By CAM Staff A truck load of kayaks from Confluence Outdoors was overnighted to Texas for use in water rescues.

I

t was an historic hurricane season. With Harvey battering the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast and Irma strafing the length of Florida, damage from high winds and flooding was catastrophic. It is in such trying times that the American spirit shines. Harvey slammed ashore near Rockport, Texas on Aug. 25 and stalled out over southeast Texas, dropping up to 52 inches of rain over the next five days. The flooding was cataclysmic. Major highways turned to rivers and much of the Houston area was under water. Even as floodwaters rose, lines began forming on the sides of the highway. These were volunteers headed into the deluge to launch boats from freeway off-ramps. It looked like the launch line for the world’s largest fishing tournament. It was a proud moment for the fishing community. Anglers from all over the region rushed to the rescue pulling bass boats, jonboats and skiffs. Dubbed the Cajun Navy, this rag-tag bunch of heroes— along with official emergency response—conducted thousands of water recues. And response from the fishing and boating industries was strong as well. The following are few examples of how the fishing industry stepped in with a helping hand. Confluence Outdoors leaped into action as the magnitude of the flooding became clear. They overnighted a semi-truck load of Wilderness Systems and Perception kayaks to Houston. The boats, as well as paddles and PFDs provided by Confluence, were used in high-water rescue by Houston authorities. Honda went to work moving needed products like generators and water pumps to affected areas. And while Honda dealers went to work in rescue efforts, Honda Marine went to work making sure those dealers were stocked up to serve their communities with vital equipment. Additionally, Honda pledged $100,000 to the American Red Cross. The pledge will consist of a corporate contribution as well as a dollar-for-dollar matching gift program for Honda associate contributions. Evinrude immediately donated a boat and motor to a volunteer fire department in Lockport, Texas. The second phase of their relief effort was to deploy a wave of engines to area boatbuilders as well as food and clothing. Evinrude also agreed to match dollar-for-dollar donations to the American Red Cross made by employees. Suzuki, through its Texas dealers, donated boats, motors, ATVs and time to the rescue efforts. In addition, Suzuki provided two outboards to rescue efforts for Carolina Skiff boats that were on their way to Ron Hoover Marine, which has multiple locations in the affected area. Orvis recognized an immediate need for rain gear and wading gear. As well as supplying as many as they could, Orvis put the call out for individuals to ship waders, boots and rain jackets to the San Antonio Orvis location for distribution to rescue personnel. Platypus Fishing Line pledged to donate 100 percent of its website profits in September to the Red Cross Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. The storms and damage from this season’s hurricanes were enormous, and so was the outpouring of support. As anglers and boaters, we should be proud of the response from our community.

Fly Fishing GEAR

Simms G3 Guide Stockingfoot Wader

Goat Head Spool Clips

Without sacrificing durability, Simms’ has constructed its most comfortable, best fitting and most breathable wader in the new G3 Guide Stockingfoot Wader. The G3 Guide was awarded Best Fly Fishing Accessory at ICAST 2017. Constructed with 4-layer GORE-TEX Pro Shell fabric in the legs and three-layer in the upper, this wader concentrates durability where it is needed most while providing added breathability. It takes comfort and mobility to a new level. The wader comes equipped with a chest pocket, removable flip-out Tippet Tender , hand-warmer pockets, integrated utility tabs and also features Simms’ patented front and back leg seams, gravel guards, and suspenders with opposing YKK buckles that allow for a waist-high conversion. It is available in models for men and women.

How many times have your clunky old tippet caddies gotten tangled in the bushes or hung up in slack line? Goat Head Spool Clips are an ingenious new way to carry spools of tippets more securely. Their simple and compact design keeps your spools handy yet out of the way at the same time. A single Spool Clip will hold two standard tippet spools and fits securely to most nylon straps. Spool Clips are made in the U.S.A. from 100 percent recycled plastic. They are simple, rugged, compact, versatile and always ready when you need them.

Douglas Argus Reel There is no denying the beauty and simplicity of a clickcheck reel. Without the advantage of a disc drag, the angler is more in touch with the fish and fights are more fun. The Douglas Argus Fly Reel is a fine looking click-check reel that gets you closer to the fish. It is a shared legacy between longtime anglers and the next demanding generation. On one hand, it is a beautiful reel. On the other, there is no undue advantage given to the angler. Reel includes a twilled pouch. It is made in Upstate New York out of machined bar stock 6061 aircraft aluminum with a standard arbor, and reversible click check with rim-positioned adjustment. The rim is laser textured for palming. The reel seat is constructed of marine brass.

