Fishing Intelligence

Fishing Intelligence Podcast Ep. 15 | A Year in Review (2018)

On this episode of the Fishing Intelligence Podcast, I am doing things a little bit differently. With the year wrapping up, I thought it would be a fun idea to take some of my favorite fishing moments from 2018 and share them with you all. As many of you know, I was fortunate enough to host the first ever ANGLR Tour last summer and fish in 36 locations all over the Easter US while living out of my Jeep Wrangler.

All of the fishing trips that I did were each special in their own way and I hope to eventually discuss all of them on this platform but here a five of those trips for you discussed in this podcast. The first place I talk about is peacock bass fishing in Miami with Chad Nelson. Chad is a family man who took time out of his busy life to put Alex and I on our first ever Peacock Bass. He even was nice enough to give us a place to stay the night! These fish are incredible and you can watch this episode here.

The second stop I talk about was Steelhead fishing with Jeff Blood, a fly fishing Legend. Steelhead are my nemesis but somehow he was able to put me on a multiple fish day. You can watch this episode here.

Next up was the South Holston River with Brady Carter in Tennessee. I am an absolute trout nut, especially when you can catch them on Dry Flies so this trip was an absolute treat. You can watch this episode here.

After the Holston, I discuss Cape Canaveral with Josh Baker. This was my first Offshore fishing trip and boy did it pay off big with a massive Mahi and Barracuda! You can watch this episode here.

Next up was the stop in Cape Canaveral, the absolute most insane two days of fishing in my life hands down. These Martha’s Vineyard Striper guys are bonkers for fishing and we only slept 6 hours in 2 days of straight fishing. You can watch this episode here.

I wrap up the podcast talking about the epic shark fishing that we did while relaxing on the beach of Emerald Isle with Tyler Barnes and my first ever magnum spoon bass on Lake Fork with Eric Faucett, you can watch this episode here.

2018 was an absolute blast of a year for me and I want to thank everyone for their help with making it so amazing. Here is to an even better 2019!!

Fishing for me is more than just a hobby. I have traveled the majority of the US targeting as many species as possible with some of my favorite species being the Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, and Redfish. I have been fortunate enough to work with ANGLR as the ANGLR Tour host where we traveled 10,500 miles over 2 months and caught 59 different species.
