Saturday's lesson was warm air + cold lake = fog. Early season is a good time to stay away from areas too close to the big lake (Michigan). As long as we were on the river side of the bridge, it was clear and warm but when we went underneath the road bridge to Pidgeon Lake, it got pretty foggy and cooled off considerably. We stayed close to shore, but didn't go too far as it is a popular place for fishing boats to put in and go out through the channel to the big lake. We will…Continue

Since Ive been wanting a precision pack for awhile and since I havent been working because of the injury and now the bank is a little dry, I made one! Wish I would have done a step by step, but I was kind of just tinkering around and it was a spur of the moment, no blueprints, no guiddelines. Just cut. It can fit 6 tackleboxes side by side and I can also fit a TON of gear in the pouches. So glad I did this as Im very happy with the finished product. I took a milk crate and cut of the two…Continue
I had a client booked today for a redfish trip. He tested me last night saying that he wouldn't be able to make it today. I had already done the "hard work" of planning for the trip, so I went fishing anyway. I'm glad I did because the fishing was off the hook today.
The redfish bite early was pretty good on a falling tide, but nothing compared to the red hot action about 2 hours into the incoming tide. Once the water got up against the grass and started to cover the oyster mounds the…Continue
This cover is for transporting your Commander with all your fishing gear and supplies loaded in the kayak. The cover is made from a 200 Denier Nylon, poyurathane coated materail that is water proof, and fade resistant. It is made with 5 straps that are permantely attached to the cover for security and protection. You can transport your kayak with the cover on, and keep prying eyes away from the goodies inside, and the weather out.
I make these covers as first come first served and I…Continue

Some of you know how impressed I've been with the Malone Kayak Racks, especially the Seawing with Stinger. Well, things have gotten easier for me this year with my Malone MicroSport trailer. I love it and don't have to put the kayaks on the Outback. Actually, getting them up there was less of a hassle than tying them down, and that was tougher with two on the top.
The trailer comes unassembled, but if you can follow directions and are "reasonably" handy (which is what I am),…Continue

Here's another great way to take a picture when you're alone.
I bought this little flexible tripod at Walmart and found that it works great with my waterproof Canon D10 camera. I spent a couple of days on the water and just left it attached. I've attached a picture from last Sunday. Not the biggest smallie, but a sample of how this little outfit works.
I know we all feel that way from time to time, but this week it's really getting to me.
May in particular is driving me nuts. The first week of May I jumped on a plane to Rome, rode in a taxi across the country for meetings, then back to Rome to catch a flight home. I landed in SC one night and left the next morning for the JAX Classic.
Thankfully I was home the following week and able to attend a friends retirement party, then fish with Jim and…Continue

Last Friday I finally got out in my new Commander 120 Angler. Great day on the small lake with 25-30 mph winds, but still had fun and caught some bass. I also was out the next two days in much better conditions and was very impressed with the Commander.
Things I really like:
* Ability to stand, and not just for sight fishing and seeing structure in clear water. Stretching the legs.
* The two seating options are great. And, having the ability to remove the…Continue

Got out for my usual Thursday afternoon/evening kayak fishing run, dirty red tide water on the inside, cleared up a little on the outside. Tied up to some kelp hoping for a sea bass, watched bait fly all around, but no fish for me, just another nice sunset.

WOW What a weekend!!!!
I got home from a trip to Italy a little after 8 pm Thursday night; unpacked one bag and packed another so I could head to Jacksonville at the crack of dawn on Friday. The trip down took FAR LONGER than expected (thank you Georgia DOT for shutting down I-95 South for over an hour), but once in town everything turned into a great big bag of good times.
I met my fishing partner at Oak Harbor and prcoeed to do a little bit of low tide…Continue

After having busted the drum the other the day, I got numerous calls letting me know that the cobias had popped up in "EPIC" numbers about 60 miles south of me. I was very excited to hear this, yet I was a little shocked, because it is a couple /few weeks early for them.
But, just cause they were early didn't mean that we wouldn't be hunting them the next day. :-)
Sure enough--they showed up in my spot…Continue
