From NE Indiana, transferred here for work.... Fished my entire life up north, time to start fishing down here.

Looking for trips on sat/sun's...

Surf fishing, fresh or salt water trips..... Just looking to learn the in and outs of fishing down here and get up to speed on the how, what and where to go.

Willing to chip in for gas, don't have any salt water gear yet as I'm not sure what to get or would need.

Your best bet, for now, is to pick a specie that you are interested in catching; then, use the SEARCH function on here and read as much as you can on the subject specie. Much better than starting from zero.

watch the ride wanted section. There are rides available and most people with boats have extra equipment you can barrow. For pier and bridge fishing, go down and observe and talk to the people fishing.

also YouTube has thousands of videos on catching Speckled Trout, Redfish, Pompano and probably any other species in the area. Also videos on how to catch crabs in a trap, cast a net, gig a Flounder etc.

As for gear go down to outcast with a price and species in mind and ask questions. They will be able to set you up with everything you need.

You posted in the right place. There are always people looking for others to fish with and help with costs. Where exactly are you located and do you prefer to go out of?

I'm from Huntington, about 20 SW of Ft Wayne. I mainly fish from a Hobie outback, fished the surf a few times. Guys on here are really helpful.
