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

CBBT Tog

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

Easter Sunday Bull Ridin'

We waited anxiously.  More than a few phone calls exchanged theories on moon cycles, water temps, past seasons, weather windows, family commitments and of course the unforgiving work schedule.  By the time I got my stars lined up, Kayak Kevin and Jay Brooks had already clocked in a couple days earlier in the week and both had a notch on Continue Reading

TOGZILLA vs. THE BASTARDLY BUCK

MONSTER RED

  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

Double Tourney Saturday

A while back, I was asked to join the TKAA team for the Catching for Kids 20th Annual Anglers Club Challenge Tournament.  Of course, I was happy to oblige not only because I love to fish, but the money raised goes to a great cause.  Click the link for more info about Catching for Kids. The TKAA team divided up Continue Reading

Fall patterns starting in Tidewater

Saltwater fishing in the Tidewater area of Virginia is starting to take on its usual fall patterns. Great reports of speckle trout fishing are coming from all the major inlets in the Hampton Roads area. With the shorter day light and slowly cooling water temps its time for all the inshore species to start raising their fat content for the winter Continue Reading
