Fast, Fishy and Good-Looking
Jimmy Buffett has impeccable taste in boats. Look no further than the 2018 launch of Surfari, his 48-foot sailboat with a unique, open-concept deck layout designed by naval architect Ted Fontaine and built by Pacific Seacraft. Other boats that have g

Up In The Attic
A thin man with wispy white hair beckons me from the top of the steep attic stairs. “I’m up here,” Bill Beattie shouts. A Portuguese waterdog named Cruz barks his welcome. I feel as if I’m climbing out of the hold of an old sardine carrier and onto a

Opening Doors
The language says it all. Fishermen are … men. Never mind that a recent U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service survey reports that of 35.8 million anglers in the United States, 9.8 million, or 27 percent, are female. Even curmudgeons acknowledge the trend, w

How I Got That Shot
Richard “Gibby” Gibson has taken pictures of fish, fishermen and fishing boats from the Caribbean to the Bahamas and beyond. Of all the fish he’s photographed, one remains a challenge: Coryphaena hippurus, commonly known as dolphin, mahi-mahi or dora

The Halibut Hunter
Sixty-five miles out of Seward, Alaska, on the 50-foot Glacier Bear, I lie in my berth waiting for a bout with food poisoning to fade enough so that I might be able to crawl to the deck and fish for a few hours. Above, I can hear Capt. Aaron “Butters

My Boat My Life
For Kendall Osborne, the skinny waters and back bays of Virginia’s Atlantic seaside — home to one of the northernmost tarpon fisheries in the country — are a fly-fishing heaven. “I love the challenge of that fishery, and the scenery and solitude. It’

Fish Of Countless Casts
I have misspent the last 32 years of my life in pursuit of Atlantic salmon. I have very little to show for it. A dented Subaru; a singular collection of double-handed rods; enough fly lines to stretch from Doaktown, New Brunswick, to Cascapédia, Québ

A fish is a fish except when it’s something more. I chartered with a guide in Miami this winter specifically to catch a big tarpon, both as a reminder of the difficult year just passed and to serve as a signal flag for an aspirational future, one whe

Denizens Of The Old Grounds
Codfish keep me thinking. They are the reason I walk the winter docks, and why I have older fishermen as friends. Cod are the reason I sometimes spread worn paper charts across my dining room table and run my fingers along the fathom curves. I rememb

Deep-diving Slasher
Ever since I first went to sea with my uncle, Capt. Bill Dunn, I’ve been fascinated with swordfish. On a slick, calm August day in 1981, running out of Shinnecock Inlet on Long Island, my uncle calmly proclaimed, “Swordfish, 1 o’clock.” We were on th

Of Trout and Marriage
Nikea and I will be married at the pond in June. It’s really an old reservoir. A dam of cut stone laid across a small brook-trout stream that flows east off the Allegheny Front. The dam is old, circa 1923. The stones are older. During the past two de

The King’s Head
It’s easy to see why zoologist Achille Valenciennes in 1847 named the tarpon Megalops atlanticus — “Atlantic big eye.” Indeed, at close range, a 100-pound tarpon’s golf-ball-sized eye, with its massive, gold-rimmed pupil, is mesmerizing. Imagining wh

Never Gets Old
My first visit to Magdalena Bay was with Shark Diver magazine two years ago. It was strictly a photography expedition, and I didn’t know what to expect. We ran offshore in a local panga, spotted frigates circling, ran up on them and jumped overboard.
