I hate Labor Day!

I hate Jerry Lewis... Don't get me wrong, he's a talented guy, a huge influence on many of today's stand-ups and unquestionably broke a lot of comedic ground. It's just that as a youth, school was not my favorite thing, summer was -and in a lot of ways still is-...

Humble Pie

Since I retired from playing in the NFL people always ask me what I do to get that rush or thrill from competition.  Most people assume that I miss the game so much that I go by camp to watch practice and try to get down on the sidelines for...

2009 charter season goes out with a bang!

I skipped a fishing report post here on our website last week because, well, I just ran out of time on our last turn around day to post one. The last report is available over at if you care to see some great fishing photos and a couple of...

Tuna Time with Tobeck!!!

This is a bookend blog. Back in April, I poked a bit of fun at my "partner in (on-air) crime" with my May 18th entry entitled "Tiger Muskies, Tobeck, Tarps and Trees"  After a day out tuna fishin' aboard Robbie's boat "Salmon Hawk" I gotta give my tuna-lovin' Coug counterpart...

Don’t mess with Texas!

When you see a lot of whale pictures in my reports you know the fishing is good. Sunny days and a relatively calm ocean have been the scene here the last few days with plenty of action to keep the rods bent. Two boats worth of Texans, with Robert "Permagrin" Aguilera on...

Home River Redemption: Skagit River Chinook (Part III)

With my nephew, Dan Warns home on leave from the Navy, the pressure was on to get this sailor’s rod bent! Petty Officer 3rd Class Warns has a serious smoked salmon addiction and once he got a whiff of my hard earned summer stash, it started disappearing fast!   Faced...

Great fishing continues in SE Alaska!

We just came off another great week of fishing here in Craig, Alaska with daily coho limits and wide open action on both halibut and ling cod.  King salmon fishing is starting to fizzle, but there are still a few kings around here and there.  Yesterday we got into a completely stupid coho bite...

Robbo’s Rancho Halibut Burritos

It's pretty safe to say that you won't find many rice cakes on my dinner plate and friends who have ordered at restaurants with me often hear me ask,"How big is it?", or "How much food is there with this?" To keep this big frame moving at A.D.H.D. speed all...

Welcome to the 2009 Ray Reep Skagit Chinook and Pink Salmon Derby!!!

It’s no secret that the Skagit is my “home river”. I literally grew up on it, guided on it and scattered my father’s ashes in it. After this weekend I will add another item to the list and that will be: Fishing Derby MC! I have been asked to host...
