Great Day On The NMZ "No Motor Zone"

Written by

After talking with Alan Ryland about the day he and Steve Brand spent on the "NMZ", the location of our next Boondoggle. I knew I needed to get out there and put hooks in fishes faces! So I met up with Alan around 7:15 or so, got all unloaded and off we went in search of Reds and Trout. The wind was light out of the west and the water was very cool already so we knew it would be a bit of a waiting game until the flat warmed up a bit. I started the day using a Slayer Inc SST in Gumbo color rigged on a Tommy Head Jig! As the water warmed so did the action, I caught a nice slot red pictured here.

A Return to Cow Creek

Written by

For my third trip back to the water, Greg, Rik, Steve and I decided a trip to Cow Creek was in order. With pesky north winds predicted for Saturday, it would offer us some protection and hopefully allow for some good fishing. With a major solunar feeding period right at sunrise, we met early and got out on the water in quick time. With a strong outgoing tide, hitting the points would be today’s theme. At our first stop, Greg and I both quickly hooked up on our first casts with some medium-sized trout - nothing to get excited about. We moved on and eventually got split up from Rik and Steve.

While talking with a good friend the other day, I realized that it had been over a year since I had fished the good afternoon outgoing tides we have this time of year in Tampa Bay. I had regularly fished these tides at my local park, but since they increased the fees for an after-hours pass, I just haven’t gotten out.

A Land Based Article

Written by

When the rain falls here on Florida’s Space Coast, you know the fishing around the culverts and creek mouths will be good in the Intercoastal Waterway. The typical species show up: redfish, trout, ladyfish, black drum, and sometimes snook. However, every so often the “Silver King” will show his face - not the hundred pound size, but rather the baby version. In fact, this showing of baby tarpon has some in the science community questioning how and where these tarpon come from.

Last Trip of May

Written by

This last trip of May found me in familiar waters, with familiar faces. But there were some twists: we added a new member to the crew, and brought along some new lures. Simmons Park was the place, and the anglers were me, Greg and his son Robert, and our friend Walt. The new addition was Cesar, who is working as the Outreach Coordinator for the Tampa Bay Chapter of Heroes on the Water.

May Kayak Fishing Report

Written by

If any of you have been following me on Facebook or the forum here, you know that I have been dealing with some health issues the past few months. An unexplained illness has left me very weak and exhausted at the end of the day, or after any activities. I am still working with my doctors trying to figure it out.

Spring Training

Written by

Due to a commitment at work, I missed out on the incredible Chokoloskee Boondoggle trip to the 10,000 Islands area of South Florida. Well, this past week work paid me back. I got a chance to go to Florida to work for a few days, and had the bonus of taking Thursday and Friday off to do some fishing. I quickly hatched a plan - not only was I going to get out on the warm Florida waters, but I was going to get to finally get to give the new Jackson “Cuda” a sea trial.

Mini-Doggle: Definition - Not quite a Boondoggle - almost, but not quite.

Kayak fishing for me is all about the adventure. Not knowing what’s around the next corner, the anticipation of an unknown area and what it could hold, the challenge of unlocking those hidden secrets - that’s what draws me to the sport. So it was a no-brainer when Chip Gibson called me and asked if I wanted to fish Mosquito Lagoon. Did I want to join him and Brad? ”Of course!"
