Fishing Magazine Articles

Featured Magazine Articles

I have been featured in many publications over the years.  Some they featured my fishing techniques.  Some photos of me.  A lot of them used Jenni’s photos.  Several of them just used Jenni’s photos taken in my boat to make someone else look good…lol

Here are a few that I could find.  I wish I saved them all.

Sport Fishing Magazine-June 2012

This was a cool article Doug Olander wrote about a big shark that has tormented the tarpon of Boca Grande for years. This particular shark I have had a grudge against for decades.  The hammerhead shark eating a tarpon photo is one of Jenni’s.

Florida Sportsman – September 2008

“The end of summer bite is particularly strong on Charlotte Harbor. This sprawling, 330 square mile Southwest Florida estuary is fed by three rivers and framed by seagrass beds and living oyster reefs.”

“That’s where Port Charlotte Photographer Jenni Bennett caught these spectacular images. Her husband Capt. Mark Bennett, is a busy guide, carving out a niche in quiet backwaters, miles and weeks beyond Boca Grande Pass.”

Sport Fishing Magazine-April 2006

This issue had a nice sidebar segment on me about kite fishing for tarpon. They had never heard of anyone utilizing a kite for tarpon ever before.  To tell you the truth, when I started using the technique I never had either.

Sport Fishing Magazine-April 2002

This is one of Jenni’s first cover shot’s.  The money she got for it bought her first real professional Nikon camera.  A few days after this magazine came out she got a call from Scott Kerrigan (a.k.a. the Man when it comes to big game photography) to ask how she got this shot.  I thought that was cool.
