      Rich No problem. I would love to take y'all out. Let me know.
    2. Rich Pardy
      If I can talk the GF into making a stop in that area on our way to the Keys I will let you know to set something up, thanks!!
    3. Capt. Kenneth Walker
      Rich, Come on down, the bass are fat & happy in April, just at the end of the spawn. Water is warming up and they are usually biting. Contact me and we can set ...more something up. I'll show you what this shiner fishing is all about.
    4. Rich Pardy
      I actually might have a chance to get down there in early April.
    5. Capt. Kenneth Walker
      Me too Rich, but some days we get really lucky and call it skills. Lol. But Morris is right, you need to get down and fish in some water and not thru the ice, and ...more thaw out. We did get down to 28 this morning, but it will be 75 tomorrow. Gotta love Florida.

      Rich, get down here, thaw out and get one!!!

      I dream of days when I could catch 2 big bass like that in one day.

      Thanks Capt. I am going to be fishing the Stick Marsh in late January. Got a few trips set up. Need a bass fix
    12. Capt. Kenneth Walker
      You're correct there. My son's fish was over 27 and stayed in the high 8's. When I saw the head / mouth, I just knew he had a 12+ and I even got excited. ...more Scales don't lie. I even tried 2 different scales. Same results. Just super skinny. Hope that changes , next month. Nice reds ur catching !
    13. Morris Campbell
      Nice one Kenneth!! They sure aren't fat yet. That one should crack ten with that length!!!
