Maybe a smaller boat is a better fit for your driveway and your budget – the Release 208 RX fits the bill. Just because you choose a shorter hull doesn’t mean you have to give up the features you want. A molded fiberglass inner liner with bow seating, stern seating and in-deck storage give you the feel of a much larger boat.
It’s peak season to begin finding a backwoods getaway to call your own. Here’s how to do it. The exchange between the landowner and the hunter can be difficult to navigate. Finding a lease, evaluating the property and negotiating terms all have their challenges. But finding a good lease is possible.
Despite the fun fishing we were enjoying, the Indian River and associated Mosquito Lagoon and Banana River have been in a sad state of affairs for a while. Three or four years ago, this slender, 150-mile long waterway on Florida’s east coast was full of rich seagrass.

High-leaping Atlantic sails gather at the northern end of Sailfish Alley in early winter. Ft. Pierce, at the north end of Sailfish Alley, heats up when temperatures drop. A walk down Fort Pierce docks reads like a Who’s Who list of sailfish chasers.
If you want your new boat to be more of a family cruiser that can also fish with the best of them, start up at the bow and look for wide cushions in a wraparound seating configuration. Throw in a removable picnic table and opposing seats on the front of the center console and you have a forward area set up for entertaining.
Any way you slice it, golf course ponds can be prime sites for hooking largemouths. I learned to enjoy the best of both worlds long ago as a caddy at the Doral Open in Miami. After lugging around the bag for Julius Boros during a practice round, we small-talked a bit until the conversation swung to our mutual fondness for fishing.
The Dusky 227 Open can be as simple or decked out as you want it to be – this particular boat was set-up with just the right amount of options you need to spend a day on the water fishing or diving. This makes it easy to clean at the end of the day and just as easy to maintain.
The historic Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina today announced a “Writer in Residence” program providing complimentary lodging for published writers. Lodging, in a cottage once occupied by Dr. Martin Luther King (if available), will be limited to three days-Monday through Wednesday, said Sales and Marketing Director Diana Weber.
Islamorada earned her place among bonefish and tarpon anglers, but today caters to a more diverse crowd. Recently I sampled the modern array of flats fishing possibilities out of Islamorada in the Florida Keys. I was on a two-day trip based at La Siesta Resort and Marina.
