transplanted Arkie to the Gulf Coast

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon to all- I lived in the Ozarks and fished many of the creeks, streams, rivers and lakes up there. I do miss the smallmouth bass in  the creeks, and I do miss the trout that I sometimes could fool- not often.

These days I live on the Gulf Coast of Alabama and Florida. My best fly fishing success lately came last fall when I hooked and caught a mid to upper 20 pound redfish on my old 12 weight rig- had quite a little tussle there for a while. I'm headed over to Panama City Beach, Florida the end of February to fish for inshore and offshore stuff- I hope to get into some amberjack on the fly rod- yep, I'm looking for punishment.

I hope you all get into some good fish- I hope it's not too cold for you. I planted tomatoes yesterday in the garden, and I caught a whole potfull of fat crappie this morning.

Hope to hear from some of you if you ever think about coming down this way to go fishing- it's pretty good.

good night to all- Ed
