FreeLine (12/5/2007)Bay Pirate, I must repond to your sarcastic post. The bridge is a big place, and I was not asking for anyone's honey holes. I would be the last one to ask for a specific spot or to crowd anyone who is fishing anywhere. I appreciate the courteous replies by others such as Reefdonkey.
Since you tried to withhold your reponse (but couldn't), let me give you a response that I havewithheld for a long time. You and a buddycame by trolling one day and threw lures all around my boatwhile I was anchored fishing a dock. Thiswas very unsportsmanlike. I resisted bringing this up because I appreciate the work that you do regarding the redfish rules and Ilike toavoid conflict.I have seen you lecture people many timesabout sportsmanship. I would suggest that you practice sportsmanship yourself when it comes to crowding people on their spots.
FreeLine (12/6/2007)Bay Pirate,
Someone in a boat named "Bay Pirate" trolled by where I had been anchored for quite some time fishing a dock. You trolled to front and to both sides of my boat, throwing artificialsin the area where I was fishingthe whole time. It was at a shallow water dock in Gulf Breeze not to far from the bridge last year. If it was someone else in a boat named "Bay Pirate", then I apologize. Otherwise, my comments stand.Hopefully, you will be more courteous to other fishermen in the future!
Knot a Yacht (12/7/2007)Ok, here is something for you. I have yet to catch a slot red at the 3-mile bridge. Durring this time of year the Bull Reds are in the open waters while the slots are up near the river mouths. I am not saying that they are not caught at the bridge, but my experience is that this time of year the bull reds greatly out number the slots in the bay/pass/gulf. Head to the river mouths to catch a slot.
