Yesterday with Howard and Drew

Yesterday I fished with Howard Davis as his guest with Captain Drew Delashmit. We started at 8:00, and upon our arrival at our first place found a great many tarpon tucked behind the early light. We saw fish roll and bust, and once the sun got high enough to see into the water we were…

Yesterday with Ray and Fitz

Yesterday I fished with Captain Ray Fetcher and Fitz Coker. Being on the boat with these two is a serious pleasure, as between them they have more tarpon experience than I could ever hope to see in a lifetime. We started by looking in the wind and clouds for some fish, though after a few…

The last two days

Yesterday and the day prior I fished with John O’Hearn and my mother, Vicky Linville. If you keep up with these pages, you’re familiar with Vick, and can see some pictures of her in the gallery from her recent trip to the Seychelles. It’s worth mentioning that she’s a stellar angler, though for the two…

Updating, upcoming, a nice capture

I’ve been busy so the reports have suffered. Last week, I fished with Doug Kilpatrick for two days. On the second, we were joined by Dave Dalu. Day One: Doug and I woke up in the teeth of a cold front that had parked on the lower Keys, and while the fishing was likely going…
