My wife and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary last week on another honeymoon in Puerto Rico. We had a great time and even went fishing a few days.
It was a none stop week to see and do as much as we could while we were there. A few key activities we enjoyed were a kayak tour of the illuminating Bay, Old San Jaun and the Del Morro Fortress, Arecibo Radio Telescope, Rio Camuy Caves, Snorkeling, and a couple days of fishing. We’ll have more on our fishing in Puerto Rico in a future episode.
Were glad to be back with another power packed episode of JustGoFishin Tales and Reports for Texas Coastal Bend and Beyond. We’ll talk a little about our Podcasting and what this means to you & JustGoFishin.
We had a comment from a viewer that didn’t know much about podcasts and that they weren’t sure what to do. I’m sure that there are lots of people that don’t know much about podcasts including myself just a few months ago. I bought my daughters first iPod a few years ago and she’s enjoyed downloading her favorite music to her iPod and listening to them at her leisure. In many cases we just have to ask our kids what this iPod stuff is all about. They’ll be excited you asked and share with you how they use it. iTunes is the most popular place to view and search for your favorite music and podcasts of your favorite subject. These podcasts are basically a talk show of your favorite subject that can be entertaining and/or educational. I have downloaded some of my favorite podcasts that include Grammer Girl, Dave Ramsey, Motley Fool, Podcast Answer Man, LDS CES Firesides and others. This is a great way to enjoy your favorite audio show at your leisure. iPodes have certainly become popular as well as the iPhones that provide the same access to iTunes.

This is Episode No 001 JustGoFishin Tales & Reports Podcast. We’re excited to bring this show with some great guest to offer up their fishin insights and fishin tales.
As I begin our First Podcast Episode, I thought it was appropriate to share with you how I caught my first fish. This might help you to learn a little more about myself and passion for fishing here in the Texas Coastal Bend and beyond.
Back in 1968 I caught my first fish at Lake Shasta in Northern California while on a family vacation. I was 8 years old and I caught this lake trout while trolling around an island. Seemed that this was the best way to keep my interest up.
The real fishing story is getting ready to go fishing.
This week are guests include:
- Captain Filip Spencer known for his kayak fishing.
- Conrad Lamb who love to Ice Fish at Clearwater Lake Manatoba, Canada.
- Cal Gonzales, Saltwater Editor of Texas Fish & Game.
- Ron Behnke, Saltwater Angler Editor.
We’ll have more JustGoFishin Tales & Reports coming in February with a new episode each week beginning in March.
JustGoFishin.com is an online fishing recourse for the Texas Coastal Bend.
We would like to thank Cliff Ravencraft of PodcastAnswerMan for helping us get our start in Podcasting.
