New video from SJ , featuring Don Musso of the Super Strike Lures

First and foremost I would like to think that all of you have gotten trough this storm in good shape. I think you can say “blow me Irene” now, you have all been through hell last few days. I just got my power yesterday afternoon. I hope all of you either have it back or are getting it asap

We like to think we are different then most websites out there. No, not only because already gave away a contents of a small tackle shop in giveaways. Or only because we try to actually make a difference with our catch and release contest instead of just paying a lip service. This by no means is meant to be a pat on our backs…that is coming in little

What we mean is that we try to bring you the stuff you won’t read anywhere else. We are mainly talking about our magazine but this blog is an extension of the magazine, so yeah, on the blog too.

I mean seriously, how many times have you seen anyone talk about this subject you are about to watch on this video? And how often do you get to hear it from legendary plug builder Don Musso, the creator of Super Strike Lures ?

Yeah, we go extra step to entertain, educate and inform our readers. No pat on the back needed but do watch this video. It will make you a better informed surfcaster. Maybe it will even help you in catching a seagull or two


Part two of today’s blog is strictly for self-serving purpose. Because all of you know that I am all about promoting my greatness as an angler, writer, photographer, videographer, construction worker, blah, blah, blah….Yeah, right. More like googan who can’t write a blog post without misspelling half of the words, who cant cast more than 50 yards and whose only claim to fame with a camera is being in the right place at the right time. Hey, maybe that is a skill ?

Since even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes, I guess this is my day. I know many of you are faithful readers of On The Water magazine. I been subscriber for a long time, I even been blessed enough to write for them. I guess they thought that my writing is something they their readers would enjoy. I always liked the whole crew there, especially Gene Borque, their past editor who gave me a chance to write.

This week their unveiled their annual surf issue, and used my photo for a cover shot…which is cool. I am not much of a blowhard when it comes to what I do, but seeing my photo used as a cover shot is cool. Btw, in case you are wondering, the new book by William Doc Muller, Surfcaster, features mostly my photo’s including the cover. In fact, the picture on the cover of Doc’s book and picture that is the cover of this month’s On The Water magazine were taken five minutes apart.

Talking about being in the right place at the right time…

    Congratulations on the cover shots. I’ve also been enjoying the shots in Doc’s book. I’ve almost finished it, and I’m dreading that because I really don’t want it to end.

    I’ve wondered about the seagull thing, too. I recently had one try to make off with a Crystal Minnow I was trolling behind my kayak. Other days, not a second look.

    Keep up the good work and thanks for what you do.

    I wonder how many people watched this video and missed what I feel is the greatest tip. Its the video shot of the Little Neck popper swimming just below the surface. In my opinion, that’s one of many differences in SS plugs over other surface lures. The ability to swim it, especially in a current or roiled surf. This, along with the casting ability, the ability to handle tough toothy critters, and entice big stripers is a staple in my plug bag. And listening to Mr. Musso teach is always a bonus! Congratulations on your photo prowess Z. What surfrat doesn’t like great shots like that?
