He will provide all the finest gear from Penn and Shimano but also encourages you to bring your own gear if you'd like to land a big one on your own supply. All you'll need to bring is hat, Sunscreen, non-marking shoes, drinks and food, and a good pair of sunglasses…(Captain Mark asks that you please Do Not bring Spray Sunblock)
