be on Me within Reason!!! So with that in Mind where would you want to go!!

Halibut - Alaska, Peacock bass - Mexico, Sailfish - Costa....... but then I'm reminded that the trip is mostly the quality of the people you go with. I'm fortunate to have those top-quality people right here in Pensacola! Good friends & family that make every trip enjoyable -- even the trips that lack in quality of fish and/or climate.



So, here's a thanks to our Creator and His brave creations stationed worldwide that are defending our liberty to pursue our love of fishing!

For me it would have to be Golden Dorado (Salminus maxillosus in Argentina or Paraguay. These fish are the pitbulls of fish and are known to be real tackle busters. After a few days of tangling with them Id like to hop up to Venezuala and fish for the monster peacock bass (Cichla temensis) that can literally eat the little hyrbid peacocks in south Florida. After a couple days of that I would head to Uraima falls also in Venezuala to catch the famous, high flying, fanged vampire fish (Hydrlycus armatus)!

Fishing partners would be my pops and my good friend Brad. After high school the closest weve lived to one another has been about 400mi and we are more than due another stellar fishing trip!

Alaska is some beautiful countryside to see. Sportsman Cove Lodge is a great place to stay, and if you can reserve LR for you captain, he will treat you likea neighbor....he used live in Pace, but moved after Ivan. The chef is from New Orleans and the food is excellent. Ive never made it down south..to the keys or costa...but have always wanted tooooooo.

Good luck on whatever you decide.

I'd take either of the two:

Venice (which I'm going to do soon) I'd take my boat and do some exploring of the marsh looking for Reds and trout. Then next day go offshore Tuna, Wahoo, whatever else will bite. Then rotate inshore offshore for the full week.

Keys permit, snook, golith, bone, tarpon, sail, dauphin, sails, etc... the varity is what would make that a special trip. Wouldn't be cool to catch at least one of each in a week. Maybe a daytime Swordfish as the cherry on top.

Close third.... My boat at Cabbage Key for a week would be an adventure.

My work day is done. I'll be pricing vacation packages for the rest of the day.

The Great Barrier Reef during Black Marlin Season, I've been dreaming about that trip since '73, one of these days, I got to go, but it takes about 3 weeks to do it right.

One week trip? - Tropic Star...........

I agree witht he company comments, In Feb I was able to share the Guatemala experience with my 2 sons and my uncle....

I would suggest Venice for an affordable trip- been there, done that. YFT's and marsh reds.

Peacock bass in the Amazon has to be up there.

Great Barrier Reef for black marlin.

Rooster fish would be cool too. Maybe Costa Rica?

Feeding tarpon in Islamorada- soon to be off my list, cuz I'm gonna go.

Goliath grouper anywhere...

Last but not least, and a true dream of mine- dock light specks at my house.
