Nothing very exciting today. It was raining and overcast for the most of the day with a southern winds. To my experience southern winds around in Tampa bay I haven’t had much luck when I’m using artificial lures. The fishing around here so far has been hot and cold. The most successful fishing has been the inshore gag grouper bite. I know guys that are catching keeper groupers in less than 15′ of water! I also know friends that is trolling long lipped plugs and pulling up 30″ gags in the shipping channels.
Today I have been moving content over to the new Saltyshores. It will be using wordpress and database driving. It will be better for search engines as well as have a search feature so you can do a search for all kinds of stuff on Saltyshores.com.
Videos which I am currently working on doing more of, can be embedded within Saltyshores. This means you don’t have to leave the website anymore to see the videos, just press play.
The Email thing is rolling along. I’m working on a templates and gathering newsletter sponsors. So keep an eye out for a link in the next few days to add yourself to the mailing is so you get free fishing stuff! Just working on the getting bugs out and getting use to the program.
Not as exciting as a fishing report but I edited more Product shots for Marsh Works.

Been trying to catch up on things so I haven’t gotten out the last couple days. I did get some work done so that’s a good thing every now and then. Never seem like I ever catch up. If I miss you did not get a response from me with in a week please resend. I try to respond to all emails but sometimes a couple slips through the cracks.
Since the Louisiana video came out. I have had some emails and phone calls came in wanting me to do so high end HD, lifestyle video similar to the LA video. So you guys might start seeing some really cool video here soon that’s not just fishing. From fishing, inshore, offshore, mothership operations, to hunting and resorts are on the table. Of course there will be some high end photos as well while shooting them. Crossing my fingers things work out.
I’m still trying to put something creative together for the Tbor reel shots.
Here’s a merge in B/W I did this morning as it came to me. Perhaps tailing bonefish would be better. I’m also thinking about a totally black background with glimmers of light coming in.. like the Terminator movies when Terminator was walking out of the shadows.
