Shoulder Season

Well its officially the season you have to work harder to catch fish.  Shorter days and colder weather changes the way fish eat and what they eat.  The Jackson River near Covington, Va has fished well this Fall but this week water temperatures have dropped below 50 degrees.  When the water temp gets near 45 [...]

Return from the Jungle

It's been seven days now since my return from my third trip to Brazil.  It was another fantastic trip with Nomadic Waters.  My past two trips we fished the Utama region and to see something new we went to the Rio Negro river this year.  The Rio is a intimidating river, largest tributary to the [...]

Heat Wave

Wowza its been hot.  Thankfully we have temps the rest of the week in the 80"s not the 90's.  The heat didn't effect the fishing to bad.  By this past weekend the water temps on the James River had reached 87 degrees which put the fish down deep.  Today its 70 degrees and raining so [...]

Back to Bass

Fresh off the plane from a week in Florida with my family on vacation.  It was sunny and it was hot but a great time was had.  I was able to sneak out a day to tarpon fish with Lost Coast Anglers out of the Tampa area.  Awesome experience watching the tarpon slide just off [...]

Striper Tug

I have been guiding striped bass since my last blog post.  I finished up the freshwater striped bass run on the Staunton River at Brookneal, VA on May 4th.  The freshwater run was frustrating this year, it seemed like you had to be in the right place at the right time to get any numbers [...]
