    May be bluewater trolling tomorrow for the first time this year..... marine forecast is currently suspect for going 50+ miles offshore though

    Sounds good Stinky. I passed on fishing today. I figure its gonna be very warm all week so next Saturday might really be the best time. South winds and a full moon today too.

    Just giving you more incentive to catch em up next time Stinky. Water temps here approaching mid 50's so the real fishing season is just getting started. Didn't make it out over the weekend so I wound up doing yard work on Sat. and the Avengers on Sun.

    I erroneously call myself a vegetarian. I'm actually more of a Pescatarian, because I do eat fish on occasion for extra protein when I'm feeling compromised. Especially fresh caught. My neighbor (the expert marksman I mentioned in the hunting thread), gifts me with fish all the time when the season is on. Man, oh, man, he once gave me trout so fresh, the gills and the flesh were pink. I also love smoked fish. Trout and mackerel most especially, salmon/steelhead/sockeye a close third, with horseradish. HOT horseradish, not the wimpy stuff. I love getting that weird nose freeze/brain freeze/eye-watering thing. It's great. Not a fan of bluefish (which is kind of odd, because mackerel is also a dark fish), but a friend of mine once brought homemade smoked bluefish to a Jets tailgate. It was absolutely amazing.

    StinkyB, I know you live in FL. Do you fish for Skate? I had it once a long time ago. I hated it. Probably because it wasn't prepared right. You and Cman should buy James Peterson's 'Fish & Shellfish'. It's a fish and seafood bible - but I'm guessing you both already own it. I got it as a Xmas gift years ago. It's kind of like James Beard's 'Beard on Bread'. Heh, in fact one of Peterson's other books won the James Beard Award.

    LOL, no, never..... but I have heard of people prepping them as "poor mans scallops"

    Yes, Bluefish is best on the smoker..... and into a creamcheese based fishdip :D

    My ex had a similar diet.... the only meat she ate was fish that I caught. I basically said, "Good thing yo'll eat fish because If you're not going to eat fish, you're either doing all the cooking in this house, or you're gonna starve"

    But ever since Hurricane Matthew I've barely done any fishing myself :(

    It is nice out!
    Hard to focus working at home stuck in front of a computer screen...... I keep wandering around outside.

    unfortunately most of my free time is still wasted rebuilding this house :confused: but at least I finally have a functional kitchen as of yesterday :cool:

    Checking my reels for line that needs to be replaced. Looking at Sunday for a mid range bottom fishing trip on my regular party boat (Ocean Explorer, Belmar, NJ). In several weeks, I'll be in Western Missouri fishing Truman Res. for Crappie, Catfish and Bass.. #CantWait

    Sea Bass opens May 15th.. Short season initially.. Standard hi/lo rig with a new twist this year I'm trying. Going with mackerel and squid in combo with clams to get more scent in the water.

    Grouper opened yesterday here.... unfortunately 2 days after we went out. We marked a sick ledge in 175' that looked like it was holding..... (only had trolling gear though :confused: )
    We marked two spots... named em "Rock" and "Creed". :D

    Oh yeah, I'm not anti at all.... my preference is trolling, but I'm game for all
    Personally, I like to troll through the day, then later in the day go back to spots we mark while trolling and break out the bottom bumping gear..... and hopefully put some more meat in the box.

    Last weekend I asked my buddy If I needed anything, and prefaced that my shit is displaced everywhere (rods at my parents, tackle in random spots in my garage, etc) but he said no bottom gear, just trolling because "he felt confident"..... kiss of death right there

    btw.... I got a 114H off ebay last fall.... to pair with a stout Penn rod I have. Gonna spool with 80# spiderwire (got a deal on some)
    Ready for the big dogs
