That is indeed J.P. Greeson in all of his angling glory (all kidding aside, J.P. is one hell of a fisherman ... he's been known to teach me a thing or two over the years).
About the piece: It is in the March '08 issue of Salt Water Sportsman, and profiles the process of fishing what we call the "Artificial Tides" of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW). When heavily-laden tug-pushed barges are approaching, they draw a tremendous amount of water off the banks in the process. Accordingly, a lot of forage ... from crabs to finfish ... is pulled off of the banks and over the GIWW ledge.
Collectively, it presents a great near-constant-current scenario in waters that by their manmade nature are as wind-protected as it gets. When it gets tough around my home waters near Galveston Bay, I often grab a batch of Berkley Gulp shrimp and an aerated bucket of inshore-sized Black Salty baitfish and head for The Ditch. Between those two offerings, artificial and natural, I almost invariably come out of the place with some great photos of quality fish ... especially redfish.
Check out that story for more info, and if I can help in any way, feel free to drop an email to me at email@example.com. I haven't tried the artificial tide GIWW rodeo in Florida, but know from talking with the subject of the piece, Capt. James France, that it has really paid off for him and his partner Gene Lessman when they are fishing FLW Redfish tourneys farther west from Alabama to, and through, the Texas Coast.
Also of note in the March issue of Salt Water Sportsman ... a photo of a fellow out of San Diego who, on a long-range trip, took one of three yellowfin tuna (aboard the Intrepid) that weighed in at more than 300 pounds. Buddy, that's a beast.
I reckon it gives J.P. and me a mark to shoot for ... albeit a very large mark ... when we make our long-awaited long-range trip aboard the Freeport, Texas-based Big E this summer. The photo is on page 22; check it out.
That's a whole bunch of primo sushi to pull in with a rod and reel.
Tight lines to all ...
