Coast to Coast

We were out in California this past March and Justin, an ex-professional skateboarder took me out to show me how to get it done "West Coast Style."   We ran about 26 miles west of Catalina Island to San Clemente on a cold, rough morning where I should have brought my surfboard.  Instead, I brought my Flats Blue rods and caught some really nice Calico Bass.  We got two episodes this season from California, a first on Addictive Fishing.  Check out one of them on this week's episode, San Clemente  on Fox Sun Sports (Friday, 10:30 a.m. ET / Sunday 9:30 p.m. ET / Tuesday 6:00 a.m. ET).   

We're heading up to Tallahassee this weekend to help kick off the grand opening of the newest Dick's Sporting Goods store in Florida.  Can't wait to see some familiar faces and meet new Mogan Maniacs.  It's always a good time when me, my wife Cari, Producerman and Trice spend the weekend at Dick's and hanging out with fishin' friends.  We're expecting a lot of people coming out to get stocked up on the great deals like buy one of my Flats Blue rods and get a Sabalos reel free. Plus, pick up a $10 off coupon from me and take advantage of all the other sales and sweet stuff going on.  Come by and say hello at the new store - Tallahassee Shopping Center, 1729 Apalachee Parkway - I'll be there from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. 

Hey - and we're always looking for a little "taste" of the locale too, so afterwards let us know where a good place to go and eat, drink, maybe even take in some live music.  

We just wrapped up our 2013 season yesterday!  That's always a good day for us because it means we get to take a quick break, do some hunting, hiking and chillin' out before we get back up to full swing shooting shows again for the 2014 season.  

My wife joined us on set this time, and it was nice to have her there beside me throwing the Flats Pink rod while I did my thing.  She puts up with my crazy schedule, the garage full of tackle and makes sure I'm where I gotta be when I gotta be there.  To be honest, we really can't wait for 2014 though . . . a lot of new stuff happening and new sponsors coming on board that will make things pretty exciting.  

The winner of this week’s “Show Your Mogan” photo contest is . . . Hunter Sharpe with this really nice Snook caught off the Juno Pier.   There were lots of nice snook entered this week, but gotta give it to Hunter because it's pretty challenging catching off a pier, but a snook that size off of a pier?  Phew!  Pretty tough.  Nice job Hunter!  

This is the last winner we're going to pick for a while.  Gonna take a break and change things up a bit.  Stay connected on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Google+ in the Mogan Lounge for the next contest and details.  

I've gotta get my truck ready for the roadtrip to Tallahassee!!

Until next week . . . tight lines,
