Our Boat Sank!!! It Can Happen to You. Be Prepared.



Fishing is fun and fishing tournaments is really fun. But every time you get on the water, there are risks. In September of 2014, I had a close call fishing a B.A.S.S. Open tournament on Lake St. Clair. Lake St Clair is an amazing fishery and this was my very first time to be on the lake. As a Co-Angler I was lucky to be paired up with Chris Flint as my Pro for the day. Chris grew up in upstate New York and has fished big water his whole life. He is a great fisherman, a registered boat captain and knows how to find fish on St Clair. We had a banner day catching 74 smallies. Both of us had very nice bags and were excited to get back to weigh in. Unbeknownst to us, mother nature and fate had other plans for us. I explain what happened in this video and explain how to prepare for a similar event if you are ever fishing big water.
