Specializing in Wade Fishing. 

 

I’VE LEARNED THROUGHOUT THE YEARS THAT I NEEDED TO HAVE AN OUTLET TO RELIVE SOME STRESS.  

WADE FISHING HAS BEEN THAT FOR ME.

I GREW UP FRESHWATER FISHING UP NORTH BUT I QUICKLY GREW TO LOVE THE SALTY WATERS.  I REMEMBER THE FIRST FEW TIMES THAT I WENT OUT FISHING, WE THREW LIVE SHRIMP UNDER POPPING CORKS AND FREE LINED CROAKERS.  IT WAS A GREAT WAY TO GET THE ADDICTION IN YOUR BLOOD.

A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE INTRODUCED ME TO WADE FISHING WITH ARTIFICIAL LURES AND FOREVER CHANGED MY MINDSET ON HUNTING DOWN THE FISH I LOVE.  THERE’S NOTHING LIKE CASTING OVER A GRASS FLAT WORKING A TOPWATER AND SEEING THE STRIKE HAPPEN. IT’S ADDICTING TO SAY THE LEAST, BUT ITS MORE THAN THAT.  BRINGING THAT BIG GIRL RIGHT UP TO YOU AND GRABBING HER BARE HANDED IS SOMETHING THAT WILL NEVER GET OLD TO ME.  WATCHING THE SUNRISE AND SUNSET WHILE TRICKING FISH TO TAKE THIS PIECE OF PLASTIC.  WATCHING A STORM ROLL IN.  UNDERSTANDING WHAT THE STRUCTURE IS AND WHY THE FISH ARE HOLDING THERE.  THE FRIENDSHIPS MADE ON THE WATER.  THE LAUGHTER THAT HAPPENS WHILE CATCHING.  THE BAD JOKES AND TALL TALES TOLD WHILE WADING A COUPLE OF MILES OF SHORELINE.  THE SWEET SMELL OF SLICKS.  THE TIMES YOU WIN AND THE TIMES YOU LOOSE.  BUT REALLY, JUST BEING OUTSIDE ENJOYING GOD’S CREATION.

FOR YOU IT MIGHT BE DIFFERENT, BUT I WOULD GUESS THAT WE WILL AGREE ON MANY OF THE THINGS MENTIONED ABOVE.

I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THE HONOR TO SHOW YOU OUR GREAT BAY COMPLEX AND TO POSSIBLY TEACH YOU SOMETHING THAT YOU’VE NEVER DONE BEFORE OR HELP SHARPEN YOUR SKILLS TO MAKE YOU A BETTER ANGLER.
