Well folks, this week’s adventure was jam packed full of fishing with a great group of friends across our state of Montana. Although the fishing was awesome, I never actually landed a tangible fish. You see, I did do a very realistic job of landing a few bruisers at Snappy’s Sports Senter for our annual banquet day presentation. What an amazing store, very knowledgeable staff, and an awesome place to give a jiggin’ clinic. And the support from the local Flathead Walleyes Unlimited chapter and fishing public was huge and humbling to dad and I. So from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for coming down to Snappy’s to see our presentation on such a beautiful weekend day. If you have not had the delight of visiting Snappy’s, MAKE SURE YOU DO!! Their fishing manager, Chancey, runs one of the most impressive fishing departments in the state!!

Since the Madison/Gallatin Walleyes Unlimited banquet was the same day as the Flathead chapter, we couldn’t be both places at once. But a very intimate part of us did in fact travel up to Bozeman to make the banquet. Dad hand crafted a beautiful Glass Minnow “Fire Tiger” themed rod to be auctioned off at the banquet to raise $$$ for Walleyes Unlimited!! We are very proud to announce that this year the rod went for $575!! Not quite last years $1100, but hey, that’s a lot of funds for a good cause and somebody will be “Jiggin’ the Dream” in style.

Stay tuned for the next flavors of custom rods…we will be donating to the Walleyes Unlimited state banquet in Glasgow and the local Helena banquet. Yellow Perch?? Parrot?? Jailbait??
Cheers to “Jiggin’ the Dream” in 2013
