King for the Weekend

I sure felt like a King in Texas this past weekend. Me, Producerman and Trice were in Houston all weekend and celebrated the grand opening of 6 stores - 4 Dick's Sporting Goods and 2 Field & Stream stores. It was a blast, and a BIG TEXAS-SIZED THANK YOU to everyone who came out to meet us, check out the new stores, pick up some great tackle deals and just spend time sharing fish stories. We had a blast, and I really felt like a King with that kind of warm welcome!

Speaking of Kings . . . how about catching some smokers? Well, that's exactly what Capt. Chris Camps has me doing in this week's episode from Tampa Bay. When Capt. Chris called to say the Tampa Bay fishery was going off, I didn't give it a second thought. I just grabbed my gear and my Skeeter SX240 tower boat and headed over. I love being up there, driving and looking for fish, and fishing under the Skyway bridge in it is pretty darn cool. Hooking into smoker kingfish that day was just the icing on the cake!

Check out "King for a Day" on Pursuit Monday at 7 a.m. and Wednesday at 12:30 a.m. (ET). If you miss it on TV, just catch the replay on our YouTube channel.

I'm heading down to Boca Raton this weekend to open another Florida Dick's Sporting Goods store. I'll be in the store on Friday morning from 8 a.m. - Noon and then again on Saturday from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. I'll help you pick out the perfect Flats Blue or Flats Pink rod and FREE Sabalos reel to go with it. Need some lures? I'll help you find the right DOA, Mogan Series Mirrolures and Pro-Cure scent to go with it. I can even show you the perfect knot to tie on your Seaguar fluorocarbon and Smackdown braid. Come out and see me!

Until next week . . . tight lines,

Texas Here We Come!

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 Pursuit on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. (ET). We're catching a little bit of everything, surprised by a couple of hook ups too. If you miss it on Sunday, then catch it on our YouTube channel too. If you're in the mood for some kingfish later, tune in to Pursuit on Monday at 7:00 a.m. and Wednesday at 12:30 a.m. for "King for a Day." We're fishing with Capt. Chris Camps in Tampa Bay for kingfish and having a blast!

Going Big in Texas

I'm fishing with Capt. Butch Butler on Sunday's episode, and we're catching largemouth bass, using DOA's new freshwater lures. Now, I know I always say, "It's a Saltwater Show Brotha!" but I've gotten so many requests from viewers over the 17 years of doing AF, that we all figured it was time to do a bass show. And, what better lake in Florida to fish than Lake O? Check it out on the Pursuit Channel, Sunday at 5:30 p.m.

Then on Monday at 7:00 a.m. and on Wednesday at 12:30 a.m., I'm back in Baffin Bay, Texas fishing 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 any of the episodes on TV, you can always catch it on our YouTube channel . . . Mr. Producerman has it up there for y'all to watch any time you want!

It's perfect that I'm fishing in Texas on the next episode, because I'm coming out to Texas next weekend! I'll be spending the entire weekend at the Grand Opening events for six (6) Dick's Sporting Goods / Field & Stream stores in the Houston area. I'll be at 2 stores a day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (October 21st, 22nd and 23rd). Where and when to find me is listed below:

Sally's World

I'm in South Texas in this week's episode. I was down there for a grand opening of Dick's Sporting Goods in Brownsville, TX last October and while allllll the way down there, we decided to fish Baffin Bay. We got to fish with two of the nicest people in South Texas - Captains Sally and Aubrey Black. This week's episode is me fishing with Capt. Sally . . . wade fishing in the shallow waters of Baffin Bay. She's the real deal y'all! Capt. Sally and her husband Aubrey also own and operate the Baffin Bay Rod & Gun where we stayed, were fed and welcomed with warm hospitality. Now, I highly recommend y'all give this a try. Beautiful redfish and black drum, great accommodations and folks who know the fishery and will put you on some fish. What a more could you ask for?
