Fishing with Capt. George Tunison | Recent storm muddies the waters, literally

Recently Cape motorists, many driving way too fast, splashing and drowning their engines, were shocked to learn that their cars weren’t very seaworthy, and had to bail out. Will car insurance rates go down now if you carry a car life vest? This same quick 8-inch deluge also muddied up the ...

Fishing | Winter fishing on the water, and along the shore

With unsettled weather predicted for the weekend, try to hit the water hard this afternoon as the tide starts to move in at 3 p.m. With a morning high at 11 and the low at 3 p.m. today, there’s almost no water movement predicted on the Saltwater Tides.com tide chart. That dead tide prediction ...

Fishing | Fishing on Christmas day? Expect low, slow tides and rain

If you plan to be on the water Christmas morning, expect a very low 0.7-foot, slow moving, all-day incoming tide, topping out at 2.0 feet before midnight. If you aren’t familiar with the area's shallow waters, by all means don’t stray from the marked channel pathway or you may experience ...

Fishing | Weekend’s expected stormy weather could change fishing plans

Looks to be a good weekend for sailing but not so much for angling which is a shame as sheepshead and snapper-loaded nearshore reefs await your chum and baits. Wild weather might also keep king and Spanish mackerel anglers from catching both species, which are presently feeding from just off ...

Fishing | Nearshore reefs holding a wide variety of fish

Nearshore reefs are hosting quite a few varieties of fish, including delicious snapper with lots of hungry sheepshead mixed in. Expect to continue to find Spanish macs and kings together from the passes to out past the nearshore reefs. The kingfish aren’t big with most less than a yard long ...

Fishing | Changing weather conditions means changing fishing techniques

Like fish, anglers have to adapt to changing conditions to continue to be successful. Maintaining a positive attitude is also another important tool in your mental tackle box and another important key to a productive day on the water. Most anglers don’t like wind but instead of cursing the ...

Fishing | Dreams of a new boat, pickup and more…

I was dreaming that since Christmas is right around the corner and I’m currently between boats that I should treat myself right so I walked into my local Pathfinder dealer and plunked down a $140,000 for a new 2600 HPS bay boat. Happy with my purchase I decided to double my pleasure so I ...

Fishing | Push-poles and being stealthy

Be it an old dented-in and leaking 10-foot duck boat, a modern high-end hi-tech saltwater skiff, a kayak or even a shiny new metalflake lake rocket bass boat, they all share one item of equipment – a push pole. Stealth equals angling success and in some cases thousands of dollars in ...
