Melton Drags

Capt Blair Wiggins Bull Shark

This week's new episode is with Capt. Tony Melton . . . we called it "Melton Drags" because that's exactly what we did that day, melt some drags on Tripletail and Sharks. We went down to Islamorada last month and shot this episode. Had a great time with Capt. Tony, he told me it'd been awhile since he was the one fighting the fish so when he hooked into a Mogan shark late in the day, I think he was sorry he ever shared that bit of information with me. Ha! Got his arms stretched a bit.

He sure put me on the Tripletail though too . . . I love how I can stand up on my Engel Cooler, use it as a casting platform and see into the water where the fish are. Just that little extra bit of height makes all the difference. This casting platform does double duty though . . . does it's job while I'm fishing and keeps my drinks ice cold when I'm done. 

A special thanks to our friends at Star Brite for the hospitality while in Islamorada. They opened up their home to me and the crew and we truly appreciate it. When you're on the road as much as we are, a little bit of "home" away from home makes a huge difference in the morale. We enjoyed it and will definitely be back. If y'all have never been down to Islamorada yet, you really need to check it out. Some of the most beautiful water I've ever seen.  While you're there, stop by Islamorada Boats, test drive a Skeeter bay boat, and meet Capt. Tony Melton! 

You can book a charter with any of the captains you see on the show, ya know? Just click on the Book a Fishing Trip button on the AF website. It takes you to a page where we have the captains listed. I get to fish all over the place, but each place I visit I charter a captain because they live those waters day in and day out . . . they know where the fish are!  

Tune in tomorrow (Friday) at 9:00 a.m., Sunday at 9:30 p.m. or Wednesday at 7:00 a.m. on Fox Sun Sports for this week's episode "Melton Drags." I'm heading out on the water today to see what's biting . . . y'all have a great weekend!!

Until next week . . . tight lines,
