OS 1152: Doin’ It On The Fly

The boys were back together for this episode, and they had plenty of stories to go around.  The biggest story came from Capt. Kevin, who gave us the rundown on his amazing fly fishing trip in North Carolina.  WAY too many details to list here, which means…this is another MUST LISTEN show!

As always, a bunch of the OS faithful called in to share stories of their own.  But you’ve got to check out the call from our friend Dave Edwards, who shared an incredible Alabama buck story…and don’t miss OS HOFer reciting poetry!

Fishing Forecast: Cold Winter, Hot Spring?

Although today was pretty nice, Capt. Kevin and Capt. Scott were focused on the chilly temps we’ve been seeing on the First Coast.  In previous years, they noted that cold winters routinely brought about some great spring fishing.  But will it hold true this year?  They talk about it, bring in Capt. Rookie Robbie to add his two cents, and of course, they give you the skinny on the upcoming forecast.


OS 1151: Fishin’ and Freezin’

With Kevin up in NC doing some serious OSR, Jeff and Capt. Kirk held down the fort and took care of show duties.  Lots of fishing talk to kick things off, and we even got into fiddler crab preservation (that was a surprisingly interesting little chat!).

Kevin did check in, though, and he had some great stories about his trip…although it might be hard to understand because his teeth wouldn’t stop chattering.  It’s COLD in North Carolina!!

Lots of great conversation, too…not sure how we got into car talk, but it sure was fun to get the skinny on Kirk’s VW Microbus!

Here’s your L.V. Gear tip of the week: For you turkey hunters that struggled with a mouth call, the Mini Mag by Quaker Boy helped Kirk. He ordered online for $15.

Here’s your Kirbyco Builders Inc. Cooking tip of the week: Use Blues Hog sweet & savory rub from Hagan Ace Hardware on de-boned chicken thighs with *skin on*!! You can spread them out nice and flat so the skin gets extra extra crispy. Cook on the smoker at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. BEST CHICKEN EVER!


Fishing Forecast: A Long Winter’s Nap

Capt. Kevin was out of town on vacation (although we’re sure he’s putting in some OSR time), which meant Capt. Scott took the helm and brought in his first mate, Capt. Chip Wingo to handle the business in this episode.  Although the weather’s been pretty good, those fish are just struggling to get their mouths open, aren’t they?  The guys talk about those sleepy suckers, the water temps, and of course, they let you know the forecast for the upcoming week.


OS 1150: Big Bucks, Scary Snakes, and Potty Talk

As the Outdoors Show rolls into 2021, Jeff rolled out of town to Georgia once again.  This time, he was there to try to get some controlled burning and prep the land for the upcoming year.

While Jeff was looking to burn, Capt. Kirk was lowering the boom on a great buck!  Listen to his fantastic story about one of the best hunts in his hunting history.

If that wasn’t enough, the show went crazy with stories about snakes, funny noises, and bathroom etiquette.  Yeah, things went sideways…AGAIN.

Fishing Forecast: New Year, New Weather?

Although everyone was all done toasting, kissing, and singing to ring in 2021, this episode marked the first show of 2021 for Capt. Kevin and Capt. Scott.  But the question is this: should we hope for new, better weather while we’re hoping for new and better everything else this year?  Listen in to find out…


OS 1149: Happy New Year!

So, we’re not going to bury the lead – Happy New Year!  It goes without saying that the first show of 2021 focused on, well, 2021…and everyone’s expectations, hopes, resolutions, and more.

Fishing Forecast: Out With The Old…

It was the last show of 2020, and Capt. Kevin finished up in grand style…by staying at his hunting property in Georgia!  But that didn’t phase Capt. Scott, who called on our good friend Capt. Chip Wingo to sit in and talk about the difference between the weather forecast and what actually happened.  It was a mixed bag by the day, but the important question is this: what’s in store for First Coast anglers this week as we limp into 2021?  Listen in to find out.


OS 1148: The Big Chill

With temperatures in the 30s, the guys managed to shiver their way to the studio for the show.  Well, except for Jeff, who was up in Georgia dealing with temps in the 20s!

As you would guess, the show kept coming back to the gear and the tips you need to get you through the chilly side of the outdoors experience.

Fishing Forecast: Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful…

Just a couple days shy of Christmas, Capt. Kevin and Capt. Scott were talking about the VERY chilly weather fixing to show up on the First Coast.  But how is the changing weather going to affect the fishing?  The answer – and the forecast – may surprise you.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!
