Back in August, I was contracted by Outkast Tackle to do some product photography and videography for some of the items in their line. I've had the majority of them completed for awhile now, knowing that they were going up on their Tackle Warehouse product pages and not so much for social media. I'm happy to say that the videos are now live on their website and available for your viewing pleasure! Go check them out here and maybe pick up a few jigs while you're at it!
This past weekend, the final regular season Elite Series tournament was held on the Mississippi River out of LaCrosse, WI. Our good friend and fellow angler, Seth Feider went into this tournament in 69th place for Angler of the Year standings. In the beginning, he was told that he had a slim to none chance of making it to the last event of the year which is they AOY tournament being held this weekend on Lake Mille Lacs which is about an hour and a half north of Minneapolis. Since he is the only angler from Minnesota fishing the Elites, he would have the ultimate hometown advantage. If he was to going to make it in, he would need to be in the top 50 anglers.
If you live in Minnesota, chances are you either have a family cabin that you frequent or you have friends that do. We are fortunate enough to have one of our own that my grandparents purchased back in the 60's and we still go to to this day. It's nestled about 3 hours north of the cities on a serene lake that really doesn't see all that much boat traffic. It has it's fair share of pontoons and fishing boats but nothing like the traffic you can see on some of the lakes in the city. Which makes it the perfect getaway for the weekend, where you can breathe in that fresh country air and see stars like you've never seen them before! We've also seen some pretty awesome wildlife up there in our day. One time we had a family of black bears in the tree right out our front door!
I recently had the opportunity to work with Navionics again to film a video on how to activate their SonarChart on the various nautical electronic units that are available. We were able to enlist the assistance of Paul Michele, National Sales Manager w/Navionics and Seth Feider, Bassmaster Elite Series Pro which was fun because it took us to a few new filming locations. One of them being sunny Florida! For the final piece, all we needed to do was get Josh out on the water to film his part and then I was ready to put all the footage together. Easier said then done since he has been home 3 days in the last month. As you can see from the pic above, I had a helper in Kigen this time. Even though he was totally trying to get all up in the video. Some dogs always have to be the center of attention.. Hope you enjoy!
A few days ago, Josh and Seth put on another one of their webinars about Finesse Fishing and Clear Water. Since both of them have been out of town for the last month, there was no time to put the presentation together beforehand, so we were scrambling the day of to get all the content we needed. It started by all of us meeting out on the water at 6am to get some pictures of the different setups and techniques they use.
Hey there -
I'm Bri! Lover of food, wine, and photography that is currently traveling with my professional bass fishing husband along with our cantankerous rottie, Kigen. When not traveling you can find me living the lake life off the shores of Lake Mille Lacs in Isle, MN. Pour a drink, pull up a chair and join me as I journey across the country documenting it all along the way!
