New Hook Shots: High School Goes Offshore

I can honestly say that the best part of shooting "Hook Shots" videos isn't catching fish, but getting to fish with new people. I have shared boats with guides and anglers for videos that I now consider friends, but I must confess that of all the shoots I've done none was more enjoyable than the one showcased below. A few weeks ago I got invited to join the Southern Regional High School Fishing Club from Manahawkin, NJ, on one of their field trips. See, every fall the junior and senior members get to go on an overnight offshore trip for tuna and swordfish. That beats even the best field trip I ever got to take in high school, and if such a club had existed at my school, I'd have surely been the president. There is nothing quite as inspiring to me as seeing young kids revved up to fish, and these kids were amped to the max. It was an honor to fish with them, and I hope I get the chance to do it again. Enjoy the show, and don't forget to take the latest Hook Shots Quiz for a chance to win a set of Rapala Pliers.
