This is part 1 of 2 shows. Captain Keiland and Allen Wyatt talk about the pleasures aof catching Bass and Bluegill on the fly. How many of us drive by great lakes and ponds onthe way to fish. In Central Florida, there are literally hundreds. And it is a great way to get your kids fishing too.
One of our most informative shows with Captain Rick Grassett from Sarasota, Florida. He fishes nearshore and inshore in the late fall and catches several species that are great fun and tackle busters. Allen and Rick discuss the fun of catching ‘trash’ fish; and about Rick’s recent tournament which helped raise funds for Mangrove Coast Fly Fishers and CCA.
Most important are Captain Rick’s methods of using and rigging DOA jigs and plastics as well as the Rapala Skitterwalk. And also, the secret fly-Grasset’s Snook Minnow:

Captain Keiland raps up the show with new gear reviews from Rail Riders and Rhodan trolling motors.
Our friend, Mike Rathjen has been catching some monster Redfish in Mosquito Lagoon this fall. It has been so good, that they filmed a TV show! Recently Mike picked up a fly rod with great succes. He suggests several flies that have been working well. And he shares some of the places on Mosquito Lagoon that are producing monster redfish. The guys have a great time joking around in this show.
Captain Rick Grasset joins the Awesome Fishing Radio Crew to talk about Snook Fishing. Capt. Grassett fishes from Tampa Bay North to Charlotte Harbor South with most of his fishing done in the Sarasota area. He is an Orvis Endorsed guide and works with CB Outfitters. While we know him as a fly fishing guide he is equally good with light tackle. This show features insight into night time snook fishing and what flies and to use, and salt water light tackle fishing. We spend some time on redfish and gator trout and how they can be a pleasant bonus when mixed into our snook fishing.
