Father and Son Fish 50 States in 50 Days

July 22, 2009

– Father and son fishing trips are a rarity for most these days, unless your Jeff and Taylor Turner.

This father and son duo have embarked on the trip of a lifetime with an ultimate goal of Fishing 50 States in 50 days, a truly amazing and inspiring feat. The goal of their trip according to Mr. Turner is to inspire others across the nation to realize their dreams and reconnect with the environment and nature.

Check out the video below for an introduction to their trip…

WCSH6 recently ran a story following their Maine stop, it can be viewed HERE.

During their visit to Maine, the Turners sought out Maine Guide Kevin Tracewski of Old Town, Maine. Together they set adrift down the Penobscot River in pursuit of Small Mouth Bass, catching a trip record 63 fish in just 4 hours. Need more proof that Tracewski is an outstanding guide? Check out his website Tracewski Fishing Adventures to learn more about booking a trip of your own!

To read more about the Father and Son fishing trip, visit their website FISH5050.com. On the site readers can check out maps, information on targeted species, and much more!

I only hope they can return one day to fish for some Wild Brookies!

    Great trip. Great story….but it hurts my insides that they came to Maine to fish the Penobscot for smallmouth bass….sigh…

      I was thinking the same thing, I just wasn’t sure how to say it without sounding like an ass. Truth is, while Bass fishing in Maine is stellar, why not fish a remote pond or river like the Rapid or Kennebago for Wild Brook Trout. Brookies are few and far between, and it’s been said numerous times that no state in the country has more wild Brook Trout than Maine. Bass will be around in great numbers ten years from now just as they are today, who knows what the Trout population will look like?

      With that said, Kevin Tracewski does many guided trips for Trout and Salmon, so it is possible that they settled on bass because time was an issue.

      Just my 2 cents.
