Going solo

Had a chance to sneak in a quick solo trip to a favorite bay this morning. A seriously low tide exposed many areas that are normally under water, forcing fish into narrow channels. I found two nice snook, scores of chunky speckled trout and a lone bluefish along channel edges, all of which we ...

Slow day down south

Headed way down south below Chokoloskee on Saturday with MoJoe, hoping that a recent bout of warm weather would kick some life into chilly fishies. Alas, the tides were much weaker than anticipated, and we saw sparse action. (Note to self: focus on tides above all else). But no complaints her ...

Steel dreams

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOLKPSVS1UgI've been lucky enough to chase a wide variety of fishies in other parts of the world. One of those targets was feisty steelhead in rivers and small streams up Canada way. And I learned, in short order, that these fish - basically big, mean-spirited r ...

Fishing Tip: remove an imbedded hook

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKAAGWZskGg&feature=relatedThis unlucky soul was impaled by a ridiculously large treble hook, though the way he's sloshing back the Maker's Mark, he likely doesn't care. I'm not posting this video for shock value - I'm adding it because the gentleman who get ...

We ran to a little waterfront bar for a drink and a bite of fish, and afterward hit some dock lights in the bay. At this time of year snook stack up under the lights to warm up and pick off bait fish, an ...

Gooooooooooooooo Gators!

We do our best to stick to angling-related banter around here, but it's not every day that our college team makes it to the championship game...for the second time in three years. The Gators outlasted Alabama in a classic ballgame to win the SEC crown and clinch a spot in the title game. Tebow has a ...

When using a trolling motor or (especially) when poling a shallow-water skiff, trim up your main motor but leave the skeg in the water. By getting most of the motor's lower unit above the waterline, you'll greatly reduce drag, making the skiff much easier to push along. In addition, the skeg will a ...

Bad pants off Montauk

My buddy Pete sent me these pics of himself and a couple of friends tossing flies at stripers and blues off of Montauk. The images hearken back to trips past in which Pete and I braved the nasty Atlantic off of Chatham, Cape Cod. The rolling swells, the bass and blues thrashing on top, the picturesq ...
