Believe it or not, this is what gives me the most satisfaction, when I chat with a person about fishing, share some tips and they take it in consideration and catch really nice fish. That is my story from meeting Brian & Natalile Sokolich at the Toronto Sportsmen Show.
I had met Brian & Natalie Sokolich at Toronto Sportsmen Show and he told me about a trip he was going on to Mexico. We talked about tackle, fishing outfits and from his report, they had a wonderful trip. In his own words, “Hi Italo, back from Mexico and fishing from shore with a 4-piece Rapala Baja travel rod did its job. It was about a 10-mi fight that drew quite a crowd of onlookers. Yes, the coral can be difficult to manage, however water shoes are a must. They were commenting that I better not lose this fish as they were standing there for a while which made me chuckle. I saw a bunch of baitfish jump all at the same time in the water and 2nd cast into it, BANG! A flashy, blue-chrome Heddon saltwater Spook did the trick. I reeled it in so it retrieved a few inches under water. Shiny was the key. My videographer in purple did a fine job as well. I will have a video soon.”
Brian was being a little modest. He caught quite a few more fish from shore that he showed my through Facebook and they also caught fish on a 4-hr charter, so the trip was a big success!
Good job Brian (and your videographer-Natalie!), now back to reality and temperatures -0C!
