It is with sadness that I/we have lost a good one from the fishing and paddling community.
Cordell Baum aka. "The BoneFishWhisperer" has left this earth... after being hopitalized since Dec. 9th 2018 he has lost the battle against cancer. He passed away in the hospital at 2:20AM on Monday morning..
He was a true hard core fisherman, paddling or more often poling his canoe or kayak in Biscayne Bay chasing BoneFish, but had also mastered catching most anything in the Bay and or the local canals in and acround Coral Gables always by Fly Rod, where he lived with his GirlFriend Angela for the past 17 years. Prior to that he was actually born and raised in the OUter Banks ares of North Carolina, with a lengthy stint in Alaska. In the NW he was known as "RainbowJesus" (long before social media) as a guide in the Alaska rivers.
Old fugger with a bad heart, who just wants to fish
Such sadness to lose Cordell, may he forever Rest In Peace. I posted this picture I took of him as I will always remember him. At first light on Biscayne Bay heading out to one of his spots along the western shoreline.
Love many, trust few and always paddle your own canoe.
