Fishing & Hunting Versus Buying Meat. My passion for harvesting our own Meat.
Sometimes I’m hesitant to share pictures or videos of hunting because in the back of my mind I feel somewhat guilty. It has a different feel to me than fishing (which to most might sound silly) but, I LOVE animals. I always have and I always will. I have grown up with dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, a pet goat, pet squirrels, turtles, fish, and MORE! When I was a[...]
Grilled Clams Casino – Simple & Deeeelicious!!
We couldn't wait to go clammin' so we could cook up a big batch of these Grilled Clams Casino! But, we actually had no idea that we'd be grilling these bad boys until we got back home and the power was out! So we improvised and changed up a few things and I'm pretty sure we nailed it! They couldn't have been any more deeelicious!!! :) We will f[...]
Catching Bluefish in Hatteras, North Carolina in my BOAT :)
Once you find one Bluefish, you're in there! :) Because most of the time once you've found one, you've found a ton! They swim in big schools and you will see them jumping and swimming together and ready to eat! And most of the time you will see them feeding on little bait fish in the water and see all the birds diving in the water too! Bluefish put up such a stron[...]

Homemade Carolina Crab Cakes Recipe :)
Oh my goodness, I can't believe this was our first time making homemade Crab Cakes! Y'all, they were SO DELICIOUS!! Crab Cakes have always been my favorite go-to order at a restaurant because it was the one seafood meal that I hadn't ever spent the time making at home. I guess because it's not something that we typically try to catch a lot of and even if we did[...]
It’s a GIANT SPECKLED TROUT – Get the NET!

We had no idea that we were about to catch A GIANT Speckled TROUT! Just another day in the cheese (wanchese) turned out to be one exciting afternoon!! Y'all...I can't explain it when he hooked that thing and saw it flip and rol[...]
Buy a Boat, Drink a Beer, Get Along
They say, “The two happiest days in a boat owner's life: the day you buy the boat, and the day you sell the boat.” :) But, I can tell ya that if I ever sell this boat it’ll be because I’m buying another. I get it though, boats are a never ending project. I challenged myself last year without hesitation to buy a boat, [...]
