Skimmeroutdoors and Gibbs Lures go a long way back. When Matt from Gibbs found out about the San Diego to Cabo San Lucas fishing trip he sent along an assortment of beefy lures to test out on Tuna and Wahoo and any other pelagic species we may cross paths with. We look forward to testing these new prototypes out on this Pacific adventure.
Over the last decade the fishing industry has seen many improvements in clothing that protects the angler from the UV rays of the sun. There are many advantages to these garments aside from providing protection from the sun. The material is designed to breath allowing you to stay cooler and negate the heat of the sun's rays on your skin. Another advantage is you will need less sunscreen and the material is very thin allowing more room in your suitcase. Lastly the fabric is treated to resist stains and drys very quickly. These long sleeved shirts from Deep Ocean apparel are a must in the tropics.

Headed out at sunrise, we found some open water in a favorite spot, while setting up gadwalls and widgeon were flying in. After setting up we had our limit of blacks right away. It was awesome watching black ducks land 10 feet from the boat over and over again. Decoys kept getting iced and tide was getting low so we had to pack in the season.. Made it back safe after plowing through some ice. Had a great season.. Rich
This weekend I will be packing my gear for the big trip ahead. I need to make sure I don't forget anything and it will all fit in my bags. I will be bringing a DSLR camera HD camcorder and a gopro. we plan on capturing many hours of underwater footage and hope to document a Wahoo blitz with the Troll Pro. I've learned from experience all the little things to pack and there are many. Tim C. Smith
Paul Mandella posted this video on YouTube a few day ago. Does anyone have any incite why this happens? Please leave your comments.
Thanks for the video Paul.

The fishing trip of a lifetime is approaching fast. One of the tools we will be using for capturing video from outside of the boat will be this Phantom II quad copter. We will now be able to get camera angles that at one time could have only been possible with another boat or helicopter. Let's hope we don't fly her into the water. Remember starting February 1st visit the Fisherman.com to follow all the action on the Excel fishing Trip.