Arc 99+ Fly Line

There is a famous quote by Wyatt Earp, “Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.” In fly fishing, accuracy is everything. The difference between success and failure is often measured in inches. All modern fly rods are powerful, but accuracy is the new frontier in design. Making an 80-foot cast in saltwater is prospecting. Making a forty-foot cast on the nose of a laid-up tarpon is fishing. The H3 brings a fundamental shift from flex profiles to a new frontier in accuracy and purpose-driven design. Helios 3F and 3D each offer uncompromising purpose. 3F is accuracy with finesse, a dry fly angler’s dream. 3D is accuracy with power at distance for pinpoint delivery of larger flies. The difference is taper and stiffness, but the design foundation of accuracy remains constant. The H3 is the pinnacle of purpose, designed to master the moment and meet the demands of accuracy on a spring creek with a 3F or a tarpon flat with a 3D.

www.orvis.com

Designed for today’s faster action fly rods, the ARC 99+ is a half line size heavier and features a more condensed taper than standard true-to-size fly lines. This additional weight and specialized taper design loads fast action rods easier, resulting in longer, more accurate casts. Built around our 6 percent low-stretch Response Core, the ARC 99+ incorporates the latest advancements in fly line design, including transition zones, a super high floating permanent Nano PTFE coating and a low-friction, grooved line profile. We call this ZNG Technology. This makes the ARC 99+ one of the longest casting, highest floating and easiest mending fly lines on the market today. 10

ur grandfathers used old-school bamboo fly rods to create some of the greatest fishing stories of all time. That most of these stories took place on famous trout streams still influences what people think about bamboo’s place in fly fishing. Caleb Turner, of Turner Bamboo Fly Rods, has a different take on bamboo rods in the modern world. “Bamboo has a special place in the very heart of fly fishing, from the great western streams to the small streams of the Appalachians, but they don’t come to mind when people are talking the salt flats,” Caleb said. According to the Turners, there’s a misconception that there are no fast action bamboo fly rods, and that only the fastest action rods can be used in saltwater. Most rod makers and bamboo enthusiasts know this isn’t only untrue… it isn’t even the point.

“The feel found in bamboo rods is often confused with action for people picking up a bamboo rod for the first time,” Caleb said. “When they feel the action in the rod, they often over accelerate their forward cast causing them to lose energy in the line.” Caleb’s recommendation is to let the rod do the work, and to concentrate on technique. “It’s easier to feel when the rod is loaded with bamboo, and this really comes more into play for us on the flats than trout streams,” he said. What the Turners do differently than most other bamboo rod makers is cater to saltwater fly fishing. They are located in Mississippi right next to some of the most technical redfish flats on the Gulf Coast. “We design our saltwater fly rods with a fast action for stiff winds and quick-moving redfish that spook way more easily than their Louisiana counterparts,” Caleb said. With water the same color as the redfish, wind, and the need to have eyes of an Osprey, fly fishing the Mississippi Gulf Coast is more like bonefishing. “Bamboo gives us the action we need, the feel we need, and it’s able to load up at short distances but also extend a long cast to extremely wary redfish found around here.” Caleb said. “Tonkin cane grows in a 30-square-kilometer area in the Orient’s Sui River Valley. It is praised as the strongest species of bamboo with the greatest thickness of power fibers. These power fibers are what give bamboo rods what they have more than other material used in crafting fly rods, their touch. Despite what action you desire, bamboo rods offer a certain touch you just can’t get with anything else. If a rod is designed correctly, you can have all the action you need and still have that great feel. The rod lets you know when it’s loaded instead of having to figure out the timing for that individual rod.” In short, bamboo fly rods definitely have their place in modern performing fly rods. Accuracy, touch and presentation are things bamboo rod makers strive for in crafting their rods. If you get a hold of a quality rod, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by all the things it can do. For more information on bamboo fly rods or Turner Bamboo Fly Rods visit www.turnerflyrods.com or email caleb@turnerflyrods.com.

was a dime-bright fish of only 6 or so iK e pounds that still had the power to get j o s, Ic the reel deep into its backing. There is no better way to begin a fishing journey than when it all comes together early on. We knew we would be experiencing yet another trip of a lifetime. With the sun only slightly hitting the horizon and a brief glimpse of darkness for what seems like only minutes, the days are filled with subtle takes of the fly, followed by sips of Brennivin, cast and repeat. We ended the trip in the same fashion as it started. Another sleek salmon peels line and leaps. At the end of the run, Raven dips the net and we release the fish to bid farewell for what is hopefully only another year until we return. With Raven being the pilot, Brian, Kyle and I explored areas that have been experienced by few. Targeting trophy fish in such a landscape with close friends only solidifies the need for one to explore, be bewildered and experience life events that shape you as a person. Iceland will leave your soul fulfilled but still wanting more.

