    In the podcast this week, I have the pleasure of interviewing my old friend and co-worker Bill Reed on stillwater trout fishing.  We get requests for stillwater podcasts regularly but honestly I’m not very good at stillwater  trout fishing and just don’t do it enough.  Bill gives us his 8 tips for stillwater fishing, and whether you are an expert at this discipline or just thinking about it, you’ll get many valuable tips.  Also on the Fly Box this week we ramble about night fishing, streamer fishing, how to organize your fly box, how to catch fall landlocked salmon, dry/dropper…

    In this week’s podcast we talk to Chris Strainer, owner of Crosscurrents Fly Shop in Craig, Montana.  Chris fills us in on how to beat both the heat and the crowds on one of our most popular trout rivers, the Missouri.  He has some great tips on this, as well as suggestions for fall fishing opportunities when the crowds are gone and the weather is cooler.  In the Fly Box we talk about mending with a dry fly, fishing emergers and wets upstream, prospecting with smaller flies, losing fish when they jump, protecting rubber legs on crab patterns, casting fatigue, big fish on light rods…and…

    Steve with a monster black grouper caught drift fishing on the Catch My Drift There’s a multitude of fish showing up on the Fort Lauderdale reefs.  First off, on our drift fishing trips, we’re catching a lot of mangrove and yellowtail snappers.  An occasional big grouper might be caught on one of our drift trips too.  Mainly, we’re bottom fishing on that trip, but if an angler prefers a top-water rig, you have the possibility of kingfish, bonitos, blackfin tunas and mahi-mahi.  All are possible catches this month fishing the water over the 100-120′ reef.

There are some monster fish biting off the Fort Lauderdale coast this week.  Sailfish and sharks have been active, lots of action on the reef and there are some pretty large fish biting around the shipwrecks.  That’s not all though.  Today we had a daytime swordfishing charter and ended up catching an estimated 500 pound swordfish, one of the biggest we’ve ever caught off our dock.  It was an incredibly exciting and equally exhausting catch.  Fishing trips like this…

  • The Strip Set – Not Just for Bonefish

    Kyle Shea
    22 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
    Earl strip set.. Photo: Kyle Shea. “Don’t trout set,” are words nearly every saltwater angler has heard at one time or another. That’s because when it comes to hard mouthed species like bonefish it’s crucial to set the hook by stripping the fly as opposed to raising the rod in typical ‘trout’ fashion. Raising the rod does a great job at burying a small fly into a soft mouth on light tippet, but not so great at pinning a large hook into a hard mouth. However, the strip set is not only useful in the salt, it can be extremely effective in freshwater…

It was quiet a century and a half ago on the night of October 16th, 1859 as less than two dozen men, led by the messianic abolitionist from Kansas, John Brown, crossed the Potomac and slipped into the town streets to initiate what Brown believed would be the end of slavery in America.

    We made a weekend out of it, and I can easily say this was the best weekend ever. I would like to consider myself a foodie.  Any time I travel anywhere, my first thought is where to eat.  I love to try new places and find those hidden gems that not many people have heard about. So today I wanted to share my favorite place in West Falmouth. This is a great stop on your next Falmouth visit!  If you're only skimming through this article, heres a quick recap of what I love: There's even an ice cream shop in the house too for after your meal.  Enough said.

  • Gearing Up To Kayak Fish The Cape

    The last time I splashed the kayak was back in June of this year. Back then I was fortunate to catch some beautiful fish, but most of all I enjoyed the quiet and simplicity of fishing from a kayak.As we move toward the end of the summer, I am looking forward to ditching the big boat and spending more time on the yak. In this post I'm going to share with you reasons why I'm so excited for kayak fishing, as well as some helpful tips for targeting big stripers from the kayak, as we approach late summer.

    If you know me at all, I'm not much of a fish person.  I squirm at the thought of touching a worm and really only would like to see a fish seasoned and grilled with a nice lemon wedge to garnish. This other side of fishing, I will admit, threw me for a loop.  The first time I went fishing with Ryan and wrestled in a 25-pound fish, I'm pretty sure that was my "in" in this relationship.  Not to mention when I posted the picture of me holding the fish, most of my friends (and parents) were convinced this was some sort of photoshop prank.  I remember refusing to touch the bait and of course…
  • I Never Liked Bluefish, Until I Tried This Simple Recipe

    Lauren Blacker
    17 Aug 2015 | 8:00 am
    Here's something to wrap your head around - bluefish that tastes delicious! I've never been a big fan of bluefish - their sharp teeth and oily, fishy and worst of all blue meat, make them less than desirable (at least for me). For a long time Ryan and I have tried to figure out a simple and delicious way to cook bluefish without using mayonnaise, which Ryan is not very fond of. This time around we have a winner, thanks to this simple recipe which MFCC member Eric Meyer shared this year in our forum. Thank you Eric! So, would you believe me if I told you the perfectly caramelized,…
  • 23 Miles of Surfcasting the Beaches of Outer Cape Cod

