A blast from the past Wanda Stewart’s first fishing trip with Jack Payne

My first fishing trip with Jack Payne over five years ago teaching me his unique counting to pop ratio, Jack just give me my rod back and go count on the back of the boat! We had a great time that day and Jack was a trooper having a newbie on the boat, ME! I hope you still have my hat, looks like we might get another one! I managed some nice trout without all the fuss! One thing is for sure, it is never to late in life to follow your passion and chase those dreams the only thing stopping you is YOU!

Fishing in low water

With the water being so low it’s hard to get to your favorite spots, so the last few times out of hopedale, I went for a nice boat ride so to speak!

I am a woman who loves the sport of fishing.

Wrapping up a stellar year of fishing! Looking forward to more time on the water in 2019 and fishing more tournaments with The RodnReelgirl team. Louisiana has some of the best fishing in the world. Come get you some. I am a woman who loves the sport of fishing. I believe it is good for the soul and the mind. Reconnecting with nature is extremely important in the world we live in today. Our surroundings have become very artificial, and though technology is beneficial in helping us all evolve, we just can’t forget where we came from. RodnReel will be working with Frenchy on developing another cook book. We welcome all participation and will be adding a menu button to upload your favorite recipes. Catching is great but cooking your catch is awesome.   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = 'https://connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v3.2'; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Good Evening Y’all.

Gino Kalkanoglu Memorial

We sadly say goodbye! Turkce aciklamasi metinin en altindadir. Lutfen en attaki bolumden okuyunuz.  ENGLISH Gino, my soulmate, left this Earth too soon after a long battle with mental illness.  He was a passionate man who cared so deeply for everyone and everything around him.  His mission in life was to heal the world and bring joy to every person he met.  Whether you met him once or spent a lifetime with him, Gino always left a positive mark.   Gino moved to the United States in 1998 after finishing his degree for Director of Photography in Turkey.  In the US, he went through a multitude of careers before settling into his passion work over the last 12 years when he started his business, NOLA Image Works, LLC, and began building a name in video.  He and I met and fell in love in 2000 and remained strong ever since.  In our lifetime together, Gino worked as a bartender, air cargo agent, real estate agent, real estate appraiser, black jack dealer, musician, photographer, video editor, director of photography, producer, and entrepreneur.   Gino always maintained a passion for diving and the oceans.  He created some of his best work while advocating for the health of our aquatic world.  When talking about the work he did for money versus the work he did for good, he would always say “That work feeds the stomach.  This work feeds the soul.”  I’ll never forget that.   Gino embraced so much in his life.  He loved fishing, playing music, dancing, and cooking.  He loved to barbecue, entertain friends in the backyard, and gardening.  He loved playing his guitar and jamming on the congas.  I’m sure I’ve left some things out.  There was so much love in him. The money donated in tribute to Gino will be used to help me cover the costs of the funeral home, the cost of the Celebration of Life on March 24th, and to cover a few business debts that remained after his death.  Everyone I’ve talked to has shared a story of how Gino reached them when they were low,  or how Gino made them laugh and gave them a lifelong memory.  Please help me settle his memorial and expenses so we can all get together and celebrate him.   TURKCE (Pinar Kalkanoglu’nun abisi anisina) Gino, ruh ikizim, savasmakta oldugu ruh sagligi problemi dolayisiyla bu dunyayi cok erken terketti. Etrafindaki hersey ve herkese derinden onem veren tutkulu bir adamdi. Hayattaki misyonu dünyayı iyileştirmek ve tanıştığı her insana neşe getirmek oldu. Onunla bir kez tanışmış ya da onunla bir ömür geçirmiş olsanız da, Gino her zaman olumlu bir iz bıraktı. Gino, 1998 yılında Goruntu Yonetmenligi bolumunu bitirdikten sonra Amerika Birleşik Devletleri’ne taşındı. ABD’de, son 12 yıldaki tutkusu olan çalışmalarına baslamadan önce çok sayıda kariyerden geçti ve NOLA Image Works, LLC’ye baslatti ve video sektorunde bir isim oluşturmaya başladı. O ve ben 2000 yılında tanıştık ve aşık olduk ve o zamandan beri güçlü kaldık. Birlikte geçirdiğimiz ömrümuzde, Gino barmen, hava kargo temsilcisi, emlakçı, black jack kurpiyeri, müzisyen, fotoğrafçı, video editörü, fotoğraf yönetmeni, yapımcı ve girişimci olarak çalıştı.   Gino`nun her zaman dalış ve okyanuslar ile ilgili bir tutkusu vardi. Su dünyamızın sağlığını savunurken en iyi çalışmalarından bazılarını yarattı. Para için yaptığı işlere karsin iyilik icin yaptığı işler hakkında konuşurken, her zaman “Bu iş mideyi besler. Bu iş ruhu besler” derdi. Bunu asla unutmayacağım. Gino hayatında çok seyi kucakladı. Balık tutmayı, müzik çalmayı, dans etmeyi ve yemek yapmayı severdi. Mangal yapmayı, arka bahçede arkadaşlarını eğlendirmeyi ve bahçeciliği çok severdi. Gitar çalmayı ve kongalar ile oynamayı severdi. Eminim bazı şeyleri soylemeyi unutmusumdur. İçinde çok fazla aşk vardı. Gino’ya hediye olarak bağışlanacak olan para, cenaze evinin masraflarını, 24 Mart’taki Yaşam Kutlamaları’nın maliyetini ve ölümünden sonra kalan birkaç ticari borçları karşılamama yardımcı olacak. Konuştuğum herkes, düştukleri zaman  Gino`nun onlara nasıl ulaştığını ya da Gino’nun onları nasıl güldürdügunu ve ömür boyu bir hatıra verdigini anlatiyor. Lütfen anısıni ve masraflarıni karsilamama yardım edin, böylece hep birlikte buluşup onun hayatini kutlayalım.    https://www.gofundme.com/gino-kalkanoglu-memorial/donate  

Great Sportsmanship is not dead!

“I have been fishing in the Cocodrie area, golden meadow and Dularge this week and wrapping up today! The fishing was good, slow but managed a mess of fish each day, fun and laughter off the hook literally. Tangled lines birds nest reels, dropped poles in the water. And through it all the camaraderie among the guides was just short of amazing. No pissing contests on the water everyone of them helping the other ones out, laughing and just having a good time. And last but not least a group of guides on one boat riding around scouting out areas. Stopping to chat offer advice Ask for advice, they treated the recreational people like myself with respect and just an all around niceness. Just very pleasant people to be around on the water. What a shining example of Sportsmanship! Then I had the pleasure of joining in a conversation yesterday evening at the Sportsmans paradise restaurant, met Ms. Connie and just had a wonderful dinner talking about the days catch with all the anglers. It never ceases to amaze me how fishing is a universal language! Louisiana has some of the best fishing in the world and also some of the best fishing guides! Below are just a few I had the pleasure of actually meeting this past week and two I fished with. Thank you so much guys for being an advocate for good sportsmanship. It makes a fishing trip so much more memorable when the ambiance is beautiful weather great fishing guides, putting fish in the box and laughter all day long! It makes my job a dream come true! I can’t thank these guides enough for the wonderful time my friends and I had. Fishing with Captain Casey Lombard and Captain George Spivey was a blast! The highlight of the five days of bitter cold winds, and low water with little to no tide was the fact my friend Marc Scroggs visiting from Branson Missouri caught his first red fish ever and what a happy camper he was when he went on to catch three more even bigger than his first. Definitely one of the most fun trips I have had the pleasure of being on and writing about! All fish was caught under a popping cork and high water plastics, fish can’t resist them!
