    The fishing starts at 5:40, incase you wanna fast forward. I went over to do some chainsaw work at a friends house yesterday. I brought my poles because I knew she had a pond. Turns out, it has baby tarpon in it. I am going to go back and bring a small fly rod and see if I can get some on...

    Hey everyone. So about a year ago I got a super good deal on a brand new nautilus silver king.... Didn’t take me long to realize it just can’t hold up to a 100lb fish. 15 drag turns into the fight, (hatch reels being a single turn drag) all you hear is grinding and scraping like worn out break...

    I'm going to San Antonio at the end of July, hoping to have a day or two to get away and fish. I'm open to suggestions from Port O'Connor to South Padre but would prefer to stick to the shortest drive possible, probably the Port Aransas area. I'll probably book a guide for one day but would...
