Skeet’s Beat – Packing Times Two

Bucks Falcon Mercury

SkeetBlogIt seems like all I’m doing this week is pack and organize.

Before I get to that, Lea’s birthday party was this weekend. We took Lea, her friends and Courtney ice skating during the day and then to John’s Incredible Pizza afterward. I put the little cleat slip-ons over my shoes and escorted Courtney around until she picked it up at the end and was able to skate on her own.

They were all exhausted at the end of the night, but it was a lot of fun. it still amazing to look at the girls as they age, I can’t believe how long it’s been already when it still feels like yesterday that they were babies.

I got my shipment of new Berkley Havoc baits in and some new colors of my Pit Boss. So, I spent a bunch of time in the shop organizing and boxing those up for the season. The new Hawk Hogs by Bobby Lane, Smash Tubes by Ike and Juice Worms by Boyd Duckett all look pretty good, can’t wait to use them.

Other than that, I’m packing up to get ready to fly to Japan for the Osaka Fishing Show with Minoru from Lucky Craft. I’ve been to that show three or four times in the past, but not since I won the Classic and not since the country was hit by the earthquake and the Tsunami.

It will be interesting to see how the Japanese fan base has grown; I’ve been able to do some media with Japanese publications since winning the Classic in 2009, but we’ll see how it has changed since that and the catastrophe over there.

I’ll be trying to work on a few videos from there to share at Advanced Angler from the show. It’s a big show, and Japan always has cool stuff to show off, so hopefully I’ll have a few cool things to show off when I get back next week.

15 hours on a plane, it’s a long flight, but I’m looking forward to being there; talk to you when I get back.
