20 ATM Dive Watch just $99

“You simply will not find a better made precision dive watch for such an unbelievable price.” –– George Thomas, Noted watchmaker & historian

OUR CLIENTS LOVE STAUER DIVE WATCHES…

“...I love it. I have several Stauer watches and once again you don’t disappoint.” — F., Jersey City, NJ

Your Greenlight to A Deep Dive Without Going in the Red E

At just $99, the Evergreen Diver goes deep without going overboard on price.

very year in Basel, Switzerland, the world’s best-known luxury watchmakers gather to display their new timepieces. It’s a great event for spotting timepieces that standout–– in performance and in personality. We saw one impossible to ignore: a precision dive watch with an arresting green dial. But we also saw the five-figure price tag and knew we could bring our customers that exact same precision and stand out appeal for a whole lot less. The Stauer Evergreen Diver is that timepiece. Built like a submersible battleship with a stainless steel case, caseback, and band, the Evergreen Diver is water-resistant down to 660 feet or 20 atmospheres, a feat facilitated by a hardened crystal and screw-down crown. Green On Your Wrist AND In Your Pocket. You could pay an awful lot elsewhere for this verdant virtuoso, but the majority of the cost is in the big designer name upcharge. We think those guys are all wet. This is how you own a top-of-the-line dive watch without helping pay for some marketing guy’s yacht.

“Whether you’re looking for something to wear in the ocean, the office, and everywhere in between, a diver’s watch is for you.” — Business Insider, 2018

Satisfaction Guaranteed or Your Money Back. Wear the Evergreen Diver for 30 days. If you’re not completely happy, send it back for a full refund of the item price. Limited Reserve. A watch of this caliber, with a price that won’t drag you under, takes 6 months to create and won’t stick around for long. Call today!

MAHI T

he transition into the summer months brings calmer days more viable for offshore fishing. This is the season when waterways become flooded with snowbirds and weekend warriors, although current fuel prices may keep the pressure off those hot offshore numbers. With mahi season in full swing in the Atlantic, scouting the ocean for signs of life offshore is easily most exciting this time of year. Trolling for mahi near weedlines, diving birds and floating debris is extremely productive. These fish will eat just about anything they see, so much so that I wouldn’t be surprised if you could get a hookup on a banana peel. A trolling spread for mahi doesn’t have to be elaborate. Four lines or less will get the job done. Their penchant for jumping and swimming zigzags on the surface makes tangles in the spread an unfortunate reality. Lines can be kept short, as mahi will eat near a moving boat. While fishing in heavier weeds, shorter lines allow lures to skip more to kick off grass. Lures that don’t like to rid themselves of grass can alternatively be more easily observed and manually cleared with this method. Keeping the lines short also increases the chances of a hooked fish bringing the school of mahi-mahi with them to the boat. The farther back the lines are when a mahi is hooked, the more

time the rest of the school has to lose interest in following their buddy. Once a hooked mahi is boatside, leave them in the water as a swimming, codependent chumbag. The rest of the school often follows them, giving you a chance to hook up to more. Have something on your boat to cast out in this situation. Nearly anything will do when the school is in a frenzy. Jigs, lures, cut bait, live bait, possibly banana peels. Sometimes mahi will turn their nose up at certain baits, but the key can be entirely within the presentation. They usually prefer a bait that is teasing them and just almost out of reach. Alternate between letting the bait fall and twitching it away from them. At times, you might get ready to leave a closed-mouth school only to finally have your bait crushed as you quickly reel in the pitch bait. If this is the case, they might just be in a mood to chase something moving more quickly, and getting back on the troll may be a better idea. Diving frigates and floating debris attract more than just mahi-mahi, and there are epic sightings to be had in the open water, everywhere in between.

LESS IS MORE WHEN RIGGING THE BOAT

Tim Barefoot

I

n a time when we are in full-throated offshore (and inshore) fishing, I’d like to address the meaning of the title of this article. We all want to put gadgets on the boat to make it more efficient and comfortable. What I’m getting ready to say may offend some folks, but the ones who actually fish for results—rather than to look good or appease mom and the kids—will get it. Less is more means the more open deck space I have, the better the dance floor is when the action starts. Period. I want a clean deck, free of “toe breakers” and stumbling blocks commonly referred to as seats and coolers I have to squeeze by. When there’s a fish ripping off drag and changing directions, I want open lanes to move up to the front of the boat or around back. You see, I’ve reached a point in life that I’m going to catch the fish I want to catch, the way I want to catch them. I troll some, but it’s early in the day to locate stacks of bait and fish. When the sun comes up to the 10 or 11 o’clock position, I start posting up with the Rhodan or drifting with a kite or float baits out. I keep a bait near the bottom and baits in

the middle water column if they are marking on the recorder or when we are getting bites on the deeper baits. What we do mid-morning is a result of how hard the current is running, the wind direction and speed or a combination of these things. If I could recommend one thing to make your boat rigging most complete, it would be a Rhodan or some other trolling motor that will keep you in place, or slow your drift with the kite directly out behind you, like you are trolling with the kite out. This will allow you to fish the lower levels of the water column for the wahoo bite in the middle of the day with lighter tackle and lighter weight jigs, and also drop a bait in front of Mr. Grouper while on the drift. Keep an eye on the recorder as you are making these long drifts, and mark the areas of bait, fish and bites so you can run back up and make the same drift again. I said all that to say this: Who says you have to use a ballyhoo trolled at 6 or 8 knots to catch fish? Slow it down to a drift or post up on a mark and catch the pelagic and bottom fish while flying the kite or with float baits. When you’ve got all that going on, excess comforts or gadgetry sometimes impede your fishing rather than making it easier. Stay tuned to upcoming videos illustrating this style fishing, but remember to keep the deck clean. Less is more. See more from Tim Barefoot at barefootcatsandtackle.com.

ROMAN GLADIATORS FROZEN IN TIME FOR OVER 1,600 YEARS

Found: 1,600-Year-Old Roman Gladiator Coins Hold the Glory of Rome In the Palm of Your Hand

W

hen your famous father appoints you Caesar at age 7, you’re stepping into some very big sandals. But when that father is Emperor Constantine the Great, those sandals can be epic! Constantius II, became Caesar at 7, and a Roman Emperor at age 20. Today, he is remembered for helping continue his father’s work of bringing Christianity to the Roman Empire, as well as for his valiant leadership in battle. But for many collectors, his strongest legacy is having created one of the most fascinating and unique bronze coins in the history of the Roman Empire: the “Gladiator’s Paycheck”.

the Gladiators Paycheck

Roman bronze coins were the “silver dollars” of their day. They were the coins used for daily purchases, as well as for the payment of wages. Elite Roman Gladiators—paid to do battle before cheering crowds in the Colosseum—often received their monthly ‘paycheck’ in the form of Roman bronze coins. But this particular Roman bronze has a gladiator pedigree like no other! Minted between 348 to 361 AD, the Emperor’s portrait appears on one side of this coin. The other side depicts a literal clash of the gladiators. One warrior raises his spear menacingly at a second warrior on horseback. Frozen in bronze for over 1,600 years, the drama of this moment can still be felt when you hold the coin. Surrounding this dramatic scene is a Latin inscription—a phrase you would never expect in a million years!

