Welcome to The Bonefish Flat

There's a stiff wind in your face as you squint in the sun trying to see what the guide sees. "Bonefish at 12 o'clock about 90 feet, do you see it, mon?" You don't and keep squinting, your hat pulled low to keep the sun out of your eyes. "Bonefish at 11 o'clock 70 feet out. Come on man, do you see it?" As the guide is calmly shifting the skiff into position, this time you spot the fish, "I got, it," you reply.

"OK, Mon, Bonefish 50 feet at 10 o'clock. Cast when you're ready."

Cast when you're ready. And with that you drop your fly, roll out a cast, false cast once, and then...

Welcome to the bonefish flat.

Oh Lawd' I Got the Shakes

The Alabama Shakes, that is.  I scored their CD, Boys and Girls, this week and it's amazing.  Go get it if you don't already have it.  Britney Howard, the lead singer, absolutely just wails. I'm not going to compare it to anything because it's a blend of a lot of sounds I really like.

I found this video on the youtube and thus far it's my favorite song on the CD, although it's a solid album all the way through.

I hope everyone gets out on the water for the weekend.  I'm planning on hitting Lake X and catching the biggest bass you've ever seen.  I also have an interview in the works for next week that should be stellar.

Happy Memorial Day everyone and a big thank you to our troops who keep us safe and keep us free so we can go fishing.