    At the end of the 2014 fishing season, I read the book Cape Cod by Henry David Thoreau. The text recaps Thoreau's visit to the Cape during the mid 1800's, including his walk along the dunes from Nauset Inlet to Provincetown.After reading the book I felt inspired to do the same, yet I would walk with a fishing pole in hand.​ This September, god willing, I am going to walk and fish the 23 mile stretch of sand from Nauset Inlet to Race Point, and share the experience with you here on My Fishing Cape Cod.  […]The post 23 Miles of Surfcasting the Beaches of Outer Cape Cod appeared…

    By Paul De Wet By the age of ten I must have read Neville Nuttall’s chapter entitled “My first trout”, in Life in the Country a hundred times, and I think I could quote bits of it verbatim.  When, aged ten, I finally did catch my first trout (in the upper Umzimkulu) my Mum persuaded me that I should write and tell Neville all about it, which I did.  I was so touched by his reply – I still am! I don’t remember if I told Neville about the details of the catch – I am sure I would have.  I had followed my Dad endlessly up and down rivers for years without catching…
  • Tying tips: Avoiding steps

    trutta
    16 Aug 2015 | 11:48 am
    When tying in materials, and this applies in particular to bulky materials, you need to handle steps in the diameter of the thread base. If you tie in a bunch of thick deer hair, and trim the butt ends in a straight line, you will probably have a wide diameter zone over the butt ends, dropping in a step to the smaller diameter zone where you have only thread around the shank. This is depicted in the top sketch : A sudden step like this can be managed:  You can leave it as a step, and wind one material on the “high ground” and another on the “low ground”, as depicted in the centre…

    It went something like this: We were near Mooi River.The  water had been booked, but we were somehow unsure of parking arrangements. While hovering around the entrance road the farmer drove past. Bruce is his name. He is from Mooi River. I know him well. We didn’t stop him or greet him, but let him pass like a stranger. Then we parked and walked to the dam in front of his house. Bruce doesn’t own a farm, let alone one with a house overlooking it. The lake was small and ugly, but the water was devilishly clear. This makes little sense, because it was mid-summer. The bottom was patches…

    We put our new boat into the salt water for the first time last weekend. We went to Clifton Springs and put in at the boat ramp there. The bay was very calm – probably too calm, in fact. We were targeting squid/calamari and hoping for some early season pink snapper. Southern calamari are a year round prospect in Port Phillip Bay and have become a very popular target amongst many fishermen. Calamari inhabit shallow weed beds and reef structure as well as piers that attract baitfish. The popularity of squid fishing has brought about an influx of prawn style imitation jigs in various…
  • Project Trident

    5 Aug 2015 | 4:06 am
    We have decided to upgrade our boat. We are sticking with Quintrex, but we are going from the Hornet to the Trident. Our Hornet was a centre-console 4 metre boat. The Trident is a 6 metre boat with a cabin, which will provide us with more protection and get us out into the ocean more. The Trident will be far more versatile and should provide us with lots more opportunities for fishing trips that will give us great video footage to post here! Akro also loves the cabin in the new boat! The post Project Trident appeared first on Big Daddy's Fishing Blog.
  • Cod v Mulloway

    BigDaddy
    11 Jul 2015 | 11:04 pm
    The Australian Murray Cod and the Mulloway have very different environments, but as apex predators, they also have a lot of similarities. These similarities can be utilised when targeting these species, so fishing for cod and mulloway can be approached similarly. Both species are large bodied, so any form of water movement will require energy and effort to simply maintain their position. Big fish do not get big by continually burning large amounts of their body’s protein stores, so any features or structure in the water that will deflect or redirect the water will attract big predators. If…
  • Macquarie Perch

    BigDaddy
    27 Jun 2015 | 7:41 pm
    Perch is a freshwater gamefish. The most common is the European Perch, or “Red Fin”. They are a medium sized fish which tend to school. So, when you find one Red Fin, if you keep fishing in the same spot, you will tend to find the rest of the school, and you can be on the bite for hours. Red Fin In Australia, we have plenty of introduced European Perch, but we also have some of our own beautiful native perch. The Golden Perch, or “Yellow Belly” is the more common. They tend to be much deeper-bodied and have a greater average size than the Red Fin here. I have found them to be quite…

    20 Jun 2015 | 8:37 pm
    The wild carp in Europe are considered vulnerable to extinction, but the ornamental varieties (koi fish) and where carp are an introduced species, they are thriving. They are considered edible by some cultures and in some areas, but I’ve never had a carp prepared that I could eat. The average size carp is 40-80cm long and weighs 2-14kg. But the largest recorded carp caught in UK weighed 45.59kg (wikipedia), but from photos on Google, there have been bigger! They prefer slow to standing water, and their diet is omnivorous (plants and meat). They tend not to eat other fish, but crustaceans,…