asting into a pool where fish leap and dragons rise brings emotions that cannot be found in many places. From the etched lava landscape to the clean cold water, Iceland offers anglers a backdrop to a story that will always begin with the statement, “It was the trip of a lifetime.” With three trips in three consecutive years, I can use the all-too cliché fishing phrase, “I am hooked” on Iceland. Page after page can be written about the acrobatic Atlantic salmon, the headstrong pull of a sea-run brown trout, the rocky canyons, waterfalls, and the art of fishing a hitched tube-fly. There is so much that pulls an angler to Icelandic rivers. For the past three years, I have spent the end of July fishing the Laxa i Kjos, a smaller river in southwestern Iceland about an hour from the capital city, Reykjavik. The river allows an angler to experience much of what Icelandic topography has to offer. From the large pools in the coastal beats, where an angler can’t help but stare out toward the Atlantic Ocean, to the meandering turns of the pastoral meadow sections, and deep narrow-cut canyons that carve the hillside until you reach Thorufoss, the impassable falls, home to a famous scene from the popular series “Game of Thrones.” The landscape, at least to me, is secondary to those that accompany you on the journey. On this year’s trip, I was fortunate enough to return to the river with good friends: Brian, who has made the trip with me before; Kyle, a friend who would be experiencing this fabled land for the first time; and our guide Hrafn (Raven), who brings an entire new appreciation to the fly fishing guide world with a persona that is somewhat mythical, just like the waters we were wading in. Arriving in Iceland, most anglers have aspirations of watching a tube fly skate across the surface of crystal waters, witnessing the careful eat of the fly and the line going tight with the initial run of one of the fly world’s most sought after quarry, an Atlantic salmon. We were fortunate enough to be those anglers. The first fish of the trip was caught soon after arrival. It

Probably one our most favorite months to fish is October. The cool weather is such a welcome treat. A lot of the boating traffic slows down, due to NFL/SEC Football. Of course hunting season will start thinning the crowds out, big time. Just like in Game of Thrones, “Winter is Coming”. With the cold fronts, come the trout and red fish feeding frenzies. If you are able to get on the front side of an approaching cold front, the cards are definitely stacked in your favor. On the calm days, our boats will be down south in the Louisiana Marsh, working the oyster reefs in 3-6 feet of water. Any type of birds working, or slicks popping up, usually mean big numbers of school speckled trout and white trout. Normally, if the white trout are thick, the big bull reds are somewhere near by. This is the main reason we tie 40lb leaders under our Boat Monkey Popping Corks. Soft plastics like Matrix or a Savage 3-D shrimp work very well. Some of our boats and guides will be working out at the Cat Island House. Much of our red fishing in October is done at Cat Island. We use the same Boat Monkey Cork rig, but we do shorten the leaders from 2 feet to about 1 foot. We also try to tip the plastics with shrimp, minnows or cut bait. Just something to put a little smell out there. The triple tails usually are making their exit this month, as are the flounders. So still check under buoys and channel marker. Also don’t be afraid to fish moving water around drains and rivers. What ever you do, just be sure to be safe and have fun. Thanks.

HUNTING It’s About That Time Again By Dustin Nelson

With the 2017-2018 Mississippi hunting season underway, folks all over are getting geared up for their choice of wild game. Some of us wing shooters have already gotten the chance to break the rust off our shotguns, but for most of us dove and early teal season is just the start to our 365-daya-year obsession. With the temperature dropping all across the south it causes excitement among family and friends. For some it means brushing in old duck blinds and getting rid of critters such as wasps, and snakes! Or maybe wiping some of last year’s fine dining out of your cast irons skillets. Nothing like firing up the Ol’ Coleman grill on a cold morning, and watching grown men and children alike smile as the smell of bacon fills the air around them. There is no time like the present to stock up on things for the upcoming waterfowl season. I myself like to shoot 2 3/4” No 4’s. They are in abundance right now all over the place, but if you think you’re going to be able to have your pick of the litter come hunting season you may wanna think again. Most of the number 4’s, no matter what the shell length are often very picked over especially the 2 3/4! With that being my personal preference I wish you the best of luck with your ammo of choice.

