Salty Star Brite Surprise


We fished Capt. Tony Melton last season for the episode "Melton Drags" and caught some nice tripletail and shark. Had a blast, and knew we'd be fishing again with him someday. We did fish with him again, and we get to show you in this week's episode "Salty Surprise." This episode is the outcome of a day well-spent on the water with Capt. Tony once again.



Check out "Salty Surprise" on Fox Sports Sun Friday morning at 9 a.m. (ET). We're catching a little bit of everything, surprised by a couple of hook ups too. If you miss it tomorrow morning, then catch the replay on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. and again Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. If you don't get Fox Sports Sun on your TV, catch it on our YouTube channel Mondays at 7 p.m. (ET) . . . Mr. Producerman gets it up there for y'all to watch, every Monday at 7 p.m.



Thank you to everyone who came out to see us at the new Dick's Sporting Goods store in Gainesville, FL this past weekend. Wow, what a great turnout, lots of fans coming in to shop and #showyourmogan . . . we gave away every bottle of Blair's Boat Wash by Star Brite because of that. Well done Gainesville! We saw a lot of Star Brite products now on the shelves at Dick's. They've expanded the line of products sold there, so check it out. If you don't see it just yet at your local Dick's store, just ask a sale representative or store manager about it. Best boat care products I've ever used. Heck - best boat, RV, car, and cleaning products I've ever used.



We're shooting in the studio this week. I'll be over to work with Mr. Producerman and Sam on making some web videos to share with y'all. Stay tuned . . . we'll get 'em out to ya soon!

Until next week . . . tight lines,

Going Deep



Couldn't wait to bring y'all this week's episode . . . we're with the fantastic folks from Star Brite and we're fishing in the Tortugas again with Capt. Chris Trosset. We're "Going Deep" and catching big AJ's, grouper of every color, snapper and permit. We always have a blast when we're fishing with the Star Brite crew and Capt. Chris, but this year it seems there were laughs, and fish, around every corner.



Tune in to Fox Sports Sun tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. (ET), for "Going Deep." If you miss it tomorrow morning, then catch the replay on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. and again Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. If you don't get Fox Sports Sun on your TV, catch it on our YouTube channel Mondays at 7 p.m. (ET) . . .

I'll be in Gainesville this weekend . . . starting tomorrow (Friday, June 17th) from 8 a.m. - Noon, we'll be in the new Dick's Sporting Goods store kicking off things with tackle deals and all sorts of sales. I'll have our new Beavertail Vengeance out there too for y'all to check out. One of the perks of getting a Beavertail Skiff is the Peterson trailer it rides on. Come out, say hey, and I'll show ya what I mean! 


If you can't make it out on Friday, I'll be back at the Dick's store on Saturday from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., with my Beavertail Vengeance in tow again too. Can't wait to show it off!

Marquesas on the Fly


Check out "Marquesas on the Fly" on Fox Sports Sun tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. (ET), I'm getting fish slime on my new Beavertail Skiff in the Marquesas with Capt. Jared Cyr in this week's episode. Not just ordinary fish slime either . . . we christened that Vengeance with tarpon on a fly. That Beavertail Vengeance is so quiet, there was basically zero hull slap and you'll see the proof of it on the show. That tarpon ate just a few feet from the bow. Never had a boat so quiet! Glad to be back in a quality skiff. I'm dangerous now . . . best of both worlds with my Skeeter Bay Boats and Beavertail Skiffs. Watch it!!




If you miss it tomorrow morning, then catch the replay on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. and again Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. If you don't get Fox Sports Sun on your TV, catch it on our YouTube channel Mondays at 7 p.m. (ET) . . . Mr. Producerman gets it up there for y'all to watch, every Monday at 7 p.m.


Next weekend I'll be in Gainesville, FL y'all!! Hope you can make it out to see me at the new Dick's Sporting Goods store. I'll be there on Friday, June 17th from 8 a.m. - Noon and then on Saturday from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Stop by, get some killer deals on tackle, pick up a coupon and just say Hey! Looking forward to meeting y'all and swapping fish stories. 

Until next week . . . tight lines,
Blair

King for a Day



It's Graduation season right now, and we congratulate all graduates of Middle School, High School, College, Military, whatever it is you are completing and moving on to the next phase of your life . . . congrats on all the hard work that is paying off and much success to you all!!



