Remember Who Showed You the Ropes in Fishing?

Do you remember who showed you how to fish? A parent, grandparent, family friend, or sibling? A work friend dramatically improved my fishing knowledge.

Wade Fishing – Knowledge That Could Save Your Life

Seeing a five foot bull shark less than fifty feet away is definitely something that will raise the hair on the back of your neck, and put a little fear in you. Some quit wade fishing altogether.

“No Dead Bait” Fishing with Captain Mike

I’m Ron and I’m all about fishing. I try to fish with a different charter boat every week or two. My bottom line is this: “I will never recommend a boat I haven’t fished on.” If a captain and crew doesn’t perform to my satisfaction you are not going to see their name printed in my articles, period.

Fall Snapper Season, Really?

As many of you know, the Gulf Council has recently voted to have a fall red snapper season. Good news, eh? Yeah, I think so, but it could have been better. There are lots of moving parts involved in this, and I think it would be worthwhile to check them out, because in the next few months and years, these parts will still be moving, and more (and perhaps better) decisions will depend on them. First a quick summary of what went into creating the extended season.

Let’s talk about fresh water for a change. Mexico has the best bass fishing in the world. Well, that’s what I think. There are three lakes that Charles and I fish. It is not uncommon for us to catch ten to twelve pounders in all of them. You fish them mostly the same way as you do anywhere with top water, crank baits, swim baits and the old standby, plastics.

Carp for Continual Summer Fun!

Carp, a Eurasian fish introduced here in the late 1870s, were thought to be a handy gamefish to replace the loss of native fishes along with being a yummy meal. The gamefish part lost a little of its flavor when it was realized that carp would not hit lures. They were also low on the choice of seafood menu items.