A lot of us keep our call lanyard dangling around our rear view mirror. Now’s a good time when coming to and from work to brush up on some calling. Rather it be the whiny squeals of Mr. Woodrow himself, or perfecting the soft quacks and feed calls it takes to bag those weary mallard drakes. There’s a time and place to hone in your calling skills and your buddies would all prefer you not try to sharpen up on opening day. If you haven’t already started shooting most of us would agree now would be a good time to break out those boom sticks and get to busting some clays. There are some of us who still like the pleasing aesthetics of a Remington 1100 from the 1970’s while many of us favor the tastefully engraved Browning Light Twelve from the 50’s. Others prefer something a bit newer like a Benelli SBE3 or a Remington V3. A shotgun should be purchased on fit and feel alone, not because it looks cool or your buddy has one. In conclusion there is not one gun or load that bests them all, nor is there one duck call that’s gonna put the ducks in your lap better than the next. Purchase whatever makes you happy and keeps you coming back for more. As always, keep God first! See y’all in the woods.

HUNTING Why We Love Minerals By Rex Holmes Jr. Vapor Trail Scents www.vaportrailscents.com

The first thing we have to get out in the open is, minerals aren’t going to make your bucks grow antlers larger than what his genetics will allow. So many people say, “Minerals don’t work and are a waste of money.” In this article we are going to cover all of the advantages of having a working mineral site. Growing antlers contain pretty much equal amounts of protein and minerals. Clearly, minerals are necessary for antler development. They are also very important for does and fawns during gestation, and lactation does have a need for calcium and magnesium. Fawns also need minerals for bone growth. Minerals play a part in benefitting animals in many ways. In areas where the soil has a high content of phosphorus a deer’s bodyweight is always higher. It is a fact that deer need extra salt during spring and summer. Let’s say a buck is lacking the minerals he needs to reach his full genetic potential. Would you not want a mineral site available for him? It is kinda like us taking vitamins. We want to make sure doe and bucks have what they need to reach their full potential. At the same time, we are helping all the other animals in our woods. The biggest part of this article has been about antlers but minerals play just as much of a part in bone growth. “Our deer are grown now and we don’t need to worry about bone growth.” What if he gets hit by a car, shot in the leg, or just breaks his leg in the woods? Animals need access to minerals. Unlike us, they know what they need and when they need it. We believe the reason some animals shy away from minerals sometimes is because they are bitter. When we built our minerals, “Dig-A-Hole” and “Dig-A-Wallow”, we actually tasted the ingredients. Just the way you would cooking soup or chili. We took all the minerals our animals really need and added sugar and salt base to make it sweet and salty. We knew if it tasted good to us the animals would destroy it. One man told me where he sprinkled it one day and the next day it looked like a grenade had went off. It is a fact animals need extra minerals. Nobody needs to hits us in the head to prove this. We have dug up holes and plenty of trail camera pictures to prove it. LOL Good hunting guys, Rex Jr. For more info on Dig-A-Hole and Dig-A-Wallow minerals visit www.vaportrailscents.com

OFFSHORE FISHING REPORT

WICKED TUNA

By Nelson Outdoors Pro – Derek Stiglet

It’s October and the Shrimping Season is in full swing which brings in some of the most exciting Yellow Fin Tuna fishing action!! October is a great time for opportunities to catch some plus sized YFT off of the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and Louisiana. The action and the thrill of chasing the trawling shrimp boats to catch YFT is absolutely incredible this time of year. The tuna will follow behind the boats as the by-catch falls from the trawling nets allowing them to feed in a frenzy. Tuna fishing the shrimp boats requires to break out the heavier tackle and rod and reel setups due to the plus sized fish that can regularly push upwards of 150 to 200+lbs!! The Penn Internationals and Shimano Tiagras are just a couple examples of the setups typically used for this style of fishing. My go-to rig would be either a 30w or a 50w spooled with 80lb Momoi H-Catch Diamond monofilament tied directly to a 60lb Seaquar or Frenzy Flouorocarbon leader using the double Uni-knot with a Mustad Demon 3x strong circle hook using a single Uniknot or a Snell Knot. Simply, follow behind the boats as they trawl, kick the engine(s) in neutral and begin to chum, ultimately attracting the huge YFT to the surface at boat side. Chumming will also attract Blackfin tuna, bonito and even sharks at times. Pitch a chunk of pogy, fresh bonito or a live bait on the circle hook and be ready for action as the tuna will peel line off the reel and run deep and fast!! The Temperatures are beginning to be cooler and the Marine Sea Conditions begin to worsen this time of year at times so you will have to pick your days to make the run to the shrimping grounds.

