New Electronics for the SalmonHawk

After the show from Anacortes on Saturday, Nelly and Robbo couldn't wait to get out of our makeshift studio Skagit Orca provided by Master Marine.  You see they were going fishing in the 4th annual Anacortes Salmon Derby.  I on the other hand couldn't wait to get out of there...

Anacortes Derby

We finished off this past week with a live broadcast from the Anacortes Derby on Saturday morning and then jumped in Tom Nelson's boat after the show to fish the remainder of the derby in the San Juans. 1000 tickets were sold in just 9 days for this event and...

Costa Rica Report

It was only natural for our partner Tom Nelson to fish for blackmouth the day before we left for Costa Rica and the day after we got back. Go figure...we're heading to Anacortes today to fish in the derby. I mean, the guys talking about dam counts at Bonneville Dam...

Billfish Number One and Sierra Number One and Bonita Number One and…

The Key to a Happy Family

My wife doesn't ask too much of me, but when she does ask something I try to make it happen. There has been one request however that I just haven't been able to get done, at least not until now.  What was the request?  She simply wanted to be able to park her...

Shifting Gears, A Return to the Bluewater

The gang from the Outdoor Line packs up and heads south to Costa Rica on Sunday to scout out the location of our 2011 Outdoor Line Billfish Tournament. Robbie Tobeck had an excellent trip to Los Suenos just after he retired from the NFL and I've had numerous friends and...

The Bass Pro and Ordinary Joe

Two hours into my latest habit of not catching fish, I stared across the slough at a wake caused by a fish trying to fly and failing miserably. The result was impressive though, and the concussion captured my attention. It again leaped from the brown water, arched its back, flicked...

Tuna Dog in Hatteras for More Bluefin!!!

By Del Stephens "Tuna Dog".  I'm back out in Hatteras fishing with the boys from Tuna Duck Sportfishing and it's a good thing we planned to stay in Hatteras for a week because the weather has been cold and extremely windy at times. Our blue fin tuna trip started out...
