Gorichky spends more than 200 days a year guiding along Florida’s Space Coast for targeting trout, redfish, tarpon, and snook, as well as pelagic species like king mackerel and red snapper.

  • Try Live Baits to Target Gator Trout

    Sep 27, 2018
    There’s no doubt that one of the most popular game fish from the Carolina Outer Banks to the Gulf Coast of Texas is the spotted seatrout. One of the crowned jewels of light tackle angling is landing and releasing a trout over 28-inches, known as gator trout for their stocky build and large fangs. But targeting these larger trout — fish in the 15- to 18-inch range are generally known as eaters and perfect for the grill — requires different tactics. Science tells us that as trout leave the smaller eater range and enter the gator class

  • Carolina Skiff JV-TH Series: Simply a great little fishing & runabout boat

    Aug 29, 2018
    “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” — Leonardo da Vinci It’s hard to believe that the best-known artist and inventor of the Renaissance could have predicted the rise of leading boat manufacturer Carolina Skiff to the forefront of the marine industry.

  • Stalking Tripletail “One for the Bucket List”

    Aug 28, 2018
    Lobotes surinamensis are aptly named. More commonly known as tripletail, leaf fish or blackfish, these strange looking critters feature the dorsal, caudal and anal fins all close together at the rear of its body, hence its name. Camouflage with a mottled brown or dark color, these ambush predators can be found anywhere from nearshore depths to the Gulf Stream. Tripletail are prized for their fighting ability almost as much as their delicate flavor. Tripletail ambush their prey by lurking near structure, often on their side. They can often be found around channel markers and other navigation aids, crab trap floats, pilings, and flotsam. They will even use the shadow of dead seabirds to hide and seek a meal. Offshore, tripletail will hold around sargassum and other weed lines, logs, pallets, and debris.

  • Carolina Skiff 198 DLX is a stable, efficient option for flats and bays

    Aug 27, 2018
    Anglers shopping for a stable hull that runs well on less horsepower and floats shallow should take a Carolina Skiff 198 DLX for a test ride. It offers many desired features that won’t break the bank and is a great fishing boat. Sporting a flat bottom design, the DLX skiffs incorporate splash guards on the bow to keep passengers dry. The running surface also has tracking keels, so handling is sure and predictable, even in sharp turns. With its 93-inch beam and 4-inch draft, the 198 floats extremely shallow, giving access to the wariest backcountry fish. Maximum horsepower rating is 115, but the easy-to-plane running surface performs well with less horsepower. It can accommodate outboards with 20- or 25-inch shaft lengths and the hull tip the scales at just over 1,500 pounds.
