What a whirlwind of a weekend! I had a great time at the Crappie Expo in Shreveport talking tackle and fishing with some of the best in the business. I'm honestly an introvert by nature, but talking is easy when surrounded by like-minded people who share a passion.....CRAPPIE FISHING!

I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I was to not enough product to sell, but I made due with what I had.
I was able to giveaway some free jigs, showcase some samples, and waffle 4 jig boxes.

I was honored to talk shop with some of the big boys in the business and made some great contacts for future endeavors ( too many to name, but you know who you are).

I want to thank all of my customers who showed up and stopped by my booth to introduce themselves. It truly means so much to have people believe in our product and give such great words of encouragement.

A special thank you to Lane Palmer for being such a great friend and helping me out. And we sure couldn't have done it without Greg!!!

And it goes without saying, but I couldn't have brought this little side hustle as far as I have without the support from my prostaff. These great fishermen continue to believe in my product when it truly counts. Sometimes that's with clients on a guide trip, and sometimes it's on championship Saturday. No matter what situation these gentlemen continue to believe in my product and I'm honored to have you guys.

Clay Gann, Todd Froebe, Kayle Ward, Dan Langston, Jordan Sanders, Jason Holleman, Dillon Gossett, Robert Loar, Stephan Scuddar, Dillon Hackler, Lane Pamer, and Jason Machala.....more to come as well 😉.

We miss you Dan Langston and hope to see you on the water soon!
While we didn't bring home the trophy this time, these guys are champions in my book and I'm proud of the year they had in 2021 (with the CAT championship to go).

It was good meeting you too! Unfortunately, I wasn't at Palestine. We drove straight home and now I'm back at the vise.

My bad Greg!!! I told you I worked with a guy named Gary Boyles.....I guess I've officially lost my mind 🤪🤪

Greg was a lifesaver and a blast to chew the fat with.

I don't sell the boxes on my site. I usually reserve those for orders of 80 jigs or more.
They aren't too hard to make with Plano 3700 series boxes and closed cell/medium weight foam bought online.

I just don't have enough inventory to just sell the boxes.

If those boxes were for sale as is...I'd be in for a few. They would make great Christmas gifts for a few folks.