Happy Days are Here Again The Latin inscription surrounding the gladiators reads: “Happy Days are Here Again” (Fel Temp Reparatio). You see, at the time these coins were designed,

the Emperor had just won several important military battles against the foes of Rome. At the same time, Romans were preparing to celebrate the 1100th anniversary of the founding of Rome. To mark these momentous occasions, this new motto was added and the joyful inscription makes complete sense.

A Miracle of Survival for 1,600 Years

For more than sixteen centuries, these stunning coins have survived the rise and fall of empires, earthquakes, floods and two world wars. The relatively few Roman bronze coins that have survived to this day were often part of buried treasure hoards, hidden away centuries ago until rediscovered and brought to light. These authentic Roman coins can be found in major museums around the world. But today, thanks to GovMint. com, you can find them a little closer to home: your home! Claim your very own genuine Roman Gladiator Bronze Coin for less than $40 (plus s/h). Each coin is protected in a clear acrylic holder for preservation and display. A Certificate of Authenticity accompanies your coin. Unfortunately, quantities are extremely limited. Less than 2,000 coins are currently available.

hether it’s a mess of channel catfish for supper or trophy blue cats, I love catfishing! From Texas to Virgina and Nebraska to Florida, I have caught catfish all over the country. Some of my favorite locations are the Santee Cooper reservoirs in South Carolina and the mighty Tennessee River in the stretch from Tennessee into Alabama. Here’s some information on how I catch them in lakes and rivers. These fishing styles will work for catfish all over the country.

ON THE LAKE

I use Abu Garcia 7000 reels with an egg sinker, swivel and 6/0 to 8/0 circle hook. If you are looking for smaller fish, downsize your hooks and baits. Bait can be fresh cut bream, shad, hotdogs, nightcrawlers or even chicken breast chunks. All of these work. On Moultrie, you can anchor up and wait, but usually you can cover more area drifting. Set your rods all on one side of the boat and let them drag along beside or behind the boat. If there is no wind, you might need to troll. If there’s lots of wind, you might need to drop drift socks or a bucket to slow your drift. For this setup, you can use the same reels and baits, but you will need to change your terminal tackle. Use a three-way swivel to attach a slinky, Lindy weight to the bottom eye on 6- to 12-inch piece of 10- to 20-pound leader. You want your weight line to be lighter than your main so if the weight snags you don’t lose your whole rig. On the back eye, use 24 to 36 inches of heavier leader to your hook. Some people also put a small cork a few inches in front of the hook to keep the bait just off the bottom.

Santee Cooper is one of my favorite destinations for big catfish and smaller eaters, too. It’s actually two lakes, Lake Marion, the upper lake, and Moultrie, the lower lake. These lakes both have giant flatheads, huge blues and eating-sized channels. When fishing Lake Marion, I like to anchor up, cast out a bunch of baits and wait. If no bites in 30 minutes, I change locations and try again. There ON THE RIVER are flats and standing timber, and you just keep When fishing the Tennessee River from moving until you find feeding fish. Sometimes you Lake Chickamauga in Tennessee to Alabama’s mark lots of fish that aren’t feeding. Lake Pickwick, I usually go much heavier on

equipment. I go with Penn Fathoms on Big Cat Fever Rods with 80-pound braid main and 100-pound leaders, sinker slides for bigger weights, and 8/0 to 10/0 hooks, depending on how big the baits are. Sometimes a double-hook rig improves your odds. Skipjack, fresh or frozen, is the preferred bait, with bream and shad as backups. Don’t be afraid to use giant baits in big water. There are some giant fish down there! In rivers, where’s there’s a good current, you can bottom bump. This technique is also popular on the Mississippi River. You slow the boat so the current carries your lines downstream. Use just enough weight so your baits walk and bounce along the bottom. This is very productive and allows you to cover lots of water. Another thing we do sometimes where the river is fairly flat and slow is to slow drift with all the rods and lines straight down and the hooks just off the bottom. If you are marking good fish, make several passes over them. Sometimes this will fire them up. I hope this helps you catch more and bigger catfish next time you go. Please remember, if you are not going to eat it, don’t kill it. Gary Turner is a regular contributor to Coastal Angler and The Angler magazines. Contact him at gary@purgeright.com.

HUNTING

GIANT PERMIT IN THE SURF

By Emily Rose Hanzlik

F

reshwater or salt, I enjoy fishing for anything that swims. Specifically targeting the largest fish of a species is what I enjoy most. Whether it’s grass carp or jack crevalle, I actively seek out IGFA records to try and break. Right now, permit is on my hit list. Permit inhabit the western Atlantic from Massachusetts to southeastern

Brazil. They occur throughout the West Indies and the Gulf of Mexico, and less-frequently in Bermuda. The species is most abundant in southern Florida, where they can primarily be found inshore around bridges, inlets, on flats, deep cuts, channels and holes adjacent to these areas. They will, however, also frequent offshore wrecks, oil platforms and artificial reefs. Due to its striking similarity to the Florida pompano, in its juvenile stage, many anglers often misidentify young permit. You can distinguish the two from each other by the color of their chins, fins or bellies. Pompano will have a more yellow coloring, where a permit will be more orange in color. Permit and pompano are both members of the jack family, Carangidae, which includes about 140 species worldwide. Permit primarily feed on crustaceans and mollusks, which they crush between a pharyngeal bony plate at the back of their mouth and granular teeth on their tongue. Most fishing guides prefer to use blue crabs in the 2- to 3-inch range. Since I am specifically targeting large fish, I prefer to use fullgrown speckled crabs, which can range anywhere from 4 to 6 inches. The smallest permit I’ve caught on these big baits weighed right at the 20-pound mark. The All-Tackle IGFA World Record permit weighed in at an amazing 60 pounds and was caught out of Brazil in 2002. When fishing for permit from the beach, it’s best to know your surroundings. I always fish the holes adjacent to rip currents. To find these, you first need to locate the sandbars, which are the “whitewater areas” in the surf where the waves are breaking the most. Next, you need to find a spot along the sandbar where the wave action seems to settle. That is the cut. It is a break in the sandbar where water is forced out on a falling tide. The water rushing out causes a rip current, which is most prevalent on both sides of the cut. Finally, the areas immediately to the left and right of the rip current and just behind the sandbars are where the holes are usually located. These features can change location depending on the strength of the tide. Permit can be found in these holes at any time. However, late spring through early fall is the best season to target large permit from the beach.

