 I always enjoy gazing at the pile of slabs as we motor back in. This charter captain is known for finding better grade of fish than most the fleet.

Thanks for showing us your ideas about experienced Charter Skippers, Ted —

However, I think a true professional as yourself — keeps getting keener by observing others — both about what to do — and what not to do.

We learn from both camps.

“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.”

 It is always a humbling experience to come back home empty handed when there is fish being caught by others I know.

 I felt so ashamed one day, I had asked my brother and his friend "big Steve" to hold up their fish for a picture. They musta thought I was going nuts. I repeated my request to hold up the fish we should have caught....They laughed and held their prized invisible catch for the day.

 I was able to redeem myself the next Saturday and this time the fish were not invisible. To this day the invisible fish pic is one of my favorites and always reminds me that catching fish is never a sure thing, but I will never give up trying !!

Ted its the same here in the Gulf of Mexico. If you don’t have good numbers you ain’t catching. A lot is learned on technique also. Ive pulled up to a well known Snapper spot where they weren’t catching and started loading the boat. They were all bottom fishing. We were fishing on top with spinning reels and light tackle. Chum and they will come..!!

 Another benefit of charter fishing is you get to pose with the big fish even if someone else caught it  Grin Grin

 It's always a bonus when it's my fish and my cleaning table in that picture.  Wink Wink

  To mr. Ted.  Your Salmon is a prize that 90 % or more folks will never catch.   You are the man.   We just keep rebooking.
    Charter fishing is the best.... no fuss... keep going... keep spending..  they fix the boat.. if you have the money they have the time...
i,m green with envy.... just wish i had a job!!!!! Cool    thanks for sharing your experiences,  we are here to learn.
