Captain of the Year Nomination
InTheBite Captain of the Year award recognizes excellence among the world’s professional sportfishing captains. Those unfamiliar with the job see only the bright spots—exotic destinations, big shiny boats, the adrenaline rush of a hot teaser bite—but those who’ve put in their time at the helm understand that it’s not all Mai Tais and Yahtzee out here. Being a true professional demands a tremendous amount of both dedication and commitment. There’s always some sacrifice too, especially when it comes to a family.
So what does it take to be InTheBite’s Captain of the Year? The first step is to earn a nomination. Captains are nominated based on their tournament performance during the season. Captain of the Year is not a popularity contest: the nominees are voted upon by the past Captains of the Year, with the general public casting a tie-breaking vote only if necessary. The award is based on the merits of the individual, and that’s why InTheBite’s Captain of the Year has become the industry’s most prestigious award for the professional captain.
We continue to be impressed and proud of our crew and we are so happy to see Capt James be recognized in this manner. All of have fished with him recognize this would be a well-deserved honor. We will keep you posted as details become available.

Costa Rica Report
From Capt. James:
Thursday, October 10, 2013
I've had some friends that have been barred from the island, even heard rumor that a Boy Scout troop was ticketed for trespassing at Cape Lookout because they were there for a scheduled Clean-Up and overlooked that the park was closed due to the shut down. Geeeezzzzzze.
Not much for fishing reports, I did hear of another rumor ....an epic topwater trout bite during the gale, wonder which rumor was more accurrate.
I appreciate you guys and gals checking in on my blog, maybe I'll have some stories from Costa Rica soon enough. For now, I'm almost caught up in the office, cleaned up the garage, got in the yard today to pick up sticks and I am almost booked up for next year, ready for some sunshine and some tarpon in the air. I'll keep you posted, keep checking in.

Although the Dragin Fly is booked for January and February, there are some other great boats available, including the legend, Capt. Bubba Carter who we are proudly booking. Dragin Fly still has some openings in Dec and April through June. We may have an opportunities for singles to join on trips over the first two weeks of January.
Argentina dates are coming together for next July, the group that I am hosting is going down around July 3-10.
Drop me a line anytime for the details......and if you feel sporty, I'm sure that there are some Down East Guides who will suit up, put on the cape and charge out there to make a great day of fishing for you. Bring it on.
