September 12, 2005 — Move Over Rover Simply being the youngest guide out of the lodge can make times at the lodge around the older salts quite unbearable. To add fuel to the flame, out fish the old salts and there is hell to pay. I think the familiar saying around here goes something like […]

Running of the Bulls — August 1, 2007 July is a special month for many reasons. The dog days are just settling in, fishing patterns and approaches roil and broil through the lazy heat of summer, bluebird skies stretch on for miles, and the Bulls of Pamplona make their desperate tirade through the streets of […]

Re: Fishing Skinny Water Damn Roam, How do I answer that question without writing a book? I will try to hit the highlights for you. 1. Easiest way is to look for working birds. Do not be fooled by the little terns, liar birds, just flitting about the surface and flying parallel to the shore […]
Re: Ladies Weekend Questions Hey Carrie , far as fishing gear, the lodge provides everything. However, most folks like to use their own gear. A typical 6’6” with reel of choice and lined no heavier than 12 pounds. I think we are also going to have a few offshore boats running so that option will […]

Re: Tackle… Storage Thanks guys. In the interim I have been to Academy for some “research” and I think I've come up with a good solution, and not unlike the ones you've mentioned. I plan to use a softside box that comes with hard plastic bins, however I will remove most of the bins and […]

Re: Inshore Fishing South of the Border LeshYes there are some areas down there which are so remote no netting. On our recent trip down Brandon and I saw a bay with very limited access. That remoteness has saved it from over fishing. A group of us are making an exploratory trip down in the […]

Re: Rules? Just be respectful. Most of the ranchers are fishermen too. I've been stopped once as I was picking up garbage and the guy told me to hit his pump about a mile inland if I ever needed water. Most guys know if your fishing or poaching. bds
Re: FULL MOON FISHING HArd to beat it. However, if he is new to wading, I'd break him in slow and remind him to shuffle, shuffle. Other than that, full moon is fun. Don't leave the dock until an hour or so before moonrise.
