On the Boat, Part II

by karstopo on 01-08-2018 at 04:00 AM
Im enjoying these boat excursions lately with my buddy Rick. Im almost always fishing out of a kayak in the saltwater, so fishing from a 22 center console is a nice change of pace.

Weve had a week, a few days of cold for us weather. Nights dipped into the 20s, 24 briefly was the bottom at my house and there were a couple of days where the temperature never cracked 40 sandwiched between a couple that hovered around the mid forties.

All that unusual cold and the

Hybrid Vigor

Or otherwise known as heterosis.

heterosis
[het-uh-roh-sis]
the increase in growth, size, fecundity, function, yield, or other characters in hybrids over those of the parents.

Normally, this term is applied to organisms, plants and animals that have some desired or superior qualities over their parents. Corn that has higher yields, better drought tolerance or livestock with better disease resistance, things like that.

Torn Between the Waters

by karstopo on 12-20-2017 at 01:00 PM
I have been, at least for the last 11-12 years, all about the inshore saltwater scene first with lures and plugs and then later fly tackle. The saltwater set my heart ablaze when I lived at Surfside Beach for three years starting back in 2006. I could and frequently did walk out either front or back door, down the stairs, take a right and 75 yards of dragging a kayak across the packed sand, I was in prime redfish habitat. Or I could and frequently did take a left and 5 blocks later, I was on the

Rivers Change Day by Day

by karstopo on 11-15-2017 at 01:07 PM
Where I live there are a wide variety of saltwater fish haunts. Within 30 minutes of my house, I could be slinging flies in a marsh, bay, pass, harbor, river, creek, you get the idea. Last weekend, it was a river I found myself in. See, the day before, my good buddy went out on this same stream and jumped a couple of 3-4 foot Tarpon, caught a 4 pound snook, all along with racking up several stud speckled trout in the 4-5pound range and a couple of beefy redfish. Where do I sign up for action like

The Battle Continues

by karstopo on 10-25-2017 at 08:19 PM
So I thought I knew what I was doing. Today looked like lay up, slam dunk, easy peasy fishing. It's October, prime time, and the water was low. The area a redfish could call home suddenly shrunk by tens of thousands of acres because the water got low thanks to a westerly wind. I stacked the deck by going to a reliable low water spot.

Things started out better than okay. Some nice guy with a good spirit was at the launch fishing and crabbing and enjoying the chamber of commerce weather.
