Re: Wind this weekend I'd say your chances are as good as when there isn't as much wind. I personally think Port Mansfield is always windy and though you might have a rough ride going out you should still be able to get on some fish. Drifting with two drift bags out is usually how […]

wade fishing reels What are some good baitcaster/spincast that will take salt water. with proper care
Re: wade fishing reels If you dont want to spend big bucks, try the higher end Tica or Okuma reels, been using both for inshore reds and trout for about 3 years now, and all are doing great. Proper maint is the key on any salt water tool ;D
Re: How’s the fishin in this areas Dood, how do I say this without sounding like a wiseacre? The best thing to do is wade the enitre spot and find the ditches and potholes. Friday we pulled out a 25 and 27 right across from Bennies. You have to find the structure. Good Luck.bds
