8/20 Quad Slam

Rocky and I picked up our guys today at 4:00am and headed SSW to a super secret honey hole Captain Lucas turned us on to.  Right off the bat we new we weren’t in Delacroix anymore due to the shark fins breaking the surface at the first spot we stopped at.  As the day progressed […]

8/18-8/19 Redfish Tells

Both days have been extremely hot with the heat index reaching 110+ but when it is this hot it means there is no wind.  Is the heat miserable? Yes. Is the fishing good enough to make you forget about the heat? Yes.  When there is no wind it allows you to spot a redfish’s tell or movement […]

8/17 Deja Vu

I had Riaz back on the boat for a second day of tremendous fly fishing action.  We decided to try our hand at catching reds on top-water.  I tied on a redfish popper and Riaz did the rest, laying down shot after shot with surgical precision.  As a guide it is always a treat to […]

8/16 Early Redfish Action

An early start was the key to success Tuesday morning as Riaz and I got on the water at daylight.  Living in San Francisco hasn’t afforded Riaz any opportunities at redfish on the fly so he was eager to get a shot at his first.  We didn’t have to wait long before we were hooked […]

8/13 Venice Day 2

Had the pleasure of fishing with the Kerr family this day.  With the low winds and mostly clear skies it was a very successful day. In the morning I took out the son James Albert and the mom Dawn.  Well immediately  we start catching fish.  Dawn gets her first red on the fly and James Albert has 8 […]

8/12 Afternoon

After dropping off the guys from the morning trip I got a quick bite to eat and got in touch with a friend of mine Capt Paul Swett for some afternoon action.  We arrived at dead low tide which in Venice is great. The water clears up and the fish become stacked up in schools […]

8/12 Venice, Louisiana aka Redfish Mecca

Capt Greg Moon and I had a great group of guys fishing with us this day.  Due to the poor water clarity on the east side we convinced the guys to take the ride down to Venice where the clarity has been good and the numbers of fish have been great.  Everyone caught fish, Moon’s […]

The Moon Sled

Capt Greg Moon and I had a pretty good time testing his new East Cape Fury . This boat is pretty incredible. I may just be saying that because Im also getting one in the next week or so  but the facts don’t lie.  The boat is setup perfectly with great storage and rigged out […]

8/6 Tailing Redfish

Hoping to get back on the fish Rocky and I saw two days ago I let Skip know early we were going to be taking a ride.  After the 45 min boat ride we pull up to the flat and immediately start seeing movement. As we pushed closer we started seeing tails, big tails. Taking it slow […]

7/28 – 7/30 FAUX PAS

                    I had a great time fishing the Faus Pas fishing Rodeo With Brock and his Mom Stacey. All three days we caught a ridiculous amount of fish. Brock is by far the best junior angler I have ever seen. Although we didn’t catch any good […]

7-24 Morning Madness

This Morning couldn’t of worked out better. No wind with good cloud cover made it easy to see fish moving and still kept it bearably hot.  Seemed like from the time we got out there to the time we got chased in by a storm (7am-11am), It was non stop action. If we weren’t fighting a fish […]

7-20 Warming Water

Another great morning with fish moving everywhere.  They were not tailing like the weekend but they were floating just under the surface and with the low winds it was easy to spot the little flickers of a tail following a bronze hump in the water.  We caught most our fish early and as the water warmed the bite […]

7-17 Skinny water Redfish

Had another great morning. The Nolans had no problem catching these fish in the shade. Tide – End of falling, beginning of rising   Water Temperature – 80-83   Wind – 0 – 10mph   Sun – Mostly overcast early with a few spots of sun then scattered thunderstorms forced us in around 11:45   […]

7-16 Butterball Redfish

Had a good day today with Jim Wagner and his son Henry.  We found a good school of fish early and they were actually eating!  After busting a school of fish Henry made quick work of getting on the board. Jim had to step it up with this 9.5lber. (slot fish) Tide – End of falling, […]

Summer Slam

Fishing has been real consistant with mornings being full of action and as the day goes on the fishing slowing down.  Yesterday Moon and I had a great day with little wind, plenty of fish and Moon’s incredible shrimp pattern fly.  We had no problem getting our red in the morning, but trying to get […]

Turks and Caicos

I had the pleasure of visiting the Turks and Caicos Islands. Although the fishing was tough with high winds and what seemed like the tail end of bonefish season, the trip was still amazing.  Caught the bonefish on a blind cast.    

Perfect Summer Morning

With the afternoon rains the day before, the morning started out nice and cool.  With calm winds and clear skies we knew it was going to be a perfect summer day.  Tough bite with the poppers but once we switched to a shrimp pattern it was game on.

Good Showing for Poor Weather

We started early yesterday hoping to get in a full day before the storms built up. Well we didn’t get a full day but we had a pretty exciting 2 hours.  It was an overcast morning which made it next to impossible to see the fish but due to the low winds we could spot […]

Morning Redfish Action

Moon and I hit the water early to try and get some action before the heat became unbearable.  Well lets just say we got what we were looking for. Sneak peak of summer footage

More Heat = Less Active Fish

Fished the usual areas yesterday. The wind shifted out to the north which is good if it can get some water out of the marsh.  Seems lately with these higher waters the schooled fish have broken up and spread out.  Although we still saw around 40-50 fish today the majority of those fish were extremely spooky. But […]
