If you've ever wondered the secret to catching loads of inshore saltwater fish (like redfish, snook, speckled trout, flounder, and tarpon) in a brand new area then you're going to love this episode. Capt. Jay Withers moved from Ohio (where he was a bass fisherman) and set his sights on learning the waters down here in Florida so well that he could be a full-time guide. He shares his amazing story on how he did it. Enjoy.

For many years I struggled with church. Some were boring. Some churches seemed to be all about the money. Some churches seemed stuck on rituals (forgetting that their members came seeking help, support, and love). So I brought on pastor Johnny Kelly to discuss another hard-hitting topic... Why Church?
I first heard about Freedom Boat Club a couple years ago. A few of our Salt Strong members had sold their boats (after many years of frustration dealing with things breaking, long lines at boat ramps, etc) to join a boat club. I was skeptical at first, but the more I kept hearing about it, the more curious I became. Finally, I drove down to the local Freedom Boat Club here in Winter Haven, FL and asked for a tour.

Over the last year of doing these podcasts we've had numerous questions come up about Faith. In particular, confusion and hard-hitting questions about God, church, Christianity, etc. This is a pat of my life that I've struggled with (in terms of clear answers) so I'm setting out to interview pastors and other experts who can give us simple answers to Faith through stories. I hope you enjoy this first episode with pastor Johnny Kelley. His story is pretty amazing. Please give me feedback on how to make these Unchurched episodes even better.

Listen in as Dave discusses his fall and winter tactics, best fishing lures for wading, and more.
