It’s Time to Say "So Long…"

I have been blessed!  I have been the guide here on About.com’s Saltwater Fishing site for almost 15 years.  It has been a thrill, but the time has come for me to hand the reins over to someone else.  Lots of issues are causing me to step down, the major one being my wife’s current battle with cancer.  I’ve made a lot of friends, met a ton of people, and tried to share my fishing knowledge with all of you.   I have had a ball!  Almost 15 years!  It’s been quite a ride for me.  Since 1998 I have been sharing my fishing experiences and knowledge with people around the world.  I will find it difficult to wake up every morning and not be checking and updating my site.

About.com is a great compilation of people – over 900 of them – who have a passion for their subject and a desire to share that passion with the world.  I will miss my friends at About.com, and I will  miss all my online fishing friends who email me regularly, and faithfully read my work.  I have so many people to thank, and the first in that thank-you line is Ronnie Garrison, About.com’s Freshwater Fishing Guide.

A new guide is standing in the wings to take over and provide new, fresh content and answers to your fishing questions.  I’ve made my recommendation, and the selection process is underway.  Until then, you will still see the site updated and you will still receive the weekly newsletter if you are subscribed.  So, hang in there!  And when the new guide is announced, I encourage all of you to welcome that person the way you always welcomed and encouraged me.

Redfish from a Canoe!

Here is a post from Curtis about fishing from his canoe:

I am 14 and love to fish. Usually I go offshore with my dad but I also surf fish. One day my fishing buddy and I decided it was calm enough to use my canoe in the surf. I would not recommend this to anyone who does not have experience in saltwater fishing and canoeing. First we hooked into what looked like a nine foot shark. It bit through the steel leader! Then we caught a few small reds under 30 inches. My friend was getting restless because we bet his uncle we would catch a fish large enough to spool most casual anglers. At about seven in the morning one of my clickers started to go off. Due to the fact that my clicker did not sing he thought it was a catfish. My gut told me it was not. Needless to say it wasn’t. The large fish began towing us around. I through out the fish anchor but it never caught in the mud and sand. The fish eventually tired out because of the thirty pound test line I was using, and it gave up and allowed us to put him in the canoe. I have had the joy of catching many, many, many bull reds over forty inches, but catching a forty-two inch red in a canoe is a memory I will never forget.

Curtis event sent us a picture. This fish was caught when he was 14 years old.  He’s 21 and in the US Coast Guard now, and the fish is hanging on his apartment wall.  Mounted, of course!
