We have been on a continuing quest for the perfect family boat.
There is something deep in our angling soul that motivates us to try and reach water that we traditionally have not been able to reach.
There’s no denying that feeling that “tug” is what turns kids on to fishing.
South Carolina and now Florida have been especially newsworthy states over the last couple of weeks.
Many years ago, more than I care to admit, I drove to my favorite trout stream.
It’s the dead of winter, and for many of us trout fishers, that means spending more time in the warm indoors than making casts in the great outdoors.
Appliances such as the trolling motor, depth finder, and bilge pump receive most of the attention from anglers and boaters.
The weather has turned cold in many places throughout the country, but that doesn’t mean the fishing action has to slow down.
My kids are getting to the age where they are ready to learn how to skipper our boats.
Try as we might, we just can’t fish and boat all the time.
One hot summer’s day I putted around the harbor in my fiberglass skiff.
Short of a rod, reel, and lure or fly, I’d say the polarized glasses I wear are my most important gear consideration.
I believe in the lure I throw. And fully expect every cast to be a fish.
