Fish Falling in the Boat

This summer was spectacular and the fall has been nothing short of amazing. The redfish this time of year are entering their spawning time and the fish are starting to really school up. The other day we ran into a massive school of fish and ended up landing close to 40 redfish. Just this past […]

Fishing Report for August 2020

This past month has been a wild one. I went from having one of the best months for charters and fishing in July to a very slow August. I know we are getting into the slow season, but that doesn’t mean the fishing is slow by any means. The live bait continues to be plentiful […]

Tarpon time in the Bay

I love this time of year beside the fact that is unbelievably hot out. Tarpon have been pushing down the coast starting in late April and by may in full swing. It takes some time for these fish to travel up the bay and make their way on to some of the flats and in […]

Summer Fun!

These past few weeks have been spectacular and its only getting better. Recently I have been focusing on my live bait game. Netting white bait and chumming the flats with excellent results. Lots of redfish and countless snook. Some days have been double digit redfish and countless snook with a few big trout mixed in. […]

1st Place in Power-Pole Redfish Tour Tournament

Saturday the 21st was a first for many things. It was the first tournament I have fished here in Tampa. It was also a well known tournament that brought out some big names in the redfish tournament world. Capt. Todd Young of Reel Memories Charters asked me to fish this strictly artificial tournament with him. […]

Redfish fishing at its best!

The month of February has been spectacular. Every time I have gone out fishing being it a charter or just scounting has been fantastic. All the flats are covered with redfish and they seem to want to eat everything in their paths. One moring we caught 15 redfish using 6 different types of lures. Another […]

Winter time fishing is “Red Hot”

The last few time out have been excellent for redfish. However some days the fish are chewing the other days it takes every trick in the book to get them to eat. The last three times out I have seen close to a 100 redfish each trip, however only a half dozen are coming to […]

School is cool!

This winter has shaped up to be a good one so far. As usual when the water gets cold the fish tend to school up. Trout fishing has been off the hook good. Lots of small trout, but some slot and over slot mixed into the madness. My last three charters have boated over 70 […]

November bite is strong!

Slayed it today. Started the day trying to net some bait. It was going well until I tried to move and my power pole stopped working. Had to empty my hatch and pull the hydraulic lines. Then pull up my power pole and tie it up. Didn’t get a ton of bait but I mostly […]

Red Hot October!

What an amazing day with Dave, Bill and Brad from Minnesota. Pick up was at 10:30. I started the fishing solo targeting trout. I caught 10 and then went to look for bait. For the next hour and a half I did not see one bait. I decided to run back and check again. To […]
