By popular demand, we are going to start offering brief tips to help you improve your catching and enjoyment on the water. Our latest is the following video, we are calling “Stay in Your Lane”. When fishing three people it is so annoying when you’re about to make a cast to that perfect little piece of structure when suddenly out of the corner of your eye you see a line coming from the back of the boat all the way across your “zone”. Sometimes the person in back finds that structure too tempting to wait for, and all you can do is put your hands on your hips and wait till the line is clear. You don’t want to cuss out your fishing buddy, but man, it’s tempting! Follow this tip to keep everyone happy and trust us, you will still catch plenty of fish in the middle or back of the boat. In fact, on this trip Alex caught the day-maker (year maker?), a 23″ trout, off the stern!
We recently created a seminar space at our HQ at Eye Strike. We used it to host the Lowcountry Kayak Anglers club Toys for Tots Tournament captains meeting, along with hosting the Summerville Saltwater Anglers January membership meeting.
We have decided to start an event we are calling the Eye Strike Artificial Army Seminar Series, named for our Facebook private group Eye Strike Artificial Army. Our intention is to offer seminars that are “above and beyond” in terms of information and instruction and in general focused on improving your inshore fishing using artificial lures.
To promote our seminar series we have created a new page on our website named Seminar Series
Our first seminar we are very excited about. It involves a subject that many people want to learn about: How to better understand your sonar so you can set it up and interpret it to use it to its fullest. After all, what good is it to invest in all this technology if we don’t know how to use it. Most seminars on the subject gloss over the setup and interpretation. We intend to “dive deep” into this so that we all understand it better.
Our speaker is Capt Ben Powers of Reel Time Charter Adventures. Ben is a Shimano pro-staffer, local guide, and commercial oysterman and has been mastering setup and interpretation of his sonar lately. He has been taking snapshots of some of the amazing things he has found using his side imaging sonar and is excited to share his learning with our group.
