Where it all started . . .

Linda and I went to Jacksonville this weekend for our niece’s baby shower. While we were there we decided to visit Jacksonville University where we met 87 years ago. The surrounding area changed a lot but the campus was still as beautiful as it was back in the day, maybe even more so. When we […]

Wait, is that a . . . .

Launching your kayak from the beach to go fishing (often referred to as BTB or beyond the breakers) is not a simple task. Everyone thinks about the waves trying to flip you over, all that equipment sticking out weighing you down and threatening to become a beachside yard sale but one huge but often overlooked […]

Look at my Lizard Fish!

You’ve heard that thing about beauty being in the eye of the beholder? Turns out that theory works in a lot of different situations.

Perhaps I can use fishing to build an analogy. I go out on my kayak trying to catch a big snook or maybe a redfish, might as well haul in a […]

It starts to cloud up between 12-1, the wind also gets stronger, then there is about a 30% chance of rain between 2-5. This makes planning my kayak fishing easier. The wind tends to come from the same […]

Travelogue – Detours

We stay in the house of some good friends. It’s a block from the beach and there is a park 2 blocks away. A block in the other direction takes you to the bay where I go kayak fishing. The house has plenty of room, is nicely decorated and even has a garage where I […]

Travelogue – It’s all downhill from here

Just before we reach our destination for the night in the town of Midway west of Tallahassee we cross into the Eastern Standard Timezone and our 12.5 hours car trip quickly turns into 13.5 hours. We won’t mind going to bed early but we won’t be our usual chipper selves when 6AM rolls around. But […]
