It Doesn’t Take a Fancy Skiff to Catch Fish

Award-winning outdoor writer Tom Keer recently did a quick piece on the joys of fishing out of simple skiffs in the Northeast for TakeMeFishing.org.  He mentions guides like Captain David Bitters of The Baymen, who does very well, thank you, fishing out of very simple fiberglass or aluminum-hulled boats.  “Our group was founded around a very old concept of life lived on the bay.  Our Founding Fathers were the Pilgrims, and they fished and fouled in the intertidal zones.  Like them, we keep our rich maritime history alive by focusing more on the way that life is lived as opposed the quantity in which it is lived.”
