Chasing Redfish with Captain Nathan Beabout

If you want to really learn how to fish for speckled trout and redfish, get out of the boat and into the water.  We did just that with Captain Nathan Beabout out of Seadrift, Texas.

Most all Texas Gulf Coast fishing guides will put you onto fish.  Live shrimp (or croaker if available) over an oyster reef or grass bed is a time-proven method to put fish into the cooler.  And any time on the water landing fish is a great day.  But shrimp under a popping cork isn’t the most exciting or rewarding way to fish.  To really crank up the thrill level get out of boat and wade fish with top-waters.  Standing in waste-deep water and having a big spec or red blow up right in front of you is the way it is meant to be.

Best Lights for a Jeep come from Rugged Ridge

If you spend anytime in the dark off road, hunting, wheeling, fishing or whatever then you know how important it is to have quality lighting.  I have a 2000 Jeep Wrangler (TJ) that I use daily.  From commuting on the interstate to hunting in South Texas this is my do all vehicle and I have learned that being able to see in the dark is critical.

Several years ago, I had an unfortunate encounter at 60mph with a little 8 point buck which rendered my fog lights broken. Since that time, I realized that lighting was very important, but it was not until I started really using the Jeep that I found the need for lighting to be critical. I sourced some very cheap China made LED fog lights and mounted them in the fog position, and for the price they work well enough. However, they are flood lights not a spot and do not throw the light very far. For this, I contacted the experts at Rugged Ridge and picked up some A-Pillar mounts and lights.
