I'm staying on island sat night.
Suggestion to captains is to bring both a bow & stern anchor.

General Discussion / Re: When to use a full sinking fly line?
« on: April 24, 2014, 07:15:03 PM »
I use full sink almost exclusively offshore.  I use many different grain weights 350 to 1000 grn with 10 thru 14 wt rods.  Both integrated heads & shooting heads.

Both allow casting distance to increase versus wf lines, but require practice.  The casting stroke & feel are very different.

Integrated heads are expensive compared to shooting heads.  I mainly use teeny ts lines although I just got a rio striper 350 gr.  I have both Orvis & rio heads.  A good place to get either for cheep is our auction.

I have used full sink lines for tarpon at the secret tarpon spot in poc.  4-7 ft deep.  No tarpon jumped.

Secret spot = bill day reef

Pull them up top or at least shallower.
Use chum and anchor upcurrent.  Then you can fish for them in the upper 5 ft. of the water column with typical techniqes and equipment.

You can go as sophisticated as you want on chum.  Or use the potlicker approach and use canned dog food.  Gulp makes a chum that works and comes in a resealable plastic tub for ~$25.  It works.
