The Water Haul Cast: A Useful Cast to Master

In saltwater fly fishing a long (50-plus feet) accurate cast is often required to be successful at catching fish. This cast is called the double haul. The double haul is a wonderful cast once mastered and will make it possible for the fly angler to not only cast his or her fly to greater distances but also help when casting into the wind.

Hot Action on Eight-Day Trip Aboard the American Angler

The anglers who headed out in mid-October aboard the 90-foot American Angler, out of Point Loma Sportfishing in San Diego, with Captain Ray Lopez at the helm, experienced multi-species Nirvana on an eight-day Penn Fishing University excursion. This October eight-day trip is known as the Fall Variety Special, and it more than lived up to its billing, with 27 different species of game fish caught.

Good on the Fish and Fisherman – Dehooking Device

A simple T-handle de-hooker can be a total game changer, especially if you do any bottom fishing. It can minimize the injuries that your caught fish take.

Florida Captains Tackle Louisiana Marsh During IFA Redfish Series Championship

For years, seven to be exact, I’ve been chasing redfish around the state. That includes both coasts and the panhandle. I’ve even ventured into Alabama and have made the run as far as the Pascagoula River in Mississippi. This was all part of fishing three different redfish tournament series with my long time tournament partner, Captain Jay Withers.

Hunt for the American Alligator on Lake Okeechobee

It was one of those Florida nights where everything was very still, the black water we were floating in looked like a big mirror. It was hard to determine where the water stopped and the sky began. The only thing that gave it away was the eerie red eyes that were staring back at us. We were on the great Lake Okeechobee in the central part of Florida hunting down the American Alligator! To say that my clients and myself were excited would be an understatement. We were ecstatic!

Top Ten Fishing Tips

Catching fish encompasses a two-pronged approach. You have to locate your quarry and then convince it to eat.

Angler Hooks First Goliath Grouper on Florida’s Treasure Coast

The guide wore the worst poker face ever. His cautioning instruction was almost laughable. His wry grin totally gave away his hand. For a fleeting moment, and as line hopelessly disappeared into the tannin-stained water, the angler’s day passed through his memory the way a near-death experience flashes one’s life before his eyes. He almost—almost—wished he hadn’t tangled with that pre-dawn 100-pound tail-walking tarpon. He nearly regretted the two tackle-testing tugs of war against snook topping 30 pounds. He came close to wishing he hadn’t been compelled to cast a topwater plug into a raging school of daisy-chaining 40-pound jack crevalles.

Old School Rules When it Comes to Sharpening Your Knives

As several of the fish filleting, skinning and deboning videos on the website (www.barefootfishing.net) have been viewed several thousand times, I have also received numerous emails requesting information regarding the super sharp blades used, and what techniques I use to get them razor sharp. Normally I contribute to Coastal Angler Magazine and The Angler Magazine with fishing/rigging articles, but decided this topic could be just as helpful, perhaps even more so than any article on rigging.
