Florida Sportsman Fishing Forum Bash

The Florida Sportsman Fishing Forum is used by locals and vacationers to keep up with what is happening fishing and fun wise in Florida.  The forum denizens are planning a Keys Bash this year and are trying to decide where to have the main event.  Fishing guys like to party, but not to the point it interferes too much with their fishing.  So not too surprisingly, the Middle and upper lower Keys are higher on the list for the bash than the upper Keys and party town Key West. 

The Seven Mile Bridge is a natural barrier for Keys partiers because, well, it is seven miles long (almost anyway).  The last bash I attended was at Rum Bums, which was Fisherman's Wharf, that became Fat Buoy's before it became Salty's Grille.  Since it is hard to locate a venue that changes names that often, Porky's Bay Side has offered to host the event for the middle Keys.

The forum has a topic set up for potential attendees to vote on their preferred Keys Bash location.  If you are going to be in the Keys for dolphin fishing you should get over there and place your vote.  The last bash was a lot of fun.  It is neat being able to place a real face with the internet character. 

Since everyone met on the internet anyway, I recommended an East West challenge with the seven mile bridge as the dividing line.  We can set up a Skype type link and maybe have a little fishing derby to make it interesting.  Then even the guys stuck working or trying to find work back home can join in on the fun.

Ideas like this take a little time to mature so any input you guys might have would be welcome.  Visit the forum to see what is happening and voice your opinion.  Marathon in the Florida Keys should be your next fishing vacation destination. Join us for charter fishing, fishing guide trips or our fishing 101 so you can fish on your own with better success. Tight lines, Capt. Dallas

  1. I think the best place to fish is off the island of islamorada in the keys. All you need is a boat, hotel, and you will have an awesome islamorada vacation
