Been too long since i wet a line. Watched a school come in and threw them a twirl tail white jig. Fun stuff. Water was beautiful.

In other news. Some fuitcake was out there standing on a ladder on the first bar.

how tall is that stepladder? looks like fun and i can picture starting a whole new type of fishing by adding things like rod holders and other stuff to the ladder that is assuming someone else hasn't already done that

go down to flyfishing forum on here, he is a member of the forum

Yup, i was just breaking his balls.. We got out around 10 or so this morning. Think i might be jumping on the bus. Thing actually fishes well!! Better than a kayak, i hate to sit down while fishing..

Thing needs a depthfinder though. And a livewell.

It was my understanding that using a ladder would allow the poor man to fish for cobia. You could spot the schools of fish swimming by and cast in to them. Am I wrong about this?

Ladders

I have a friend who has a couple of ladders he modified for the surf. Kills Pompano sight fishing when the run is on. His son also caught a Cobia from a ladder last year. Not typical, but it does happen. It was posted on the forum. They take a lot of flack for the ladders, but also catch a ton of fish!

I'm more into the simplicity of surf fishing. Too much trouble and equipment for me.

OK I tried the surf ladder thing about ten years ago & I'm here to tell you it wont work if there is any surf at all. Every wave sank it another inch or so - I thought it was working great & I was some kinda genius - but - I didn't notice it until my 10' step ladder was buried about 30" in the sand in 5' of water. I almost had to leave it - took almost an hour to get it out and almost ruined the ladder. Might work if there is 0 wave action but I'll never try it again!

i have one of the gulf breeze stands....it works great! I would guess its because each leg has a round "foot" which keeps it from sinking in the sand.....now if i could just get somebody to carry it out to the big gun???