Bass Fishing Report John.s.deshauteurs@gmail.com IG: @maniyakfishing88 Pelican Products Brand Ambassador Huk Performance Fishing Prostaff Everything Kayak Prostaff Native Watercraft Prostaff Brisk mornings on a lake is guaranteed to bring a smile to my face. I have been excited about this time all summer long and I am excited to tell you why. This means that the bass are in the fall transition and the barometric pressure is changing. In my first few seasons bass fishing in the fall, I found it to be the most difficult season to fish compared to the other three seasons. It’s like all the bass agreed not to eat anything I threw at them. Cast after cast I would throw the tackle box at them, but no bites. I had to learn their patterns, and I had to learn about the locations I was fishing in. Something I learned across the board in fall fishing is that bass are running into the back of creeks having a feast on baitfish for the winter. Once I learned about this pattern, fall fishing quickly turned into my all-time favorite season. Knowing that the bass are feeding aggressively, I like to keep my tactics simple and have what I need already rigged and ready to fish. With that

10 MISS_GULF OCTOBER 2017

oct_GULF_2017.indd 10

being said, a topwater bait is what I start with because of low light penetration. The sounds of the baits on the surface will trigger curious bites from bass. Either walking the dog, throwing a popper or burning a buzz bait; either tactic is affective in covering a lot of water finding surface feeding bass. If the surface bite slows or is ineffective, I will then go to a jerk bait, square bill, lipless crankbait, big swim baits or jigs. After the sun has peeked and the lake has more light penetration, the bass can react to what seems to be an injured or fleeing baitfish. No matter what bait I am actually throwing at that particular time, I like to try and make my bait profile slightly larger than what the bass are feeding on. If the bass are feeding on minnows or shad in the two-inch range, I will try to throw my bait at least an inch bigger than the schooling baitfish. I learned that this will trigger bites from the bigger bass in the schools. The best times to get out on the water in the fall transition is a couple of days before a front moves in. These bass can sense a change in the barometric pressure and knows when it’s time to feed. I hope these tactics were helpful and you can implement them the next time you’re out on the lake, I know it has helped me. As always, please remember to wear your PFD while on the water and even though the temps are dropping, it is just as important to stay hydrated. Tight lines and see you out on the water.

Captain Hallie Burnett

By Cameron Staff ctober is a great month for catching O redfish, but it is also Cancer Awareness

Month. Captain Hallie Burnett happens to be very familiar with both. I recently had the opportunity to hear Cpt. Hallie speak at a seminar hosted by Ocean Marine Group in Ocean Springs, MS. I learned a lot about redfishing, including how, when, and where to catch them. I also learned that while redfishing is her passion, promoting early detection and cancer awareness is her mission. Captain Hallie Burnett, a graduate of Kansas State University, moved to Gulf Breeze, FL in 2002. Just four months later, her sister passed away from breast cancer. Unfortunately, this would not be the family’s only brush with cancer. In 2007, both her brother and brother-in-law would also pass due to brain and prostate cancer. Just a few years later, in 2010, her other sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. Fortunately, she survived. Hallie began fishing to deal with her grief. She started out fishing in tournaments and charity events. It wasn’t long before she started hosting her own tournaments under the banner “Save the BOOBers” for breast cancer awareness. In 2015, she

decided that she just wasn’t doing enough to raise awareness. So, she put a big pink ribbon on her boat (which was named FV Early Detection) and got some sponsors for tournaments. “When I walked into the first captain’s meeting in Destin, FL for the Emerald Coast Redfish Circuit, thirty guys looked up like, “what are you doing here?” After all, you don’t see many female captains on the circuit. She informed them she was on a mission to raise awareness for early detection. After about eight months of fishing tournaments for early detection, sponsors started calling. Companies such as Yeti Coolers, Costa Del Mar, and Power Pole had all jumped onboard to support her mission to raise awareness. She had just sold the Fishing Vessel Early Detection, and was in the market for another boat. A friend, Hunter Ray, suggested she look into Sportsman’s Boats. “I’ve seen them around but that’s just way out of my league”, she told him. Hunter encouraged her to contact them and share her story. So, she looked online and found Boyd’s Marine in Dothan Al. “I wanted to be with a boat company that got that it wasn’t all about trophies and prize money. It was truly about, I want to be recognized for my mission.” Within two weeks, the deal was done. It was a game changer. It brought more sponsors, helped

her be more competitive, and helped the mission. In 2013, Cpt. Hallie Burnett established the non-profit charity, Friends In Survival and Hope(F.I.S.H.). The charity has been funds by fishing tournaments to help fund those with terminal illnesses through F.I.S.H. Wishes. “Granting F.I.S.H. Wishes is the ultimate goal of all my endeavors.” In October, Team Early Detection’s Cpt. Hallie, along with partner Robert Gautney will be competing in the IFA Redfish Tour Championship in Venice, LA. And the mission continues…

FLY FISHING

“Red October”

‘ (Is that too cliche?)

