Father’s Day Reflections

  Every Father’s Day it makes me think about how thankful I am of good ole dad, and think back on the many fishing memories we have together. I grew up on the water in Marblehead, Massachusetts fishing early mornings & late evenings with my fisherman hero. I would watch in awe as Striper feeds […]

Viva La Baja

Every March I save up to take a tropical fishing adventure to keep the edge off before my favorite Striped Bass arrive back to the North Shore in May. In 2015 I went down to the Bahamas for a DIY Camping and Fishing adventure with a bunch of great guys. Last year I went down […]

Scotland Salmon Fishing

“They say good things come to those who wait?  Matt fished hard all day through some proper Scottish Autumnal weather and managed to land this beast at 19.5lbs – well deserved! Looking back, Salmon fishing on the River Tay was one of the coolest experiences I had ever had. I was able to fish some […]
