Captiva Surf Fishing Contest: Me Vs. My Six Year Old
I may not be great at catching big fish, or certainly trophy fish.  Heck, at age 42 I have only three citation fish to my name (chain pickerel, black crappie, and spotted bass).   But give me some basic tackle and a tiny bit of local knowledge (seasonal mov...

63 Hour Offshore Trip with Hubbards Marine - An Odd Trip I Can't Stop Thinking About
Earlier this year I was able to cash in on a personal favor and was able to join some friends for a 4 (ish) day offshore trip out of the Tampa area.    Those who know me and this blog know that while I fish a lot,  the average amount of time I spend fishing...

Snook Attack with Native Salt Charters in Sarasota County
Anyone who's followed this blog over the years knows that my son burns like a blowtorch stuck on full blast.  He's a non-video game playing, swimming, climbing, running fool.  We've fished together since he was about two, and at six, I'd say he's mildly int...
Anyone who's followed this blog over the years knows that my son burns like a blowtorch stuck on full blast. He's a non-video game playing, swimming, climbing, running fool. We've fished together since he was about two, and at six, I'd say he's mildly interested in the sport.

What's Up in the Rainy Mid-Atlantic Outdoors?
So apparently changing all of one's computers, cell phones, and office address in a 90 day period is not helpful for the production of digital content.   Check. It has been an interesting spring for Mid-Atlantic Outdoorsmen and women.    The oft-maligned EP...

My Kingdom for a Landfill - Baltimore's Next Environmental Quandary
The City of Baltimore has had many landfills over the last two centuries.  The Port of Baltimore's waste generation and storage goes back further - to 1706!  But in 2016, only one landfill for the City's 650,000 residents, thousands of businesses, and dozen...

What Does Virginia HB1329 Mean for Virginia Houndsmen?
Last week, Virginia House Bill 1329,  expressly penalizing those hunters who intentionally release hounds on "prohibited lands" - land where they have no permission to hunt - sailed through the esteemed Virginia House of Delegates with a 99-0 vote.   A comp...

I Done Gone and Built a Tree House
Living in the I-95 corridor is something special sometimes when it comes to property management.   If you need to replace a toilet and you are on public sewer, that'll be a $400 permit (or a $2000 fine) (90 days to review permit).  Want to build a fence?  $...

6 Steps to Prep for My 15th Year of Bowhunting
Well, it's almost here.  I mean, that's almost my sentiment at this point.   It's not disillusionment with bow hunting, or the outdoors.  Certainly not the latter.   But at age 42, and 15 years after I first took a bow into the woods (what a clown I was!), ...

Creating an Impact in a World of Fauxtrage and Faketivism
I'm one of those people .  I read Supreme Court oral argument records.  I read science journals and business journals.  I read things I don't agree with, and discuss them (sometimes in person - gasp!) with people who don't agree with me (which means sometim...

Bigger and Better: My Changes for the 2016-2017 Archery Season
2015 was truly the year that I fell in love with archery.  All it took was the right bow and some patience.  I say those two things like they were simple, but they were not.   While I saw fewer total deer in the woods in 2015-2016 than I did the previous hu...

Ecologist, Writer, Outdoorsman.
Introduction
Thanks for checking out my profile!  I live and breathe the outdoors, and I hope it shows in my rants, tall tales, and indulgent photography.  I work as a habitat restoration project manager and a part-time college professor, currently teaching Environmental Science.   I've lived all my life in the American Mid-Atlantic and I seek both adventure and peace on its rivers, forests, and marshes.  I share it all with my wife Amy and son Hank.
