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.

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.

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.

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.

Black Fly on Mustad

by Skinny Water Culture May 22, 2017

By: Court Douthit

It’s that time of year again, when several of us start burning the candle at both ends. That means tarpon fishing at night around lighted structure, dawn missions for rolling fish and of course being out there from 10 a.m. to 2 or 3 p.m. whenever possible to take advantage of the high sun angle.

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.
