• Captain's Log for the week of 4-21-16

    Luck is a funny thing. Google says luck is success or failure apparently brought on by chance rather than through one’s actions. Well as for me I believe in luck. I have always felt lucky to have been born in America, raised by two loving parents who taught me hard work, empathy, dedication, patriotism, integrity, faithfulness, conservation and a million other important values. And luck has been with me most of my life, so you might ask, what is your point?

    I don't know about you, but I have had all of the windy days I can stand. Once again, last week was so windy we could only fish a couple of days. I imagine we will want some of this wind in July and August when the dog days take your breath away.

  • The comeback of the chicken

    Chickens have been domesticated for thousands of years all over our planet. At one time, just about every farm and many city residences had chickens.

    Then starting in the 50's, small towns and cities wanted to have a more progressive image so they banned all livestock and mistakenly lumped chickens in with pigs, cattle, horses and sheep.

    The inshore fish picture now seems to be complete, as pretty much all of our expected species have arrived this past week. The warm southern breezes ushered in some very tasty pompano. Though they usually ignore most artificial lures my clients landed a few last week. And in the tug-of-war department they put on a very impressive contest. I also saw some of the first bait pods arrive, I believe they were silversides. I don't think it is coincidence that their arrival happens during the spotted seatrout spawn.

  • Vernal Equinox message: Donate your excess 

    One of the pluses of having a productive garden is that there is always extra produce, enough to share.  The reality is that the produce in your gardens will start to go down in quality due to hotter weather, bugs, and spacing of the plants.  You all have done a great job of caring for your beds, but in many cases, you will just not be able to eat all of that beautiful produce before it starts to go down in quality.

    What a beautiful time of the year! It is so exciting to see the farmers getting watermelon fields ready to plant, the red maple are showing off their spring colors by adding a striking crimson to the area forests, and the redbuds are blooming everywhere.

  • Good weather and good fishing make good times

  • Pirate 'n' fish galore

    Hello to all the Cedar Key followers and the visiting invasive Pirates.

    I hope everyone enjoys this li'l shot of cool air and lack of rain. It should be the nicest week of the fall to this point. And I imagine that most, as myself, welcome it.

  • Elite Redfish season comes to an end

    Happy pre-Labor Day Weekend.

    I'm hoping this weather holds for everyone's outdoor plans. I have taken this weekend off for the first time in 14 years. I will be spending the time on the rivers and springs but will kick the work week off on Monday.

    The Elite Redfish Challenge held its season ending events this past weekend. The final results in the Team of the Year was Team Eupro Jeremey Heimes and Travis Hancock with a 1.2l pound lead on Team B and S Trailers Danny Allen and Dwyane Harrington.
