All I Want for Christmas

Posted by on 12-12-12 in Blog | 0 comments

I know I’ve been a bit lax on my posting lately.  Here’s our latest rundown of what’s going on. Fishing has been spotty, very hit and miss lately.  Some days are great, some days are painfully slow.  Winter time brings sight fishing for big trout and reds on the flats, and, my favorite, hunting the rivers for big snook. I’m doing something new tomorrow . . . mullet fishing, with a rod and reel.  I’m going with some guys who have done it for a long time, and my mouth is already watering thinking about smoked...

The Flu, and what’s coming

Posted by on 11-11-12 in Blog | 0 comments

You may have noticed a dearth of posts from me lately.  This has been for a number of reasons: a hellacious couple of weeks fishing – bad weather, tough tides, red tide, high wind, and some slow bites.  There’s nothing worse than having a charter, sitting watching the snook or redfish turn their nose up at every offering presented to them all day. a weekend getaway to Cedar Key with the Mrs.’s (which didn’t happen because of) I came down with the flu.  The real, fever running cold and achy headache inducing flu. ...

Late October Update

Posted by on 10-10-12 in Blog | 0 comments

Well, we’ve been a little inconsistent with our posting lately, but we’ve had lots going on.  Here are the quick hits: Lots of wind lately.  Too much, in fact.  We’ve been off the water for a few days thanks to all of Sandy’s contributions to our forecast.  We’ll be back at it again tomorrow, though. And it’s officially fall in Florida.  It’s just about bordering on winter with this crazy weather.  Thinking that the big trout will heat up as the temps continue to fall. The wind and cold happened...

Safety Dance

Posted by on 10-10-12 in Blog | 0 comments

Safety is not sexy. It is, however, paramount to anything else on the water, be it catching fish, sight-seeing, or having fun.  All of those things are important, but we take nothing as important as the safety of our guests. This post outlines a few of the items you need to have on your vessel, or that we have on ours.  Make sure to check your local regulations to ensure your boat is compliant. Horn – $15 – walmart.com – I think the regs basically require you to have a device capable of producing a warning blast –...

Giveaway: Cuts Like a Knife

Posted by on 10-10-12 in Blog | 5 comments

It’s Giveaway Day again here at the GC. This week, we’re giving away one of our favorite knives – the Kershaw Ken Onion Leek, in the matte black finish. One hand open, sharp, slim, sleek and stainless steel – everything about this knife screams sexy*.  This is NOT your dad’s swiss army knife*. *the knife doesn’t actually talk.  That’s just an expression. *which was my first knife – it weighed about 3 lbs.* and the blade was sharper on the dull side than the sharp side, and the scissors were...

Fishing Report – 10/5/12

Posted by on 10-10-12 in Blog | 0 comments

The only way to describe fishing in Southwest Florida the past month is HOT. Redfish, snook, trout, jacks, flounder, tarpon, sharks, everything seems to be in fall transition mode, which means they are all looking to eat. Almost everyone we’ve fished with has been able to achieve an inshore slam, meaning they’ve caught a trout, redfish, and snook in the same trip. The reds are loosely schooled up right now, and they are littering the flats and potholes, anywhere from just below the slot limit (18″) to well over the top...
