Keeping your rig at home in the garage has multiple advantages. First, it is out of thieves’ sights. Second, indoor protection against UV light, heat and outdoors elements keeps your boat new-looking. And lastly, your boat will always be prepared because you can leave tackle and electronics in place.
Florida Sportsman Member:Dude-On-A-Kayak At around 7:30AM I hooked up with a nice bull dolphin or “mahi”. It ate the first ballyhoo I tossed out in 105′ of water. I think that is the shallowest I have ever caught a dolphin. During the battle I buried a treble hook in my leg (like all the way in) and lost my sabiki rod. It was another expensive trip, but it was fun.
As we exited the bustling Turnpike on a sunny March Friday afternoon after a six-hour drive south from Tallahassee, we noticed the weekend traffic picking up, boats being trailered to the water, tops down on convertibles and Jeeps—spring had arrived in the Sunshine State. Winding back on a county road to a series of dirt roads in western Martin County, my husband Tony and I made our way to a gate where cattle skulls welcomed us from each side of tall fence posts made of railroad ties.
