One of the best things about the job that we get to do is knowing that no two days will be the same. At the same time, that is the one thing that can make this job tough! The bite changes, the clients change, and the weather changes. We have to constantly remain fluid and be willing to adapt to …

After the winter transition the inshore bite has picked-up and the fish have stabilized in a more consistent pattern. Trout are moving into the shallow waters around rips, jetties, oyster beds and grass points.

Lately I’ve had several people ask me if I have stopped guiding. Let’s get that answer out of the way right off the bat. No. I’m still guiding, will continue to guide, and likely will stop guiding when I stop breathing. There is a story behind why some folks might think that I walked away from the business. For years …