Fly Fishing Forecast – October By Captain Richard Schmidt www.richardschmidtflyfishing.com

PADDLE SPORTS IN PASCAGOULA, MS. All summer long I keep telling my clients, “If you think this is good, wait till October!” I’m sure yall have walked outside and already felt the cool, crisp air and light north wind on your face after the passing of a cold front. To many outdoorsmen, this means it’s time to hit the deer woods, but to me, it means it’s time to hunt redfish. The cooler air tends to make the water a little cleaner and the fish easier to see in October. Also

NOTHING TYPICAL ABOUT US.

2034 MARKET STREET 228-769-6699 NELSONOUTDOORS.COM

the redfish seem to swim a little shallower, many times with their backs exposed and their eyes just below the surface of the water. This makes sight fishing for them easy for one, but also super exciting watching them race in the shallow water to eat your fly! I like to fish the low tides for them. Staring

TS IN PASCAGOULA, MS.

October 21, the low tide will be in the mornings. You can find them hugging the banks of the marshy areas around oysters. You can also find them near the mouth of the duck ponds and near points, slowly swimming/crawling looking for crabs near the banks. the older I get, the worse my eyes are, so, I like to use a shorter leader so can see my fly easier. The fish won’t be spooked by your fly line and this also will help your cast to be more accurate. I use floating line exclusively. I like the 9ft, 12 pound tapered leaders that I buy from Nelson Outdoors in Pascagoula. Then I trim about 16-20 inches off of it and tie on a foot of 20lb fluorocarbon. It’s best to feed the redfish what they are looking, you don’t go to Chick-fil-a looking for hamburgers and the reds aren’t in the shallows looking for fish. They want crabs, so I throw lightly weighted crab patterns in brown or olive colors. Accuracy is key, just put the crab close to the fishes pie hole, give it a strip or two and hang on! However, trout setting will be rewarded accordingly. The bite is so visual, it will take all your might not to trout set when you see the fish explode on your fly. Enjoy theSTREET cool 2034 MARKET weather and I’ll see ya out there!228-769-6699

PADDLE SPORTS Close Encounters of the Paddling Kind By Eric Richards Pascagoula Paradise Paddlers

in a stealth mode, providing much closer, and sometimes exciting encounters with the local animal life. Startling a sleeping alligator lying in the sun can be quite the thrill. Ask my wife, who thinks that screaming BACK UP! BACK UP! will magically make our tandem kayak go backwards at warp speed. Flapping her arms like a hovering kingfisher didn’t help either. At the end of the event, we both shared a lasting memory of an 8’ alligator leaping into the water 20’ in front of us. My most exciting animal encounter occurred recently, while paddleboarding with friend and neighbor, Alice Baker on a lake off the lower Pascagoula. Alice was “pedaling” her Hobie

There are many reasons why people spend time paddling the Pascagoula River basin waterways. Paddlers love the serenity of gliding quietly across the water under their own power. They also love being close to nature in the way that paddling can provide. Quietly paddling a kayak or paddleboard through the marshes and swamps allow the paddler to get great views of the natural wonders that fill this river basin. Most of the scenery is stationary, sort of a painting that we glide by and view on our way to the next painting. And repeated over and over on each trip. My favorite views tend to be the animal life that is encountered on each trip. Paddling allows a kayak or paddleboard to operate

pedalboard, which is a paddleboard that incorporates the Hobie flipper drive and has handlebars for steering while working the stairmaster type propulsion. Alice was about 50’ from me when I heard her scream “Oh my God!”. I immediately looked to see water start swirling under her paddleboard and pushing the board up, out of the water. The board leaned to what I thought was an un recoverable angle, with Alice hanging on to the handlebars for dear life. Fortunately, the board and Alice, came back down, right side up. As I’m watching this event, with water being churned way more than from any startled alligator that I’ve seen, and Alice about to fall into the maelstrom, I’m thinking that this may not turn out well. Fortunately, my fear was short lived as Alice yelled “Manatee!”. Thank goodness that I didn’t have to make any decisions about diving in to save Alice from a giant alligator, although

I’m SURE THAT I WOULD HAVE. Alice saw the manatee lying motionless, just below the surface as her paddleboard was approaching and yelled. Had she not seen the manatee, we both would have been thinking that based on the commotion, it was the largest alligator that we had ever seen. Animal encounters don’t always have to be exciting to be memorable. A bald eagle diving on a fish, a dolphin riding within an arm’s length of the kayaks bow, or otters playing tag, are all great memory makers. There’s something to see on every trip, so keep your eyes peeled, as you never know what you’ll see.

