Pop the Cork

Mr. Mogan heads south to Chokoloskee and teams up with Capt. Brian Sanders for some redfish and snook, Calusa nets make catching bait easy, state record Mogan of the Week, and a few upcoming events for the Space Coast.

This week's show has Capt. Blair and Capt. Brian Sanders using a rig some of you may not be familiar with, the Deadly Combo. The Deadly Combo is basically a popping cork fished above a plastic bait, in this case a D.O.A. shrimp. What's affectionately known as a "tourist rig" proves to be one fish catching, well . . . um, deadly combo.  Click here to find out what the Mogan Man thinks about these rigs.

For the birds . . . Did you know Florida's Space Coast is one of the best birding locations in North America with more than 330 species of birds documented on our coast? For this reason, the Space Coast is the home of one of the largest birding festivals in the country, The Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival. Hosted by the Brevard Nature Alliance, this birding and wildlife festival, which is scheduled for January 23-28, 2013, attracts more than five thousand nature and wildlife enthusiasts from around the world for six days of nature and wildlife activities that coincide with peak activity for wintering bird populations. Scheduled activities include birding field trips, kayaking adventures, horseback riding into Florida's outback, interactive workshops with the Raptor Project, a free exhibit center with over 80 vendors, a juried art show, and keynote presentations by naturists Greg Miller, Joanne Williams, Mark & Selena Kiser, and Kevin Karlson. All field trips and classroom sessions will be led by a combination of biologists, ornithologists, scientists, photographers, and historians.
