OS 1224: Nature-busted Kingbuster and Saying Goodbye
So here's something you don't see (well, hear) this time of year: Capt. Kevin NOT fishing the Kingbuster! Why, you ask? Look no further than the weather report. GRRRRRRR. Mother Nature was an angry lady this week, and she let loose on everyone willing to dare the waves for the tournament. The guys talked about the heat, the storms and everything else this week...and as you would expect, had a whole lot of fun doing it.On a much more serious and solemn note, everyone took some time to reflect on the passing Capt. Dennis Goldstein, a true icon of First Coast fishing. Rest in peace, brother.Here’s your L.V.

When you see a sail come up behind your bait there's a good chance he will knock it off with his bill. If need be… grab another rod and pitch a bait to him. Do not take the boat out of gear because the fish will then just swim right by you!Here’s your Kirbyco Builders (https://www.facebook.com/Kirbyco-Builders-364113747689828/?__cft__%5B0%5D=AZVyy7phwcSn2Udu5Vnf2BaXfqCTbGEtvVLTtvGkmgVg1OygEeayGVagO4mSDZM3pGdnrrumjMfmIY7A8qZmnUyqmuvmksChOeETLK80BTEJsmMYSChvoXPdpQNBePLh_XGGLiOHULLGXbdIY3E-YBfYQtT2U6_zbZ115vOODcZ8SiqQfgEDjjwBGvZC_SF5MnsRGAJrEJOvDXtR3emM--9m&__tn__=kK-R) Inc. cooking tip of the week: Jeff’s Peel & Eats!!Take one can of your favorite beer and a generous amount of Old Bay and bring to a raging boil in a pot with a tight lid.

First and foremost, from all of us, Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! Please know we appreciate and respect you and your efforts to be the best fathers you can...and for teaching the next generation to enjoy and take care of the outdoors!When you've got something as cool as the Old School Kingfish Shootout happening, it kind of stays top-of-mind before, during and after. With that said, the boys spent a bunch of time recapping their experience in the Old School. Paul Dozier stopped in to get deep in the weeds, and we even heard from the Sam Spinks, winner of the Nimnicht $10,000 drawing...and what an incredible, must-listen kind of story!But it wasn't ALL Old School - Jeff shared a scary kayak fishing story...along with several great tips for anyone who uses a kayak. Kayak Mike then called in to double down on the tips Jeff shared, and provided a few of his own. 100% worth the listen for ANYBODY who wants to make it happen in a yak!Here’s your L.V.

Fishing Forecast: Kings...and Everything Else
So this time of year, everybody has kings on the brain...including Capt. Kevin, Capt. Scott and Capt. Ricky. But this year, it's kind of fun, because there's some interesting talk to be had about some other species - sails, cudas and sharks, of course. Lots to deal with on our lines, and lots to chatter about in this episode.The guys don't only talk about the fish - they talk about the weather. Speaking of which, how's that thermometer treating you? Find out if we get a break from the heat, or if you need to get set to sweat for another seven days...
OS 1222: Goin' Old School
It's Old School Kingfish Tournament Day, so Capt. Kevin and Capt. Kirk hit the water to see if they could win it. With them on the water, Jeff called in some reinforcements - Capt. Chip Wingo and Chef Gordon!As you would think, there was a ton of talk about the Old School, with updates coming from our guys, along with Dave Edwards and listeners, too. Founder Paul Dozier even checked in, as busy as he was, and he said 521 boats were entered!

Spread meat on a sheet pan. Add the bread to the beef base (stock or broth) then, add all the ingredients to the meat, as evenly as possible, except the Carolina Gold sauce. Mix ingredients into meat without squeezing the meat. Do not knead your meat!! (Like Jeff does) The intent is to not compact the meat or firm it up. Add Caroline Gold, mix gently, reserve a little to drizzle on top, and bake in 9" x 13" pan at 375° for 25 minutes. Important that the meat isn't more than about 2.5" thick or the outer portion will be dry and well done.

Listen in to find out if the forecast is going to help or hurt your chances of landing a big king of your own.
