Good Karma is Getting a Much Needed Interior Facelift

We made the decision to have the interior deck Good Karma refurbished and replace the console spray shields with new ones last winter so we scheduled the work to be done in October. The project will be completed by November 1st.  Stay tuned for photos of the new Good Karma interior.  She will be even better looking than before!

Private Fishing Consulting/Coaching 

I have given it a lot thought and recently decided to move forward with my private fishing consulting/coaching business.  The program will be special and promise it will be more than just about fishing gear and standard rigging.  You must apply to be accepted for consulting/coaching as I will only take on a couple of clients per year that I feel are a good fit for my style of fishing.  GPS coordinates are not included or offered and potential clients must have full business disclosure. Unlike a lot of other guides, I am consistently staying head of the game.  I share a lot in my podcasts but this will offer even more value.  Also I will re-opening my online tackle shop and offering how to videos for digital downloads as well as other items. Stay tuned for details.  If you wish to learn more please email me at or call 305-619-2126.
