Manatees Incorporated

  By Fred Garth We humans have a knack for killing off wild animals. Case in point: In 1741, somewhere in the Bering Sea, whale hunters discovered the Steller sea cow, a cousin of the manatee. Just 27 years later, it was gone, hunted into extinction for their meat and […]

The Dead Snapper Society

By Fred Garth The red snapper, a fish we love to catch and eat, has caused as much political wrangling, meetings of powerful people, controversial news stories and wadded up panties than the bungled mess in the Middle East. After the feds announced a paltry nine-day season from June 1-10, […]

Hobie kayak fishing pro, Morgan Promnitz got 15 miles offshore by Mother Shipping on the Flauna II (in background) to catch this blackfin tuna offshore from Pensacola. The onboard Big Green Egg was promptly fired up. Mmm good!

The Mothership Flauna

By Fred Garth Our plan had been percolating for at least a year. We were going to stack a bunch of Hobie kayaks on a big ass boat, blast far out into the Gulf of Mexico, throw the kayaks overboard and fish like crazed maniacs. It was my buddy, David […]

Bait Me

  By Fred Garth When we were still monkeys, we threw rocks to kill fish. Then we evolved from knuckle draggers into subhumans and used spears, nets and hunks of meat on pointy rocks. Now, in the age of Snapchat and robot vacuums, we humanoids have advanced to live bait. […]

Why I Believe in Responsible Fishing

Snapper Gate

Oh NO! Not another article about Lionfish

By Fred Garth If you’re like me, you’re tired of hearing about the lionfish invasion. It’s getting more press than Chris Christie’s Bridgegate scandal.
