That's a Wrap!


Had a blast this season fishing with some good friends of mine that have been on the show before, and making some new friends with Captains I've never fished with.

Speaking of being on set at the MPI Studio . . . we just shot an AF Live webisode this past Tuesday with a special guest, Bill Carson. Bill is the Field Marketing Manager for the Minn Kota, Humminbird and Cannon brands and if you think I have a fun job, you should meet Bill! Ha! Ha! He gets to fish just about any where at any given time, with anglers from all over, and using the top-in-the-industry products. Sounds pretty darned good. This guy knows his stuff too. Check out the replay of the LIVE webisode and all of the good questions Mr. Bill Carson answered for y'all. It was fun and informative too. Hope Bill joins us again soon!


Until next week . . . tight lines,

Swamped



This week, we're fishing in Capt. Mark Nichols' backyard of Stuart, Florida in my new Beavertail Vengeance. Mark is the owner and creator of DOA Lures, and it's always a trip fishing with my buddy Mark. We're fishing in the blue-green algae waters of the Treasure Coast making sure our beloved snook are still around and healthy. Mark sure makes things fun no matter if we're catching or not, but we ARE catching. I even take him back to the 10 cent bridge to see what's biting, and we both slam 40" Mogan Snook!! The algae bloom is an environmental issue and it definitely needs to be addressed, but on the good side of the story, the snook are still there and looking healthy. 





Check out "Swamp Thing" on Fox Sports Sun tomorrow morning at 10:30 a.m. (ET). You can also catch the replay on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. (ET) and again Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. (ET) If you don't get Fox Sports Sun on your TV, catch it on our YouTube channel Mondays at 7 p.m. (ET) . . .

We've got a treat for y'all on Tuesday, September 13th . . . I'll be coming to ya LIVE on set with a special guest. Humminbird Guru, Bill Carson will be joining me to talk technology. Bill and me just got done fishing in Georgia on Lake Lanier for Striper and Walleye (yep, I went freshwater fishing), and he got to show me so many tricks, techniques and cool technology that Humminbird, Minn Kota and Cannon have out there. I know we were on a freshwater lake, but the cool thing that Bill was showing me is that all of these products and techniques work just as fantastic in saltwater as they do fresh. Can't wait to introduce him to y'all and to take your questions. Make sure you tune in on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. from our YouTube channel! Oh, and we'll also be announcing our final Show Your Mogan Photo Contest Winner of the summer LIVE

Until next week . . . tight lines,

Bite it!


We do a Bits and Bites episode each year usually out of footage from shoots we call a "miss" where we didn't get an entire episode . . . this year it's the complete opposite. This year's Bits and Bites episode is from shows we shot, but we caught too many fish to put into one episode, so y'all haven't seen everything yet. 


We put together an episode to show you stuff you haven't seen . . . like this gorgeous Yellowfin Grouper, MAN! What a beautiful fish. I had never seen one before and it blew me away with it's colors and markings. Always something fun when we're on the Star Brite with Capt. Chris Trosset. Check out "Bits and Bites" on Fox Sports Sun tomorrow morning at 10:30 a.m. (ET). You can also catch the replay on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. (ET) and again Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. (ET) If you don't get Fox Sports Sun on your TV, catch it on our YouTube channel Mondays at 7 p.m. (ET) . . . Producerman gets it up there for y'all to watch, every Monday at 7 p.m.


I hope everyone has been staying safe and dry this week as Tropical Storm Hermine hits our state . . . aaI was actually a bit north in Georgia this week. I had the pleasure of hanging out with Mr. Bill Carson of Humminbird. We were fishing and shooting an episode on Lake Lanier. Bill has the Humminbird and those striper dialed in! Y'all are going to have to wait a bit though before you see this episode, we're getting a head start on the shooting of the 2017 season. Sorry to tease ya! 


Hope you are safe, dry and have a great weekend. 

Until next week . . . tight lines,

Glades and Firetrucks



We're going back to fish with the "Chokoloskee Kid" in the Everglades in this week's episode. Capt. Brian Sanders has been on the show now 6 times, and if y'all haven't checked out his previous episodes yet, check 'em out on the AF YouTube channel. We've caught monster snook, redfish, cobia, permit and even sawfish throughout the years . . . and in this week's episode we're fishing for snapper, offshore snook and red grouper (Capt. Brian calls them "Firetrucks" when they get real big and pull ya like it's a firetruck on the other end of the line)!

You can also catch the replay on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. (ET) and again Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. (ET) If you don't get Fox Sports Sun on your TV, catch it on our YouTube channel Mondays at 7 p.m. (ET) . . .

I just came in off the water in Tampa Bay. I was shooting some stuff for Seaguar and it felt good to be out there for a couple of hours this morning, just playing around. Have y'all see my FG Knot video Mr. Producerman just uploaded the clip to our YouTube channel? I go step by step showing you how to tie Seaguar braid to fluorocarbon leader with the FG Knot. Each week we'll share another knot video with you, so be sure to check 'em out. You can pick up Seaguar's Smackdown braid and fluorocarbon leader at Dick's Sporting Goods just about anywhere. Can't find it on the shelves, just visit the AF Tackle Shop!

Gotta go wash off the Skeeter . . . maybe I'll just dunk it right back in at the ramp? Hmmmm? Decisions, decisions! Have a fun weekend and be kind to one another. 

Until next week . . . tight lines,

Mosquito Lagoon Again



Y'all know Capt. Travis Tanner from a few AF episodes, but one of the earliest episodes was shot while fishing the No Motor Zone in "The Drum Zone." Capt. Travis and I go waaaaay back and we still have a blast whenever we can fish together. This week's episode I'm back in my home waters on the Space Coast - the Mosquito Lagoon, and Capt. Travis is putting us on a nice school of Mosquito Lagoon reds and trout. Not the perfect weather conditions, but that's why I go with a guide that knows his fishery, knows the fish and knows his stuff!

You can catch the replay on Sunday night at 9:30 p.m. (ET) and again Wednesday morning at 8:30 a.m. (ET) If you don't get Fox Sports Sun on your TV, catch it on our YouTube channel Mondays at 7 p.m. (ET) . . .

Have y'all been to the Mogan Lounge on Facebook yet? Check it out . . . we've got lots of sharing of Mogan photos going on over there, event invites, updates and #showyourmogan contest too! One event that I'm particularly excited about and just got added is the Beavertail event happening on October 8th. It's the first official event I'll be joining for Beavertail and can't wait to show off my Vengeance, talk fishing and meet everyone. Check out the details on the Lounge, and while you're there, just say "Hey!" 


I'm ordering my new 2017 Skeeter boats this week . . . I love this time of year, it's like Christmas for us here at AF. Got a new SX210 and a new SX230 coming from the factory. I'll be loading those bad boys up with all the bells and whistles from Humminbird, Minn Kota, Atlas, T-H Marine, and Engel. I'll share photos of it all when they get here!

Getting some stuff done around the hacienda before things get busy again! Y'all have fun on the water, be safe and be good to one another.

Until next week . . . tight lines,
Blair
