    Hello everyone,

    I have just recently moved back to Florida and ready to get back to fishing, both Freshwater and Saltwater. I grew up fishing the lakes and rivers of the Florida Panhandle. After joining the military in the early 90's I have moved all over the country and done all types of fishing from Jacksonville to California. Now that I am back in Florida I am ready to relearn where and how to fish my local waters.

    So of you are ever in need of a fishing buddy just let me know.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Are you a boat fisherman..... I really want to be a boat fisherman but you have to have a boat. I am actually looking right now just have not found the right boat for me and the family.
    what kind to you mostly do? Inshore, offshore, surf? I have mostly fished inshore both freshwater and saltwater and not owning a boat has limited me to mainly areas that can be accessed by foot traffic,, However I love to fish in general and have taken several overnight offshore fishing trips. I have not surf fished in a very long time, actually since the early 90's when I was stationed here at Mayport.

    Ha! Yeah, I took some time when we moved here to try and get enough of a feel for the area and where I would be fishing to determine what style boat would be the best fit. It’s funny because I’ve become mostly a kayak fisherman and haven’t used my boat in months...

    Welcome! Always good to have some fellow fishermen up here on the north end! It doesn’t get much better than the north/central east coast of FL...I think you’ll find this community is a wealth of knowledge.
