Blast off! 
From hook-up to release, you really can’t beat the energy schoolies carry with them wherever they roam. This particular one baptized us on his way out!

Introducing folks to the joys of stripers on the fly is one of my favorite aspects of my time on the water. Once they’ve hooked their first, the obsession begins!

Decisions…Decisions…
The Great Bay plays host to a phenomenal array of baitfish and forage for our bass to choose from. If you’re armed with an equally diverse range of flies, success and plenty of hungry bass certainly await!

The beauty of this fish is self evident. What’s not are the hours of casting, gallons of fuel burned, flies lost, and skin baked by the sun.

If you find the birds, you’ll find the fish. The Great Bay came alive this week, and the bait, birds and bass were abundant. Glad to see summer is starting to hit its stride!

Which bass is best? 
We like them all, but a clouser-slurping sight casted bass in shallow water is high on the list.

Greasy calm: 

Oil was historically used to calm the seas around a ship in stormy weather to facilitate rescue or repairs. We don’t carry “storm oil” anymore but when things glass off naturally you’ll find me on the platform looking for fish.

Ever get the feeling you’re being watched? @1speedgo got this shot of us working a deep wall in the @contenderboatsofficial last season. Love getting texts with these little candids from around the bay!

Every so often I get asked by clients why I keep a rubber net on board, when you can usually easily lip a bass. Mainly, it allows me to keep the fish in the water as long as possible while removing hooks during the warmer summer months, helping to reduce post-release mortality rates.

It takes a lot of practice to master the no-look poling platform re-rig. You never know what you’ll miss if you take your eyes off the water. 📸: @jct133

Looking down the barrel of a bait fish vacuum cleaner. The bass are starting to show up, and I couldn’t be more excited!
