This adventure had it all: a guide barking orders from the poling platform; wind and tides and chop; and the biggest reds I have ever seen. In today's video, episode one, it's back-to-school time with my guide, Capt. Rocky Thickstun, putting me through drills on how to make laser casts. Already, I'm feeling the heat. Episodes two and three will go up later this week (Wednesday and Friday). If you've ever had buddies watching over your shoulder as you tried something completely new, you'll recognize my sweaty brow in this episode.
