2013 Shogun Skiff Trip
Let’s start by saying thanks to the Shogun for making this trip even happen. Captain Aaron Barnhill and the boys did a great job making this a trip to remember. Next in line was the sponsors of the trip for getting involved in a brand new adventure. I have to thank Cory “Bigtime” Sanden for handing out all the weedless baits to everyone on the trip, that is a lot of extra work and time. You have to have a hook for the MC weedless and that was the 10/0 Trokar wide gap hook, holy cow that hook is razor sharp and hangs on to fish. Thanks for the hand-outs John. Must thank Darin at Seeker Rods for hooking me up with the new Cory Sanden Offshore Pro series 709, that rod is insane and can set the hook and turn fish. Stoked on Pelagic / Bassking, they supported the trip too by handing out a ton of gear and apparel. Last but not least my buddy captain Jimmy Decker, thanks for lending me those sick Abu Revo Toro’s, first time I have ever used those amazing reels. Strong as hell and built to brawl. The power handle on the Abu NaCl Revo Toro was a game changer. Thanks to my brother Ryan who helped me film on the trip, we came out with some incredible fishing footage from the skiffs and the mother ship and we even got to pull on a few fish too. This trip will air on Fox Sports West in the coming months.