Tips for Catching Your “PB” This Summer By CAM Staff

W

ith texting and social media pushing the English language in an inexorable backward slide toward a form of communication that resembles hieroglyphs of the ancients, the abbreviation “PB” has become common in angler jargon. In case you didn’t already know, PB is short for personal best. You’ll often see it used on online forums and social media alongside photos of enthusiastic anglers holding large bass. “PB! Texas-rigged Ol’ Monster. 8-2,” such a post might read. Translated, the author of the post is indicating Lewis Smelcer caught this monster they caught the largest bass 14-pound, 4-ounce largemouth at they’ve ever caught on a large Porter Lake on March 5. plastic worm. It weighed FWC TROPHY CATCH PHOTO. 8-pounds, 2-ounces. If you bass fish, catching a 10-pound-plus fish is kind of the ultimate goal. However, the PB concept allows for legitimate celebration for the somewhat lesser achievement of catching a very nice fish that might not weigh 10 pounds. On the other hand, true lunker hunters might have surpassed the 10-pound mark many times, and PB provides another goal to strive for. Whichever camp you fall in, here are some tips that might help you make a PB post this summer: • Fish Where Your PB Lives. Do your research and find out where anglers are catching big fish. Florida’s TrophyCatch program has an online database where anglers report catching bass heavier than 8 pounds. Information provided includes date, size and location of the catch. All sorts of trends can be mined from the site’s searchable data. Find a trophy bass factory near you and fish it. • Fish For One Bite. When you specifically target big fish, sometimes you won’t catch anything else... or anything at all. The lures, tactics and locations for large bass are not the same for more aggressive smaller bass. Prepare to fish hard and fish patiently for just a few bites. Be ready to set the hook when it happens. • Fish The Thick Stuff. In summer, fish have settled into predictable patterns. The big fish are going to be holed up in the thickest cover they can find, whether that’s matted grass or a logjam. If you have to worry about how you’re going to get a fish out of a hole, that’s where your lure needs to be. • Fish Large Lures. Large bass have life figured out. They are lazy and are not likely to be out in open water chasing 2-inch shad around. They put on all that weight by expending as little energy as possible while consuming as many calories as possible. They eat the large, infrequent meals that show up right in front of them. Big 6-inch swimbaits, large jigs or huge plastic worms, if it looks like a slow-moving mouthful a large bass is more likely to eat it. It’s up to you to fish methodically and put your lure right in a fish’s face. For more bass fishing tips, visit coastalanglermag.com.

Gulf Anglers Offered Free Release Gear R eturn ’Em Right, a program that aims to reduce catch-and-release mortality for Gulf of Mexico fish suffering from barotrauma, has launched a new program for anglers throughout the Gulf of Mexico. By participating in a short online review of best practices, anglers can receive free release gear valued at $100 to help reef fish survive release. Each year, more than 10 million federally managed reef fish are released, and at least one million of those will die soon after being released. A main reason is barotrauma, a pressure-related injury fish experience when reeled up from depth. Anglers may observe barotrauma when they release a fish, only to see it float away on the surface. For every one percent of landed and released fish anglers save through learning and using best release practices, over 100,000 reef fish could survive to grow, possibly spawn and be caught again. “I have enjoyed teaching my daughter to fish and know one way to keep the fisheries healthy for her generation is to release them properly. I hope Gulf anglers take advantage of Return ’Em Right. Free gear and training to benefit the fishery is a win-win,” said JD Dugas, a recreational angler from Louisiana.

Return ’Em Right promotes best release practices, with an emphasis on proper use of descending devices, which research shows can improve long-term survival of reef fish by up to three times. Descending devices are weighted devices that help fish overcome buoyancy and injury by releasing them at depth. These devices come in a variety of forms FLORIDA SEA GRANT PHOTO including weighted inverted hooks, lip clamp devices and weighted crates and boxes. to be a resource to a community committed “I used descending devices for the first time to preserving the future of the sport,” said Nick recently, and I’ve seen them work firsthand. Not a Haddad, Fisheries Communications Manager, single fish floated back up the entire day offshore Return ’Em Right. Return ’Em Right is a program led by fishing,” said Alexandra Spring, three-time IGFA Florida Sea Grant, University of Florida, Gulf World Record Holder. Gulf of Mexico reef fish anglers 18 years and States Marine Fisheries Commission, NOAA older are now eligible to visit the Return ’Em Right and a coalition of anglers, industry groups, website, review best release practices and receive state agencies, universities, government and a package of release gear to use on the water. The non-government organizations committed to educational review is available to all individuals maintaining healthy fish stocks and fishing access who are interested in learning best practices in the Gulf of Mexico. The project was selected by when encountering barotrauma, regardless of age, the Deepwater Horizon Open Ocean Trustee’s as part of a 2019 Restoration Plan. location or role in the fishery. “Return ’Em Right welcomes all anglers to To participate in the Return ’Em Right program participate in the program and we are excited and get your free gear, go to returnemright.org.

The beaches are buzzing, and the air is salty but most importantly the fish are chewing! In June you can expect peak performance from all the saltwater species here. From monsters of the deep like Swordfish and Grouper to fleet-footed surface fish like Wahoo and Mahi Mahi, June is a fantastic time to be a fisherman. What’s biting in June?

prevalent here in Destin and along the Gulf Coast. Did you know that the panhandle is one of the only places on earth that red snapper is so common? Take a short trip across the state to the East coast and red snapper are ummmmm a by-catch. That’s right, red snapper are easily caught from the big bend of Florida all the way to the Louisiana coast and on into Texas but here in Destin you can catch them a half mile off the beach and boat loads of them. Credit that to our amazing “wrecks to reef ” initiative and our abundant natural and artificial habitats that Destin is known for. As a guide, my favorite way to target Red Snapper is chumming them to the surface and watching them eat. Any time I get to watch a bottom dweller come out of their comfort zone of the reef and feed on the surface is a win in my book. Those that have experienced the surface frenzy will surely agree. An opportunistic, strong-willed, crowd-pleasing belle of the ball…that’s what I think of the American Red Snapper. However you like to target them, find a boat or a guide with a boat (wink wink) and have fun catching these amazing fish this season!

he journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. I’ve often said the most important thing I can do as a fisherman is take a kid fishing. Every one of us who are now absolutely obsessed with fishing were once taken by someone else for our first time. My first forays into fishing were with my dad at Anderson Pond on Eglin Air Force Base when I was probably about 3 years old. Dad would come home from work and change into the clothes he usually wore for exercising, then my two older brothers and I would follow him out to the compost pile and dig worms, which was probably just as exciting as the fishing. After we’d captured enough bait, we’d all pile into his white Chevy S10, single cab stick shift and hit the road with a couple of cane poles hanging out of the bed. This was the late 80s, there were no car seats, but we did double buckle. I don’t recall us ever catching anything worth keeping but I remember loving every minute of it. This is all odd, considering my dad isn’t really a fisherman and never really was. In fact, now that I’m a father with little boys of my own I’m pretty sure my dad was roped into these fishing trips by my stay-at-home-mom of 4 who probably was at her wit’s end by 4 p.m. and my dad was doing his best to keep us all alive long enough to make it to bed safely. Either way, it had a lasting impression on me, and for better or worse it stuck in my brain as the only right way for me to live. I recently took my youngest boy to the mountains of West Virginia to do a little fishing. He’s young, so I kept the trip short. Three days seemed

