OS1101: LIVE From The Jacksonville Boat Show

Capt. Kevin and Jeff were out of the mix to handle some OSR, so Capt. Kirk took the helm and docked the show at the Prime Osborn Convention Center for the 2020 Jacksonville Boat Show! Surrounded by beautiful boats, Kirk chatted it up with Capt. Scott Shank and a very special guest, Dr. Dave Edwards from Cabin Bluff!

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week: It’s time for ALL boat maintenance and getting geared up for Spring. Check the trailer bearings, get an oil change, check the batteries, and definitely DO NOT FORGET to check those trailer tires for wear!

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week: Please come down and join us at The JMA Boat Show this morning!

We use the late July thin and crispy tortilla chips (entire bag) spread out… top with meat of your choice (we used ground venison but rotisserie chicken is yummy too!) Make a homemade salsa of sweet onion, tomato, jalapeño, cilantro and lime juice the night before to sprinkle on the top of the meat (make sure you drain the salsa well before topping so it doesn’t make the chips soggy!) We also add more pickled jalapeños and then cover with a shredded Mexican cheese blend. Put in the oven on 350 for 20 mins or until cheese is melted. Enjoy!

OS1100: Closing Out the Season SIDEWAYS

For starters, Capt. Kirk was out…he stayed home to try to recover from the flu. So Capt. Kevin and Jeff handled the show this week, and spent some time wrapping up and reflecting on the season. However, because of the crazy weather, they couldn’t decide whether to talk more hunting or fishing! However, things went sideways IN A HURRY, and you will have to listen to the whole show to figure out if they ever got back on track!

The Xtratuf 6″ Ankle Deck Boot collection has been crafted specifically for Off-Shore anglers. Anglers are athletes, and like any athlete they need the best footwear to help them perform at a high level. We’ve created a lightweight design with the same slip-resistant Chevron outsole found in our Legacy boots. The performance ankle deck boot is the perfect boot for any on the water athlete looking for protection with slip-on-and-go styling. Get them at

Here’s your Kirby Co builders Inc cooking tip of the week: If you have garden fresh tomatoes like Jeff – here is one of the best ways to use them!  Easy Creamy Chicken Pasta Sauce: Use 1/4 cup of butter mixed with 1 tbsp minced garlic. Heat on medium… add in lots of chopped fresh garden tomatoes, jalapeño and sweet onion. (A can of medium rotel also works really well!) Stir until all are soft. Add in one whole rotisserie chicken shredded. Add 1 cup chicken stock. Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Add one extra large jar of Rao’s tomato sauce. Combine and cover to cook two more minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream and 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese. Let simmer for 5 minutes. Serve over pasta or rice.


OS1099: Switching Things Up

So what happens when Capt. Kirk and Jeff are BOTH out doing some OSR (Outdoors Show Research)? Capt. Kevin calls up his Moes Fishing Forecast co-host Capt. Scott Shank to join him. And then he calls the guy who fills in for him on the Forecast – Capt. Leon Dana! As you can imagine, there was a lot of fishing talk, and some crazy stories, too.

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week: Use this line stripper for removing line on your reel…Attached to your drill and it’s off in a few minutes! Only $10!

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week: Now that deer season is nearly over you need to remember where deer moved at each stand. It’s a great time of year to scout because deer sign is very visible… Also a perfect time to adjust and move stands accordingly!

Cowboy Caviar

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc cooking tip of the week: Cowboy Caviar is super easy to make and great for a crowd (especially for a crowd of hungry guys at a hunt camp!) It’s better if you let it sit for a day or two before eating. Serve with tortilla scoops so you can load up!

Fishing Forecast-January 8-New Decade, New Year…New Host?

Here we go, roaring into a new decade, a new year, and we are doing it without Capt. Kevin! Was he moving on? Had he gotten tired of working with Capt. Scott? OF COURSE NOT! He was off hunting, so Capt. Leon Dana sat in to talk about the fishing, the weather, and life in general.

OS1098: Welcome to 2020

The guys welcomed in the new year and the new decade with – what else – talking about the outdoors! The last chance for deer is here, so the guys had hunting on their minds. But you know how thoughts and people tend to wander…
