Fishing Louisiana - Bull Redfish

Some call it the Mecca of Red Fishing, some anglers call it the Holy Grail of Fishing in general, others call it “Leeeesiana”, but I prefer to call it what it is: The Mississippi Marsh.

Chasin' the Sun Ep. 5 - Secluded Bounty

As Captain Travis Holeman and Captain Justin Leake spend more time together on the water, they have begun to form a mutual trust and respect for one-another. Before heading out for the day, Justin and Travis stop to catch pilchards using Justin’s method of chumming and throwing the net. Their plan for the day was to use tower on their Islamorada Boatworks bay boat to sight fish schools of redfish off the beach. Good sunlight is necessary to increase visibility when sight fishing so Justin and Travis decided to head out to an artificial reef to catch amberjacks in the morning while waiting for the sun to get higher.

Light tackle set ups are a favorite for Justin and Travis when targeting amberjacks. Throwing flies, plugs, and live bait did not yield much success for the two captains, and after landing a few fish they decided to move on to chasin' redfish. The beaches around Panama City Beach hold many different species of fish. Justin mentioned that on a recent trip he had even seen a school of permit in the area. Unsure of what they might come across, Travis and Justin rigged up both a permit and a redfish rod and hoped for the best. Fishing very close to Tyndall Air Force Base, Justin and Travis were able to enjoy an epic scene in the sky with F-22 Raptor Jets flying above them. Without much success finding redfish or permit like Justin hoped, they began to work their way back to the dock. As they began to ride back they spotted the large school of redfish that he had recently seen on a trip. In no time they were on the fish and both Travis and Justin landed several nice reds.

 

Fish Better. Fish Florida.

Finally, I Caught A Monster Redfish (VIDEO+PHOTOS)

It was one of those moments where all I could do was hold on and hope the fish didn’t spool me. Every 10 feet of line taken felt like 60 yards of line. Every 3 seconds felt like 10 minutes and every head shake my heart skipped a beat.

Fishing Tampa Bay w/ Captain Mike Goodwine of Blackneck Adventures

Tampa Bay is a thing of beauty. This time of year the water is crystal clear, and for February the weather seems to be warmer than normal which seems to have helped turn on the bite. The other week I was blessed to be able to go out fishing with Captain Mike Goodwine a well-known fishing guide out of Tampa Bay, FL. This is definitely something I have wanted to do for some time now, so I am extremely thankful for the time I had on the water.