about as much time away from Momma as I figured he’d be able to stand. Despite intellectually knowing this wouldn’t be a sack ‘em up sort of trip with 10 100+ fish days, I couldn’t help but being in perpetual dream state from the moment I’d booked the plane tickets. I’d visualize beefy Brookies on the 11 rise to meet my dry or swinging meat for buttery Browns the size of submarines. I hoped we might be on the stream before day broke over the mountain tops 12 and we’d lay witness to the morning caddis mixing in with the March Browns coming off the water. I’m here to tell you our trips was nothing of the sort. 13 We did have a decent go at it on the first morning, bringing a few stocker Rainbows to hand on dries despite not making it to the river before 9 a.m. 14 However, around mid-morning the rocks started to heat up and we were surrounded by dozens of water snakes. An anomaly I labeled as a pleasant 15 surprise and an interesting happenstance; however, my son did not share my delight and we had to call our day short. The next two days were spent trying 16 to convince him that every square inch of the Wild and Wonderful wasn’t snake infested, and that it might be safe to venture out into the wilderness 17a once more. We did a fun little hike to a waterfall, at which I did make couple cast, and brought 3 or 4 Native Brookies to hand. Our last day I 18 resigned that perhaps my son wouldn’t grow to be the fishing buddy I hoped he would and was only able to coax him outside with a football. We grabbed a sandwich and went to the park down by a river not especially known for19 its fishing. After throwing the pigskin around a bit a fellow and his wife came by holding some rods and I politely asked how they’d done, as one does.20 He gave us a brief rundown on their morning and turns out they’d caught a few fish. Before I realized what was happening my son was putting the ball in21 the car and unloading his gear from the trunk. He spent the next couple hours 22 standing knee deep in the river running the blades off his Mepp’s spinner and setting hard like Bill Dance into every rock he bumped against. We ended up throwing the football some more before the sunset and on the 23 way home he let me know how much he liked fishing. 24 A trickle down a rock eventually becomes part of the ocean and I guess whether you’re just trying to give mom a break or break in your new St. 25of Croix, if you’re bringing kids fishing you’ve got to be ready to not do a lot fishing. Bring swim trunks, a mask and snorkel, a football, and lots of snacks. 26 If you make it fun, they’ll keep coming back and if you’re not careful they may grow up to be a fishing guide.

o longer are the days of…..if it pees, it is good. The modern four stroke engines need water to cool the exhaust system. Four strokes are, in most cases, miniature car motors. Car motors have their exhaust exiting through steel and cast iron exhaust systems. All four strokes outboard motors do not have the luxury of using steel or cast iron. They are made with aluminum to not only save weight, but to help with corrosion. Your motor has thermostats to keep water in the block for cooling. The excess water encapsulates around the exhaust housing to cool the aluminum. It is very important that you change your water pump every 100 hours or every year. The downside of not changing it is the aluminum gets very hot and starts to corrode. This problem can occur regardless of outboard manufacturer.

6 THE panhandle

june 2022

Always change your water pump every 100 hours or yearly.

Just because the motor is peeing doesn’t mean it has enough water to cool the exhaust. A lot of manufacturers of four strokes bypass the block to the water outlet, just so you know the water pump is working. However, it doesn’t show if it has adequate flow. A good quality OEM part will expand the life of your motor. Regular maintenance on the water system is crucial. Water pumps are softer than older two strokes, so it can generate more pressure. They tend to wear quicker, which causes loss of water pressure.

Fishing Forecast with Capt. matt miller Miller Fishing Company 850-501-5016 • www.millerfishingcharters.com

T

he yearly American Red Snapper season- it’s finally here! This season is what most of Florida and other states along the Gulf of Mexico live for. There are many ways to catch these fish. While many fishermen use the traditional bottom fishing technique, my favorite way is a little different. We pull up to our spot (usually not deeper than 100ft.) and set our MinnKota trolling motor to where we sit perfectly right over the spot or up current of it (depending on how fast the current is moving). Once we are set, we put out a chum bag or two (one on each side of the boat). After creating a heavy chum slick with those bags of chum, we do a little extra chumming with cut Spanish sardines. Once we start marking fish moving higher in the water column, we take a fly line style setup (just a leader and a circle hook) and hide the hook inside of a chunk of sardine. Pitch the bait up current so by the time your line is straight up and down next to the boat it is between 10-15ft under the boat. That zone is the strike zone in this instance. Once you catch a few like that, take a rod with a jig on it and pitch it in letting it sink to the bottom. You never know what you might catch since you’ve got all the snapper and other

Fishing

fast species off the bottom and up towards the top of the water. We catch gag grouper, Amberjack, scamp & all types of stuff while doing this. “Chum and they will come” as my pawpaw always used to tell me growing up. And just like clockwork they do! It’s not just red snapper you catch while doing this. Mangroves, triggers, bar jacks, mackerel, cobia - all kinds of fish come up in the slick to see what the commotion is all about! We usually are rigged up with 40-80lb fluorocarbon, a 5-7/0 size circle hook, 50-80lb braid, and a 5000 to 14000 sized spinning reel. The rods always vary, 6 to 8ft - 30 to 80lb class. The lighter the tackle, the more fun you’ll have! As always till next time, tight lines and thanks for reading!

Greetings Gulf Coast Anglers!

T

his month we have something a little different from the guys over at PFC. Instead of a June fishing forecast they are going to share one of their most memorable catches yet.

Enjoy! The biggest and baddest of the grouper family. In Pensacola, Florida these guys aren’t so well known for being caught because you cannot harvest them, and they are so tough to bring up. These fish are a federally protected species, and harvest is strictly forbidden. Due to the sheer size of these 100+ pound grouper, even pulling them out of the water is not advised since doing so will crush their skeletal system often killing them, which is considered harvesting. Although you cannot harvest these guys, the battle they put up is one you won’t forget. They are truly a

trophy fish and will take your breath away when/ if u can get them up. When we target them on a charter, we use large circle hooks to ensure a safe release. Very heavy tackle is deployed for this type of fishing and is not for the faint of heart. When a 200 lb. monster sucks the bait in, it’s everything the angler can do to stay in the boat! The fight is intense at first but gets easier as the fish loses sight of the wreck. After getting them boat side, pictures are taken, and the hooks quickly removed, all while the fish is still in the water. So, give us a call at Pensacola fishing charters to see if you have what it takes on a fish of a lifetime!!!! That’s all for now anglers! Until next month, keep those lines tight!!

ell, it’s been a good run, but we are coming to the end of surf fishing as we know it. That’s right folks; we had a few great fishing months, but June is upon us, and you know what that means…JUNE GRASS! Called June Grass by locals, it’s a form of algae, and although it makes fishing the surf near impossible, it’s a vital component of our ecosystem. For those that don’t know what I’m talking about, June Grass is the green, dried up, smelly clumps of algae you see washed up on the beaches during June and July along the panhandle. However, this is a healthy form of algae, not to be confused with red tide, which happens to be another form of algae bloom that can cause respiratory issues in humans. June Grass provides a food source for marine creatures such as crabs, shorebirds, and dune mice. Yes, we have dune mice along the beaches; look them up. They are unique creatures. However, fear not; I will provide you with a few alternatives, so you don’t have to miss out on summertime fishing.

