I really love the opportunity to travel and meet new people when shooting “Hook Shots.” But sometimes you just need to stay home and hang with the local boys. In October, I’ll take my home state of dirty New Jersey over anything else. I was lucky enough to capture the classic fall blitz in all its glory for this episode, when the birds are squawking, the stripers are thrashing, and the baitfish are scared to death. I don’t care who you are or where you fish…if this doesn’t get your mojo going, nothing will. Enjoy the ride. – JC
