OS 1128: Talking with the FWC’s Lt. Corey Bridwell

The boys had a lot to talk about on this episode – the great bait situation (until Saturday, anyway), royal red shrimp, some cool gear and great tips.  However, Kevin, Kirk, and Jeff were excited to talk with special guest Lt. Corey Bridwell from the FWC about all things Florida wildlife.

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week: Jeff doesn’t go anywhere without his Viair portable air compressor.

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week from Captain Kirk: He doesn’t go anywhere without his tire repair kit. $20 online!

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc. cooking tip of the week from Gordon: Great bang for your buck! Chuck eyes at 120° in hot tub (sous vide). Then 2 minutes in the skillet. A filet mignon doesn’t measure up!


Fishing Forecast – Shrimpies…and Post-Storm Fun

Shrimpies? Yeah, shrimpies.  Capt. Scott actually calls them ‘shrimpies’ in this episode!  Both he and Capt. Kevin know that shrimp are on the way, and they’re just itching to find a dock and throw a net for a couple of hours!  But aside from the dreaming, there was a lot of great fishing to talk about, thanks to the not-so-near miss from Tropical Storm Isaias.  And oh yeah – the captains have the forecast for you, too!


OS 1127: Texas, Turkey Talk, and Isaias

Jeff was back in the studio to talk about his trip to Texas – not only did he get to celebrate Papa Lageman’s 80th birthday, but he got to do a little OSR as well!

Of course, Hurricane Isaias – and it’s potential impact on the First Coast – was a major topic of conversation.  At this point, it’s looking like the majority of storms we see during the season, but you never know which way things could go.  Be careful!

Kevin was all fired up, saying it was “Christmas in August”.  Why?  It’s time to check the trail cams!  Yep – it’s time to start fishing AND hunting.  How are you getting ready?

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week: Jeff loves The Rope Ratchet because it’s strong and easy to use… So handy to have in a boat, truck, deer stand, or ATV. Get yours HERE

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week from Captain Kirk: Shark rigs made up for handy “set-n-go” behind the shrimp boats. 150 lb wire, 7/0 J-hook bronze.

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc. Cooking tip of the week: Chad at The Bearded Pig BBQ likes to use Butcher’s paper to ‘wrap’ Butts & Brisket about 2/3 the way through smoke time. It helps control heat and retains juices so the meat stays moist.
