Few key players in the recreational-fishing industry spend more time walking the walk than Mustad's Jeff Pierce. Here, he shares a bakers's dozen of a variety of inshore shots taken around the Gulf.
This could possibly be my most memorable catch to date. This fish took a crab fly in the Marquesas during the 2010 Cuda Bowl, but after the hook up, the flyline came up off the deck in a big tangle so I threw the rod at the fish to keep from breaking off. After a chase I recovered the rod, fishing the fight and we landed, tagged and released the fish. Video can be seen here. The fish was 19 pounds.
