On the bull sharks, I forgot...my grandma got me shark week for my birthday [hours spent at her place eating home cooked meals watching that on the old Discovery channel]. Now I don't think sharks got hunting people...they just go hunting. They're indifferent. Not stupid enough to attack something they can't handle but stupid enough to not know those boundaries from time to time. This guy is hosting the show with Nigel Marvin, and they're just letting these bull sharks swim around them, and he's like "Oh it's okay...there's no blood, and they're just curious...they're not going to hurt us." Then a bull turns and administers a little "curiousity" to the guy's left calf. It's just a teaser bite, but still...these are sharks. It doesn't take much. I just think it's ridiculous and appalling how we go from wanting to kill them all in the late 70's to now wanting to hug them and send them Omaha Steaks gift baskets. It's just as dangerous to teach people, ESPECIALLY the target audience of children to young adults, that sharks AREN'T dangerous and it's OKAY to go swimming with bull sharks, as it is to teach that they are all evil and out to eat you. Why can't people find the equilibrium?

I get down to Florida at least once or twice a year, but I usually head to the Gulf Coast and fish the flats around Tampa Bay. I'll probably go down for a few days some time in May.

I've been wanting to hit Mosquito Lagoon but it's a little far. My in-laws live in Winter Haven, which is kind of right in the middle of the state, but there's just no convenient way to get to the East Coast from there.

After watching them snatch spawning snook out of the surf, I'm convinced that a lot of shallow water attacks happen because the bull sharks just dart in from deep water into the shallows and grab, and they do it so fast they don't have time to fully evaluate what they're grabbing.

I caught this lake trout in Percy Priest a few years ago. It was a cold, rainey day and I was casting a South Bend Itzzy Duzzy on four pound line when the leviathan hit. At first I thought it was a drum but Chewbacca told me it was a lake trout.

That's a snook, not a lake trout. Snook are everywhere. I've seen them at the bar.

Cheebaccr knows not hees feesh.

I'm surprised you caught it wearing that camo-

Those drum look a lot like redfish - I'm pretty sure they are in the same family. I wonder how they would taste blackened. \:\)

Sciaenidae-

Same family, different genera.

Freshwater drum taste like dirt. Blackened = burnt dirt.
