Things I Have and You Don't -- El Especial

For those of us who knew Mike Bucca back when he was “Triton Mike,” a friendly fisherman looking for his place in the industry, it’s a little bit surprising to see him at a boat show, selling his namesake Bull Shad swimbaits. The dude is a rock star – posing for pictures, signing autographs, kissing babies. Watching him at the Richmond Fishing Expo this past Saturday reminded me of my 2007 trip to the Yokohama Tackle Show, where fishing fans lined up 100 deep to shake the hand of Yuki Ito of Megabass.

Last week Mike Bucca (AKA, Triton Mike or Bubba Bull Rat), put up a Facebook posts asking his friends to identify their “favorite tackle shop and why.”One hundred seventeen comments later, I’m now aware of a lot of good shops that I’d not previously heard about.
