Hello,

First post, from the Tampa Bay area in Florida. I have seen this site come up in so many of my google searches I thought it would be worth registering.

My name is Matt, I have a Key West 22 foot center console (2220 bluewater) that has a full Furuno electronics suite on it.

I enjoy trolling for Little Tunny and eventually Blackfin if they ever come in close enough for me, as well as bottom fishing for snapper, grouper, and hogfish.

I will likely be about 99.5% thread lurking and 0.5% posting.

Thank you for an excellent resource. Here's a pic of my boat.

    Welcome Brother. We hope you being something new....to the "conversation". I have long believed that techniques unique to certain areas (East Coast vs West Coast) .... and fish types can be used on both coasts... if adjusted properly... by a wise and astute angler. Adapting ... always increases possibilities.

    Welcome to the mayhem!

    I just visited the Tampa area earlier this month for the first time, (Ozona, Dunedin)
    We had a blast. Fished two days inshore for slam fish, and one day offshore for snapper, AJ, etc.

    You are lucky to live in such a diverse area for fishing.

    Welcome, I left Tampa in 76'. Egypt Lake Elementary and Lowry Park memories. My old school Italian family , think Salesian Sisters, big in Tampa, still lives in San Antonio.
    I've met lots of good people on this site. Couple have turned out to be lifelong friends. Hope you have the same experience here.
