Surf Fishing the Mexican Desert: This is NUTS! (Pt 2)
Today we are at a very, very remote beach here in Cabo San Lucas and we’re lucky enough to go with a family of locals. This is going to be awesome. Now we were here the other day on ATVs and we met this guy, Anselmo is a he was working at the the ATV place, Cactus ATV, he saw all my fishing rods and we really hit it off with fishing so today we met up, and uh, he took us back to the same beach and we’re going to be doing some fishing for for whatever bites, this beach is really good because it’s very isolated and it’s not fished too often so all the fish here are very powerful and strong, it’s going to be a good time. I’m going to be using the Super Salty Squid, shrimp, just come here and watch. [music recorded live in Mexico] [Brendon laughing]
[Erin] What’s going on? [Brendon] We’re in a minivan and we’re going down this really sketchy dirt road that, uh, we’re trying to get to this special beach here that we know there’s a lot of good fishing and we’re following this local who we met in, uh, the ATV store– in the ATV uh…
[Erin] Tour. [Brendon] The ATV tour. He’s showing us how to get–how to get to the spot, and there he is. [Erin laughing nervously]
[Brendon] Holy crap! [Senko Mom] Whoo….

So we’re doing this thing where we give you guys a quick update after our episode as to what we’re doing, uh, where we’re going from here, because a lot of times, I don’t think you guys realize, the episodes that you’re watching were recorded around mid-July so you guys aren’t really getting the full view of like what’s actually going on with us lately um, so that’s why we want to introduce this segment. Anyways, so our announcements today: our meetup is going to be in Baltimore, MD uh, around the dates of August 20th to the 31st, we haven’t really settled on a date exactly yet, um, I have a location in mind that supposedly has a lot of fish there um, and the premise of this meetup is we’re going to be testing our brand new bait no one has ever tested this before– minus–minus Tommy Tek, Tommy Tek, he caught some nice fish deep sea fishing with this, but we’ve got our new bait called the Super Salty Sacs, and I’m not going to show you too much of it but I’ll let you know: it smells great and I think it’s going to work really well. Um…
[Erin] Tentative date for that meetup is probably August 26th tentatively! We’re not quite sure yet. Okay, so we–it– the date right now is probably going to be August 26th. Um, but that can change. Keep up with us on our Facebook Community Group if you want to learn more about that um, and be updated about that because that’s where we communicate a lot Senko Skipper Fishing Community it’s a private group, but I’ll let ya in. Um, next announcement: we’ve got our new knot tying book that is available on our website, senkoskipper.com um, basically it’s about what knots to tie and when to tie them um, certain knots go really well with certain lures, certain knots go really well with certain rigs, and I teach you exactly how to tie each of these knots and also what to tie it on and a description as to why it’s the best knot for this lure or this rig, but this is available on senkoskipper.com it’s digital copy and you can print it out and bring it with you wherever you go um, and final announcement, we’ve got a lot of squid! and we’ve got new bags! Look at the new label! Our new stickers. They look pretty good. and, I mean, the squid looks pretty good too, look at that. So this is all available at senkoskipper.com that’s it for today.
