A Long Time Coming

The Virginia Marine Resources Commission awards Saltwater Expert Angler status to those who catch 6 trophy (citations) of different species in one year. Given the time restraint, it’s a task that’s considered quite difficult even for power boaters, but I wanted to prove that I can play that game strictly in my kayak and win. No motherships, no getting towed, Continue Reading

Hues and Saturation

I was on the water from sun up to sun down, hoping every moment in between that my quest for VA Saltwater Expert Angler status would come to an end with one last specie citation.  King Neptune graced me with a myriad of other species, but my trophy tautog still remains at large.

Slump Busting Convict

“Scoping the rocks”  Photo credit: Joe Underwood The last month and a half have been more than a little frustrating as trip after trip ended in disappointment.  Near trophy sized cobia and massive black drum came oh so close, but alas, they snubbed their noses at my offerings.  Small triggerfish around the 1st island and lunch break bassin’ are cool Continue Reading

The Beat of a Different Kind of Drum!

Over the past few weeks I’ve gotten a few chances to head out to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel for that ever elusive sheepshead. For whatever reason, I just can’t seem to land one of these fish. I can get a few bites, but pilings and bad hooksets seem to get the best of me. I had gotten word from Rob Choi that Continue Reading


If you’re a salt water angler in the mid-Atlantic region, you’ve heard about the mystique of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel “CBBT”. For the kayak angler, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Guys like Kayak Kevin and Rob Choi have made this place famous with their catches of trophy sheepshead, taugtog, bull reds, black drum, etc. So needless to say, its Continue Reading


  Monster Red So I was sitting there in my office, being productive, getting my work done, feeling good after the recent tournament, when I decide to give Kayak Kevin a call to wish him a happy birthday.  When he picked up I could tell he was excited about something.  It turns out he had a 46″ red drum in Continue Reading

… Getting Slammed

I found this report after what I am about to tell you. My Grand Slam day turned into an unnerving situation by getting slammed.  That moment when I noticed the guys looking up at the sky, the wind jumped and hit us all in the face.  And not a second later heavy rain started pelting everyone, except those of us Continue Reading

CBBT, VA Report Grand Slam

I got lucky.  I was expecting to have to work with my dad at his shop while my mom got in on some quality time with her granddaughter.  But my dad got it covered so he told me to just go fishing.  Bingo.  Bango.  Weather looked good and the tides were alright so I launched at one of my favorite Continue Reading
