The Crazy, Weird, and Wonderful World of Fishing

by Capt. Kevin Faver, Capt. Kirk Waltz, and Jeff Lageman

With Jeff still on vacation in Alaska, Jacksonville University’s Dr. Quinton White stopped by to give us the scientific reasoning behind all the crazy things and amazing fishing that’s been happening in and around Jacksonville. He also cleared up widespread confusion about the multitude of differences between tide and current, which made all of us question what we had learned!  Dr. White also shared some details about the river reef project that Jacksonville University is conducting; it’s a multi-year research project, and he needs fishermen to help him conduct his research.  If you’re interested in helping, please contact Dr. White at qwhite@ju.edu .

This episode also featured tip after tip for catching everything that is swimming around in our waters these days, including kingfish, flounder, mangrove snapper, pompano, and more. And if that wasn’t enough, Kirk shared his thoughts about things happening at the beach that angered a few paddleboarders…be sure to listen in on the back and forth!

Be sure to follow us on Facebook for great stuff all week…and be sure to send us your own great pics, stories, and questions.  We’d love to hear from you!



Every boat owner or hunter has a story about how they got a flat on their trailer or their ATV, and it completely ruined their outdoor adventure.  To make sure this NEVER happens again, Kirk presented the Slime Moto Spair Flat Tire Kit as the Gear Tip of the Week.  For under $30, you can seal the puncture made by that nail (or whatever it was) with their patented sealant, and then refill the tire with the included tire inflator.  The kit is small enough to fit anywhere, but as Kirk noted, the bag has enough room to stash a couple of additional tools if needed.  Pick yours up at Walmart (or, for another $10, snag the kit that handles car and truck tires, too).




You’ve spent a king’s ransom on gear…don’t forget to take care of it!  Both Kirk and Kevin have seen many cleaners come and go, but Kirk swears by Penn Rod and Reel Cleaner.  Although it’s a little more expensive than other cleaners, it performs better than any other brand the guys have tried.  In addition to cleaning the rod and reel of debris, it prevents salt from building up on it, making subsequent cleanings even more effective.  An added bonus: it doesn’t feel slimy or oily to the touch, either.  Pick up a 12oz bottle at Walmart or other fine stores for $7-$10.
