Caught not Bought: Mexico

by Skinny Water Culture August 02, 2017

By Ryan Saul

I love hunting, I love killing fish and I love eating meat. What I love more, and am fortunate enough to be doing full time, is pastoring a small church in Tampa called Calvary Chapel West Tampa.

The Gift of Silver

by Skinny Water Culture July 26, 2017

By: Will Korte

A few months back, I had the opportunity to fish with captain Harrison Hodges of H20 Charters. I was also fortunate to be fishing with my dad and our family friend Larry Branch.

Larry is a really amazing guy. He’s ran the Boston Marathon six times, traveled to more countries than I can name, served in the Army, taught at Harvard, Boston University, Duke and USF. He received his doctoral degree from Loyola University. Larry is one of the most respected names in the field of public health and is held in high regard around the world for his work.

Last Minute Plans

by Skinny Water Culture July 12, 2017

By Adam Mailliez

Covered in hydraulic fluid from head to toe and frustrated for missing a perfect day on the water – that is how my Saturday started.
Not exactly the best start to the weekend, but it happens, just had to roll with it and before I knew it was time to get cleaned up and get ready for a gathering of friends at Jeff’s house. We get to let the kids play and enjoy some drinks while telling fishing stories well into the night. These gatherings don’t happen nearly enough but they are always a good time. We arrived, and I was still frustrated about my broken boat and my lack of time and ability to fix it, I thought that it meant no fishing Sunday either.

All Part of the Process

by Skinny Water Culture June 28, 2017

By Ryan Saul

 

This past week I got a phone call from a good buddy who needed a hand at his farm. Being summer, I recruited my 11 year old son Johnny, and we went to help my friend work on his roof. Our payment: a young male goat named Angst, a guinea hen and three gallons of raw goat milk.

The Scum Pond Chronicles

by Skinny Water Culture June 21, 2017

By: Will Korte

People will do some crazy things for fish, in the case of my friends and I it means using GPS imagery to try to find salt ponds and other isolated bodies of water where baby tarpon, snook and others lurk. When you find the angling version of a hole in the wall restaurant, epic fishing adventures can ensue.

You gonna eat that?

by Skinny Water Culture June 14, 2017

By: Ryan Saul

Something I’ve really come to appreciate about a yearlong Caught Not Bought challenge is that it has forced me to challenge some of the preconceived ideas about certain foods.

One food in particular is the bonito. My entire life I have been told that bonito is shark bait and nothing more because it’s too bloody to be of any food value.

I’ve been told otherwise by a few good friends over the years, but have never taken the leap to find out for myself. That changed last week.

When it rains in June

by Skinny Water Culture June 06, 2017

By: Capt. Royce Dahnke (@realtrippymahi)

 

Fly fishing false albacore in the panhandle.

During late May and early June rain can bring some of the most action pact mornings a fly fisherman could possibly ask for. We’re not talking about ordinary rain showers, but more on the lines of acres and acres of rain.

After these rains, minnows cloud out the crystal clear waters of the northwest Florida coast, and following very close behind them are thousands of bonito aka false albacore or as the old schoolers used to call them little tunny.

 

These high speed little bruisers are dialed in on the abundance of food stretched for miles right off the beach and they are willing to eat every rain minnow in their way. As all the meat hunters in the panhandle area head out on their 30+ footers to chase king mackerel and red snappers many of them pass up a very underrated fish.
