Operation Outdoors – Home and Filming with Kerr

Bucks Skeeter Yamaha

EdwardsBlogHello Advanceangler.com viewers! It has been a slammed four months on the road for Rebecca and I. Matter of fact we were only home for seven nights in the first 101 days. Our Operation Outdoors USA soldier program which benefits the nonprofit Lone Survivor Foundation was a monstrous success for us. Traveling to 11 major cities we were able to collect a little over 3000 soldier signatures on our new Phoenix bass boat!

This boat will be donated to the new Lone Survivor ranch in the fall and used weekly as a therapy/healing tool for wounded warriors. If you’re not familiar with the Lone Survivor Foundation it was founded by retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell which wrote the New York Times Best Seller “Lone Survivor”. This book is amazing and has inspired Rebecca and I to help pay it forward to help those who have given so much to their country. You can learn more about the Lone Survivor Foundation by visiting their website at lonesurvivorfoundation.org

The last several weeks have had us on the road filming for season 4 of Jarrett Edwards Outdoors and I really feel like this season is going to be the best one yet! We just returned home last night from Lake Havasu which is on fire! We filmed with great buddy and past FLW/US Open winner Justin Kerr. Now Justin is a great guy who does many positive things for the sport. It really surprised me though how quick he had us on the fish…especially since he just arrived from the last FLW tour event back east and hadn’t seen the lake in several weeks.

Jarrett Edwards and Justin Kerr Big FishFishing was outstanding as Justin put us on several four-pound smallies and a couple largemouth about 6 pounds! I believe we filmed for about 6 hours and had about 24 pounds in our five largest! As I write this we are heading out the door to the Delta and the Columbia River in Washington and truth be told…I can’t wait to start catching them again! I will keep you posted on our season 4 launch in midsummer as we have some very exciting news coming down the line…have I told you how much I love my job???

For now It’s so good to be home…if only for a night. It’s kind of weird not having to sanitize the Hotel room daily. I’m guilty of always looking out the window every hour to check on your rig parked in the dark parking area or worry about what restaurant to eat at etc. Being home is so nice and something I will not take for granted again.

Ahhh… no place like home! Till next time remember to wear your life vest, too many boaters have already lost their precious lives this year in tragic accidents on the water…many who could have been saved. Have a blessed week ahead!
