Peace, Quiet And Fall Freshwater Kayak Fishing…

Pictured above: To increase the odds of a successful outing, choose bodies of water with good populations of fish that are active in cold water. In September, I dedicated quite a bit of time to chasing false albacore. I chased after recent fishing reports, chased tides that gave up fish ...

The Lazy Man’s Rigged Eel…

I think most surfcasters can relate when I say that I have a love-hate relationship with live eels. I love how well they work on big fish and I love how conveniently I can bring them along with me. I do not love how the price has jumped to $2.25 ...

The autumn striped bass run comes on like an insatiable mistress, demanding all an angler’s time and money, putting a strain on his marriage, derailing domestic obligations, alienating the fisherman from the family. Saltwater temperatures keep falling and induce the now-or-never anxiety that makes you take up the rod one ...

Seasick Swords…

Anybody who tells you they have never been seasick simply hasn’t been in rough enough seas. As a hardened salt, I’ve never actually been seasick before. Sure, I’ve felt queasy in 6- to 8-footers with diesel fumes spewing into my face, but never had I dry heaved or vomited. That ...

Pictured above: With winter not long off, this flathead catfish couldn’t wait for full dark to start feeding. After briefly interrupting its late-fall feast, Joe Cermele returned the fish to the slow-moving currents of the Susquehanna, where, in a few years, it may challenge the Pennsylvania state record. I’ve fished ...
