FOXTROT. Do You Copy, Mon?

OSCAR MOTEL GULF we just had the best trip to the Bahamas! Last week was spring break so Tom, Sophie and I traveled to Exuma along with my parents. It was a week filled with fishing, food, friends and family – basically this post is brought to you by the letter “F”. F IS FOR [...]

Whale Tale

Over Memorial Day weekend in Montana I had the chance to fish the Big Hole with my dad for a day. We spent most of the float discussing art history in preparation for our big family trip to Italia. Because he is more scholarly than I, he has done infinitely more homework. So I felt [...]

Slack Tide

In case I haven’t bumped into you recently let me go ahead and tell you what I’ve been telling everyone I encounter lately, “Did you know that I caught my first tarpon? Want to see a picture of my first tarpon? Yes, I actually did catch my first tarpon.” You see, it’s been so long [...]

Unedited

Some people I respect have counseled me not to write this post. Their advice is sound, so I’ve kept my mouth shut as long as possible. I’ve edited myself despite my on-going frustration. Of course I know they’re right, it’s never worth it to burn bridges. But last night it occurred to me, there actually [...]

And There Were Bonefish Too

Needless to say I am completely obsessed with the horrible murder that happened right in San Pedro when we were in Belize last weekend. And the bizarro actions of internet mogul John McAfee (computer anti-virus pioneer, yes that McAfee) who is wanted for questioning as a person of interest but is now on the run [...]

There’s really no graceful way to ease into this announcement so I will just shout it out: I CAUGHT MY FIRST TARPON! Like all the way caught for real. To the net. You may have heard some screaming and commotion from the general direction of the Caribbean the other day? Well that was me on [...]

Tastes Like Chicken

I don’t know what it says about me that I gravitate toward places that have chicken pooping competitions. Tomorrow the Professor and I head down to Belize for a little romance & little bonefishing. (For you non-fisher types those are separate activities. Geez! Pervs.) And I imagine we’ll have to spend Wednesday night at the [...]

Meanwhile, A Few Parishes Away…

Nothing screams “Gone Fishing in South Louisiana!” quite like a Moonpie Hat and camouflage. Not to mention a big ole redfish in your hands. And you make it all look good, baby! Hubba hubba. While I was gallivanting around New Orleans on my girls trip, the Professor and my dad were about an hour or [...]

Mississippi Redfish Blues

DSC_0457

Muddy waters. Just like our last trip over the Mississippi marsh in September, yesterday we found the water to be dingy and off color. While we did find one area with some clarity, overall the water was murky making it hard to sight fish for reds. We saw plenty of crabs, stingray, mullet and bait [...]

High Tech in the Low Country

If you read my previous post you know we covered a lot of ground in Charleston last weekend. Unfortunately the only stone we left unturned was redfishing. It was hard to look out across those beautiful marshes and not have the time (or gear) to get out there and sneak up on some tailing reds… [...]
