June is upon us and we;re off and running or boating I should say as fishing tournaments have kicked back off nationwide to include out efforts with Redfish Tour, Texas Team Trail, and Collegiate Bass series all back on the water in the past few weeks. We’ve seen all sorts of scenarios come into play with social distancing during the event on Sam Rayburn that had us operating an event in a drive-through format for the first time ever. Then in Alabama, it was a bit of a scaled down BoatUS Collegiate Championship this year however we still celebrated 15 years of college fishing with one of the strongest fields to date as 24 of the top 25 ranked schools competed on Pickwick and Wilson lakes and we had 80 schools show up to fish. WOW! It’s always a humbling experience to see all those college anglers in one spot.
Not to be forgotten is all the work we do in late May and June in preparation for deer season. Fawns are dropping all over, we’re filling feeders, moving stands and making plans as well there for those hunts that will be here soon. In fact, we’ve been getting a lot of new product that will be released shortly for hunting season and some of it…well you’ll just have to stay tuned to see it in action and read about it.
As you flip the pages of this edition you’ll see new boat projects, updates on fishing lures, new product launches from several companies, and some awesome look backs at various events! I hope you enjoy it and thanks for being a part of everything we do whether as a partner in our products or just a fan of our work. We appreciate you all.
