Back In Action

Back In Action

After a long win­ter of repairs and replace­ment parts, the Gravy is back in the water and rid­ing high.  In fact, she can now reach a top speed of 43 mph, a pin­na­cle that she he hasn’t reached in many years. As for fish­ing, that’s the goal.  Barn­sta­ble...
Pretty Fly Taking a Ride

Pretty Fly Taking a Ride

  This fly was real­ly just along for the ride as today was an atyp­i­cal live-bait day orches­trat­ed by my friend Bran­don. Nev­er­the­less, today’s first super hot day felt like a mid-July day with the stripers down deep on the bot­tom.  No sur­face...

The Trials of Boat Ownership…

It’s ear­ly morn­ing, the mari­na is qui­et, the boat is cov­ered in dew and the clients are on their way.  The rit­u­al of prep­ping the boat for a day of fish­ing begins.  The clients step on board.  The key is turned and the engine starts, every...

Fisherman are optimists…

…oth­er­wise, we would nev­er go fish­ing again after a, shall we say, less lucra­tive day of fish­ing. Yes­ter­day was the trip of “min­is’.  What­ev­er year-class these fish are, they are abun­dant this year. Nev­er­the­less, they aren’t real­ly “the...
