“Today more than ever there is no excuse to be held back from doing anything. Anybody with a smartphone can make a name for themself doing anything. The proof is in the pudding, I was nothing 5 years ago in terms of social media, I didn’t even have an instagram.”

Podcast Synopsis

Today we have a gentleman who has decided that he wants to follow his passion, which is telling stories. His forte is telling stories that really captivates people’s attention. He was an early adopter of telling stories digitally and he started Outdoors360. I had a lot of questions for Rob and how he built such an incredible following on social media and how he tells his stories in such an interesting way.

Rob Chapman IV founded Outdoors360, he is an IGFA world record holder, marine artist, outdoor columnist and a tournament winning angler. He is a local to Florida and has spent all of his life in love with the outdoors. According to his website Rob is a ”social media, marketing, and branding junkie, cardio-hating, junk food loving, beard modeling goofball who’s passion is his family and the outdoors.”

It was awesome to hear Rob’s story, and I was very inspired by his passion and I think you will be too. Check out this podcast and check out some of Rob’s social media accounts.

One of my biggest questions was how to decipher what workouts and diets are worth it and which ones are good and which ones are bad. I have found that certain diets/workouts will be highly advocated for and a year later be condemned. BioLayne walks me through current statistics and his way of dieting and working out.

5 Things To Be Successful

It’s not the biggest or the most - success as a fishing guide is not that you catch the biggest or the most fish. The most important thing you can do is showing your customers a good time. Give them a great experience, this means that they will return to you. That is then how you have a successful business. Have happy customers.

Podcast Synopsis

I am creating so much content right now that it is hard to tell everyone where everything is and how to access it. So here I am going to share in a Quick Update, where you can find all the new things that are going to happen this week.

STUDIO

First - I built a new Podcast studio (image as Thumbnail of this podcast and this article). Its got some sound proofed walls, artwork on the walls and table. Its not much but its a cool place for me to do podcasts here in my office.

MIAMI BOAT SHOW

Next is the Miami Boat Show, which is happening around Valentine’s Day Weekend. I have not been at the Boat Show for a couple years because there was always the wrestling state tournament during that same weekend. But I needed to be there to support my boys. However, this year I will be there with Rich and we will be in the Yellowfin, Mercury and Lowrance booths. You can run into us there and meet us. Yellowfin is our home base and would love to meet you there. I will also be holding workouts in the mornings (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) at our hotel and please join. Watch my social media @tom_rowland for where I will be.

WAYPOINT OUTOOR COLLECTIVE

I have learned so much with the podcast and really enjoyed everything I have gotten to do. I actually was invited to join a Podcast Collective recently. Waypoint TV moved into the podcast network and they have a whole podcast featuring some really cool outdoor, hunting and fishing podcasts. Two of them I have actually had on my podcast (FishStrong Joe Simmonds & Will Taylor) and many others that you should check out, you can subscribe straight to the Waypoint Collective Podcast and listen to all of these podcasts released weekly.

2019 SHOWS

I have been getting a lot of questions about where you can watch the Saltwater Experience 2019 season. We have been editing them and they are some of our best episodes yet. We have been filming at Hawks Cay Resort, we had Matt Hughes 9x UFC Champion come fish with us and some other amazing guests. If you check out Waypoint TV you can watch all of our available episodes there for free. On Networks we are up on

  1. Sun Sports

  2. NBC Sports

  3. Discovery Channel

SOCIAL MEDIA

I have a full time team helping go through our old content - we have loads of content that we do to put up a 22 minute show, and in that we have lots of stuff that we haven’t done anything with. So we are going through old content and putting up some awesome stuff on social media. Go check out Saltwater Experience or Tom Rowland on social media.

PODCASTS

I did 2 podcasts with Captains for Clean Water and learned a ton about what is going on with the Everglades. I highly recommend you check those out. I got one featuring Bouncer Smith, one with Layne Norton, Rob Chapman, Miles Burghoff, and Jessica “Dixie” Mills.

Now with the Miami Boat Show I am able to get some time with people that I would not normally be able to be near. But I have 10 podcasts lined up and I am really excited about the guests that will be coming up. So many of the guests have come from you sending emails to podcast@saltwaterexperience.com so please keep them up.

See you on the water,

Russell Kleppinger - 814 Tarpon In One Year

Russel Kleppinger is a professional fishing guide who works in the Miami Area as well as the Bahia Honda area and Florida Keys.  He moves with the tarpon and may catch more tarpon in a single year than any other person on the planet.  Last year Russel landed 814 tarpon.  He posted a picture of 3 tarpon at once which got him to the 814 number last year and it really made me curious.

How To Extend Your Guiding Career

“Many guides have overuse injuries in their shoulders or back. If you can exercise those muscles and joints when you are not on the water it will help prevent those injuries".”

Podcast Synopsis

It may sound silly but the recipe for extending your guiding career 10 more years is simply taking care of yourself. Taking care of yourself means that when you are out on the water you are staying properly hydrated. I used to take a gallon of water on the boat with me and I would not get off the boat until I finished the gallon. Hydration is key because it is something that will take its toll after several days of guiding.

Getting proper exercise outside of guiding - many guides have overuse injuries in their shoulders or back. If you can exercise those muscles and joints when you are not on the water it will help prevent those injuries. For example, if all you’re doing is constantly pulling (pulling a boat), and if that is the only exercise you are giving your shoulder then you will get an injury, but if you exercise by pulling up or push-ups to exercise your shoulder in other forms.

But the most important thing you can do for a career spent outside is protect your skin. Especially if you work in the Florida Keys or any tropical environment. The danger is that guides who work in tropical areas become more used to the sun and can deal with it better and causes them to be less cautious and that is where the damage really comes in.

Luckily there have been some huge advancements in the clothing that is available for anglers - they are lighter, dry faster and many include sun protection up to spf 80 or even more. Cotton in my experience is about spf 8 - so the sun will certainly go through that.

I prefer to cover up instead of using chemical sunscreens. I don’t like the way it gets in my eyes or my mouth, and I don’t like having to remember to re-apply. What happens a lot with guides is you will get out there in the dark and the fishing is really good and the next thing you know it’s 11 and you’ve forgotten to apply sunscreen. That’s a lot of sun you’ve just been exposed to. So I like to cover up, specifically using the Buff Gear face protection technology. This has solved a problem that we used to use bandanas for that would leave a lot of exposed parts on your neck. The Buff covers all of it. There are few things that I will turn back around for if I forgot it on the dock, the Buff is one of those things.

So there you have it, take care of yourself, get exercise, protect yourself from the sun and get exercise.

The Future Of The Everglades

The Future Of The Everglades

Chris Wittman from Captains for Clean Water, Benny Blanco, TV Show Host and Everglades Fishing Guide and Steve Davis, Ecologist with the Everglades Foundation sit down to discuss the current water situation in the State of Florida.  Recently Florida elected a new Governor and in his first 48 hours he asked for the resignation from the Water Board and signed an Executive Order called “Achieving More Now For Floridas Environment”.  We discuss what this means for the State of Florida and what needs to happen to effect real change.

How To Create A Fishing Buddy

How To Create A Fishing Buddy

The first thing you need to keep in mind when you’re out fishing with your kids is that it’s their day, and not yours. Their fishing trip should consist of the things they want to do, even if that isn’t fishing. Think of this as a learning opportunity to expand their knowledge on marine life and what the ocean has to offer. This can include going to the sandbar, looking for critters under rocks, etc.
