Hello to all, I've been lurking on the forum for a little while now and decided to join and get involved. I live in central Alabama but have family in Pensacola and warm water fishing sucks, so I try to get down to their place and fish about once a month or so. So far i have just stuck to the bay for several reasons, wasn't up to offshore alone, didn't think it too smart being new to it. Also right now, I have a Jackson Coosa and it can be a handful in the wind even in the bay. I have a Cuda on order that should be in within 2 weeks so one problem down. I would like to thank everyone for all of the information I have learned already and hopefully can share some knowledge one day.
