Directions In shallow dish, stir flour, salt and pepper. Coat fish pieces in flour mixture (reserve remaining flour mixture). In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.

Lift fish from skillet to serving platter with slotted spatula (do not discard drippings); keep warm.
I don’t remember learning how to fish any more than I remember learning how to swim. I always thought I was just born that way. But I wasn’t. The truth is I was taught by one of the greatest fisherman I ever knew.
Bill recognizes that the outdoor recreation industry is a significant economic driverAlexandria, VA – December 9, 2016 – In a significant step forward for the outdoor recreation industry and the sportfishing community, yesterday, President Obama signed into law the Outdoor Recreation Jobs and Economic Impact Act of 2016 . The bill, known as the Outdoor REC Act, passed the House of Representatives and the Senate in November. This new piece of legislation requires the Department of Commerce, in collaboration with the Department of the Interior and the Department of Agriculture, to assess and analyze the contributions of the outdoor recreation industry, including recreational fishing, to the United States economy. The legislation will help to ensure that sportfishing industry jobs and recreational fishing’s economic impact are accounted for as part of the gross domestic product (GDP).Read More

As a writer, I love acronyms. I’m geeky that way. And social media has rocketed them to mega-celebrity status with LOL, OMG, WTF, IMO and IDK. But, sometimes you wonder which came first, the title or the acronym. Take ICAST – for example. It’s a fishing show. Coincidence? I think not. The International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades is a mouthful to say but the acronym is snappy. I’m sure the committee ruminated on that for weeks before the light bulb popped. REEF is another one. The Reef Environmental Education Foundation. Clever!Read More
Jim and Connie Elek won the highest bid on an expedition to Tropic Star Lodge in Panama at the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation auction last October at the IGFA headquarters in Ft. Lauderdale.

Both Jim and Connie are experienced boaters and have already collected some of my original art.
For those who don’t live near the Alabama Gulf Coast, you might not be aware that Gov. Robert Bentley declared a Lionfish Awareness Day recently.

About 10 years ago, my buddies and I started a tradition. We decided the absolute best way to end the year was to go fishing. Imagine that. So, every New Year’s Eve, we wrap up in our warmest jackets, load up the boat, pack some spirits and head to our favorite honey hole...
If oyster dressing was on the Thanksgiving menu, the likelihood is the cook had to look for oysters at other than traditional outlets.
Coral Restoration Foundation has been awarded $2.1 million in funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to restore eight reefs along the Florida Reef Tract to levels outlined in NOAA’s Acropora Recovery Plan. Out of 17 coastal habitat restoration organizations that were selected for funding through NOAA’s Community-based Restoration Program, Coral Restoration Foundation is the sole recipient for a coral reef restoration project. The $2.1 million grant will be distributed over 3 years and will be matched dollar for dollar by Coral Restoration Foundation.
Most fundraisers and similar activities that require significant public participation may enjoy several years of success and great turnouts. Most, however, tend to fade significantly after a decade or so. The Alabama Wildlife Federation (AWF) Wild Game Cook-Off series is the exception to the rule.

If you work really hard, it’s amazing how much fun you can pack into 48 hours. And that was our mission last weekend at the swanky Greenwich Wine and Food Festival, where my lovely wife and I mingled with the well-adorned beautiful people.
