Baby, It's Cold Outside

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

The final Saturday of 2017 was a chilly one, which led the guys to talk about some cold outdoor adventures.  Kirk shared some of the details of Outdoors Dream Week – he was either hunting or fishing every day!  Kevin also had a chance to head up to his property and check out some cameras; he got to see what deer do when they aren’t annoyed by humans for three weeks!

We also got some great questions from callers about tipping charter captains and boat trading/selling.  If that wasn’t enough, the guys also had a chance to talk about some interesting happenings on the water: a cargo ship headed out of Jacksonville that dropped a bunch of cargo containers into the drink, and a 20′ boat that turned up on top of the Mayport Rocks.  It was some great information, speculation, and led to some important tips for boaters and anglers.

Finally, all of us would like to wish you a very happy, healthy, and prosperous 2018.  Happy New Year!

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!

It’s the end of the year, which means the cold weather is here…and most of your engines are going into hibernation.  But during the down time, a lot of bad things can happen inside a motor.  That’s why the guys all use – and highly recommend – Sea Foam.  Yes, this stuff has been their Gear Tip before, and with good reason: it’s the best motor treatment on the market.

Use in Gasoline, Ethanol, and Diesel Fuels – Sea Foam adds upper cylinder lubricity and restores lost engine power by dissolving petroleum residues from fuel injectors/carburetors, valves and chambers.

Use in Engine Oil – In 4-stroke gas or diesel, adding Sea Foam Motor Treatment cleans engine crankcases by liquefying harmful deposits that form and accumulate between oil and filter changes.

Use for Intake Cleaning – Sea Foam Spray Top Engine Cleaner & Lube is specially designed to deliver a high concentration of petroleum cleaning solvency to gasoline air intake systems.


Owning a boat is great…until it isn’t.  Any boat owner will tell you that you can expect all kinds of problems, especially if you don’t do the maintenance you should on it.  To that end, the guys recommend you call the pros to keep your boat in the best shape: our friends at Atlantic Coast Marine and Waylen Bay Marine.  The service departments know their stuff, no matter what brand of equipment you’ve got, and their level of customer service cannot be bested anywhere.  Take care of your boat now so you can maximize the fun next season!

French Toast Casserole w/ Challa Bread


1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 loaf of challa bread
2 cups milk
6 eggs
1 pinch cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Grease a 9x12-inch baking dish.
  2. Stir 1 cup brown sugar and butter together in a saucepan over medium-low heat until butter melts and sugar dissolves into butter, 2 to 4 minutes. Pour into prepared baking dish and spread a 1 1/2- to 2-inch layer of bread pieces over the top.
  3. Beat milk, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a bowl; pour milk mixture over bread into the baking dish and move bread as necessary to ensure all bread is absorbing liquid. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Remove and discard plastic wrap from baking dish and sprinkle remaining brown sugar over the top of the bread mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and bubbling, about 30 minutes.
