Derek lost his leg in a freak accident last Summer and the TacticalBassin family banded together, raising over $40,000 to help him in his time of need! We promised that if you supported Derek, when he was ready we'd get him on the water and help him catch a new personal best. Come along on the first day of that quest as we hit the water together.
We began the day in search of a reaction bite. We found the best success on Alabama Rigs early but we quickly turned to deep water finesse fishing as the sun rose. As the day progressed we started throwing big trout swimbaits in search of that new PB.
Listen closely to Derek's incredible story. Its a huge reminder of how quickly life can change forever. One moment you're shopping at the grocery store and the next you're fighting for your life! Life is fragile, strive to never take it for granted.
This is just the beginning of our time with Derek. We're going to pursue his new PB this Spring and will bring you guys along for the journey. Below is a breakdown of the gear we used on the water.
