We all need our waters so this week we have Eddie Dougherty helping us catch bass in the Canal, a local rock star finding bass in the surf and then Warren and Geoffrey saving wild fresh water streams. That's a fine week.
Oh what a week it was. Big national news, big warm weather, big rains and still, thankfully, more fish. November has been an easy weather month, so far, which we may pay for later on but for now, let’s talk black sea bass, stubborn bluefish, togs, and squid while we adjust the straps on our … Continue reading Secrets & squid, hope for F/V Emmy Rose, fair winds for Carl Whitney & Captain Charlie Niles
Tautog fishing has been strong for a few months now but that’s starting to change with a change in seasons. Reliable spots have been giving up just a few keeper sized fish, just a few shorts, or just simply none at all. Plus, autumn’s winds don’t help the boat fishing crowd.

Sometimes we teach them our skills and experience such pride when they shine. Sometimes we get to take a step … Continue reading This week, kids rule the seas
RIDEM Law Enforcement Chief Dean Hoxie speaks to RISAA Monday night and you should be part of the conversation.

“I’m tight!” Ray Stachelek yelled from the stern of his Everglades 230 center console. After an hour searching for fish in foggy Galilee, Captain Ray had moved west, along the beach, staying in thirty feet of water, waiting for what he hoped would happen.
