Salty Surprise!


Remember Capt. Tony Melton? We fished with him last season for the episode "Melton Drags" and caught some nice triple tail and shark. Had a blast, and knew we'd be fishing again with him someday. Well that someday was a couple of weeks back, 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.


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,

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,

Okeechobee Replay



Tune in to Fox Sports Sun tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. (ET) for "Lake O," I'm fishing with Capt. Butch Butler 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? 



If you miss it tomorrow, then tune in on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. and again on Wednesday 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) . . . you can always find some rod bendin' drag screamin' action online!


Been gone all week in Key West shooting with the fantastic folks from Star Brite. Y'all remember Capt. Pete from a few episodes a couple of seasons ago? He's one of the best and we love being guests on his 62' Viking. This trip we went back to the Tortugas and caught a boat load of fish! We got some episodes shot, ate really well and laughed a lot. Thanks to Capt. Pete Dornau, Capt. Chris Trosset, Capt. Kevin Cote, Greg Dornau and the Star Brite family!! Here's a look back at our last trip with this crazy crew: https://youtu.be/dYw49OK7tRc

When in Rome . . .


This week's episode is me wade fishing with Capt. Sally Black 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. The reason for our trip was, I was down there for a grand opening of Dick's Sporting Goods in Brownsville, TX in October, and while allllll the way down there, we decided to fish Baffin Bay. 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. Perfect trip!



Tune in to Fox Sports Sun tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. (ET) for "Sally's World," then on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. and again on Wednesday 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) . . . you can always find some rod bendin' drag screamin' action online! 


How many of y'all watched Monday night's webisode of AF Live on YouTube and how many on Facebook? What did ya think? We were having fun with all the new cameras and platforms we could go LIVE on. Mr. Producerman has us wired for more LIVE webisodes too! We'll be LIVE every Monday this month, so don't miss next week's AF Live at 7 p.m.!


Me and the crew are heading to Key West next week to shoot a few episodes. We'll be going shallow with our new Beavertail BTV Vengeance, and I feel like a kid at Christmas - can't wait!! Then, we'll be joining up with the folks at Star Brite, to fish off of the Star Brite with Capt. Chris Trosset in much deeper waters. This trip is like our spring break, summer vacation and now Christmas all wrapped into one. Good times, great fishing and spectacular people to hang with. Can't wait to bring the episodes to you soon!!


Washing off the truck, packing both my Skeeter 240, Beavertail Vengeance, Peterson trailer, tackle, clothes and hopefully not forgetting anything! Talk to y'all next week.

I'll be heading down to Key West next week too. I'm so excited, I just can't wait! We'll be fishing with the Star Brite folks again this season on the 62' Star Brite Viking. What's even cooler, I'll be bringing down my new Beavertail 18' Vengeance, for a chance to fish skinny waters around the Marquesas. We've never done anything like this yet, and I just can't wait. Central Marine in St. Pete got our Yamaha motors delivered last week, we're picking up our Peterson Trailer today, getting it over to Beavertail, loading our new skiff up and hitting the water soon to break everything in.

It's a Saltwater Show Brotha! (sort of . . .)


Y'all aren't going to believe this, but we're fishing for bass this week on one of Florida's finest lakes, Lake Okeechobee. I'm fishing with Capt. Butch Butler 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?



Tune in to Fox Sports Sun tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. (ET) for "Lake O," then on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. and again on Wednesday 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) . . . you can always find some rod bendin' drag screamin' action online!



I just got back from Destin, FL and I have to say, I feel quite humbled and proud. I was invited for the third year in a row to be part of the Royall Rumble Cobia Tournament, put on by the fine folks at Legendary Marine, the Royall family and the Special Operations Wounded Warrior Charity. It's a cobia tournament, but it's so much more than that . . . it's a chance for wounded veterans, veterans and active duty military men and women to be recognized and celebrated for their contributions and service to our country. It's a chance for all of us to thank them for their commitments and sacrifices. It's an opportunity to do something so very small for them in comparison to what they've done for us. I love coming back up to Destin every year to be a part of this and I've made such great friends too. Check out the video of this year's event on the AF Facebook page. 



I'll be heading back North to Tallahassee next week for the Rock the Dock Tournament. Did this event last year and it was such a blast that we're coming back! We kick things off on Thursday night at the Tallahassee Dick's Sporting Goods store with my seminar, lots of giveaways and big deals on tackle to get you ready to fish. Stop by to see us if you're in the area . . . would love to meet y'all and look forward to fishing the event too. 

I have GOT to do some laundry . . . 

Until next week, tight lines!
