OS 1156: I Can See Clearly Now…

It’s amazing what happens when the weather breaks, isn’t it?  The guys had A LOT to talk about, since the weather has started to cooperate and they got some beautiful, warm, sunny days to play with!

If you want everything outdoors, from fishing to turkeys, from sheds to snipe hunting (yes, you read that correctly), this is the one for you.

PLUS: get details on how you can have fun catching some big bass, win some big money, and make a BIG impact in the community (visit for details)!

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week: Right now the water temperature is still cold and the fish aren’t motivated to move. Whether you’re fishing for sheepshead, reds, trout are whatever you have to think slow! Whatever you are using for bait make sure your presentation is really slow. Also don’t be quick to up and move to another spot. Make sure you give every spot plenty of time!


Fishing Forecast: Water Woes and Fun Bites

Interesting show this week as the guys were talking all about the fun fishing…even in the LOUSY water that’s hanging around inshore.  Of course, it all depends on where you go, and if you’re up for the offshore fun, you’ll have a ball – unless you go in the drink.  Find out why, and get your forecast, too!


OS 1155: One Fun, Hot Mess

What do you get when you mix three outdoors guys (and one goofy producer) with a huge catered breakfast from Moe’s Southwest Grill?   A DELICIOUSLY HOT MESS!

To be honest, it kind of fits, considering the weather we’ve been experiencing here on the First Coast!  In this episode, the guys talk about how crazy it’s been, how good it’s going to be, and more.

But it really was a hot mess, and quite a bit of fun at that!  Where else do you get outdoors talk, food reviews, coverage of the Bassmasters’ tournament in Palatka, and comedy clips from Jerry Clower and pro bass angler Gerald Swindle.

Although the topics were all over the map, the entertainment was solid from start to finish.  Enjoy!

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc. cooking tip of the week: Skillet Breakfast Potatoes

Use a leftover baked potato and cut into medium sized pieces. Lay flat side down in oiled cast iron skillet on medium high heat with some cut up sweet onion. Let simmer for 3-4 minutes and then turn to brown the other side. Smother with cheddar cheese and turn the heat off to let it slowly melt into the potatoes. Salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!!

OS 1154: Rain, Rain…GO AWAY!

With Capt. Kirk out of town celebrating his anniversary (CONGRATS, KIRK!!!!!), Fishing Forecast co-host Capt. Scott “Bobo” Shank joined Capt. Kevin and Jeff to try to put the best spin on an altogether terrible run of rainy, stormy, foggy weather.

The guys also talked about the CRAZY boating accident involving a 53-ft boat…and a WHALE, as well as the comparison between televised golf and bass tournaments!

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week: Tired of wimpy belts that stretch and don’t last? Get a Hanks belt! Great belts also for conceal carry!  Go to to get yours.

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week: Inshore fishing has been slow at best. The one fish that has been prevalent is the yellow mouth trout. Look for deep drop offs and clean water. Best bait is a live shrimp, mud minnow or Fishbites.

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc. cooking tip of the week:

Madison’s Pan Fried Trout

1lb of fresh trout filets
Cup of Wonder Flour
Cup of corn starch
2tbs garlic powder
1/4 tbs of seasoning salt
1/4 tbs of paprika
3 eggs
Peanut or Coconut Oil

Wash trout filets lightly and allow to drain. Beat the eggs in a bowl till thoroughly mixed. Mix flour and corn starch together adding seasoning salt, paprika, and garlic powder. Dredge trout in eggs shaking excess off and add to flour mixture. Set aside on a plate. Heat oil in skillet on stove on medium heat using about a 1/2 in of oil in pan. Add trout and pan fry till golden on one side careful to turn it when its done. Remove when both sides are golden brown. Remove and place on pastry screen to allow excess oil to drain off. This will keep it extra crispy. Allow some cooling and serve.


Fishing Forecast: Foggy and Soggy

This week, the guys talk about the incredibly thick fog that seemed to settle on the First Coast all week, and how it – along with the dreary weather and goofy temps – had fish in trouble and captains in a tizzy.  Will it continue?  And will the gnats continue to feast on us?  You’ll get all the answers, along with some stories and fun on this episode.


OS 1153: The Weather Outside Is Frightful…

The guys were huddled up in the studio this week, seeking some shelter from the nasty rain that had descended upon the First Coast.  With no end in sight, they talked about how to deal with downright crappy weather.

Here’s your L.V. Hiers gear tip of the week: Kevin just got his new fishing gloves for the 2021 season: Adventure Gloves from The Fishing Tree. This is his second pair and he loves them!

Here’s your Ring Power CAT tip of the week: Kevin had Noah Vogelsong come out with a Cat mulching machine to do some work on his property and it was amazing!

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc. cooking tip of the week: An amazing fish dish from Captain Geoff Stamm

Cover fish (snapper or grouper) with Tony Chachere’s or Old Bay, pepper and garlic salt in a bowl. Cover in mayonnaise and separate in a glass shallow pan. Cover with zest of Lemon, bread crumbs and Parmesan. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes and then broil for 1 minute.


Fishing Forecast: Do You Gheenoe?

Don’t know how you answer that question, but Capt. Scott says, “Yes I do Gheenoe!”  He talked with Capt. Kevin about his recent gheenoe adventures while doing some shallow water fishing.  He had a lot of fun, so be sure to listen to his stories.  And you also might want to listen in for the upcoming forecast…maybe it’s time for you to gheenoe!
