Fishing Tournaments and Events / Re: Kbf Lake Camanche 2-17-18
« on: February 20, 2018, 06:08:05 PM »
It took 87.5Ē to take the win.  Abel Patino posted up his second KBF Trail Event win this past weekend with a dominating finish!  Overall the bite was extremely tough and many folks (myself included) couldnít put together a five fish limit on the tourney day.  Finesse presentations were the key for most folks.  Drop shot, shakey head, flick shake, senko, Ned rig, and small jig heads with 2.8Ē Keitech swimbaits seemed to be popular choices for folks that were able to put fish in the boats.

There arenít any currently.  We donít have a group that hosts tournaments over here around Sonoma and Lake Counties.

If there was enough interest itís really easy to do and it wouldnít take much to set it up.

I hear ya!!  Well itíll still be here at this price.  My wife wonít go any lower than that on the number so if it doesnít sell sheíll just keep fishing out of it.  Itíll be at the Lake Camanche KBF Tournament in two weeks and the Shasta Bass Classic next month for anyone that wants to take a look and doesnít want to make the drive to Sonoma County to see it.

Then weíll be making the cross country run to the Kayak Bass Fishing National Championship at the end of March.  Maybe someone along the way will pick it up!

I thought for sure this would have garnered more interest than it has!  No one needs a 2017 camo Outback?

That is the same reason that I ended up going with these switches.  I knew that toggles would never survive in my Pro Angler!  I purchased the switches from Oznium.com.   They are IP67 rated and waterproof from the front.  The back side is pretty much sealed and I just added a dab of silicon sealant to the area that the wires come out from for extra protection.  I have them in my old 2014 PA14 and they've been there since new and are still working.  I don't own that hull anymore buy I sold it to a buddy here at work so I get to see it on the water fairly often since he fishes with me regularly. 

The switches come in two sizes 16mm and 25mm.  You definitely want the bigger of the two unless you have pencils for fingers.  Also, make sure you get the right ones.  You don't want the momentary on/off switches!  You can also order a small inline module that can be wired in to allow you to have a remote control and dimmer for the lights.  It will also allow you to change modes and have a strobe function if you really want to mess with the other boaters in your area! LOL  I had that on my Pro Angler but didn't do that for this Outback that's up for sale.

Fattening up that venison, I love it ... if, i mean when you get out of California you best keep posting up pictures of the kayak fishing.

I'd probably end up doing more kayak fishing. As it is here I feel like I need to dive over fish because the ocean conditions are rarely nice.

There's plenty of diving and spear fishing to be done down in Florida.  Lots of opportunities to shoot fish, lobster season is awesome, and scalloping in the panhandle is easy limits!!

I'm definitely out of here this summer unfortunately.  The Coast Guard is sending me to one of the new WMSL cutters in Charleston, South Carolina for the next two years.  Then after we are done there my wife and I would both like to come right back here to NorCal.  We have no plans of retiring here due to the politics, gun laws, and the cost of living but I sure do enjoy being here while I'm active duty!!

Not a problem.  If you need any more info just let me know.  I spent a lot of time down there over the years.  If you HAVE to live in South Florida I would definitely check out the areas around Fort Myers.  That place was my home away from home in college.  I've caught giant snook, reds, tarpon, grouper, and cobia around there.

Also, one last note, the farther North you go in Florida you'll generally find that the property prices fall off dramatically.

Sorry.  Just looking for cash.  My wife has her eye on another boat and just needs to part with this one before we pick up the new one.

Yeah, there are several places in the Keys that you can buy a bucket of herring and hand feed the tarpon.  If you don't let go they will inhale your arm up to the elbow!  It's a blast!! LOL

I'm from the South and lived in Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Florida.  The humidity is 100% pretty much year round but you get used to it after a few months. 

Personally I'd say Orlando and up because it's less congested, more friendly, and more open space.  Not to mention the deer hunting is pretty much all in Northern Florida with a few small exceptions.  I love South Florida for the fishing but I can make trips down there and not have to live in all that Hell.  Also, Northern Florida is less impacted by hurricanes where as South Florida gets absolutely hammered year after year. 

I enjoy both freshwater and saltwater kayak fishing so the Northern part of the state also offers more of that with the option of driving North to visit other areas in the South East. 

Jacksonville has some amazing hospitals such as Wolfson's Children Hospital.  Spent a lot of time there and the place is basically the only reason I have a son today!  It's a beautiful facility with top of the line offerings and staff.  UNF also has a lot of stuff around Gainesville which wouldn't be a bad option either.  The gulf coast of Florida is beautiful and just a short drive from Gainesville you can be scalloping, chasing tarpon, catching grouper and snapper offshore, and still have all the inshore offerings and bass fishing.

Ocala is very near Gainesville and is horse farm country.

Jacksonville Inshore Fishing

South Florida from Miami to the Keys

Lived in Jacksonville for 4 years before moving out here in 2013.  Traveled all over the state and have a lot of experience fishing around Fort Myers, Key West, and some in the Miami area.  The fishing is amazing although its rare that you'll have an area all to yourself.  The inshore saltwater fishing for trout, flounder, and redfish is amazing.  Tarpon can be found inshore and along the beaches with all the King and Spanish mackeral.  If you want red snapper you better live on the gulf coast up in the panhandle or be willing to drive there during the season.  The hunting is hit or miss.  I did very well on ducks but for big game most head North.  There is decent deer hunting but most is by lottery or on private land.  TONS of hogs and they are fairly easy to get on with the state owned lands.  Turkeys are very easy to come by as well.  Most of the deer hunters around Jacksonville belonged to hunting clubs in South Carolina and drove up regularly. 

If I was looking to move back I would definitely check out areas above Orlando.  Most of the bigger cities have a decent crime rate but the surrounding areas have plenty of small country towns.  Jacksonville is considered Southern Georgia by most (LOL) and for good reason. Lots of country rednecks around and hunting and fishing opportunities abound.

What exactly are you looking for in a new hometown?  Do you want country, woods, and space between neighbors?  Are you looking for access to a major city or airport?  Does your employment  depend on being near anything specific?
