2016 in Nut Shell
With 2016 in the past I look back at what we had. Fishing had its ups and downs but managed to get some good trips in. I did cancel a lot due to not good fishing and I don’t take some ones money just because. If I have doubts we won’t go. Can’t guarantee fish but sometimes it’s almost impossible. I gave clients the option. Bookings looking good starting out this year with one group trip...read full article

Start of Fall Fishing
Have had fair success with small trout and few legals, lot of pups and some decent flounder.
Rock season opens Oct 1 and they are eating good in stump fields.
Doing 5 hour $400 trips targeting top water and moving into some trout/mixed bag. Can do 3 anglers but 2 is better for you anglers.
Just a call away!

Well, a lot of folks have asked why I am not posting much of lately. The reason is Big Drum has started slow and not too much to report. There are a few fish cooperating but it has been tough. The first Full Moon spawn is this coming week so things should improve drasticly.
There has been some drum caught on both DOA and bait. Your preference is the only decisionfactor as they both work. I...read full article
