Re: The edge

We do it from time to time. In Islamorada the reef drops from 50-60 down to 75-105 depending on where you are. Tons of fish roam that ledge. You can chum bottom fish up, you can run a flasher rig,...

Re: Source of Bulk Colored Rubber

It is possible to order 50ft at a time but not only black and Amber. They require 1000ft order for color runs.

Re: Small id bands dyneema knots popping out

I use water as a lubricant. Dip the wishbone knot in the water, dip the rubber in the water and jam it in. Alcohol and soap both dry out rubber and cause premature degradation. Silicon never dries...

Re: Cubera hunting

I usually see them in +50 feet down here but I've seen some huge ones on wrecks over 180 feet. They seem to be pretty solitary animals. I say that because I seldom see more than 1 on a wreck or...

Re: Great white shark named George stalks Everglade waters

Murky vis coupled with abundant fish supply...no brainer. Manatees and alligators are all over the shoreline and tributaries.

Good luck on your build Wyatt. I know that the Neptonics reverse mech will fit a 9/32 and 5/16 shaft. If you are building an enclosed track you can bore the track 3/8 inch deep and it will line up...
