OS 1110: You Can’t Quarantine Fish

The guys were back in the Outdoors Show St. Augustine Studios location this week, and they had A LOT of fishing to talk about!  The weather continues to amaze, and the fishing is CRAZY good all along the First Coast, both in-shore and offshore.  Lots of OS fans joined in the fun with stories of their own, too!

Unfortunately, the weather that made for such great fishing made for some absolutely useless turkey hunting time.  And in Georgia, after all the rain and the early summer temperatures, everything is out of whack.

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week from Captain Kevin: The PERFECT pompano rig available NOW at Strike Zone! Also available in St. Augustine at Oldest City Bait and Tackle and Genungs Tackle.

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week from Captain Kirk: He says this right here is THE BEST Spanish lure he has found…the Shock Wave Tsunami Pro!

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc cooking tip of the week: Can’t find what you want at the grocery store!? Problem solved: Fresh catch tacos! Try using fresh baked corn tortillas and some mango salsa – and you have to have our favorite Mezzetta jalapeños on top too!


Fishing Forecast – Something’s Fishy…

Do you smell that?  Well, if you were in the Moe’s Fishing Forecast St. Augustine Studios (yes, that’s a thing), you would DEFINITELY smell it.  With a late tide, Capt. Kevin  and Capt. Scott barely got off the boat and into the studio for this episode.  So, if you’re looking for the most timely fishing forecast, you have come to the right place!


OS 1109: Dealing With It

There’s no doubt that the Coronavirus, and the fallout from it, is at the top of everyone’s minds.  The guys were no different, so it naturally dominated the conversation, and when it didn’t, it still affected things.

It’s not all gloom and doom, though – thanks to the amazing weather, the fishing is downright amazing.  Capt. Kevin and Capt. Kirk had an amazing week here, and Jeff had a great time in the Keys earlier this week.  You can check out all of their stories this episode.

It’s also the start of turkey season in Georgia, so there was a lot of turkey talk, too.

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week from Captain Kirk: Pogies were sighted yesterday. Pack your cast nets!

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week from Captain Kevin: I bottom fished this week and the current was very strong. Most anglers just immediately go to more weight on the lead. Sometimes the best thing to do is go to a little lighter tackle. That way it’s easier for you to feel the bottom!

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc. cooking tip of the week: PLEASE support your local restaurants like Angie’s Subs! Tune in for an update on both restaurants…Jeff just spoke with them last night. Here’s the link to order directly from Angies:


Fishing Forecast – Best March EVER????

Yeah, yeah.  Stay home.  Wash your hands. Don’t hug strangers.  Practice social distancing, whatever that is.  It’s enough to drive you CRAZY.  Especially if you love to fish!  Well, go fish, because Capt. Kevin has reason to believe this may very well be the best March for fishing he has ever seen!  Capt. Scott gives his two cents, along with the usual suspects, and you get all the info you need to have a great weekend…even if it’s a pretty tough one everywhere else.


OS 1108: Fishing, Fowl and Fools

What a week!  The guys had a lot going on, and there was a lot going on all over the place.  They had to talk fishing, of course, because the weather has gotten so much better.  Both Capt. Kevin and Capt. Kirk talked about the trout fishing in Jacksonville and St. Augustine, but things picked up when Trina stopped in to put the wraps on El Cheapo 2020…and you might just hear some gloating from one Mr. Lageman.  Just sayin’…

As for the fowl, the guys had turkey hunting on their minds, of course, so there was plenty of chatter about that.

Finally, there was no escaping talk about the coronavirus and how it’s affecting things in the world of hunters and anglers.  The good thing is this: every sporting event maybe cancelled or postponed, every concert and show may have been sandbagged, but we can still do our thing in the outdoors.  With that said, what exactly is up with the mayor deciding to close Jacksonville parks?  After listening, you may get a better idea of why we’ve got “fools” in the title…

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week… When you can’t find TP… get Dude Wipes! Captain Kirk and Kevin love them! Dude!!!

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week… Having low tides in the early morning hours and very little wind this weekend… it’s a great opportunity to find big schools of reds on the edge of the main river. If you ease down the main ditch and see a school of reds pushing… go past them and shut the engine down. Go back to them with the trolling motor!

Here’s this week’s Kirbyco Builders Inc cooking tip of the week. We have always suggested mixing a little yellow mustard in with mayo to coat fresh fish before coating with panic or ritz crackers and baking…but this week we tried something different. We mixed in a little something special in place of the yellow mustard and it made our standard recipe turn into SUPERSTAR recipe status!! Can you guess what it is!? Listen to Jeff reveal the big secret!



Fishing Forecast – Change Is Good! Sorta…

The captains are back, and just like everybody else, they’re talking about…FISHING.  Nothing but!  This episode is all about changes.  The good change: the weather has shaped up beautifully, and it’s exactly what the First Coast needed to set the stage for a great spring.  The not-so-good change: according to Capt. Kevin, it’s the stinking time change that has really screwed with him this time around.  How ’bout you?

OS 1107: LIVE from the El Cheapo

Everybody loves a good competition, and everybody loves it when Jeff and Capt. Kirk start going back and forth about who’s going to out-fish who in the El Cheapo.  Well, today’s the day, and Kirk and Jeff were out of the studio and on the water to find out who can land the biggest sheepshead.  They both checked in to pass along the latest updates…and continue the smack talk!

Since they were on the water, Capt. Kevin was joined by his Moe’s Southwest Grill Fishing Forecast co-host, Capt. Scott Shank and Capt. Chip Wingo.  They set up shop at Consignment Boat Sales and set to figuring out how the teams were going to navigate the weather, which was going to make things tough.  Nothing like fishing in the chill, and with gusts up to 30 mph, it’s gonna go straight to the bone!

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week: The Toadfish Outfitters Non-Tipping Can Cooler is one of the coolest products Captain Kevin has seen in a long time! You have to check out the video:

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week: It’s getting to be that time of year when throwing artificial can be very productive! But sometimes you have to change colors, size etc to find what the fish want that day. Use small sealable containers like this for storage and organizing!

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc. cooking tip of the week: How do you like your sheepshead cooked? Our favorite way is to bread it and bake it…
