Time is Now for Seasonal Sails in South Florida

  Time is Now for Seasonal Sails in South Florida By Craig Lamb Black Friday signals the official beginning of the holiday sale season. About that same time in late November another great deal begins evolving in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. As shoppers rush to grab great deals after Thanksgiving, the winter sailfish season is warming up on the east coast of Florida. Colder weather in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic bring the sails south. The colder it gets, the better the fishing. Long after the sales are over and the Christmas trees … [Read More...]

No ‘Off Season’ for Brandon Palaniuk

  No ‘Off Season’ for Brandon Palaniuk By Craig Lamb   Professional bass fishermen relish the "off-season" that follows a non-stop grind of tournament travel from January through September. The boat stays in the garage, and the fishing tackle is stowed. Out comes the hunting gear with days spent relaxing in the great outdoors. Normally, that is the plan for Brandon Palaniuk of Hayden, Idaho. He is an avid archery hunter and enjoys stalking elk in the western states. This year is different. There is no “off season”, but you … [Read More...]

Shallow Water Anchor Systems for Better Inshore Fishing

  Shallow Water Anchor Systems for Better Inshore Fishing By Craig Lamb Back in the day, staying put on a productive inshore spot meant quietly slipping an anchor overboard to secure the boat. Or impaling into the bottom a push pole tied with a line to the boat. Either way, a clanging anchor chain against the hull, or the crunching noise of the push pole into a shell bottom could send the fish scattering. Now there is a nearly foolproof solution. Shallow water anchor systems make the jog easy with the touch of a finger to a key fob worn … [Read More...]

Time is Now for Trophy Marlin

  Time is Now for Trophy Marlin By Craig Lamb A Hemingwayesque scene probably comes to mind if you are asked to envision taking a seat in the fighting chair and getting strapped in for the fight of a lifetime with an acrobatic marlin. What else comes to mind is savoring the fight after it ends with a tall, cool refreshment at the bar of a seaside fishing resort in the Caribbean. While that is a dream trip, the time, money and travel time required to reach such a destination can get expensive. If you are wanting to check off a … [Read More...]

Boat Maintenance Basics

  Boat Maintenance Basics   When most people think about owning a boat, they focus on the sunshine and pleasant days spent in quiet coves, catching that one great fish or the times spent with family tubing and waterskiing. What they don’t think about is the time spent on the bilge cleaning, oil changes, winterizing and storage. Boat maintenance can be a daunting task, but it is a necessary part of boat ownership and can actually be easy if anticipated and planned for correctly. With all of the different components to think about – from … [Read More...]

The Regular Season Finale of the NFL Held Surprises

  The Regular Season Finale of the NFL Held Surprises by Amy Lignor   There were few games left to play in the regular season that held massive power. The Minnesota Vikings versus the Green Bay Packers for the division title was one. The other came from the snow-filled skies of Buffalo where the Jets had a chance to see the post-season after a very long time of being shut out. Most other games were played to be granted a bye or, … [Read More...]

MITCHELL 300: The Next Generation