Saltwater Thoughts

J

une. I hate June. It is officially the summer, and here we go with some fun fishing time ahead. At least, that is what I keep telling myself in my head. In reality, I go right to the knowledge of what June brings. Hurricanes, grass, traffic, grass, hot & humid days, grass, and grass. Did I mention grass? Oh, I did? Yeah, there will be grass. In an article from nwfdailynews.com, Heather Osbourne writes: *"June grass, an algal bloom, migrates from the center of the Gulf of Mexico and works its way inland when water temperatures rise. Sporadic pockets of the algae can be spotted as early as June and usually last until October before the water temperature cools." I know that if you're a surf angler, you hate the stuff. We all do! As soon as you cast your line, it's as if the grass comes running to give it a death squeezing hug that will not allow you to fish. The good news is that it isn't always constant, and it does come in pockets and areas. The trick I had to learn the hard way last year was to follow many social media groups and have three beaches in mind when planning my surf fishing. A huge advantage to living in Navarre is that it allows me to be in the middle of several different beaches I can run to. I'll typically start at Marine Park at Navarre beach and check out things close to the pier. Parking is easy, and the walk to the water is simple. I might head to the

10 THE panhandle

june 2022

Option 1: Search for pockets of clean water. This is probably the most frustrating option because it requires driving and testing different water accesses. We are dealing with algae, and this algae requires a nutrientrich environment to grow and thrive. Therefore, areas close to freshwater runoff will hold more algae. Additionally, the algae seem to be worse after periods of heavy rain. Also of note, specific access points seem to hold algae longer. That’s why it’s essential to drive and scout several locations, and you may get lucky and find one that is fishable. Option 2: Try your hand at pier fishing. June and July can be a great time to fish the local piers. Spanish and King mackerel can be caught as well as tarpon. That’s correct; tarpon are migratory fish that make their appearance along the gulf coast during the summer months. In my opinion, using a medium-heavy to heavy rod paired with a 7000 or better spinning reel will get the job done. Throwing large swimbaits will usually entice them to eat. I prefer an 8” white Hogy bait; this soft plastic catches a lot of fish during the summer. Option 3: Target the inshore slam; speckled trout, redfish, and flounder. This time of year, the shallow grass flats are on fire with speckled trout, redfish, and flounder. You’ll have to wade through the pinfish because they are thick. Especially if using live shrimp under a popping cork, you will go through some bait. I like to use soft plastics in this type of fishing as well. It is very versatile; you can use it under a cork or by itself. You can even use it behind a topwater lure. This tip came from Capt. Bill Lipscomb of E-6 Inshore Fishing Adventures. Remove the back hook, and tie on a short leader with the jig head. Work the topwater bait as you usually would. The jig will rise and fall erratically, enticing a strike. We call it the #thebillrig. Bottomline: June grass doesn’t mean the end of shore fishing. There are alternatives; you just need to step out of your comfort zone. After all, that’s what makes us better anglers, right? Until next month folks, may your lines be tight, and coolers be full!

east and start down outside the designated swimming area if it's good. I'm heading West to Portofino/Fort Pickens if it's terrible. The same plan of action when arriving. I'm making a LONG run to the east towards the Okaloosa Island area if those are bad. If it's a no-go, I'm grabbing Parlor donuts and heading home (likely get in my kayak and head inshore). Since we are talking about going inshore, there are some great options to get after some fishing. I'd be remiss if I didn't have a safety brief to mention. The summer brings the sun within two feet of Florida for some reason, so the heat will be extreme. Add in the humidity, and it can feel like you're an egg in a frying pan. Stay hydrated (water, not alcohol) and apply that sunscreen liberally. Get in some shade and go with a buddy. It is more fun fishing with a friend, and you can cover each other in an emergency. Ok, off my soapbox. With hot temperatures, remember that the fish will be lethargic as well. Just like winter, if the water temps are hot, they will be trying to hold onto that energy and feed only when they are hungry. While frustrating, it doesn't mean you can't catch them! Patience and persistence will pay off. Have a great month out there, and I hope you see your PB/PR. Go forth and do good things!

t’s June here on the Emerald Coast and the fishing is finally starting to heat up after a cold winter. The Red fish and speckled trout can be found on the grass flats. Each day, more bait balls are starting to show up so have that cast net ready! Red fish seem to love shrimp all year long but during the warmer months they like to feast on pinfish, croakers and greenies. The Spanish bite has been great lately and they are starting to move into the bay as the temps increase. They typically like feasting early morning and later in the afternoons. Black drum can be found near the bridge pilings, and they like to feast on cut blue crab. Get ready for a real battle with these drums! Mangrove snapper are showing up around the bridge pilings and sea walls as well. The best way to locate them

is by looking for diving birds. When you see that, there is always fish lurking below. If you're looking for a fun fight while fishing, the Jack Crevalle are schooling all throughout the bays here in Walton County. Red snapper season for us state water guys starts June 17th! We are all definitely looking forward to snapper season. We like to get out there early and catch some cigar minnows as well as pinfish since the snapper love them. Kings have started making their appearance as well as the Mahi. Typically, you can snag their attention by trolling using live cigar minnows. Fishing season 2022 is here!!

chool is out and the treasured red snapper is in. Offshore 6:30 7:02 charter captains and anglers 6:31 7:01 favorite time of year. The month 6:31 7:00 client heartbreak is over and replaced 6:32 6:58 with smiles and watering mouths because red snappers are headed 6:32 6:57 back to the docks. Snapper can be 6:33 6:56 targeted in waters from 40-250ft 6:33 6:54 using many techniques. The local 6:34 6:53 favorite is a Carolina rig with 1-16oz 6:34 6:52 lead (depending on depth and 6:35 6:51 current), 3-6ft leader (fluorocarbon can help when the bite is slow), 3/06:35 6:49 12/0 circle hooks, baited with live pinfish, grunts, and cigar minnows. 6:36 6:48 Frozen baits such as squid, cigar minnow, sardines, and mackerel also 6:37 work 6:47well when live baits run out or are not available. We never leave the 6:37 dock 6:46without it. Anglers can also expect to find a great grouper bite this 6:38 time 6:44of year. Groupers are caught with the heavier rigs and larger baits 6:38 used 6:43for snapper. While targeting groupers jigging the bottom with a slow 6:39 pitch 6:42or vertical jig has been proven to be a very productive method that’s more popular every year. Increasing water temperatures signal 6:39 becoming 6:41 return of another regional favorite, the king mackerel. King mackerel 6:40 the6:39 consistently found this time of year on near shore wrecks and bottom 6:41 are6:38 where baitfish congregate. Effective techniques for King Mackerel include 6:41 6:37 slow trolling large hard tails on weighted and unweighted stinger rigs, trolling duster rigs with dead cigar minnows, and diving plugs such as Rapala stretch 30’s. While caught on the reefs and wrecks year-round, June is a great time to target vermillion snapper. Vermilion Snapper or locally called B-liners are consistently caught while snapper / grouper fishing with chicken rigs made of 50-60lb leader, 2/0-3/0 circle hooks, and baited with small pieces of squid or cut bait. Even though red snapper steals the spotlight of June the many species of the bays and backwater must not be overlooked. This time of year can be very rewarding to anglers targeting Redfish, Speckled Sea trout, and Spanish mackerel. Redfish and trout are consistently found on the flats and bayous and are targeted with an array of artificial lures and live baits. Fishing topwater plugs can be phenomenal this time of year especially with high falling tides in the early mornings or late evenings. Also, fishing live baits such as ly’s, finger mullet, and pin fish under a popping cork or on a flatline is a go to most days. Maybe the best part of the inshore fishing this time of year is the arrival of the massive bull reds in the passes and deepwater bridges near passes. These large bull reds are targeted on Carolina rigs with live pinfish and crabs. Though arriving in March and April Spanish mackerel continue to fill the bay and anglers will find it common to catch their limits trolling weighted and unweighted straw rigs and silver spoons. Larger Spanish (axe handles) can be caught flatlining live baits such as ly’s around passes deep points, and range markers. 6:29

