I enjoy fishing for Walleye and Salmon. I do, occasionally, fish in Florida. As for Salt Strong, I look at the information that they put together and skills they promote and the techniques they use as well as the Comparison data they produce; this type of information is easily disseminated across multiple species and multiple locations. that is why I am a member.
