Luke and I first met Captain Jeff Maggio (aka Lunkerdog) via a Google Hangout Interview back in March when we did the popular March Fishing Madness event.
Even though it was all done over the Internet, you could tell that Capt. Jeff was a reel guy…
Then when Luke and I met Jeff and spent some time ICASTing the heck out of ICAST with the guy, there was no doubt in our minds that Lunkerdog is not only a reel guy, but he is the real deal.
So when Capt. Jeff asked us to go fishing with him during the Mullet Run, we jumped all over it like a tarpon on an injured mullet…
And the footage below was the result of a late afternoon Mullet Run session with the one and only Lunkerdog.
Now I want to note that this guy was nothing short of a celebrity down there in Fort Lauderdale.
Everywhere we went anglers were yelling “Run That Dog”, they were waving at us, coming by to say hello, and we spotted a dude wearing one of the old Lunkerdog tournament shirts.
Luke and I even had the chance to certify some of Jeff’s famous 5-gallon buckets to give to some of the local “Happy Baiters”… what an experience!
The looks on these kids faces when we pulled them over and gave them a certified RTD (Run That Dog) bucket was priceless!
Keep up the great work down there Capt. Jeff.
And a huge thanks to “Lamont Andre 3000 Lunkerking Seahorse Stankonia 2liveCrew Mulletking formerly known as the artist Chip Mayhugh” for the amazing footage and editing.