Kayak Fishing Report By Benton Parrott dbparrott@bellsouth.net. Early a.m. fishing and home in time for College football! The water temperature is dropping and that should heat up the fishing. Early morning it’s hard to beat throwing a topwater looking for trout and reds. I have been having great results with the skitterwalk and the spook jr. I am using the bone white pattern because it is a confidence bait for me. I can search lots of ground with a topwater locating fish in open water. When fishing up in the creeks I use a soft plastics on a jig head. I like to throw the saltwater assassin sea shad on a 1/8 oz. jig head and flutter bounce them down grass lines and creek mouths. Reds, trout, and flounder love them. This

is the time the big reds start gathering up and they are always fun to play with out of the kayak. Not to miss in October! The IFA Kayak Fishing Tour will be holding its Championship Oct.19th through the 21st in Venice, LA. This is a 2 day event that is open to any angler that has fished any 2 other IFA events in any division from South Carolina to Texas. The Champion will be determined on the anglers overall aggregate length of the 2 days fishing on your longest legal trout and redfish from each day of the event. If you missed out on the IFA this year look for them starting up again next spring. The MBKFA is having their

11th annual 5 Rivers tournament on Oct.28th with the weigh in on the causeway in Spanish Fort, AL. This is a weigh in tournament and there is divisions for slot redfish, speckled trout, flounder, bass, and inshore slam consisting over your best red fish, trout, and flounder combo. There will be lots of great prizes and good food. This is always a fun tournament to fish with a division for everyone!

h, the fall. It brings us colorful foliage, football, fresh apple cider and big ornery brown trout. When the mercury begins to take the plunge and daylight starts to dwindle, big mature brown trout start their yearly routine of procreation. What follows is a feeding binge of mature trout. Fish that have been uncatchable all summer throw caution to the wind. This is not the time for small flies and delicate presentations. Big gaudy nymphs and large streamers are the name of the game in fall. Large stonefly patterns like Girdle Bugs and Pat’s Rubber Legs are good choices as are the usual generic mayfly patterns like Hare’s Ears and Pheasant Tails, just opt for

a size 8 instead of an 18. My personal favorite fall flies are streamers, and something with a little bit of color, too. For some reason big fall browns seem to like streamers with a bit of orange in them. Sculpin patterns can be especially deadly this time of year. Whether it be the giant protein-packed snack a big sculpin delivers or a triggered attack response implanted in trout to protect their roe, it should be used to your advantage. It is also the time for stealth. With overly large trout sometimes holding in ridiculously shallow water, being sneaky pays huge dividends. Wear drab colored shirts at the very least. Even a camouflage jacket is not too far fetched. I normally work a river upstream, but this is not the case when fishing fall streamers. I’ll work it down. I can be much quieter and more stealthy when walking with the current as opposed to against it. If possible, stay on the bank as much as you can. Most fish will hit on the swing, so the area you expect the take to come will be downstream of your location. If you were working upstream, you could have already spooked a fish. Cast across, swing it down, take a few sneaky steps down stream, think about it, cast across, swing it down. Walking the river is crucial. Don’t just haphazardly crash through the water on your way to a good run. Hunt the river this time of year. Take a few steps and watch. This is where a good pair of polarized glasses are worth their weight in gold. Look over the entire stream, not just the typical haunts. You may be pleasantly surprised and amazed by what you’ll see. Trout will still be positioned in good usual runs too, but much more apt to attack your offering. Instead of heading to the deer stand or taking up a spot on the couch to watch the big game, get out on the stream. Just maybe, a kyped-up, big old slab of spotted butter will end up in your net.

he dry brisk November morning air is a welcome change to Florida’s Forgotten Coast residents, but not just for the obvious reasons. The summer heat has lifted, and the mighty red drum is hungry and looking to fill her belly with whatever kind of crustacean or finny fish she can get close to. As you move stealthily along the marsh, you search for the signs: a wake along the grass line or a tail piercing the water’s surface. Either one is worthy of a cast and, if presented properly,

can result in the silence of the morning stalk being broken by the crash of a topwater plug being engulfed, the scream of a reel’s drag and some enthusiastic expletives. Stalking the skinnies of the marsh can be a challenging experience. Reds spook easily, so stealth is a must, as are accurate and purposeful casts; all this is what makes the hunt so rewarding. The waters of Franklin County are teeming with reds, making the chance of fooling, fighting and releasing a mighty red an extremely attainable and rewarding experience. If you come to this area to chase reds, any shallow-drafting boat will put you in a position for success, but some are better suited than others. Ideally, the ability to pole, paddle or scull your vessel will give you the advantage of stealth, but a trolling motor and a well-planned use of tides and wind also works well on the flats. Franklin County TDC is giving away a free red fishing excursion this month, so enter for your chance to win and make your redfish dream a reality. The reds and so many other fish are abundant in some of the most beautiful places on earth, right here. Don’t let another fall go by without experiencing this amazing time of year along Florida’s Forgotten Coast. For more details or to sign up, go to: www. floridasforgottencoast.com.

