Ish Monroe – Up and Down in Florida

Bucks Skeeter Yamaha

IshBlogWell, Sometimes it goes and sometimes it don’t… My River2Sea Biggie Poppa crankbait was ON FIRE throughout practice and the first day of the tournament and

I really felt like I was going to do very well in that Open and possibly have an opportunity to win it, but Chris Lane did a great job and smoked everybody!
But I am really excited about Biggie Crank, you know, it is going to be pretty awesome. It is one of those crank baits that I mean, I can wind it as hard as I want and it will still run straight. The colors are hot – I’m just super excited about it.

Got to shoot some video with it – that and Bling; my new spinnerbait – you’ll get to see that coming soon from River2Sea. That was pretty awesome. We got on another lake down in Florida and caught a bunch of different fish on it so, I am really excited about the bait for the upcoming tournament season.
So, besides shooting video on my newest baits and fishing a tournament there really hasn’t been too much else going on.

Got my Lithium batteries installed on my boat from the Smart Battery guys. Pretty excited about those too; those worked really well over the course of the last two weeks and I don’t think you can run ‘em down! I’ve tried hard to run those things down. And it’s pretty incredible!

So, Mike Dean at Moto-Stop is building me a custom box for ‘em; these things are going to fit in my boat. I mean, my three trolling motor batteries are a total of like 90 pounds which is taking like 2/3 of the weight out of the boat.
Which means, my Z521 Ranger is going to run a whole lot faster!

Home for a week; gotta get stuff done with Uncle Sam; you know, taxes, everybody’s favorite time of year! I gotta get that done and move forward on to what’s going to happen for this season.

So, other than that, talk to you guys next week. See you later.
