Partner and I fished the ABT on Lake Wheeler yesterday. When the water hits full pool we head to the bushes. During practice we found a couple stretches that had big females, like the one pictured, so we thought we had a plan. We were boat number 203 and were worried our first stop would be covered up, but when we arrived no boats present. TVA dropped the water 8 inches the night before, but those big females that were lock on the bed stayed. We caught 8 fish over 3lbs with our best five at 21.07, good enough for 2nd place and a nice check. Congrats to the winners with over 23lbs of smallies. Equipment, Rod, St Croix Xtreme 711HMF, Reel, Shimano Metanium MGLXF, Line, 20lb Seaguar Tatsu, with a River2Sea Flippin Hook and tungsten weight and a black creature bait.

Tight Lines,

Put my St. Croix 6 light action Triumph rod to work today on some big bluegills in southern Wisconsin!

Great day on Green Bay in Oconto, Wisconsin chasing walleye. Launched at 5:30 AM and caught the sunrise of a sunny Spring day. Looking for warm, stained water in depths 8-15, we were casting #6 Rapala Rippin Raps on spinning tackle. Best colors were silver/blue, chartreuse/black back, and a custom purple/antifreeze green. Used a 610 St. Croix Legend Extreme rod, size 2500 Daiwa Ballistic reel spooled with 12 lb. Sunline SX1 green braid and a 3 section of 14 lb. Sunline Shooter Clear Flourocarbon as a leader.#stcroixrods #bestrodsonearth #daiwausa #sunlineamerica #rapala #walleye #walleyefishing

Day 2. IMTT Spring Classic. Weather change with clouds, rain and east winds. Have raised 2 muskies. Just need a grabber for fish #2.

Full cork handles on the Legend Tournament Walleye rods! I know many of you have been asking for it and now they are back!

Great day at the Boaters Exchange Fishing Expo in Rockledge, FL !! #stcroixrods #bestrodsonearth

Take A Vet Fishing is a nonprofit organization that I can say, without a doubt, is truly a God send for so many Veterans and their families.

I am honored to know David VanDorne who is a huge part of Take A Vet Fishing and I call him my friend!

Today, Dave, Rich Gallagher (also a great Friend) and I shared the water together on Dave's boat.

Between stories and laughs, I hooked up with a few fish that gave me some good fights. I was casting my St. Croix Legend Elite 7'MF Spinning Rod with a Daiwa Ballistic LT reel, at the end of my line was a few different Live Target crankbaits that gave me a 3 species day. (Northern Pike, Channel Cat and a Muskie).

If the boat never saw a fish all day, it would still have been filed in my memory bank as one of those great days spent with quality people. But, the boat did see fish...so BONUS!

Had a good tournament at Pueblo today! Finished 3rd out of 54 with 10.38lbs. All fish were caught on #stcroixrods. Great start to the season!!

Always a good time swinging streamers and high sticking nymphs at some wild browns. Pulled the 9 7wt Bank Robber and the 10 4wt High Stick Drifter from the arsenal today. Penns Creek was running a little high today but that didnt stop us from pulling a few gems from her. #stcroixrods

This big girl(5.98) was the first fish on my new Legend X C70MF at Diamond Valley Lake. This is a very versatile model. Great for many applications. #stcroixrods #greatestrodsonearth #legendx

Ive been asked hundreds of times about extending Ranger Fisherman rod boxes, so I made a short video about it. #StCroixRods #RangerBoats #MercuryProTeam

Day 1 IMTT Spring Classic in the books. Numerous fish caught. My partner Ron Haynes got us on the board around 10 am with a 31. Fish was caught on a glide jerk bait. I lost a fish during the afternoon while trolling.

Weather is finally breaking and time to fish my Croixs without wearing gloves! #bestrodsonearth
