Me, the wife, friends Tom & Karen hit the boca pier for some easy fishing. Caught 3 nice sheepshead, plenty swimming around the pilings but would not bite. Castnetted some big mullet, cut some up and threw out a couple of shark poles. Hour later my dawia sounds off, 100lb power pro peeling off the reel, hour half later 7ft+ bullshark on top, could not get on the pier, cut line, released for another day, 200lb?, had a 3ft girth nice shark

Nice! The girls went to Boca Beach today while the guys went fishing in the harbor (didn't get much, windy). What part of PC are you from? I'm off Edgewater.

Nice bull.... kind of makes you want to take dip when it gets hot... doesn't it? :eek:

I am FINALLY leaving Boca Raton this weekend for the west coast. I know, I should not complain that I get to spend some time down here in the winter but these.... are not my people. And without a boat, the fishing here sucks.

Off to St Pete beach for a little over a week to wade the flats in Ft DeSoto and steal my sisters skiff to chase Reds and trout on the flats in the back... have been looking forward to this for a month!

As for Boca, Delray, and Deerfield..... SEE YA! :wave:

Looks like we've got the makings of a BASSBARN SOUTH. I'm just south of Englewood/Grove City off Placida Road at the south end of Lemon Bay, 4 miles north of the Boca Grande Causeway.

Catch 'em up!

Takes me about 10 minutes also, no lock. I'm familiar wit SGC, looked there when I bought 3 yrs ago, very nice but I didn't want to deal with the lock and the HOA.

We'll all have to get together some day, seems like a lot of barners are moving south...we'll need our own forum here soon :D.

Man this brings back memories. I lived in rotonda and went to lemon bay high school. Fished that pier a lot. Did some fishing and shrimping off that pier. Even caught scorpions at night there they would come out of the cracks of the pier at night. Me and a couple friends would sometimes camp in the old building at the end off the pier and just fish all night it was pretty cool doing that stuff as a teen.:thumbsup:
