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.

Caught not Bought

Our motto in “Caught not Bought” has always been, “whatever makes the best story.” the best story is rarely developed through the safe and sensible route.

The heart behind Caught not Bought is simple, be self-sufficient and question everything. Your reason for doing things should never be because, “that’s just how it’s done”. There are processes sure, but there are always other ways – better ways.

Black Fly on Mustad

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 0 Comments

 

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.
