    Catch of the day (pictures)

    To say fishing has been good is an understatement. had 2 kids on the boat Saturday that had never caught a redfish before. We casted to trapped fish in tiny creeks all morning and caught like we were fishing in a barrel. It got to the point anything that wasn’t over slot just wasn’t exciting to them any more ha!

    Best Extreme Rain Gear

    I have had good experiences with GILL for both fishing and sailing. As another option for "breathable" look for a pair of breathable stocking foot waders. you can cut the socks off if you want.

    Motorguide or Minn Kota

    Are these the same thrust motors? Big difference in props between brands.

    Motorguide or Minn Kota

    Most reliable option is a push pole. on the rare occasion I use it i have a minnkota Fortrex tiller, it’s been reliable And anytime I needed a part it was easily available.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Decided to recore a section of my front hatch as I correctly suspected water intrusion from the past 20+ years. now fingers crossed as I am back on the water tomorrow morning before sunrise... in fast cure epoxy resin we trust!

    Bourbon Smell In F150-HOw TO Remove

    Scent killer gold, find it in the hunting aisle. not joking, I use this around my house more than I do in the woods. smelly shoes, pet stains, kid stains, even spilled GULP juice, it gets them all and doesn’t leave an offensive cover scent.

    Spinning Reels

    I use Daiwa BGs in 2500-4000 about daily, they hold up great and I admittedly am bad on reel maintenance beyond rinsing them off. I think this set is going on 2 years now. I don’t think there is a better reel in the $80-100 range and possibly not a better value for the money out there

    October Fishing

    October has been a great month to get on the water with fish available any way you want to catch them. Bait has been plentiful, easiest way is to net some on the lower tides. Look for mullet schools traveling along the bank or throw a net at creek drains on the last bit of the outgoing for shrimp. In summary, bait flushing from the creeks (mainly shrimp) is driving everything. Trout - Work along shell banks or oyster lined banks with moving current as they are stacked up looking for a free shrimp meal to come by. Make sure to focus casts on any current breaks or swirls. Popping corks with an artificial or live shrimp remain a good option as well as a jig head and paddle tail. Redfish- The fish are fired up eating all they can. On lower tides they can be seen in small schools cruising the main river shoreline looking for small shrimp. Look for a push of nervous water moving against the current right up next to the bank on low tides on oyster lined shorelines. Additionally, creeks have been an excellent and reliable place to catch fish. Look for any lay downs on the outside deeper bends or under docks that hold water under them at low tide, throw in a bait on a Carolina rig and hold on. If you prefer to throw artificials its hard to beat a gulp shrimp on a jig head either drug or hopped on the bottom. Fishing should only get better as the bait thins out and the fish stay hungry until we notice a larger drop in water temp. I rarely get time to get the phone out for tailing pictures but this one was putting on a show right next to the boat, you can see the ripples of just how close the fish was, barely needed any more than leader out of the rod.