DEALING WITH

HIGH WINDS INSHORE By Capt. Michael Okruhlik

PHOTO COURTESY OF KNOCKIN TAIL LURES

he wind was unrelenting this spring. It kept me off the water more than I prefer. I have high hopes it will subside by the time this article is published, but if not, here is an approach that saved the day more than once this spring. If you find yourself facing high winds, consider the following. Safety is always No. 1 on the water, so let’s keep that in the forefront as you read. On windy days, the majority of the time, I seek shelter and fish the lee shoreline. First and foremost, it is the most comfortable place to fish, and the safest depending on wind velocity. Unfortunately, the fish don’t always spend their time feeding looking for a protected and calm area. Think about it like this, turbid water can disorient smaller bait fish easier than it will the larger gamefish we all seek. Therefore, the windward shore is at times where the fish will feed more frequently. For one, it is simply an easier meal. Secondly, the wind current can blow and congregate smaller fish in that area, shoreline or cove. With the why out of the way, here is how I fished this approach on a recent trip. The cove I describe opens to the bay on the west, has two drains on the north and east, and I had a southeast wind of 15 to 20 knots. I started with the comfortable approach and one that, in general, made the most sense. I waded the protected shore and fished in front of the two

drains. The water color was clean, and there was some bait tight to the shoreline in very skinny water. For all practical purposes, it was too skinny to fish and grassy. After thoroughly working the lee shore and drains without a bite, I rounded the curve and focused my attention on the windward, dirty north shore. Upon approach, I noticed the bait was farther out than it had been on the lee shore. This was key, because it was hovering in a fishable depth. My weedless rattling paddletail drew attention to my lure in this dirty turbid water. After making several cast directly downwind to the bank, I quickly determined the distance from the shore where the water was deep enough to not foul my hook. Once I knew the zone, I angled my cast at 45 degrees from the bank. This allowed me to fish somewhat parallel to the shore and keep my lure in the bait zone. Although it was less comfortable casting across the wind with waves crashing me from behind in muddy water, this saved the day and is where all the reds and trout were caught. Remember, when fishing the windward shore, be mindful of where you anchor your vessel and keep safety first. Capt.

Summer-Long, Statewide Fishing Competition Launches Memorial Day Weekend

C

CA Florida, the state’s leading organization dedicated to marine fisheries conservation, education and advocacy, will launch the eighth-annual West Marine CCA Florida STAR competition presented by Yamaha on May 28. The summer-long event invites anglers and nonanglers to participate and win their share of prizes valued at almost $500,000, including boats, motors, scholarships and more. Launched in 2015, STAR focuses on conservation with its technology-based, catchphoto-release format. STAR’s dedicated smartphone app promotes proper handling of species and allows participants to upload competition photos, eliminating the requirement to harvest or capture and transport fish. CCA Florida also uses data collected from the app to educate the public on the importance of protecting Florida’s marine resources. This important data is also available to other conservation organizations and universities for use in their studies on conservation, habitat and stock assessments. “In the past seven years, it’s been amazing to see STAR participants support conservation by embracing the catch-photo format and picking up garbage during the annual competition,” CCA Florida STAR Director Leiza Fitzgerald said. “Even more exciting is awarding more than $2.1 million in prizes, with $700,000 specifically awarded in

youth scholarships, to the thousands of statewide STAR registrants.” The 2022 STAR competition has 17 divisions targeting 12 inshore and offshore species plus the cleanup of trash. STAR’s signature Tagged Redfish Division offers winners the choice of a Contender Boats 22 Sport, Pathfinder Boats 2200 TRS or Spyder Boats Vapor 19FX, all powered by Yamaha Outboards. In addition, this year’s competition is debuting the Alta Equipment Super STAR Tagged Redfish prize, which if caught, will give the winner $50,000. The two winning youth anglers in the signature division can also win new boats powered with Yamaha Outboards, trailers, Minn Kota trolling motors and Humminbird electronics. The best opportunity to catch this year’s tagged redfish will be in Brevard, Citrus and Charlotte Counties, STAR’s 2022 Destination Counties which each have eight tagged redfish in their coastal waters. One of the newest divisions, the Tigress Outriggers and Gear Tagged Dolphin Division offers one winner a $10,000 cash prize. The first STAR registrant and CCA Florida member who catches a tagged dolphin, released in the coastal waters of Florida for STAR by the Dolphin Research program implemented by the Beyond Our Shores foundation, will win. STAR is a family-friendly competition, and

CCA Florida youth members (ages 6 to 17) can participate for free. Kids are encouraged to submit entries in the Youth Scholarship Division presented by Realtree Fishing for an opportunity to win one of 12 scholarships totaling $100,000. Other divisions include ladies, kayak, conservation, guides and more. Since most division winners are determined by a random drawing, it is not about catching the biggest fish, any size fish can win. Registration is open and ends Sept. 5. To register for STAR 2022 or receive additional information on divisions, prizes and more, visit ccaflstar.com or Facebook.

By Capt. Dave Lear

ne of the most popular events of the Gulf Coast big-game tournament circuit is celebrating 20 years of exciting, high-stakes competition. The 20th annual Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic is set to get underway June 22 and continue through June 26 at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. This year’s platinum anniversary will showcase some of the sport’s top boats vying for million-dollar cash prizes. The Wind Creek Casino & Hotel-Atmore is the 2022 presenting sponsor. “We are celebrating 20 years of the Classic in style,” said Tournament Director Jason Draughn. “I’d like to welcome back all our valued contestants and Wind Creek, our presenting sponsor. I’d also like to welcome our two new tournament partners, MarineMax/Grady-White and Pelagic, Jack Daniels and SeaKeeper as new sponsors and Krueger, Fosdyck & Associates/Merrill Lynch once again, along with our fantastic line-up of other sponsors and supporters. We couldn’t have had this much fun for 20 years without every one of them!” Participants will be competing for awards and more than two million dollars in cash with blue marlin the top prize. Eligible fish must be at least 110 inches long to qualify. That minimum is measured from the tip of the fish’s lower jaw to the fork of the tail. Qualifiers typically average 500 pounds or heavier. In addition to the blue marlin weight category, smaller blues, white marlin, sailfish and spearfish that are successfully released earn points in the competitive release division. Releases are verified by video footage. Yellowfin and bigeye tuna, wahoo and dolphin are scored one point per pound. The ECBC attracts multi-million dollar sport-fishing yachts from across the Gulf of Mexico as well as the southeastern United States. Fishing begins after Thursday’s noon start from the Destin Pass and concludes Saturday afternoon. Eligible fish are weighed Friday and Saturday evenings at the Baytowne Marina. Viewing is free and open to the public. Hancock Whitney Bank is sponsoring the ECBC Golf Scramble, which is open to participants and sponsors. Final details are in the works. This year, entries made at the kick-off on June 22 will be charged a late fee, so early registration is recommended.

hanges to Florida’s redfish management took another step forward at the May meeting of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Staff will now continue gathering input on the proposed rules and return to the commission for a Final Rule Hearing later this year. The proposed rule changes would:

