2016 artificials only season is underway! (VIDEO)

https://youtu.be/6tlhbFzK1tk
Last night was the first tournament and We had a good showing. I broke my phone and had to run away from a storm. We ended up with 2 small trout. Luckily the bite was a bit slow for everyone. Hope everyone made it home safe.
Please enjoy the video and stay tuned for more awesome action!

    Thanks! And yes I did see they are scheduled in St. Auggie. I love them live but I am getting too old to handle the crowds these days.

    They are very relaxed and fun. Some of the guys are too cool for school, What I mean by that is... If you don't have a 50k+ boat they wont talk to you and assume you have no idea what you are doing. But for the most part the guys are cool. Come on the "13th" and find me. I will be the *** hat filming everything with the old yellow backcountry playing music too loud.
    I will introduce you to the right folks.
    No one! will make fun of you...If they do Ill hit em. I fish jax all the time "with artificials" and We came up with two dink trout this week, on a really good tide too! We got stuck in the rain and didn't even make it to the weigh in.... Its 3 hrs, anything can happen.
    25.00 a boat, 2 persons max per boat, all artificials, Best/heaviest of two red,trout,flounder. 1 fish wins if no one else catches two, two trumps 1 even if its heavier than both fish.
    Next tourney, we are in palm valley so I am in the same boat you are... I have fished there for about 2 hrs ever.
    for more info search (Wednesday night tournaments) on facebook. Let me know if you need anything else.

    Yes, That is an 2001 169 BC it still has the 161 weight sticker rated for 90hp Built in Sarasota FL.
    It has been an awesome machine, It can probably perform better than I can use it.

    The next tourney is next week. 04/13/2016 at 5:00 "Meeting" at the palm valley ramp.
    I took the day off to do an interview with one of the anglers, I will be down there pretty early. Find me and I will get you saved in my phone and keep you updated.
    We tend to switch it around sometimes anyway, Depending on tides and weather. We will switch locations and dates accordingly.
