A boat is a hole in the water that you pour money into. :D I love to fish in the ocean. I mostly fish the piers now. I have a 17' flats skiff but don't pull it to the coast often.
I like to slip down to Nag's Head in the fall.
I was stationed at Key West in the Navy, did a lot of fishing there. I would like to pull the boat down and fish the gulf again, but for what the extra gas from towing it down and back, I would be ahead to rent a boat.

I love salt water fishing !!! My Grandaddy did too - nothing else in the world was as satisfying to him as sitting in his little john boat fishing the salt water marshes of Cherry Grove Beach, SC..... Sounds like a great day :{_}: Congrats !

I like to fish, but it seems tough to come up with the time to do it. I guess that translates to I don't love it or I would find more time.

Every once in a while I load up the truck with fishing gear, the propane grill and a cooler and go to a great spot at the start of Narragansett bay (Fort Adams) and throw in a line... one time someone asked me what I was fishing for and I said any fish stupid enough to go for the lure on the end of the line. Still looking for that stupid fish.

That is something I have always wanted to try, but I have only seen an ocean once (unless you count the Mississippi ocean :D ), and that was from a distance, and have never been on or in one.

EJP, I guess we tend to take the familiar for granted... Heck, I go by a beach on my way to work, but I haven't 'been there' in at least 10 years.

The most impressive piece of ocean I have ever seen (does a bay count?) is the Bay of Fundy. This is Rudi and Em at Hopewell Rocks in NB. The tides are giant because of the shape of the bay and the rocks behind them are half way under water at high tide.

Look at the size of the people...

I spent a few days fishing the end of long island sound and block island sound a few weeks ago. We were fishing for black fish "tautog". We limited out (4 pers person over 14") and we limited out one day. I never ate them before but I think they are my new favorite fish. As good or maybe better than cod or haddick. We trapped crabs the night before to use as bait. They ranged from 4 to 8 lbs. That was the first week of October. Now that bow season is over in Vermont (we didn't get close enough to shoot anything worth shooting) Were headed to Kenora, Ontario rifle hunting for whitetail the first week of November.

This thread reminds me of my grand paw, we got together a few times and went to Pt. Lookout MD. where we would rent a boat and spend the day fishing in the bay. That was about 20 years ago and the only type of fishing I've ever done. Sure was pretty out there, I'd like to get off shore some day again.
I can't even remember what kind of fish we caught but there was a bunch of them....

well yogie, that would be a good idea for the future, maybe all of the fella's that are interested in fishing can get together and charter a boat out of a central (east coast location). :?:
