Just out of curiosity, did Tim qualify at the BCC as well? Were there 2 spots?

They added a couple spots. They contacted me and said, since I finished second at the BCC they were going to offer me a spot...if I was interested.

Where is the cheapest beer ?

Congrats
Always the practical one!  Great question Dave!
I fished some salt water in Florida with Brian. While I'm no expert, what worked for us to get Reds and Trout were 4in swim baits on a 1/8oz DOA C.A.L jig. Red or white heads work. Just cast out and reel back in. No fancy pause retrieves. Reds were in shallow water 1 to 3 ft deep. Trout a bit deeper 5 to 10ft. For gear I used med and m/h spinning gear 10 to 20 pound braid with 20 pound floro leader. Quality sunglasses are a plus, I would stand up to see where the fish were on the flats. That's Florida, but I'm sure swimming a jig will work there too.
Swimming a jig is definitely on the agenda and something I do a lot here.  Having a Pro Angler with a powerpole, standing should be no problem (unless I fall in with the gators :)
Bass assassin sea shad is what Benton Parront uses .

Benton and I will be rooming together, I'm going to raid his tackle when he passes out... I will make sure I buy him enough drinks to pass out.
I can help with that plan!!

Thanks Red Rocket, I have already made some good contacts though!  Have a good trip

Rockin_Johnny, good thoughts on the tides and temperature situation, I have read some on this and hope we have good warm stable weather
Thanks for all the ideas so far, I knew you guys would be a lot of help
Dave

You're going after reds and specks. DOA swimbaits, topwater, popping cork with plastic shrimp?
Don't know much, just what I see on TV, so would be asking lots of questions.
Location ? Presentations? Influence of the tide, much tide there ?, Tide chart for tourney day, fishn shallow for tailing reds that time of year, or deeper ? There Dave, there's some questions to ask.
Good questions Brent, I have talked about presentations, but I think understanding the tide (and not ending up stranded on 3 miles of mud) will be a big challenge.  We are going after flounder as well!!

Great question and one I haven't asked yet!  Thanks randaller

Dave, here's an alternative strategy. Every issue of Kayak Angler magazine has articles/references to kayak fishermen in a variety of locations, mostly in the USA. You could go through past issues and probably find guys who fish the area you're going to be in, or alternatively figure out what fish will be there and find guys who fish for them, then contact them. Couldn't hurt to try. I'm going to be away for a week but I'll have a look through my few years of back issues when I get back.

Can I have shrimp with my Grits?

Seriously though, Brent has given you some good questions..  I think knowing the tides will be a major factor for you.  I don't know a lot about the tidal fishing but I do know the majority of the feeding is related to the tide movement.  Also may want to know how the temperatures affect the fish and their positioning.... what will they do in a cold front or warmer than average temps.
