The Art of Listening to Catch more Fish.

The results of listening to the right anglers and captains on how to fly a kite and what tackle to be using to troll a flying fish. There is so much to learn if we can truly listen to what people are trying to tell us. Spending most of my life fishing, first with my father, and later in life with some of the best in the business has taught me it is very difficult to listen and truly hear...

The right tool for the job. By Captain Darren Dorris

Most of us can truly understand the concept of the right tool for the job, but do we always follow it? I am sure many of you (me included) have used a butter knife as a screwdriver, or anything other than a hammer to bang in a nail. We know there are the right tool for those jobs, but we use what’s on hand or what’s convenient; the silverware drawer is closer than the tool box, right?  I know...

A Trip to Jurassic Park By Capt Justin Suarez

  Cubera snapper smiling for the camera     It's been twenty four hours since I got back from the most epic week of fishing yet. When I close my eyes I can still hear the drag screaming, the triumphant and celebratory hoots and hollers, and the sounds of billfish slicing the cobalt blue waters of Costa Rica. We headed down to Los Suenos via JFK airport and by 1:30pm we were settled into our gorgeous condo in Los Suenos. The first day we...

“Turks and Caicos: Paradise Found” By Capt. Justin Suarez

    Our guide with the gold at the end of the rainbow. All smiles. Yellow taxi cabs zipped by with the sounds of angry and impatient drivers shouting and honking their horns trying to make their way into the departure lanes at the Jet Blue Terminal in JFK. Normally I would be in the mix of these maniacal drivers stressed out trying to find a spot where I could wait to pick up a friend or family member without being asked...

East Cape Round up with Team Jen Wren

East Cape Slug Swordfish. Definite fish of a lifetime. The East Cape is heating up. Our humidity is starting to rise and now daytime temperatures are starting to tip 90 degrees.

Nearshore Bottom Fishing with the Liquid Fire Fishing Team

Low ambient temperatures… brisk winds… cold water… generally, not the conditions considered perfect for southern, Atlantic coast anglers. So, what our Liquid Fire Fishing Team decided recently was to ignore those offerings that early March offered and make a nearshore jaunt in our bay boat to target the often overlooked, underappreciated, but tasty table fare, black sea bass. While this species isn’t considered difficult to target or catch at any point during the year, the black bass does offer exactly...

Accurate Pro Staff Mike Smedley talks about the importance of the right gear.

Every fall thousands of trophy Striped Bass venture South from New Englandseeking warmer water. These fish only stop when they find enormous quantities of forage. Up North clams and menhaden are on the menu, but when they pour into the Chesapeake Bay, its eels. We concentrate on the giant females that are smashing through schools of bait, inhaling anything that will fit down their throat. During this very small window, these cows let down their guard and strap on...
