Mustad How to: The San Diego Jam knot with Ricky Teschendorf from 13fishing

Another Mustad How to:

I shot this yesterday at the 13 fishing office. Not too bad for shooting outside with construction noise all around me.

Originated as a fast and reliable way to tie heavy jigs by west coast tuna fisherman on long-range boats. It is quick and easy to tie.
Here Ricky Teschendorf from 13fishing shows us the San Diego jam knot.

500 lb sword fish and how to rig a squid for sword fish.

This is Captain Brandon Mullar and Lauren Alvarez a couple friends on mine down in the Duck Keys. Brandon is passionate about catching sword fish and is very consistent at catching them especially during the day time.

Here is a photo of them with a 500lb fish caught this last fall.

I also had a chance to shoot a video of how he rig his squid for day and night time sword fishing. He also said it works well trolling for Marlin.



How To: Rigging the Mustad Ultrapoint Grip-Pin for weedless fishing. Get under those mangroves where the fish are.

Mustad Grip-pin, weedless jerk shad hooks.

So as of late I have been using the Mustad Ultra Point Grip-pin worm hooks to fish jerk shad near mangroves. This allows me to not get snagged while I try to get under the mangroves where the fish are.

It dawned on me that some people, like me might not have heard of it and how well it performed. I decided to do a short rigging video of how to use them.

Mustad How to: upgrade your lures to 3x strong, no split ring pliers needed just a nail clipper.

Here is a one in a series of How to videos I’m making for Mustad.

Ever loose a nice fish because the stock hook on your lures bend? Mustad makes a 3x strong treble hook that is much stronger than most stock hooks on lures.

I got Adam Walker to show you how to change them out using just nail clipper.

Installing a Powerpole Micro on a small craft, the Wingmaster Sandpiper 150

The Powerpole micro is a remote controlled stake out anchor deployment system made by JLmarine. is a perfect companion for a kayak or a boat up to 1500lbs. It’s a light weight (less than 10lbs) durable and as you can see in the video, simple to install.

Before setting off on the road trip to Louisiana and Texas we installed a Powerpole Micro on the Wingmaster skiff. (Sandpiper 150)

We decided to shoot an installation video of the process so JLmarine can use it on their website for small skiff installation.

How to tie the Mahler Single strand mono shrimp fly video

We shot this at ICAST 2014 Orlando at the Mustad booth a few days ago. The tier is no other than Joe Mahler, the inventor of the fly himself.

Joe shows us how to use one strand of mono to tie his fly from start to finish. The video is uncut and it runs under 8 minutes.
