By: L.C.A. Ahhhh, the Red Snapper. We could certainly get into a litany of “discussions” on this prized fish, but today we’ll focus on the good. Well, if you fish the GOM (Gulf of Mexico), that is. This year, our democracy worked in such a beautiful way…the type of way our snapper fishing forefathers always wanted it to. The federal government decided to let the Gulf states help in the decision-making process for our little red, feisty friends. Here’s the FYI on the snapper season in the GOM … [Read more...] about Red and Rare… The Elusive Snapper… Right?
Guest Post by ProStaffer Keith Krafft Musky are the most elusive fish I’ve ever targeted in my life; they truly are a fish of 10,000 casts.

This time of year, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts alike begin to head back out on to the water in search of some of our swimming friends, or just to have a good time. As for myself, I’m in the same boat (no pun intended), but I would be remiss if I didn’t play the parental role here and say, “have fun, but remember safety.” We often cringe when we see that Coast Guard boat coming around the corner, screaming on plane with blue lights flashing. But let’s remember, they’re people too, and they … [Read more...] about Be Nice to the Coast Guard, They’re Here to Keep us Safe!
