Fresh to Salt

October is just about done and wow it was a busy one.  The Fall bite for smallmouth bass was very good the past two weeks.  High fish numbers brought to the net and some very healthy fat bellied specimens.  Game Changers and Tequeelys did the best on exciting the smallmouth.  One bass upchucked a 6 [...]

Blame It On The Rain

It has not been a normal August but what has been normal this year?  This August has been filled with thunderstorms almost daily and more flash flood warnings than I can count.  Normally one of busiest months of the year became one of my slowest with cancellations and rescheduling trips due to high and murky [...]

Hot Smallies

Whew dog its been a hot one this July.  Humidity some days reminded me of the Amazon.  Unfortunately I will not be going to Brazil this year.  All trips have been pushed to 2021.  I had a hosted trip scheduled this Fall as well for Belize but with so much uncertainty I have pushed that [...]

Hate To See Them Leave

I have returned home after a awesome two weeks of guiding two charters a day in Weldon, NC.  The first week of May the river was very high at 20,000 cfs.  Even with the high conditions the bite was great the whole week.  Lost more flies than I can caught having my anglers throwing up [...]

Another Wet One

Does anyone remember when we had normal weather?  The past five years seems to be storm after storm in the Spring.  Its really messing me up!  I'm always excited for April because the striped bass start making their way up river to spawn.  The problem is the rain is all or nothing it seems and [...]

Trouts and Stripes

Well its been business as usual for me except for less trips than normal in April.  I appreciate everyone that has kept me on the water during these hard times.  Fishing has been good with even better weather until the other day.  Thats right, we got the dreaded deluge Sunday and Monday.  I think around [...]
