Sometimes you have to break free from convention in order to learn that typical patterns can be a trap. These are pix of three stripers I caught in a back channel that I typically don't fish because it's almost stagnant until the tide pushes in. These stripers created a wake when they were in pursuit of the micro crab pattern I was throwing because the water was that skinny. Oddly, a hooked fish didn't seem to cause the other bruisers to become skittish or disinterested.

Volume 1: MEXICO - The Expedition Begins
The plan is simple: bridge the language gap, convince the Federales that you’re not trying to smuggle cooking oil into the country to corner the market on cheap fish tacos and at the same time, spend little money, sponge off the local delicacies and see if you can kill stomach cramps with a combination of tequila and lack of sleep. Trying their best to avoid break-ins, break-downs, break-ups and broken rods, join four fish bums as they cover 8,000 miles of Mexican dirt in hopes of finding out-of-the-way locations—with fish, and escaping with captured memories.
Armed with nothing more than fishing rods and cameras in hand, the GEOFISH series will follow 4 fisherman turned filmmakers as they travel around the world in a diesel pick-up converted to run on cooking oil while soaking flies at every opportunity they get. With a new obstacle around every corner and the determination of setting foot where few people dare to go, the angling quartet cuts their own path through some of the planets most rugged terrain on a mission to find the world’s greatest spots never fished.
