Happy to have Porter's as one of our new dealers for 2016. There has been a lot of demand for Thumpers in the Lake Palestine area this year, and Porter's is the only store that I'm going to ship to in that area this year. It's conveniently located off 155 next to Saline Bay, and is very close to the host marina for the Big Bass Bash April 9-10.
Jason is a phenomenal guide on east Texas lakes. He knows how to catch quality fish and navigate any of those lakes (Tyler, Palestine, Fork, Cedar Creek, etc.), and I know that because he has helped me out a bunch. If you have an afternoon free before next week's big tournament, let him take you out in your boat and he can show you how to run Palestine from Kickapoo to the Dam. I asked him to take me out last year to show me the run, and it was worth EVERY PENNY! If you look at the results from this tournament in past years, the locals cleaned up. I know they know how to catch them up there, but they also know how to navigate the lake and get to any spot they want to fish. It's a big advantage to know how to get to where you want to fish safely and the time he can help you save will mean a lot more time with a bait in the water and in the right areas of the lake.
