Florida Keys May/June time.

 

Out of season so is cheaper and quieter, its is also hot hot hot, but fishing is also hot.

 

Can highly recommend http://www.bananabay.com/resort.php we stayed there 3 years on the trot.

Not sure of prices now but a few years ago virgin had some realy good deals.

 

I can hook you up with a florida fishing forum i used.

I found fishing buddies from Nebraska and Ireland also holidaying at the same time

that i hooked up with and shared costs of self drive boats and charters.

 

I have discovered some good shore marks that i can share also.

 

In Marathon there is a K-Mart supermarket (across the road from Bananabay) , half the store is taken up with fishing equipment and bait, heaven.

(Also cheap for you daily living requirements)

 

If Florida floats your boat, then i have loads of info and contact's.

You will not be alone in the Keys ;)

:lol: You're just about tempting me. as Mrs B says, "Instead of spending £20,000 on a boat, plus all the other expenses, why don't you spend the money on a couple of foreign fishing holidays a year"? Makes sense, I think I'll give it a go. :lol:

Norma said much the same thing as Mrs B

 

Places to consider.

Florida has already been mentioned

The Indo Pacific is good for bill fish - look at Kenya (Malindi) , Baja California (Cabo San Lucas) and Costa Rica (Golfito) A good chance of catching at all three places.

 

Nearer home, there is Madeira. Not so likely to catch there, but if you do it could be a whopper.

Have a trawl through some past posts - mine, Happy Dude's, and the late Gerry Castle's (Argyll)

...and google the places I have mentioned.

Na get the boat Norm, we'd be mates. B)

Free to choose apart from the ones where the trust poked their nose in. Common eel. tope. Bass and sea bream. All restricted.


New for 2016 TAT are the main instigators for the demise of the u k bass charter boat industry, where they went screaming off to parliament and for the first time assisting so called angling gurus set up bass take bans with the e u using rubbish exaggerated info collected by ices from anglers, they must be very proud.

Upgrade, the door has been closed with regards to anglers being linked to the e u superstate and the failed c f p. So TAT will no longer need to pay monies to the EAA anymore as that org is no longer relevant to the u k . Goodbye to the europeon anglers alliance and pathetic restrictions from the e u.

Angling is better than politics, ban politics from angling.

Consumer of bass. where is the evidence that the u k bass stock need angling trust protection. Why won't you work with your peers instead of castigating them. They have the answer.

Recipie's for mullet stew more than welcomed.

Angling sanitation trust and kent and sussex sea anglers org delete's and blocks rsa's alternative opinion on their face book site. Although they claim to rep all.

new for 2014. where is the evidence that the south coast bream stock need the angling trust? Your campaign has no evidence. Why won't you work with your peers, the inshore under tens? As opposed to alienating them? Angling trust failed big time re bait digging, even fish legal attempted to intervene and failed, all for what, nothing.

Looks like the sea angling reps have been coerced by the ifca's to compose sea angling strategy's that the ifca's at some stage will look at drafting into legislation to manage the rsa, because they like wasting tax payers money. That's without asking the rsa btw. You know who you are..

Eating wild caught fish is good for my health, reduces food miles and keeps me fit trying to catch them........it's my choice to do it, not yours to stop me!