DAVID MANEY, FOWLER’S SUNGLASSES

W

alking a shallow trout stream, casting to structure in lakes or making sure you’re going after the biggest fish in an offshore school you need functional high performance UV sunglasses to see beneath the water. One pair may not fit the function for each of these varied UV demands. Shallow streams with bright sunlight require amber for most people. Deeper murky waters and overcast conditions need grey or amber. For offshore with bright sun and the need to see deeper into the blue waters, your best bet is blue mirror or grey. As an avid angler and someone who’s been involved in the sunglasses industry for over 20 years, my advice is to always try to match the sunglasses to the condition. This requires keeping several different UV’s with you. Most sunglass cases come with clip-on attachments so keeping a few pair of sunglasses with you has never been easier. As the conditions change during your day, you’ll be prepared to match your UV formula with the change. Once you’ve prepared yourself for these UV changes you’ll be on top of your angling game no matter what.

For the best overall coverage in any condition I recommend one pair of blue mirror/grey and one pair of green mirror/ amber. This simple modification in your sight fishing tactics will make a huge difference in your angling success. Tight Lines, David Maney Fowler’s Pharmacy 888-340-9021 www.FowlersSunglasses.com

FLY FISHING

D

uring the fall and winter, there is not a better saltwater game fish to target with a fly rod than redfish. Plentiful throughout the Gulf States, the redfish provides a great fly fishing opportunity for anglers of all skill levels who want to sight fish in shallow clear water. I’ve always considered the redfish to be the perfect saltwater game fish. It offers the angler a perfect venue to hone his or her sightfishing skills. Why? Because of two important factors: accessibility and plentiful fishing opportunity. From a logistical standpoint, most anglers can book a flight for great redfish destinations from most major cities in the U.S. Texas, Louisiana, Alabama and the panhandle of Florida are prime winter redfish spots. Each of these locations has experienced fly fishing guides who are knowledgeable and professional. Access to the marsh flats, where the redfish live in the winter, is quite easy and the number of redfish you see in a day can be mind blowing! Three factors for successful sight fishing to Redfish: 1) Can you see the fish? Visibility is the most important factor when sight fishing in shallow water. It’s great when you have a bluebird day and you’re seeing the fish from 100 yards away. However, Mother Nature usually has her own ideas on conditions. So, being able to identify fish even in tough lighting is important. Look for odd shapes in the water, V shaped wakes or even a subtle dimple that breaks the water’s surface. These are all signs of redfish feeding in an area. TIP: Use yellow polarized lenses. These will provide better contrast under tough lighting conditions. 2. Can I make a short cast? Many redfish are hooked 20 feet or less from the boat. Believe

me, the short cast is the toughest cast to make when sight fishing to redfish. Why? Because we are so focused on perfecting the 60-foot cast and neglect the importance of dropping a cast less than 20 feet from the boat. The 60foot cast is important, but it rarely comes into play when sight fishing to redfish. Work on your short cast as well. TIP: Work on a flip cast. Only cast the head of your fly line at targets on your left and right sides at 10 to 20 feet max. 3) Where should I place the fly? Redfish can see very well. I’ve seen them chase a fly from 20 feet way. However, I find placing a fly a couple feet in front of their noses works best. Once you’ve made the cast, let the fly settle to the bottom. As the redfish moves toward the fly, begin to move the fly with short strips. Once the redfish sees the fly, it will swim over and inhale it. At this point all you have to do is keep the rod tip on the water and strip strike to set the hook. TIP: On an open lawn, place small Frisbees at 5, 10, 20 and 30 feet from your casting position. Work on placing the fly in the center of each Frisbee without a false cast.

n May, Minnesota angler Jake Robinson tied his own catch-and-release state record with a 49-inch flathead catfish from the Minnesota River. Mark Mosby, of St. Anthony, Minn., had apparently seen enough of that mess. In August, he went out on the St. Croix River and hauled in a massive flathead that measured 52 ½ inches in length and 32 inches in girth. Minnesota DNR recently announced that it is the new state record for the catch-and-release category. Actually, Mosby describes himself as an occasional angler.
