Cheers to the New Year!


Well Happy New Year Y'all!! Phew, it's been a crazy holiday season for me and now that I'm back in Florida, I'm ready to get back to work! I think last time I checked in, I was heading out to do some hunting in Kansas with an old Air Force buddy of mine. Well, that trip turned out to be a trip all the way to the Left Coast to meet up with my wife and her family in California for Christmas. Thankfully I drove, and was well equipped with my Engel coolers and Performance Freezer, so the wild boar, deer and my buddy's farm raised cattle were perfectly preserved at cool enough temperatures for all the way home. 


Had a production team meeting today discussing our upcoming shoot schedule, Dick's appearances, Miami Boat Show, and the Bassmaster Classic. That's right, I'll be heading back to Houston in March to join a few of our sponsors at the Classic event. More details to come! 


I also got a sneak peak of a few of the upcoming episodes we already had in the bag before the holiday season. Sam, Producerman and the Mogan Music Boys were busy getting ahead while I was off enjoying the down time. Looks good, sounds great and can't wait to share the new season with y'all in April!  


Just a quick hello to let y'all know I'm back in Florida, back to fishing and can't wait to be back on TV! Oh, picking up the new Skeeters over the next couple of weeks too! I'll be sure to share some photos . . . got some interesting new color schemes to show off. Watch out!  

Until next week . . . tight lines,

'Tis the Season . . .


Okay, so I've been slacking just a bit, but 'tis the season for that, right? Actually, the last time y'all saw me was down in Ft. Myers with Beavertail Skiffs at the boat show. After that, I ate some turkey with my family on Thanksgiving, and then headed out to the plains of Kansas and a little further south to Oklahoma. I've been hunting! It's been one of the best trips of my life. Spending time hunting hogs, deer and fowl with an old Air Force buddy is truly something I'm thankful for.




Now, I'm heading to California to spend Christmastime with my wife's family. Ain't too bad either! I've got some gift ideas to share with y'all . . . great stuff for that angler in your life:  



Flats Blue or Flats Pink rods sure make an interesting looking present all wrapped up by the tree. I betcha no one will guess what it is? Ha!


DOA Lures, Trokar Mogan Spoons, Mirrolures, Seaguar Smackdown, or some Pro-Cure make great stocking stuffers too. 

Pick out a nice new Engel Tumbler if you don't need a big cooler just yet. Some bigger items might require a little more wrapping paper (or just a big bow) - like a Beavertail Skiff or Skeeter Bay Boat

Want to let someone pick out their favorite trolling motor or Talon? Just wrap up a Minn Kota hat or Humminbird Tshirt and tell them to hit the internet and do some shopping for the perfect fish finder.

If you're really stumped, or have someone who's super special, just get them a Dick's Sporting Goods gift card and send 'em on their Merry way to shop their hearts out. Get creative and have fun! 

Watching the episodes on Pursuit? Check out "King for a Day" on Pursuit Monday at 7 a.m., Wednesday at 12:30 a.m. and then on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. (ET). I'm fishing in Tampa Bay with Capt. Chris Camps and we're hooking into Smoker Kingfish! If you miss it on TV, just catch the replay on our YouTube channel. Y'all can watch all our episodes on the AF channel. 


I've been in so many different states, woods, blinds and roads lately that I'm not quite sure where I'm typing y'all from . . . but, I'll be back after the holidays to fill you in on what's new for the 2017 Season of Addictive Fishing!!

Until next week . . . tight lines,

Beavertail'ing It!


Come see me on Saturday in Ft. Myers at the Boat Show. I'll be hanging around the coolest skiffs (and people) in the place . . . in the Beavertail booth from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Would love to show y'all how well built these boats are and truly handmade to perfection. Look forward to seeing y'all!!


Tune into Pursuit Channel on Sunday at 5:30 p.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 ya miss it on Sunday, it airs again on Monday 7 a.m. (ET), and Wednesday 12:30 a.m. (ET). If you miss it on TV, check out our YouTube channel for over 600 videos . . . that's a lot of rod bendin' drag screamin' action y'all!

I'll see y'all this weekend in the Beavertail booth at the Ft. Myers Boat Show!!

Until next week . . . tight lines,

Flats Fishing in Texas


This week's episode I'm flats fishing in Texas with Capt. Sally Black. . . wade fishing in the shallow waters of Baffin Bay to be more specific. Capt. Sally had us get out of the Skeeter and get our feet wet . . . 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, trout 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? 


Tune into Pursuit Channel on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. and then again on Monday 7 a.m. (ET), and Wednesday 12:30 a.m. (ET). If you miss it, check out our YouTube channel for over 600 videos . . . that's a lot of rod bendin' drag screamin' saltwater action y'all!


I'm going to make this week's blog a little short, I'm heading back out to hunt. My favorite time of year is right now . . . I can enjoy a little bit of both fishing and hunting, and right now I'm getting my hunt on! 


What I love about what I get to do for a living is that so many of my sponsors' products do crossover into my love for hunting. For example, my Engel coolers keep our food, drinks and fish nice and cold when fishing and they do a great job of keeping our food, drinks and deer nice and cold when we're hunting too. I never leave home without an Engel cooler, my Engel tumbler and now when I'm hunting, my Engel fridge/freezer. If you have an outdoorsman/woman on your Christmas list to buy for, check out www.engelcoolers.com for lots of gift ideas!


Take some time out of your crazy schedule and social media, and go outside! Slow down, enjoy your family and friends. It does a body good!

Until next week . . . tight lines,

Check out "Goldfish" on Monday at 7 a.m. (ET), Wednesday at 12:30 a.m. and Sunday at 5:30 p.m. If you miss it on the Pursuit Channel, then catch it on our YouTube channel any time!

Head's up . . . I'll be in Ft. Myers in a couple of weeks at the Boat Show. I'll be spending Saturday, November 19th in the Beavertail Skiffs booth.

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,
Blair
