By this point, you know I have a pretty strong reaction to folks trying to sneak bananas on boats.  Believe me when I tell you the fishing gods are not to be trifled with.  This video, by Capt. Ben Chancey, shows the risk you take eating a banana on a charter – even if the fish bite, it won’t end well for you!…

I feel like every time I post a mullet run video, I gush over how it’s the coolest one ever, blahblahblah. That ends now.  Because this one wins. Guys – Christmas is coming.  Tell the lady of the house that you want to fish this event next year and book it now!

Some of us are fortunate to be able to spend time outdoors, pursuing the things we love with the ones we love.  Unfortunately, this guy is still looking.  Makes me laugh a little (LAL) every time I see it. May be a new business idea: FishingMingle.com?

Duck season in Florida is 60 days long.  Plus nine for early teal.  This means you MUST maximize your time or the season is gone.  This year, I’ve set a personal goal to be on the water 50 of those days.  This means that, for the past nine days of the f…

Joey Maxim, and his family, have endured terrible hardship.  His recovery was, and still is, long and arduous.  He lost his hopes of ever playing sports.  Of West Point. But, with a fly vise and rod, he found something else – hope. From the Vimeo page: “By some accounts, Joey Maxim died on November 21st, 2011. The car…

Want to see some guys slaying some fish?  I’m talking about absolutely putting the beatdown on a bunch of bull redfish?  This is the video for you . . .

One of our favorites, Jessica Jae, is back, this time making pancakes better than a lot of South Florida fishing guides.
