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.

Pitted

by Skinny Water Culture June 02, 2017

By: Jason Fernandez

I am completely and utterly consumed with fishing, there’s not one cohesive/coherent thought that traverses my mind on a daily basis that doesn’t originate or conclude with angling.

Since last year’s commitment to chase what swims as a career, it’s been what I imagine to be a big wave surfers quest to conquer the pipelines. Not just once, but on a consistent basis.

It’s no easy task, but what’s triumph without risk – there are no guarantees. Either stand beach side or paddle out and “wuhhh-pahhh, get pitted”. The time and money I’ve put in has been more than worth it.

I’ve developed a bi-annual habit of leaving the southeast Louisiana mud, assembling a band of equally mental friends (and understanding girlfriends) and making a trip to somewhere tropical to wade fish.

Fishing the Flats The Mac Dill Air Force Base

by Skinny Water Culture April 25, 2017

 

The flats around the Mac Dill air force base have been off limits to boating and fishing since the events of September 11th, 2001. Since then the flats have been no-mans land and every seasoned bay area angler would be keen on any opportunity to drop a line. I opened a message from one of the guys at Operation Home Shores saying that they were opening the gates so to speak and allowing the public to fish the flats for a day. I needed to know more. I was then filled in with all the details required In order to participate in a day of fishing around the base.

 

I needed a few things: 1. Notify them of my desire to participate in the event, 2. Who my passengers will be, and 3. A background check on each attendee. The first person to come to mind was a cousin of mine that also happens to be Combat Arms Trainer at Mac Dill and owner of RK Training Dynamics.

Our sons are the same age so we often spoke of making a fishing trip happen, and the time was finally upon us. I called him up and we discussed a third member and quickly agreed his father-in-law would join us as well.
