Cold Weather Fishing Can be hot!

Cold water slows the metabolism of a fish way down. They move slower and don’t travel long distances. What they like to do, is drop off into deeper water for warmth.

My family is still talking about the fishing trip.

Kudos to you! It has been a few weeks and still my family is still talking about the fishing trip we had with you. That to me is well worth any expense. We were looking for family memories and looks like we have a great one. The snappers were a hit back at the condo, […]

Wade always puts us on the fish!

I have fished with Capt. Wade for years and he always puts us on the fish. You know it’s been a good trip when everyone says, “My arms are too tired to fish anymore!” Dr. Jim Rivenbark, Clearwater, FL April 10, 2011
