  • Do you eliminate salt before a dental visit?

    Well, I don't know about you, but I did. As some of you may know through my saltwater posts/pics, I have had difficulty giving up my salt to transition into freshwater pursuits this season. I concocted a way to help make this transition happen. I decided to make the venue of choice the St. John's river. Although a considerable distance from the West coast(one way-100 miles+-), the section I chose also offers a shad run(best in 10 years) to add to the menu this time of year. Something about the St. John's river and the influence it yields to the many lakes it feeds, the coloration, the overall health/size of the fish, wildlife sightings etc. actually place it high on my go to list.
    As we age, the need to go to the dentist generally increases, so cancelling/or adjusting fishing plans are regretfully encountered. So, yesterday I decided to invite my dentist Carlos, who some of you met at a Lake Monroe slabfest a year or so ago. I informed him to meet up at the ramp with no equipment. When he saw that there was no arsenal of longrods etc.and only 4 rods total in boat, I think he thought I had misused some of his pain med prescriptions. Well, we had a blast catching hickories(20 +-), specks and his favorite, a fat 4 lb. cat. Ultralight spinning tackle, micro 1/96 oz hand-tied jigs under a bobber, yielded 50 or so single pole bank spawning crappie(bigger fish were close to 14"). Many fish were caught w/bare jig but minnows were also used when needed. Shad were long-casted with tandem shad darts on med-light spinning gear. 75 degree w/t.
