What an awesome trip. I am not much of a writer and words wouldn't do it justice anyway.

Carolina rigs in 15-25 feet of water. 10" Black and Blue worms and 8" watermelon/red lizards. I used a Flipping stick and she used a 6'6" MH Baitcasting rod.

Her first fish ever on a baitcasting rod was 9 lbs 11 oz!! (It's now her Rod & Reel..lol)

We used Angler's Inn. Although it is more expensive than some of the others, it is a first class operation.

I think the spawn down there is closer to February but I am not sure.

brknrn,

Do you have a ballpark price per person on a trip like that?

Approximate cost per person was 2,200 including airfare. There are other outfitters nearby that you could do for 1,500 to 1,600 easily. We fished for 3.5 days.

We towed the boat to Texas last month and spent almost $1000 per person. In Texas we caught around 15-20 fish and our biggest fish was 6 lbs 6 oz.

Trips are all inclusive - Guide, lodging, meals, open bar, transportation to and from airport, etc. You can even use their rods and reels if you would like. Bring your own tackle.

The water is so low now (it must be down 25-30 feet) that they are thinking June and July might end up being some of the best months ever. Rainy season starts sometime in July.

If you were ever going to take the wife fishing this is the place to do it. I never had to lift a finger to help her re-tie, get unsnagged, get backlashes out, etc. On second thought I guess it was time consuming having her with...I had to take ALOT of pictures!

If you are implying that I never smile for pictures, that is also a Major complaint from the wife. LOL

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.

      Edit: Sounds like the 2nd moves to a 1st in the ducks clear the 2nd round of the playoffs. Not sure I would have paid that price.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
