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!

Day 2 withh the Bells

No used just by me...read full article

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

Day 3 – Blowing out of SW at 6:30 and no let up all morning. Don’t stop my Key West 23 Bay Reef! Out with a regular client Ronald Plecinski of “Jersey” and his brother in law Randy of Texas for some action and told them this is no doubt the worst conditions we could fish here. And we still had a limit of trout and one real nice slot drum along with several shorties. Live bait and anchor day....read full article

Second Day in Row
Day 2 and damn HOT. Got to me a bit today. I had Charles Stoup of Pennsylvania out today to learn some about our fisheries. He is currently a member of Fairfield Fishing Club, a group I really enjoy working with. I took him on the down river tour hitting the sound and stuff. We fished DOA Deadly Combos and new 2 ¾ shrimp (in my Shop Soon) and live bait. All caught fish. Small trout with a...read full article

Pulled a rabbit out today! Found trout, drum, flounder, rock, and black drum! Major Grand Slam. Not all big but lot better than what has been the usual. Robert Maner and his 2 sons Grant and Sam from Chattanooga Tenn. did a great job today learning how to catch our fish. Came home with a meal for them and me and a great memory to carry on. Only wish they didn’t have to see the crappy water...read full article
