First off, I wanted to thank The Hook-Up for helping out with the tourney. It wouldn't be possible without them! Please stop by to say hi to our friends John, Ben, and their staff members when you're in the area! You can also check the store out online at www.thehookupoutfitters.com
I also wanted to thank the guys who came out and fished the derby. It was awesome to hear that for some of you, it was your 1st time fishing a tourney! For those who didn't, you really missed out. The weather was perfect and fishing was great! Lots of Zoners showed up and it was really nice meeting you all!
Thank you Jim Everett (MBC AOY) and his son Vance for helping me with sign ups, weigh in, and check in. Also, big kudos’ to the ASU bass fishing team for showing up and cooking hot dogs! You guys rock!
