Bluefin Tuna Success!

The weather pulled a total 180! Forecast went from windy and rough to being completely slicked out.
Several miles offshore out of Cape Cod (fishing w Capt. Eric Stewart and his mates Ian, Chris, and CK) was one of the best offshore experiences I've had to date. Lots of movement and excitement w those boys! Making the trolling pass w ease until the bites turn on, and when it does you better be ready! We had several fish blow up in a bite window of 3 hours. The wind was soon to follow.

Louisiana Redfish

Louisiana has been an annual fall destination for many years and was my home both before and after Katrina. 2012/13 fall/winter produced the most spectacular redfishing I have ever seen! It's safe to say redfish central is the marsh of the Mississippi River Delta! Due to the proximity of deep water to the flats and a variety of bottoms and endless structure (oil rigs) the redfish population is rock-n healthy! If you haven't been I sure hope it’s on your bucket list!

The spring/summer migration is in full swing. Each spring tarpon migrate through the Keys up into the gulf and along the eastern seaboard. Being partial to having the first shots annually, we Keys residents and guides have been having a great season.

Good news for the World Sailfish Championships as the sails showed thick this week. The Holeman's and family had the pleasure of going offshore last week with friends on The Work of Art, a Destin based 76 Viking. Fun vessel and it is a vessel.
Robert Monroe, Robert Ashler and Katie Lynn Strode all had some great fun on a guides day off sailfishing. Katie got her first billfish and her first baptism. It was a serious one too. Laughs all around. Some close friends fishing in the tournament boated 17 of 19 yesterday before the wind. Super action packed. Pilchards, ballyhoo and a host of other bai...... Read More

This first week of 2012 was a cold one by Keys standards! It lasted all of 3 days! As a resident you have to take advantage of the little moments that Mother Nature offers is secret bounty!

Louisiana Fall Bounty

Every year my brother (Bear) and I make the pilgrimage to the vast marshes of the Mississippi River Delta a short drive outside of New Orleans. Fly fishing is usually my preferred method of targeting the monster redfish in Louisiana! One of my favorite trips to guide is certainly the post spawn breeders that are fattening up inshore before they drop back to the bays and near shore waters in the spring.

November in the Keys!

November in the Florida Keys is by far one of my favorite times of the year! So much change is a challenge and a blast to figure out! Many species are returning from the northern trip into the upper gulf and north Atlantic! As these fish begin to return to our turquoise waters the catch possibilities are endless! November is the time of variety! With the flats cooling off the deeper near shore wrecks, reefs and rocks are the ticket for a fun day! But when the weather stabilizes for a few days the permit fishing can be epic!
