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 thefathersheart.us 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!


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 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.


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!

OS 1152: 43 MauMau! Tater Tot! Omaha!

PEANUT BUTTER FIRST.  We all know that, if you’re putting peanut butter and honey on toast, the peanut butter goes on there first, right?  Could somebody please explain that to Jeff? LOL

The episode went sideways right out of the gate, as Jeff was ALL ABOUT the audible – he switched up the tides and weather, and threw out the KirbyCo Cooking Tip of the Week right away.  He’s really got a thing about toast!  Anyway, the show didn’t really ever get straightened out, either…but let’s be honest – sideways is the best kind of Outdoors Show!  This episode turned out to be one of the funniest shows on record, so you definitely need to listen to this one.

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!

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!

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.
