Keeping The Faith


The will of God will never take you:
Where the grace of God cannot keep you
Where the arms of God cannot support you
Where the riches of God cannot supply you
Where the power of God cannot endow you

The will of God will never take you:
Where the Spirit of God cannot work through you
Where the wisdom of God cannot teach you
Where the army of God cannot protect you
Where the hands of God cannot mold you

The will of God will never take you:
Where the love of God cannot enfold you
Where the mercies of God cannot sustain you
Where the peace of God cannot calm you
Where the authority of God cannot overrule for you

The will of God will never take you:
Where the comfort of God cannot dry your tears
Where the Word of God cannot feed you
Where the miracles of God cannot be done for you
Where the omnipresence of God cannot find you

Everything happens for a purpose
We may not see the wisdom of it all now
But trust and believe in the Lord That everything is for the best!

Fly Fishing

A Few of the Best Fly Fishing Spots in the United States

All across the United States there are many beautiful, exciting places that are excellent or fly fishing.  The following article just highlights a few of them.

Sitka, Alaska is a major stopover for salmon heading to British Columbia, Washington, and other Alaskan waters.  Fly fishermen at Sitka, have a higher fishing catch rate than any other marine area in Southeast Alaska.  June is the best month for fishing this area.

The Colorado River at Lees Ferry, Arizona, is one of the best fly fishing spots for rainbow trout.  The fish are comfortable all year round in a 15-mile stretch of cold water that flows from the depths of Lake Powell between Glen Canyon Dam and the upper end of the Grand Canyon.  Fly fishermen can also book a guide and go flats fishing for 25 pound carp.

Saltwater fly fishing is at its best at Montauk Point, New York.  Montauk Point is the easternmost point of Long Island and is best known for striper fishing. Fly fishermen have miles of beautiful shoreline in which they can cast their fly.

Gunpowder Falls, Maryland, is an excellent place to catch cold water trout.  A deal was struck by the Maryland state authorities and Trout Unlimited to start cold water releases from Pretty Boy Dam.  This has resulted in a combination of wild and stocked brown, brook, and rainbow trout.  Most of the fly  fishing is in Gunpowder Falls State Park.

Fishing Creek, Pennsylvania, is one of the states top wild trout streams.  It generally stays cool throughout the summer.  There is a five-mile stretch called the Narrows, near Lamar, that is a very popular area  for fly fishing.

Driftless Area, Wisconsin, has many excellent fly fishing streams loaded with brown trout.  There is excellent access to all of southwestern Wisconsin's eight counties.  There are 68 streams in Vernon County alone, including Kickapoo River and Timber Coulee Creek.  Most fly fishermen in this area use mayfly and caddis imitations.

Laguna Madre, Texas, is full of rivers and lakes that are excellent fly fishing locations.  Texas also has its southern coast, which is among the world's greatest saltwater fly fishing areas.  The saltwater flats of Laguna Madre, next to Padre Island, are full of all different kinds of fish that make for a great fly fishing experience.

Henry's Fork, Idaho, is a great destination for rainbow trout.  If you are fishing the Island Park area, it is better to fish in runoff conditions.

Lake C. W. McConaughy, Nebraska, is the largest lake in the state and also has some of the best fly fishing.  Another excellent fly fishing spot in Nebraska is the Fremont Lakes State Recreation Area, which is a series of twenty sandpit lakes that have been carved into the Platte River basin.  Red Willow reservoir is also a favorite of fly fishermen in this area of the country.

Kauai, Hawaii, is a great spot for fly fishing largemouth, smallmouth, and peacock bass. This Garden Isle also has excellent saltwater fly fishing.

Radio Island North Carolina late spring the sea trout are thick you just wade out about 10 yards from the beach..  Non-stop action great fun with the fly rod

Whether you like fresh or salt water fly fishing, there are thousands of places to fish across the country that offer the fly fisherman endless opportunities and experiences.

Surf Fishing

Now that you have found your rip the next thing to think about is where to drop baits. The best way to fish a rip is with 3 to 5 rods. I will usually drop 2 short and 1 at the tail of the rip. Or 2 short 2 past the rip and 1 way out or way close what ever that's your Choice.
                  I hope this helps you better understand fishing a rip. Just remember DON’T BE AFRAID TO DROP A BAIT SUPER CLOSE !!!!!. I have had some of my best fishing right in the white wash.

Surf Fishing

    When I first started out fishing in North Carolina one of the biggest problems I found was locations in the surf and where to place baits when fishing.  In this post I will go over some of the spots I have found and the reasons why they are so productive.  While I am going over these spots keep in mind the best places to find fish in numbers are places where food must move, a place where the fish don’t need to do much but wait and the food will go to them.  Also keep in mind  that NC waters are 100% different waters than that of Florida, and Georgia.  For example there is a lot of talk about fishing guts (the deep water between sand bars).  Well if you fish NC waters you will see that we don’t have alot of this. The ones we do have are very shallow.  Therefore we must adapt to fishing different structures.  What are structures they are all around us. They are everywhere we look and everywhere we go. They come in all shapes and sizes. Some are made by people, some are natural. Think of structures as a combination of parts that belong together. Take a look around you right now. ...
We live in them, they keep our feet dry on wet days, and make up the framework of our body.  They are mountains, spider webs, ant hills, beaver dams, and trees. They include the unimaginably huge universe with its millions upon millions of galaxies and stars. They also include atoms which are too small to be seen with the naked eye.  They're all structures. Think of structures as a combination of parts that belong together. Now let's take a look at structures from the Beach for fishing.  First we have the rip. Rips are holes or channels cut in the sand bar by water that is trying to escape the slew (water trapped between the sand bar and the beach) on a falling tide.
Thats it for now try finding a rip or 2 for your next trip look for flats notice where your white wash is your surf zone and outermost breakers.  I hope this helps some I will be posting more on Fishing zones when fishing a rip

This one is Funny Last year we had a BIG fish Kill do to the Cold weather seems they would rather the fish DIE and feed the Birds and critters then let the people eat them.  Its bad enough they cut the Limit from 10 to 6 fish ..SOMTHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT OUR FISHERY.

    Dr. Louis B. Daniel III, Director, Division of Marine Fisheries, hereby announces that effective 12:00 Noon, Friday, January 14, 2011, the following will apply to spotted sea trout:


    It is unlawful to possess spotted sea trout in coastal and joint fishing waters of North Carolina.
