Restless Native: Alaska, Part I: Bobby Stoker & Jared Boyce
"I caught a 125 pounder, and the guide looked at it and said, 'We gotta turn it loose.'"
— Bobby Stoker recapping his trip to Alaska
Today’s episode is interesting.
We’re going to hear some stories from two different generations, in the same industry but approaching it from vastly different angles. Bobby Stoker is a third generation tobacco man. Jared Boyce, better known by many as simply “Outlaw,” is a famous YouTuber in the tobacco and outdoors space.
I recently fished with both of these guys in Alaska, chasing King Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, and yes, even those unworthy little black bass (more on that in the show). We had a great time, and one night we decided to bust out the podcast and video gear and record a conversation.
I've worked with Bobby and Stokers a lot over the years, but I wasn’t sure what to expect when I met Jared. I was pretty sure this guy was a content creating genius, having tapped into a perfect niche—one that was underserved on the content perspective, and one he understood well.
Jared is as I expected—very intelligent, and there's more to him than you can get from his YouTube channel. That said, his YouTube channel is full of hilarious parody and wild hunting and fishing content, so be sure to check that out.
This interview closes out in the weirdest way. I can’t even tease it. You just have to listen to it to find out what happened. It was completely unscripted and unpredictable. I mean, you can’t predict or set this up. If you don’t believe it’s real, find Jared’s youtube channel and watch the video. I haven’t seen his video yet but I can’t imagine this part didn’t make it in.
