Matt and Kyle are the type of people that everyone should have in their close circle of friends. They are the ones I train with, read books with, and give endless support and motivation to myself, and to each other. Each year, Matt and Kyle are avid goal setters for themselves, and their families. Matt describes that on New Year’s Eve, he and his family sit at the table together, and write down their goals for the year ahead. As a family, they talk about the resolutions they have for themselves, and for everyone else.
Start by navigating in your marina, or dock, in small, consistent circles. When you are first starting this step, make sure to bring your boat back to the dock before 2 pm., as there will be a glare forming when the sun starts to set. After about a week of continuing this technique. see if you are completely comfortable with doing small circles in the glare, and in the dark. Once you are familiarized with this step, expand your circle, and repeat the same process as before.

“ Every boat is a compromise; every boat is going to have it’s benefits and drawbacks.”
One of the most asked questions I have received is “what boat should I buy?”. The best boat for anyone is dependent on a variety of factors, as well as compromises.
The first thing that anyone who wants to own a boat needs to realize is that every boat is a compromise. To see which one may be the best for you, ask some questions. The first question you should consider is the type of fish you want to spend the most time fishing for. If you are interested in shallow water fish, like bonefish or permit, then a skiff or small bay boat may be good options to keep in mind. If you are planning on fishing solo, buy a boat that has a trolling motor. Then, think of other things that you may want to do in the boat, how many people you might like to take, are those people kids, dogs or what?
To determine the size of the boat you may want, consider how many people you want to take out on the boat. Think about the type of activities you would like to do other than fishing, if applicable. Other factors like live well storage, speed, rough water handling, fuel capacity and more become considerations.
Bay boats are a versatile style of boat which can sometimes be taken in deeper waters, but make sure the weather is nice before doing so. If fishing in deeper waters is your primary goal, a true offshore boat will be a better choice.
It is confusing…All of these considerations should be thought through before ever even worrying about which manufacturer you like. I hope to help you narrow down the style of boat may be a good choice for you before diving deeper into quality, ride, dryness and fit and finish.
See you on the water,
When finding a perfect balance of talking about public lands, I mention Jamie Howard’s film, Location X, as a prime example of filming a secret fishing spot without revealing the location. In my podcasts and television series, my goal is to encourage newcomers into outdoor sports, but in doing so, being respectful to the established hunters/anglers in keeping their favorite spots secret. There is a responsibility not only to the animals that inhabit these areas, but to the people that hunt and fish there as well.
In this How 2 Tuesday episode, I discuss managing expectations for fishing and hunting. As a guide, it is important to set the expectations to my client and letting them know the realistic outcomes for when they’re out on the water. Because there are so many factors that are out of your control, like the weather, it’s best to have little to no expectations.
Raised in Australia, Brandon created a gym for members to have a safe space for those with depression and anxiety. While the gym at first was a rising success, it was closed down due to financial reasons, and the doors closed soon after. As a young entrepreneur, Brandon wasn’t sure what he wanted to do with his life after his failing business and felt hopeless. Brandon started to have panic attacks, and attempted suicide but had a voice inside his head saying he needed to make an impact on the world first.
Hunter always knew he wanted to become a guide since he could remember. Not having a preference to the type of guiding, he enrolled himself in guiding school 36 hours away from home. During school, Hunter learned everything about horses to packing for trips. The second half of his training involved learning about finding coordinates and first aid/CPR training. Once he finished guide school, the class celebrated by camping out for two days and truly putting their skills to the test.
Elliot began his true fishing experience in Alaska at the age of 18 unloading fishing boats and going fishing in his spare time. Later on, Elliot moved to Nantucket as a boating guide, and not making enough money, he lived in his car for a few weeks. Three weeks into being in Nantucket, Elliot was fishing off the beach, and ended up catching a brown shark, pulling it by the tail up onto the beach. After a video of him catching, handling and releasing a shark on Nantucket went viral on social media and then to conventional TV, Elliot found himself on over 80 TV shows and other interviews.
