Take a little trip to Valley Forge in January. Hold a musket ball in your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two. There won’t be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle, so just wait your turn. Take your cleats and socks off to get […]

March 10,2004 — Spring is Here!! Capt. Ted Springer spent the last two days scouting for upcoming charters. He found good reds on the sand in about 1 to 2 feet of water during the middle of the day. Lures of choice were bone and chartreuse She Dogs. Fish moved up after 9:00 A.M. and […]
November 5, 2006 — “Wow…November” What happened to Oct? Seems I lost an entire month! What can I say, but Fall Feeding Frenzy! With back to back groups last month seems I lost track of time, not a bad deal! Problem is our fishing was good one day mediocre the next. With our 3 rd […]
October 18, 2005 — Holy Toledo The NLCS and local conditions are apparently a symbiotic relationship: dramatic strikeouts and long long homeruns! Just like the serving of disappointment served up by the diminutive David Eckstein and goliath Fat Albert of the hated St Louis Cardinals, mother nature decided to throw us a mixed bag of […]

Re: Official Word on East Cut Dredging Brandon, this is a lot of hard work on your part to secure sometthing of value for all of us. We should all be able to chip in and come up with some idea each in our own network of fisherman and locations, much like hygridgrills has commented […]
Re: Official Word on East Cut Dredging Wet I have incorporated as a 501 c 3 and have our first board meeting Wednesday to start the ball rolling to get the funds together! And no, you are not being naive, 1.5M is relatively easy to raise. I have already started the inroad process on a […]
Re: New To Wade Fishing Ashley, Hey great name…same as my wife's! 😀 Unless on shell, or oysters, I may be the wrong person to ask becuase I frequently wade barefooted. There are numerous stingrays in the bay; however, the water is so clear where we fish, and this time of year we are typically […]