• Modify the redfish management regions into nine regions, each smaller than the current three redfish management zones. • Prohibit captain and crew from retaining a bag limit when on a for-hire trip. • Reduce the off-the-water transport limit from six to four fish per person. • Increase the bag limit for the Big Bend region from one to two fish per person. • Reduce the eight-fish vessel limit in each of the proposed management regions: • Panhandle, Big Bend, Northeast: four fish. • Tampa Bay, Sarasota Bay, Charlotte Harbor, Southwest, Southeast: two fish. • Allow only catch-and-release fishing for redfish in the Indian River Lagoon region. “With this new management approach, this agency is committed to continuing to work with our partners and stakeholders in finding solutions for redfish,” said FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto. According to FWC, the modification of redfish management regions and regulations, as part of the new management approach, will better capture regional differences and improve angler satisfaction.

everal regulations changes for black crappie fishing in Florida are moving ahead after gaining approval at the May meeting of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). The commission unanimously approved proposed regulations changes to size and/or bag limits for black crappie on specific Florida waterbodies. A final hearing will be held at a future meeting after collection of public input. Here are the proposed changes: • Remove the 12” minimum length limit on Lake Jackson (Osceola County). • Remove specific size and bag limits on the following Fish Management Areas (they will return to statewide regulations of 25 fish daily bag limit and no minimum size limit): • Montgomery Lake • Watertown Lake • Suwannee Lake • Hardee County Park • Bobby Hicks Park Pond • Gadsden Park Pond • Manatee Lake •Largo Central Park Nature Preserve

“Anglers fish for specks (black crappie) when they want to have a fish fry,” said FWC Commissioner Gary Lester. “Black crappie remains a popular target for anglers, and we commend staff ’s dedication to ensuring crappie fisheries thrive in Florida.” Staff completed a Black Crappie Management Plan in 2019 that called for a comprehensive review of black crappie regulations. Staff reviewed the biological aspects of regulations and gathered stakeholder input. While many anglers asked for a statewide minimum length limit, biological data indicated such a regulation would not improve most fisheries across the state and would unnecessarily restrict angler harvest opportunities. Therefore, no statewide length limit was proposed.

WORLD RECORD REDBREAST?

L

ester Roberts, of Blackshear, Ga., was slinging a crankbait during a bass tournament on south Georgia’s Satilla River when he came tight on what could be a tie for the world record for redbreast sunfish. The current IGFA all-tackle world record for the species is a Florida fish, caught by Alvin Buchanan from the Suwannee River in 1984. Both big redbreasts weighed 1 pound, 12 ounces, which is an impressive individual for a species that rarely grows to even a pound. Roberts caught his record fish on May 7 from a stretch of river near Folkston, Ga. It measured 11 3/8 inches in length and beat out the previous Georgia state record by an ounce. The previous record, which had stood since 1998, weighed 1 pound, 11 ounces. Redbreast sunfish are a species that prefer to live in rivers and streams. They are native to the eastern United States. Their bellies are yellow to orangered or crimson red. Their heads have blue or blue-green stripes. In recent years Georgia’s Wildlife Resources Division has been working to save habitat for redbreast on the Satilla. The introduction of invasive and highly predatory flathead catfish is a threat to the native fish species. If left unchecked, flatheads could decimate sunfish populations in one of the world’s best redbreast rivers. See more record fish at www.coastalanglermag.com.

Mark Your Calendars for the 2022 Greater Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament!

L

ong considered the granddaddy of all kingfish tournaments, the 42nd year of the Greater Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament (GJKT) is slated for July 22-23 out of Jacksonville, Fla.’s Jim King Park at the confluence of Sisters Creek and the St. Johns River. Started by local businessmen in 1980, the GJKT has spawned the interest of generations of anglers, and the inaugural event was held in July of 1981. Out of its success, Jacksonville Marine Charities was born and serves as the operating arm of the GJKT. Proceeds from the event will support marine science research, preservation and education. To date, well over $400,000 have supported these ventures. Traditionally the tournament draws thousands of spectators, who enjoy the daily events and the parade of boats arriving to weigh their catch. This is as close to stadium spectating as it gets, because boats of all sizes and almost every make will make their way to weigh in. It’s great to root for the underdogs in the small boats. There will also be good food and plenty of drinks in the Liar’s Tent as well as entertainment. And don’t forget the Boatique, where you can purchase some very nice tournament shirts. Since it’s inception, the GJKT has been a multi-day event, but with the

uncertainty of fuel prices, as well as a sputtering economy, the board of directors of the GJKT has adopted a format change. This year we have moved the tournament fishing days to Friday and Saturday. Friday will be the General Tournament Day. That’s right, it is a one-day general tournament day. Anglers may weigh in two of their biggest fish and the Ladies can weigh a Lady Angler fish. The Largest Kingfish and Largest Aggregate places, as well as Largest Ladies will all come from that one day of fishing. Saturday is dedicated to the Kids Jr. Angler Tournament, and fishing will end at 2 p.m. on Saturday. All awards will be Saturday evening. These changes will save you the whole second day of expenses that normally come with tournament week, such as lodging, fuel, bait, etc., as well as saving you from using up vacation days from work. The tournament payout will still be the same! Anglers still fish for the best prize in the game, a 25-foot Contender with twin Yamaha 150s, rigged out and valued at over $160,000. Also new this year, the tournament will pay down to 20 places in Big Fish and 20 places in Aggregate as well as 10 places for Ladies! The rewards are bigger than ever, and you’ll save the added expense and wear and tear of that second day. So do your homework and be ready for game day! The GJKT looks forward to having a great event. For more information, please visit kingfishtournament.com

CASTING FAR FROM SHORE: THE DYNAMICS OF LONG DISTANCE LURES PATRICK SEBILE

If you read my column last month, I introduced the topic of true long-distance lures. This month, I’m going to present the elements of a lure that allow it to be cast a long way. I hope this helps you select lures that achieve excellent distance and action. Shape: A lure that’s built for distance is elongated so that the widest diameter or width is no more than a quarter of the lure length. Width adds air resistance, which results in lost momentum and poorer performance. On the other hand, counter to what some may think, very slim lures are also not the best. Unless most of the weight is at the very end of the tail, a super slim lure will These see-through pencil lures illustrate tumble with air resistance weight placement for an optimized on a cast, which has balance of casting distance and fishing a negative effect on action. They also demonstrate proper distance. ratios between length and width. The longest distance lures have their widest diameter at a fifth and a third of the length of the lure, from the tail. Buoyancy: There is no doubt that sinking lures cast farther than floating lures with a similar shape. Within reason, the more dense a lure is, the farther it will fly. Depending on the brand, these can be called “Super Long Distance,” “Bullet” or “Rocket” type lures. Unless you specifically want a topwater presentation, you want a lure that sinks at rest if you’re after distance. Weight Position: To impart the most momentum to a lure in the casting movement, the majority of weight should be located between the tail and a third of the length from the tail. Total Weight: This one depends on angler preference as well as the rod being used. There are situations when light tackle is called for. However, for pure distance, regardless of a lure’s dimensions, there’s a weight range between 1.5 and 4 ounces for most anglers and most rods to deliver the most efficient casts. That can be narrowed down to a sweet spot of 2.5 to 3 ounces in most cases. Only trial and error will dial in what works best for you and your needs. Appendages: The denser the lure, the better it is for the distance. The catch is, high density may impact swimming action. The best lures offer the best of both worlds. Appendages such as side wings provide lift in the water when a lure is retrieved, which provides action without sacrificing casting distance. Next month, we’ll speak about types of long distance lures. Legendary angler Patrick Sebile is a world record holder and an award-winning designer of innovative lures and fishing gear.

