Who's the first person I see when I walk through the jammed packed doors at ICAST this morning? None other than Aaron Martens, reigning Angler of the Year on the Bassmaster Elite tournament circuit. I've known Aaron since he was a teenager in southern California, winning tournaments on the hugely competitive WON and Bassmaster regional circuits. He is quite simply one of the top two or three best bass anglers on the planet today. And a dear friend.
"Gord, you've got to see this," Aaron said, as we hugged each other. "I know you're into finesse and this is a killer."
The "killer" to which Aaron was referring is an ultra finesse MegaBass jig Head with an intentionally lopsided propeller teamed up with a MegaBass Spark Shad.
I'll be featuring the combo in my ICAST feature in the 2015 Fishing Edition and will tell you more about it in the days ahead. Suffice to say, when Aaron Martens tells you something is a "killer" you just know it is going to work!
Stay tuned for my next ICAST update.
