Fishing

  • There’s an off the beaten track, very special place in Florida that provides endless opportunities for every type of fishing imaginable: surfcasting; fly-fishing in saltwater and freshwater; back-bay fishing; kayak fishing and of course, deep-sea fishing.

  • Colorado is known world-wide for its excellent ski resorts, but you don't have to wait for cold weather to visit this amazing state. Outdoor activities abound all year long. Let's take a look at some of the favorites among adventure seekers.

  • Fast as hell and gets you there in style... that describes the legendary Acura NSX. Now it also describes a new prototype fishing boat from San Juan Yachts that was inspired by the car. This new SJ32 fishing boat will feature Honda Marine engines ready to propel the boat through the water at up to 55mph. Fast to the fish and back in time for happy hour!

  • In a world dominated by technology, there's something special and primal about heading out on a boat to go fishing or in search of other adventures. That's not to say that I don't enjoy the benefits of modern technology but this connection between man and nature is something special that those choosing to sleep in and stay clean just won't ever understand. I had the opportunity to celebrate this connection between man and nature recently by taking a fishing trip with some of my blogger buddies to Punta Gorda, Florida and I can't wait to do it all over again.

  • Fishing is a great mixture of pastime, sport, interest, hobby, art, and science. Historically it is also an important skill that is critical to the survival of your family and a way for men to show that they possess the necessary talents to be considered a man. It is a peaceful thing to experience, something you can take pride in, and also something you can engage in to get away from the hardships of the world for a few hours. Today though, we can buy food from the market and fishing is more of just a healthy activity and way to spend some time on the water with clean fresh air. It is something that can be enjoyed by many no matter their age, gender, or career. Not only that, but there is a real skill to fishing. Easy to learn, hard to master is often the best phrase to use for this.

  • Bowfishing is appealing to those that are looking for a new challenge when it comes to fishing. Instead of sitting back and waiting for a fish to take a nibble of bait on your hook, it's a active sport. Quite literally it is hunting fish as they swim by, rather than just waiting for them to jump on your hook. If you are an experienced bowhunter, then you know how much fun it is to hunt fish using a bowfishing bow.

  • Bass fishing is one of the most popular activities in the United States. Over time it has evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry, with thousands of people enjoying it each year. If you’re one of them, there’s probably one question that you have above all else – how can you catch more bass? Bass fishing may look easy to those who have never done it, but there’s a lot of thought and technique that goes into it.

  • It might be cold right now but summer is just around the corner. For some, an Alaska cruise is the perfect way to see the state for the first time. However, I'm hooked now and dream of returning soon to spend some time fishing, exploring, and learning more about what it means to be in Alaska. There is no better time to visit Alaska than during the summer when the daylight hours are long and the weather is warm!

  • If you've ever dreamed of the ultimate fly fishing adventure, it doesn't get much better than this. Imagine spending 17-days in the Chilean Patagonia dipping your fly into remote waters barely touched by civilization.

  •  When planning the mancation adventure of your dreams, it is important to look for ultimate experiences that you can only get in certain areas. For instance, there's only one Las Vegas, only one Munich. While you can get similar experiences in other places, this is your ultimate mancation adventure and you want to make sure that it is so amazing that your friends want to join you no matter what the cost!

  • This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of T-Rex® Tape. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Everyone knows that plain ol' duct tape is a must have for any adventure, but how much do you really think about it? I was talking with some of my buddies about this and so we came up with some of our top ways to use duct tape on a fishing trip.

    The first thing to think about though is that not all duct tape is created equal. Prior to being contacted by the folks at T-Rex Tape, I would just go to the store and buy whatever was there. I didn't care about colors or features - I just wanted "duct tape" because it was a sort of miracle product that was good for everything from well, sealing holes in your duct work in your home to helping to get rid of warts on your fingers. I always have a roll in my bug-out bag that I bring with me on the trail for off road trips, in the car along with emergency supplies for a road trip, and of course when I go out fishing too. 

     
  • Fishing is one of the most fun sports that I can think of. It’s a great way to enjoy nature and time away from technology while bonding with our brothers and testing our skills against nature. Unfortunately, as people travel farther and farther to enjoy new locations, we are taking invasive species with us. When introduced in new environments, these invaders can wreak havoc on their new environment and potentially lead to the destruction of what once made that area great. Luckily, there are things you can do to help limit their spread and preserve waterways such as Montana’s streams, rivers and lakes for generations to come.

  • I absolutely love fishing and some of my best and oldest memories involve sitting in a boat hoping to catch some fish. However, as much fun as it might be to simply sit there and be men while harvesting your dinner - it's essential that we are good stewards of this important natural resource. This is even more challenging when you travel to new areas where you might be less familiar with regulations and are ultimately farther away from your kitchen. However, here are some tips and advice that I've learned over the years to help men be more responsible fishermen when they travel.

  • Florida is one of the best states to visit for freshwater fishing trips. It has over 7,500 lakes in addition to numerous reservoirs and rivers, with dozens of different fish species to catch. You're so spoiled for choice that it can be difficult to pick the best spots for freshwater fishing if you're planning a trip. Here's a list of some of my favorite locations.

  • The Gulf Coast of Florida is one of the most beautiful and amazing places in the country to visit. It's a playground for those who love to celebrate all the great things that the water can bring, without worrying about rough waves. The folks at Visit Bradenton invited me and a few of my best friends on a trip recently to Anna Maria Island and Bradenton, Florida to check it out. Here's some of the awesome fun we had while visiting the area.

  • There are a lot of places in the United States where you can go fly fishing, but after dropping my fly in the Missouri River a few hundred times last month I'm convinced that Montana is one of the best. It has a unique combination of beautiful vistas, plentiful fish, diversity of waterways, and the infrastructure to support the industry with equipment, guides, and community. While the mountain streams in the west get the most attention for their abundant trout, don't forget about the prairies in the east since from edge to edge, this state is among best in the nation when it comes to opportunities for an incredible fly fishing experience.

  • There's nothing quite like spending the day out on the water. It's a sense of freedom that comes from the elimination of roads, an infinite horizon, and the thrill of wind in your hair. Whether you are looking for, there's fun to be had boating - from hanging out on a fishing boat, or even just peddling a boat around a pond. Boating is fun and it is something that I've enjoyed since I was a little kid.

  • New York State has some of the top bass fishing spots in the country and this makes it a great place to visit year round - including ice fishing as well as from the shore, a bass fishing boat or even a kayak! You get away from the city noise and replace that with nature. Along with the fresh air, it can also be a great exercise. However, choosing the perfect place for your day-off may be harder thank you think. We are talking about 70,000+ miles of rivers and streams. To help you make this decision, here are 5 bass fishing spots in the New York area you should definitely have on your radar.

  • Are you planning for trout fishing and searching for the best places for it? Well, you can ask any angler about it, but we wonder whether you will get any ultimate answer or not. This is the reason we are creating an ultimate guide to tell how to mold things by own hands and how to start finding your ideal fishing spots.

  • When it comes to hunting and fishing lodges, my experience has been the accommodations are typically at one end or the other of a wide spectrum with very little in the middle. That's why I was thrilled to spend the night at the new Legendary Suites, part of the Woodland Resort in Devil's Lake North Dakota last week. The moment I walked through the door, I knew it was something different. While it was affordable it wasn't crummy. Instead, it felt extremely well designed and perfect for exactly what it is - a place to sleep, eat, and share stories before and after a day on the lake or marshes.
