How To Chum For Bonefish

How To Chum For Bonefish

One of my favorite things is sight casting - it’s all I did when I was first guiding. I never learned how to chum, it was not something I did when I was just starting out. However, eventually with fishing there are days where you just can’t sight fish (rainy or cloudy days). If you are a professional fishing guide you get put in this situation a lot, of days when you wouldn’t normally go fishing but because people have booked the trip you have to go and make the most of it. Chumming for bonefish is excellent for this situation.

Florida Skiff Challenge - A Serious Endurance Event

Florida Skiff Challenge - A Serious Endurance Event

I sat down with Heath Daughtry of Yellowfin Yatchs, Alycia Downs of Captains For Cleanwater and Chase Daniel from Yellowfin Yatchs to talk about the Florida Skiff Challenge. This event is not joke - you get in a Skiff (18ft or less boat) with a 70 horse-power or less motor. You take that boat around Key West and end in Cabin Bluff, GA. This event is 1,600 miles and you go for 48 hours nonstop. You don’t sleep.

How To Fish From A Paddle Board

How To Fish From A Paddle Board

When you go down to the Florida Keys it is common to want to go into the Everglades. Sometimes when there is a cold front and the weather isn’t ideal it can be a fantastic option to go back up into the Everglades and explore the No-Motor-Zone. Over the years Rich and I have tried many different crafts for the area but none have compared to the paddle board. With the shallow waters and the dynamics of the area you are trying to fish, a paddle board is the perfect craft for the job.

“There are many knots that may work better, but his knot is the only one you need and will work for 99.9% of fishing situations.”

Podcast Synopsis

I’ve gotten so many questions about knots in my career that I eventually went and filmed over 40 videos about how to tie different knots. You can watch all of them if you click HERE. One of the most popular videos that I published was the Uni Knot, titled “The Only Knot You Need.”

The Uni Knot or Duncan Loop Knot is a great go-to for teaching anyone how to tie knots and using with people who have not fished very much or when teaching your kids. It is a great knot because it is so versatile and you can use it for almost all fishing situations.

Boat Ramp Etiquette

Boat Ramp Etiquette

Today I wanted to talk about boat ramp etiquette - things like how to back your boat in, how to get ready and how to avoid altercations or frustrating other people. The boat ramp is a place where everybody is pretty excited, you have professional fishing guides there who have their system down and can get their boat in and out pretty quickly.

That is exactly the way you want to do it whether you’re a professional fishing guide or a rank amateur. Here is a way for you to start your day at the boat ramp in the best way. So here are some bullet points from this How 2 Tuesday.

“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.
