Sue caught this slab while pre-fishing at the last tournament we competed in using our tried and true Road Runner Lures. We had a blast this weekend tournament fishing.

The Thundermist Lure Company Eyedrops have been an awesome addition to our crappie fishing arsenal! Whenever I put these on a hair jig or pair them with a Bobby Garland plastic, they never disintegrate making for the perfect scent.

With crappie season getting wound up, let the cam-action of Tru-Turn Hooks in Blood Red help you catch more!

There’s nothing more important than having total control over your boat, and Yamaha Outboards paired with my Power-Pole Total Boat Control Drift Paddles give me just that. Couldn’t recommend this combination enough!

I’m not sure what’s more fun: fast runs down the Alabama River or long days spent trolling the water with Sue. In either case, MTech Lithium batteries keep my boat powered and going strong for whatever we may find ourselves doing.
