Sea, Sky, and Travel – Moments Etched in Image

 

By

Though photos got their start for me as support for content in articles and books, they’ve evolved into recording and journaling my passion for travel. Some of the destinations appearing here are St. Maarten, Miami, Alaska, Barbados, Belize, The Yucatan, Sanibel, Flamingo, Sarasota, Curacao, the Florida Keys, Israel, Greece, Louisiana, Italy, and Argentina. When photos are for my amusement instead of commercial requirements, I have no shame breaking all the rules. Focus and camera shake might be tossed to the wind, as will noise and graininess. Sometimes I saturate and boost to diabetic levels. My depth of field approaches are not consistent. I do think photos should be special units of emotions (both good and bad) and cherished memories as well as the traditional representational approach. Sometimes, it’s best not to just think out of the box- it’s best to leave that encumbrance entirely. More can be found at www.flatsfishingonline.com.

Here’s some images of shallow water marine fishing in the “simplicity” of black and white. The anglers, captains, lodges, and destinations are diverse: Captains Ricky Sawyer (Abaco, Bahamas), Jason Sullivan (Flamingo, Florida), Benny Blanco (Flamingo), Ralph Allen (Punta Gorda, Florida), Bob Branham (Biscayne Bay, Florida),  Carl Ball (Biscayne Bay), Kyle Messier(Crystal River, Florida), Greg Dini (Hopedale, La.), Emir Marin (Ambergris Caye, Belize), Matt Hoover (Goodland, Florida), and Rob Munoz (Biscayne Bay). My friend Alan Williams is in the shot with Jason and the snook. The lodges and outfitters involved in some of these images are Cajun Fishing Adventures (Buras, La.), El Pescador Lodge (Ambergris Caye, Belize) and KingFisher Fleet (Punta Gorda).

Amazon Peacock Bass,

Fishing  in the amazon, is always good fishing in this region because we are in contact with the forest
and a beauty that not see every day. The Amazonian peacock bass is a very strong fish and makes you test your fishing rods to the extreme!
This season has been a difficult season, but still took some good examples!
Hope you enjoy! Thanks to all!

Florida Spring Osceola Turkey

March 3rd 2015

Today I took the early drive to meet up with Mike Sims to shoot some photos of Osceola Turkey. Armed with only my camera and my Walmart camo.. we walked into Mike’s favorite turkey spot and settled in before the sun came up.

Besides getting the gear ready all I had was time on my hand. Now it was time to wait and wait and wait until they started to show up.

Though I did not see any gobblers today we saw plenty of jakes walking about. First one showed up, then a about 10 minutes pass a flock of them showed up. It was quite exciting.

I must say I kind of like being on the ground and not having to worry about my camera getting saltwater all over them. I think I will be shopping for some better camo very soon and try this again. Hope to get some gobblers in the lens next time.

In Praise of Peacocks by Jan Maizler

In Praise of Peacocks

It would take hundreds of pages to review the stupendous success of peacock bass in South Florida-both it’s introduction and proliferation. The excellence of the fishery in the Sunshine State  is such that it is no longer essential to travel to the Amazon to enjoy a truly viable fishery for this colorful battler. While South America boasts the largest specimens, Florida offers vast populations of good-sized fish that will challenge any flyfisher  or light tackler. The following images were taken on trips with Captain Butch Moser of Delray Beach and land guide Hai Truong of Miami. Also pictured are Gus Montoya and the late Captain Ken Collette.
