    Thanks Bay. We were so amped we went out at 6:30 (still fairly dark) the next morning. Water was rough. Nearly got swamped on the way out and then only stayed out 1/2 hour. Had waves washing over us as we reached the beach. Like I said, we're still learning. We learned to cool it a little when the conditions aren't right. Gotta be patient.

    Here's the ugly truth about living here in TN. I now am looking forward to catching one pound smallmouth in a creek. To say that I miss the salt is an understatement.

    Pair of Rainbow Trout, Little Pigeon River

    It's an absolutely gorgeous little piece of water.

    That sounds like a plan!

    I keep forgetting to post on this thread for some reason. Last three trips have been great, Cobia season is in full swing. In two trips last weekend, we managed six keepers and a bunch of shorts.

    Also got to break in the new boat on some nice reds!

    Need some help fellows.
    I am an old fart (60)
    I grew up fishing the waters of northeast Florida. From Green Cove Spring all the way to Mayport.
    From The St Mary's River down past Marineland.
    I even did some some off shore out off Mayport.

    Twenty three years ago I moved to north Georgia and I just can't get into pond or lake fishing. Thus I rarely get a chance to wet a line in brackish or salt water.

    During the last week of this month my family and I will be up at East Hampton New York (Eastern tip of Long Island). The occasion is my oldest son's and his bride to be wedding. Part of the festivities will be a deep sea fishing trip on a boat owned by son's future father in-law

    I love off shore fishing but I do not know crap about what types of fish they have in those waters. I am curious but the main reason is that I don't want to look like a dumb ass in front of my son and his new father in-law.

    Any help or tips that any of northern boys can pass onto me will be appreciated.

    Rule #1... It's called "offshore fishing" not deep sea fishing. That's what's they write on signs to attract tourists. Rule #2.... Don't get seasick and ruin the trip for everyone. Take Dramamine before to be safe. Other than that, enjoy yourself!! Don't take it to seriously.

    I think they catch striper and flounder up there (they call it fluke). They troll big paddle tail lures and plastics for striper and fluke fishing is like bottom fishing in Florida.

    Thanks for the advise.
    I usually call it off shore to. I notice that I did use the phrase "deep sea" once in my post. I will keep your comment in mind and use the traditional term.

    As for sea sickness I never had it and I have been in some real rough and rolling chit too. I really love being out in the ocean. Even though I am confined in a boat I still feel more free than I ever could be on dry land.

    Stripper and flounder. That sounds like fun. I do know that they have some great Blued up there to.

    Striper is like the main game fish up there I think.. they can get up to 40LBs. The flounder fishing i've seen on TV looks pretty good. They catch them BIG. There are like sunken subway cars out there for artificial reefs.

    My fishing 'life' started on long island. In July you will likely go fluke fishing. Fun fish to catch and great to eat.
    Enjoy!
