It’s Frosty Out There – The first week in January confirmed that winter will come once again….5 – 6 nights straight with temperatures in the 30’s and 40’s….more than likely the coldest stretch of nights we’ll see this year. From a fishing guide’s perspective, that simply t more…
We were always VERY happy however to return to ‘our’ house and enjoy family time. There were also LOTS of things to do in our very picturesque back yard. The house backs onto Tarpon Bayou and our family fished, paddle boarded, canoed and kayaked making very good use of all the recreational ‘toys’ provided with the house. We enjoyed lots and lots of time in the pool and the hot tub as well as just hanging out on the patio around the pool. Even though the house is located on a corner lot beside a fairly busy street, the back yard is very private and allowed us to relax in our own piece of Florida paradise.

Beginning in the early 1980s after federal and state legislation to improve water quality, authorities installed improved water treatment plants and tightened regulation of industrial discharge, leading to slow but steady improvement in water quality and general ecological health. By 2010, measures of sea grass coverage, water clarity, and biodiversity had improved to levels last seen in the 1950s.

Norwegen ist für viele der Inbegriff des schweren Meeresangelns. Nur wenige wissen, dass dort auch Raubfisch-Fans mit leichtem Tackle eine Menge Spaß im Salzwasser haben. Pollacks sind vielleicht die Königsfische der leichten Meeresangelei im modernen Raubfisch-Stil!

Kapitale Hechte können eine Länge von 1,5m bei einem Körpergewicht von 35kg erreichen. Solche kapitalen Hechte stehen als Einzelgänger gut getarnt zwischen den Pflanzen dicht unter der Wasseroberfläche, wo sie auf ihre Beute lauern. Jüngere Hechte können auch schon einmal beobachtet werden, wie sie kleinen Trupps durchs freie Wasser in Ufernähe vorbeiziehen. Mit 3 bis 4 Jahren erreichen diese die Geschlechtsreife.
“Earlier this month a friend and I chartered Capt Brian Brown for some fishing. Even though the weather was cold, we caught a large number of bass and catfish. Capt Brown knew where the hot spots were and made the trip memorable. I will use Brian in the future and gladly recommend him to others. Steve”
Johannes Braith aus Österreich kommt kaum noch ans Wasser, da er sich selbstständig gemacht hat. Doch sein erster Fisch 2017 ist auch gleich ein echter Paukenschlag: Der 25 Kilo schwere Spiegler biss auf einen Mainline Peaches & Cream Wafter.
“He had a solid season and definitely helped improve his stock, but he is not in the Rays top 30. The lack of track record offensively, and his corner outfield profile make you raise an eyebrow. The more exciting prospect in Hudson Valley’s outfield was Angel Moreno.”
Archaeological evidence indicates the shores of Tampa Bay were inhabited by indigenous peoples for thousands of years. The Safety Harbor culture developed in the area around the year 1000 AD, and the descendant Tocobaga and Pohoy chiefdoms were living in or near the current city limits of Tampa when the area was first visited by Spanish explorers in the 16th century. Interactions between native peoples and the Spanish were brief and often violent, and although the newcomers did not stay for long, they introduced European diseases which brought the collapse of native societies across the Florida peninsula over the ensuing decades. Although Spain claimed all of Florida and beyond as part of New Spain, it did not found a colony on the west coast. After the disappearance of the indigenous populations, there were no permanent settlements in the Tampa Bay area until after the United States acquired Florida from Spain in 1821.
After purchasing Florida from Spain in 1821, the United States built forts and trading posts in the new territory. Fort Brooke was established in January 1824 at the mouth of the Hillsborough River on Tampa Bay, in Downtown Tampa.

Zu aller Letzt möchte ich darauf hinweisen, dass es keinen Sinn hat mit einem sehr teurem Rod Pod durch die Gegend zu spazieren und nicht zu wissen, wie man richtig damit umgeht. Ich mag Rod Pods sehr gerne, benutze mein eigenes aber vielleicht zu 10% meiner Angeltouren.