MITZI SKIFF:

the marketplace. Mitzi Skiff became the brand for skinny-water anglers who value simplicity and functionality. A Mitzi does everything the pricier skiffs do, yet they are affordable enough for any angler to own and operate. About 30 years later, Mitzi has expanded to offer 15’, 16’ and 17’ skiffs that all perform the purposes of the original design exceptionally well. Continued innovation has made Mitzi a boat other builders imitate, and they still come at a significantly lower price point than the competition. The 17’ and the 17’ Tournament have become the brand’s hottest sellers. “The 15’ took the micro-skiff market by storm,” said Brad Grubbs, who owns and manufactures Mitzi Skiffs in North Carolina. “Since then, the brand has sort of evolved toward the 17’, which works just fine as a multi-purpose boat. It really is a very nice boat, notwithstanding the price point.” The Mitzi Skiff 17’ is a stripped-down and customizable version of the 17’ Tournament, which comes with the options Grubbs said most of his fishing customers were asking for. Both boats draft just 7 inches loaded, they pole easily, they pole straight, and they reach speeds into the 40s with a 60 hp engine. While the 15’ is a one or two-man boat that’s at-home on the flats, the 17’ can fish three people and it’s got better range. The 17’s primary purpose is still as a flats boat, yet it also doubles admirably as bay boat. “It’s not just a flats boats; it’s a little bit of an open water boat, too,” Grubbs said. The 17’ features a modified V-hull with an 11-degree deadrise at transom. There’s no hull slap, and rolled gunnels knock down spray for an exceptionally dry ride. They are built for light weight to run shallow, yet they are solid and durable to stand up to long years of heavy use. From hideaway pushpole holders to flush-mount hardware, Mitzi has obviously put some thought into making decks clean and fishable for fly anglers. Large, clean and stable casting decks are something Mitzi has become known for. “Keep it simple stupid, and if it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” Grubbs quipped. f you’re a shallow-water angler, you might already know the story behind the legendary Mitzi Skiff. In the mid-1990s, Tom Mitzlaff started toying For nearly three decades, Mitzi has built skiffs for anglers more interested in with ideas to build a boat for his own use. There was nothing affordable fishing than in spending a lot of money. It’s a philosophy that works. on the market with the shallow draft, clean layout and quiet maneuverability Mitzi Skiff boats are available exclusively through select dealers. needed for fly fishing the flats. So, Mitzlaff built the original 15-foot Mitzi Skiff. For more on Mitzi Skiffs, go to www.mitziskiffs.com. It didn’t take long for anglers to take notice, and that boat revolutionized

CHOOSE FIBERGLASS PONTOON HULLS FOR THE BEST BOAT RIDE EVER StyleCraft Boats Makes Proprietary Fiberglass Pontoon Hulls

A

luminum has dominated the platform boat industry for years, until now. Move over aluminum, fiberglass pontoon hulls are the way to go for so many reasons. StyleCraft Boats creates multiple versions of the popular pontoon boat, all based on proprietary fiberglass pontoons with a racing hull design. The advantages of fiberglass over aluminum are great for the boat owner. Starting with the design, StyleCraft Boats uses A&M Manufacturing fiberglass pontoon hulls with a successful track record of a quarter century. The unique design is not round but flat on the bottom. This produces a very shallow-running boat with a draft of just 8 to 10 inches. The flat bottom pontoon also enhances the boat’s performance. Getting on a plane is much quicker, and the boat quietly glides across the water with less friction. As a result, less engine horsepower is needed. Less horsepower means less fuel demand. With today’s gasoline prices, this is a huge plus. Ever see an aluminum hull with welding scars that weaken the aluminum, bent fins or creased sides? The durability of fiberglass eliminates these issues. The fiberglass on a StyleCraft Boat is 1/2 inch thick, with much more body than aluminum of equivalent weight. StyleCraft Boats can take the abuse and mishaps with little to no harm. And should the boat have an accident, the fiberglass can be repaired back to new condition. No one enjoys boat maintenance, and fiberglass pontoon hulls are extremely user friendly. The very nature of aluminum causes electrolysis in saltwater, which deteriorates from corrosion on the hull surface in a big way. Not so with fiberglass. StyleCraft even coats the bottom of the pontoons with a special “SharkSkin” paint layer to reduce biological

growth of both plants and animals such as algae and barnacles. StyleCraft fiberglass pontoons always look clean, sleek and higher end. So, what’s it going to be? The smart STYLECRAFT BOATS.COM choice is fiberglass pontoon hulls from 1-855-STYLECRAFT StyleCraft Boats for that next boat purchase.

PARKIT360°:

BUILDING THE WORLD’S MOST ADVANCED TRAILER DOLLY

S

uccess stories are often driven by individuals with the ingenuity and work ethic to recognize and fill a need in the marketplace. The longevity of a dream results from a commitment to quality and continued innovation. Parkit360° is such a story. In 2009, when founder Steve Houle brought his electric trailer dollies to market, it was the culmination of years working to fill a niche need. About a decade later, with business booming, Steve has passed down the same work ethic and problem-solving spirit to his son Stefan Houle, who now manages the company and continues to produce the planet’s most advanced trailer dollies for happy customers worldwide. None of this happened overnight. Steve is a problem solver and the son of a millwright. He grew up around a machine shop using his mind, hands and machines to build things. He credits his father for instilling in him work ethic as well as the business sense to turn good ideas into marketable solutions. “I’ve always enjoyed building solutions to problems I saw around me,” Steve said. “Being able to turn this hobby of mine into a career has been hands down the greatest experience of my life.” Years ago, a problem manifested itself in dramatic fashion when Steve and his wife purchased a 27-foot cabin cruiser. On their maiden voyage, the wind blew them into another boat while maneuvering out of the docks. That costly mishap set Steve on a career path devising tools to maneuver large objects safely in small spaces. “The same week, out of pure necessity, I developed my own bow thruster, spending countless days testing, developing, and finally bringing this product to the market,” he said. “We received great feedback from the release.” That bow thruster became Sideshift, which revolutionized bow and stern thruster technology to make docking large boats easier. But Steve didn’t stop there. “Backing a trailer into a tight spot can be the most frustrating experience in the world. I know firsthand,” Steve said. “I found this gap in the market and I aimed to do my best to fill it.” Thus, Parkit360° was born. Steve started small, collecting feedback from RV enthusiasts and boaters and building prototype trailer dollies in his garage shop. “My number one priority was to help individuals trying to fit their boats or RVs into a small spot in their garage or yard,” he said. After seven prototypes, Steve finally built a product he was satisfied with. He began selling units one-off on ebay. Since then, Parkit360° has grown along with its reputation as a superior product. The company now

occupies a 12,000 square foot facility with numerous employees building thousands of units per year. And as the passion for a product passes on to the next generation, Stefan is tasked with continued improvement to trailer dollies that are already more powerful, more versatile and easier to use than anything else on the market.