Speaking of graduation, this week's captain on Addictive Fishing is Capt. Chris Camps. Y'all have seen him before on a couple of episodes over the past years, like "Camp Tarpon," but don't think you know how we know Capt. Chris? Mr. Producerman and Capt. Chris met at the University of S. Florida and graduated USF together. They've stayed in Tampa, kept in touch all these years and this week we're fishing in Tampa Bay with Capt. Chris Camps again.


There is nothing quite like the view I have from my Skeeter SX240 tower boat. I love being up there, driving and looking for fish. Being under the Skyway bridge in it, ain't too shabby either. Check out "King for a Day" on Fox Sports Sun Friday morning at 9 a.m. (ET). We're hooking into big, smoker kingfish! If you miss it tomorrow morning, then catch the replay on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. and again Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. If you don't get Fox Sports Sun on your TV, catch it on our YouTube channel Mondays at 7 p.m. (ET) . . . Mr. Producerman gets it up there for y'all to watch, every Monday at 7 p.m.


I'm heading to the Space Coast next week to fish with my good friend and former tournament partner, Capt. Travis Tanner. We're dunking my new Beavertail Vengeance again and will be poling it around back in my home waters. Can't wait!

Until next week . . . tight lines,

Tony once again.

We just wrapped another AF Live Webisode last Monday evening. Got to show y'all a sneak peak of some upcoming episodes as well as a bonus look behind the scenes of how we score all the music for AF. The Mogan Music Boys have been knocking it out of the park and scoring every episode for 15 years now - whatever sound we need, wherever we go, they bring that extra something special and local sound to each fish fight. Thanks guys . . . you rock!! Click here for that look behind the Mogan Music Boys in action.


Just saw some of the footage from our Star Brite / Beavertail trip to Key West, Marquesas and the Tortugas, WOW! My crew killed it on this trip, our special guests and captains killed it too. Can't wait to bring you those episodes! First trip out for my Beavertail Vengeance and I must say . . . where have you been all my life?!! The quietest skiff I have EVER fished from. Caught a tarpon on a fly and that fish ate about 3 feet from the boat. Only happens like that when you're quiet and we have the proof! Special thanks to Beavertail, Star Brite, Capt. Pete Dornau, Greg Dornau, Capt. Kevin Cote, Capt. Chris Trosset, Capt. Jared Cyr, Peterson Trailers and my crew. Way to getterdun!!


Until next week . . . tight lines,

Baffin Black



Check out "Baffin" on Fox Sports Sun tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. (ET), I'm back in Baffin Bay, Texas fishing in this week's episode with Capt. Aubrey Black. You last saw me a couple of weeks ago fishing with Capt. Aubrey's better half, Capt. Sally Black, and now Aubrey takes me back out catching Texas redfish and trout. If you miss it tomorrow morning, then catch the replay on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. and again Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. If you don't get Fox Sports Sun on your TV, catch it on our YouTube channel Mondays at 7 p.m. (ET) . . .

We really had a great time in South Texas, I really didn't want to leave! We stayed long enough to shoot two episodes from down there, and loved every minute of it. Like I said in my last blog about Texas . . . in my opinion, these South Texas sunrises and sunsets come pretty darn close to my favorite ones I grew up with on the Space Coast


I'll be LIVE again on Monday the 23rd for AF Live on YouTube and Facebook. Tune in and ask me any question . . . we take them LIVE and share some tips, video clips and info with you from the AF Live studio set. It's been a lot of fun. We've also been picking winners from our #showyourmogan contest as well as viewers asking questions. 


Our sponsors have been sending in packages of goodies to give away and let me just tell ya . . . you want to get in on this stuff!! Thanks to Engel Coolers, MirrOlure, DOA Lures, Trokar, Dick's Sporting Goods, Field & Stream, Skeeter, Peterson Trailers, Rugged Meats, Seaguar, Space Coast, Humminbird, Minn Kota, Beavertail, Star Brite, and Costa for sending in some killer prizes to get out to y'all. This has been a lot of fun!



Catching up on laundry from my fantastic trip to Key West, Marquesas and Tortugas! My arms are tired from catching fish, my face hurts from laughing and my belly is full. I'd say the trip was a success! Can't wait to show y'all some sneak peaks of the footage. Mr. Producerman and Sam tell me they've got some clips to share. Sweet!

Until next week . . . tight lines,
Blair
