Fans To The Left, Fins To The Right

by Capt. Kevin Faver, Capt. Kirk Waltz, and Jeff Lageman

Today’s show was quite two-sided; great stuff happening in the woods and on the water!

Turkey season continues, and that means the boys were out in full force.  Congratulations to Capt. Kirk, who bagged his first bird…and quite a big one at that.  It’s a great story – one that took longer to tell than it took to experience!  Capt. Kevin also had his own turkey story. It’s a jake-y tale, to be sure, but you when you listen, you’ll kind of get the feeling it’s a prequel – it’s definitely a set up for an awesome hunt that’s just around the corner.

If you follow us on Facebook (which you should), you undoubtedly saw the great white shark video shot off Fernandina Beach by Cooper Meyers.  This morning, Cooper called in to talk about the experience and just how intimidating the shark was.  That’s when it got interesting: we followed up Cooper’s call with Clay, who checked in to share his close encounter with a great white two weeks ago several miles east of Jax Beach.  His story will most definitely send chills down your spine.  But, just like a Ginsu knife commercial, wait – there’s more.

Captain Dennis Young checked in with his stories about great white encounters that may have you wanting to go back to shore because you “need a bigger boat”.

To be sure, this episode of the Outdoors Show was a great listen.

Capt. Kevin shared a recommendation that’s two years in the making!  His SeaToSummit Solution Eclipse Paddle Gloves have handled everything Kevin could throw at them, which is saying quite a lot.  These gloves provide UPF50+ protection from the sun, contoured double layer construction in high-wear areas, and a neoprene cuff with velcro closure to maintain hold and flexibility.  Perhaps most importantly, they’re half-length, which keeps your fingertips available for all the things you have to grasp and grip and twist and tie out on the water.  Now…if they would only make them in camo…

Capt. Kirk was set to host a Cobia Seminar at MarineMax, courtesy of the Jacksonville Offshore Sport Fishing Club this past week, but had to bow out at the last minute.  So, all the guys decided to share their tips on what to use and how to use them to land those strong, unpredictable fighters.  What were their tips?  You’re better off listening to find out – there’s just too much to go into here.  So click play, and when you’re done, get ready for the fight of a lifetime.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook for great stuff all week…and be sure to send us your own great pics, stories, and questions.  We’d love to hear from you!
