Diawa demo w/ CT Outfitters and the Blackhawk

Post by RedneckAngler on Fri Jun 24, 2011 3:49 pm

Went out on the Blackhawk Wednesday night for a Diawa demo day put on by Gary and the guys at CT Outfitter. Unfortunately, Mother Nature and the fish gods weren't too cooperative, but we had a good time and the idea was great. We left at 4:00 as the tide was changing over and headed out to the Race. Diawa's rep (name?sorry) had provided about 20 different outfits covering there whole 2011 line (including some electric reels that sounded as if my fish finder kept going of). Not much happened during the slack tide, during which we fished some of the new butterfly jigs in the pouring rain w/ no success. As the tide began to pick up, so did the rain. I switched over to a 3-way jig setup, and quickly had the boats' second fish, a BIG blue. Pretty soon a few more stripers came over the rail. Looked like the fishing was going to heat up, but it never really panned out. A real nice fellow fishing beside me did land 2 pretty stripers, but all told probably no more than a dozen fish came over the rail before heading back at 11:00. However, the company was good, Capt. DuBrule and crew were great, and CT Outfitters put together a top notch trip. To finish the night, the pool winner collected $500 and a new Diawa Saltist outfit, a second outfit was raffled away and hats and T-shirts went to everyone. Thanks to those who put this together, and I look forward to the next trip!
