Looks a little crowded in there Kreg. Those fish look a lot better in my freezer and on my plate. Thanks. Soon I will be catching my own.

Thanks! Went out with Needtofish yesterday at Navarre Beach. Didn't have the same experience, so not sure if it was the red tide, new moon, no bait, cold snap, or just got lucky my 1st 3weekends.(No kings, no spanish, no redfish.)You could not see red tide but you it would choke you right at the waters edge at the beach. I caught 7 bluefish 1.5-3lbs and a 1.7lb black snapper around 1st light, so there was some fish in the water, but after that, as Mark said, "There is no fish in this ocean."

(Ihave not been getting replies on my personal e-mail account like I did with the old forum. It looks like I have the e-mail settings correct. Any suggestions?)
