Blurred, Beaten, & Smiling

Miserable, hot, fatigued, blurred, excited, and blessed are words that could be combined to sum up my week of on the water. I have been fortunate enough to enjoy nearly a week off from work due to a birthday and a long weekend due to the 4th of July. The downside to the week was once again the weather was going Continue Reading

Finding Reds and Fishing with Friends….

My last couple of outings have taken me to the Eastern Shore and to Rudee inlet. The first trip was to the Eastern Shore. I got to the ramp early and was soon joined by quite a group of fisherman; Rob Choi, William Ragulsky, Alex Britland, Tommy DeWitt, Luther and Tyler Ciphers. I was lucky enough to hook up with the Continue Reading

Wind, Nudity, and a Citation

I’m pretty sure that most mid-Atlantic anglers would agree that the nonstop wind has been anything but welcomed! 15+ knot winds have kept many fishermen off the water instead of seeking out the newly arriving summer species. The reports of cobia, flounder, sheepshead, and spadefish among others have anglers glued to the internet and Smartphone weather apps while crossing their Continue Reading

5th Annual YakAttack Tournament

The 5th Annual YakAttack Kayak Fishing Tournament could not have come at a better time. Coming up short with the ongoing mission of connecting with the huge bull reds of the Eastern Shore has left me in, well…a slump. Consistently coming home with the score of “Richie 0 – Bull Reds 6” has been playing with my head like something fierce! I found myself Continue Reading

Logging Time and Paying Dues

It’s been said by the Virginia bull red veterans that you have to put in the time and pay your dues to the Eastern Shore. At first you wonder what they mean by that. Put in the time??? I would say I fish a lot… Pay your dues??? Is there some club treasurer that I need to find? Only when you take on the daunting task of Continue Reading

Tardy to the Drum Party

I was actually caught off guard.  After finding the right time to ask theboss lady if I could go for big reds this weekend, she looked at me with a sharp glare… “It’s not that I don’t want you to go.  I’m just so tired of you coming home and whining like a baby about getting skunked again and again.”  Cringing from the salt that Continue Reading

Shutter Happy

  That fickle temptress, Lady Luck refused to play any role in the last several attempts to achieve my recent objective.  Big red drum have been caught by several kayakers this spring, making my failed endeavors that much more exasperating. However, some of those unsuccessful fishing days did turn out to be great “nature days”.  Putting my angling frustrations aside, Continue Reading

Hoping and Dreaming

Virginia’s Eastern Shore is truly something special. Not only is it one of the most beautiful places in the mid-Atlantic, it’s the spring time location for an opportunity to tangle with huge red drum…The chance for a fish of a lifetime! The weather over the last couple of weeks provided high winds and rain with little chance to catch a Continue Reading
