Where would you go for vacation/fishing in January/February

5 posts in this topic

Texas or Florida

Mostly it would be laying around on the beach relaxing with the chance to get out for some offshore fishing.  I saw that somebody posted in the Florida forum that they rented kayaks and fished in the cannels that sounds fun also.

Is there a better time to go to one of these places to have good fishing and still nice weather.  I can go between November and April (and not when spring break is going on).

Thanks you the reply's,

Texas? Really? Worst vacation state ever (ok-I just had a really bad experience). But seriously, Texas beaches suck. Florida is way better (plus the eye candy on the south beach beaches are unreal)!

No better place to be that time of year, than northeast Minnesota! Lake trout through the ice beats out south beach or Disney world any day of the week!

I don't know. Typically I would agree but the scenery was reeeeeealy good there last time I went. Plus, in Florida you can go watch the Twins! (LOL)

Costa Rica.   We went this past Feb.  Airfare to Libera was very good.  Fished from the beach in morning/evening and had fun chasing the schools that would swim through.  Do some research and you can plan to go to areas with better fishing and charter options.  Certain species are better in different seasons.   We went out on a small boat twice, first time got skunked and the motor broke down, second time we got into some small tuna which were fun to catch.  Small boat guides have crappy gear, bring your own if at all possible.   We watched another boat catch a rooster fish, hell of a fight.    Send me a PM if you want more info.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
