I'll have to miss out, once again.   :(

I will be on a river that day.

To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

Planning this trip too.. samething I will take people with me.. try to catch big reds and jackcarval on fly at the jetties.  I have caught many big reds on 2oz jig with Gulp shrimp tail jigging in 30ft of water around the edges of jetties with trolling motor on a moving tide.. 2oz rattle traps works too...casting paralle to bank with 20# brade with a bass flipping stick,  I think a 10wt rod and heavy flie would work as well...never tried but will do this time. I have caught these big reds maybe six feet from bank in about five or six feet of water.  Do catch big trout sometimes. I have landed a fifty lbs tarpon at the jetties, fishing for trout, also forty plus pound Jack Carvelle fish....be fun on a fly... bring you lunch!!!:)

Don if you find a 40 lb Jack anywhere in POC Leave it alone! Besides breaking your rod it would probably sink your boat too. They are bad mamajama's. I have only caught one over twenty-five pounds that didn't break the rod I was using no matter what weight it was! Just ask John Purcell. Big reds are easy compared to a jack ...and I ain't lying.  There is something about that last run at the boat!  You better loosen your drag the closer you get the fish to the boat.  ;D

I'm in! Signed up and will be ready to go. Really looking forward to this one, I've never been able to align schedules and make this event. Camping on the island... cool!

Jetty fishing - gotta be ready for big fish. Sounds like I need to go shopping for heavy bite tippet and big chicken-looking flies.

Is that a strike indicator or a bobber?

        And if  you  plan on walking on the rocks at any time , I recommend a pair of old golf shoes with sharp spikes.
