Fishing Charter Whispers

man-fishing-on-a-lakeI’m an avid salt water fisherman, however, I read the following article in an old fishing magazine and thought it would be an interesting share.  I think it applies to fishermen everywhere ~ Captain Mike ~:

The age old question among fisherman…”What’s better; a fancy bass fishing trip to some exotic location or simply sitting out in your boat on a quiet waterway somewhere in the States?”

It’s a tough question. Hardened bass fisherman will usually go with the latter as the experience of sitting on a quiet lake somewhere with only the sounds of nature to worry about and then to have the silence broken by the thrashing of man’s greatest foe, the bass is unbeatable.

Taking Bass Fishing Trips

A bass fishing trip to exotic places however, are hard to beat especially if you want guaranteed success. Mexico offers some excellent fishing options in the way of guided tours and the promise of snagging the biggest bass in the world. That’s pretty hard to say no to.
The old school bass fisherman will say living in ritzy hotels for a week and going out on guided tours getting waited on hand and foot is not the way to enjoy the thrill of catching bass.

We say…”hold on guys and gals…whatever you think is a fair thing then stick to it!”
Phew! We’re glad that little argument is over. Or is it? One of the attractions of a bass fishing trip is the ability to put a boat in the water.

Devoted bass fishermen will tell you it’s not the same when you are taken out on a fancy craft and told where to thrown your line.

The Serenity Of Being In Your Own Boat!

When you are able to put your own boat in the water you are in control; you need to seek out the good fishing spots but above all, the tranquility of the setting you choose makes all the difference.
Then your peace gives way to excitement, and rightfully so. You are here for action, and there is no greater action in the world than the battle and the struggle between a man and the fish on his fishing line. Without this struggle, a bass fishing trip would be meaningless and frankly, life would be meaningless to many of us.

For many, taking a fishing trip is not just another weekend away; it is a rite of passage and a religious experience.
Just a man and his greatest enemy, the bass. That sounds pretty good to me.

grilled fish after charter fishing in GalvestonLately I have been thinking a lot about how I prepare the meals that I cook. To tell you the truth, I find it interesting how so many different men love to fish, but they don’t necessarily love to cook.

In this post I am going to break down my process step by step.

Step One:
Catch that fish dinner. I’m not going to go too deep into this one. There are lots of other articles on this website about this topic and I feel I have beaten it to death.

Step Two: 

Make sure you have the right knife to fillet a fish.  There are plenty of different knives on the market and I am certainly no expert. However I do recommend you check out this site about finding the right knife for this type of thing.

Step Three:

make sure your knives are nice and sharp. You’ll like have to buy a sharpener for this one, but I can assure it is totally worth it. There is nothing worse than having a knife that doesn’t cut well, once you go sharp, you can never go dull again

Step Four:

Now that you have caught the fish and got all the gear you need, you will have to slice that fish up. If you’re new, I suggest you do this outside. There is something about fish smell that is impossible to get out of your house.   If you’re in an apartment, do this part by the dock or fishing spot before you get home.
It is also not a bad idea to invest in a good sharpener, their nothing worse than using a dull knife to fillet your fish. If you are not sure what to get go here and read about sharpener reviews. There you will find lots of information about the best knife sharpener for your fishing adventure.

Step Five (optional):

Marinate that fish baby! Personally, I love to let my fish sit in a marinated for at least a few hours. It totally improves the taste, but I suppose it really depends on how you’re like your fish.   Many folks just like them fresh out of the water.

Step Six: BBQ, bake it, or fry it up.

BBQ: This is my favorate method for cooking my fish. I like to use a coal grill and there is just something about the coal that adds flavor to the fish. It almost feels smoked up, just amazing.

Bake: You can bake your fish as well, I only do this when I am feeling lazy or feel that the fish needs to sit in the marinate longer. Not my favorite method.

Fry: When it is raining outside, I really enjoy throwing the fish on a frying pan. I’m not sure what it is, but I just feel like a great chef whenever I do this. Just a cool feeling I guess (that is followed by a great mean   )

That’s it.

In short, that is pretty much how I go about cooking up my fish. I really recommend getting a good knife that is super sharp. I’m telling you, you will never regret it.   That about wraps up this post, I wish you happy fishing and even better cookin’.

charter fishing in AkaroaAkaroa is approximately 80 kms from Christchurch, about a one and a quarter hours drive. It is nestled on the shores of an ancient volcano with the harbour being the original Crater Lake.

Originally settled by the Maori and then in the early 1800’s by whalers and sealers, it was officially claimed by the English in 1839. In 1840 it was settled by a small group of French and their influence remains with historic buildings, narrow streets, fluttering tricolors and over recent years bilingual signage reminds us of Akaroa’s French heritage.

This was the signing place for the South Island signing of the Treaty of Waitangi and the reason for its existence.
Famous for the rare Hector’s Dolphins and a multitude of aquatic wildlife and marine birds, Akaroa has grown as a tourist destination and over the past decade now offers a great selection of accommodation, activities, restaurants, cafés, shops and galleries.

Some of the other activities available are:

Fishing and dive charters, jet boating, sea kayaking, sailing

For on the land experiences there are options such as:

Guided tours of the town and the outer bays, a penguin colony, seal colony, a Banks Peninsula country farm, mountain biking, petanque on the village green, quad biking, horse riding, and tennis.

Hire a moped or push bike and explore the back streets of Akaroa village and the many bays and settlements which fringe the harbour. Don’t forget your camera and allow sufficient time for sightseeing.

There are two excellent museums: one in Okains Bay, which has one of New Zealand’s leading Maori artifacts collections, and The Akaroa Museum, which offers a unique insight into early New Zealand and the settlement of Akaroa. A duplex theatre runs during the summer months.

Most people find that one day is not enough so do come and stay longer. Many think the same of a week and some just find it hard to leave!

charter fishing with rod and reelI watched an amazing episode of Monster Fish with host and biologist Zeb Hogan.  Its amazing some of the adventures he gets to go on.

He traveled all the way to Nicaragua to fish in one of the largest fresh water lakes in the world.  What did he fish for?  One of the toughest fishes to catch…Tarpon.

These fishes are simply amazing.  They are at the top of the food chain, a definitive predator and simply amazing to catch.

The episode showed Zeb connecting with several different locals, visiting different parts of the lake to land this prize of a fish.

During the journey he went on several different fishing charters which took him to different areas of the fresh water lake.  Its amazing the different types of fish found in the fresh water lake.

The story is that the lake used to be part of the ocean, but was sealed off by volcano eruptions and trapped different species of sea life.  Over time, these sea creatures adapted to fresh water.

In the show, Zeb tried several times to catch the Tarpon only to lose it due to the powerful strength these fish have.  They have the ability to jump out of the water over 10 feet and wiggle hard enough to either straighten out the hook or completely spit it out of their large mouths.

It was an amazing show and made me want to simply go out to the waters and take a trip deep sea fishing.
