It might have been luck. It might have been the boat, a Duckworth 235 Navigator. It could have been the secret spot on the Columbia River which they had to secure at 4AM. Fact is, it was teamwork. The crew of Alex Brauer, Jerry Spiess, Trey Carskadon, Shy Masters and Dave Haukeli have gone from a rag-tag bunch of anglers to a well-oiled machine. Taking their second 1st place finish in as many years at the 2015 NSIA Spring Fishing Classic, and placing on the podium 4 or the last 6 years, it all comes down to hard work on the water. Rods are rigged to precision. Baits are changed religiously every 20 minutes. When a rod goes off everyone knows their tasks; clear the deck, toss the anchor, get the net and stay out of the way (or Jerry will toss you overboard.) Thank you Duckworth for the finest fishing machine on the water!
Team Duckworth brought their “A” game to the 2014 Spring Classic salmon tournament taking First Place and Big Fish. The team of Jerry Spiess (Duckworth Dealer Representative,) Alex Brauer and Trey Carskadon, (BDC Advertising,) Sky Masters and Dave Haukeli landed a limit of 5 Spring Chinook aboard the 235 Navigator. 80 teams and over 200 anglers participated. Ironically, the team had no idea the 14.50 lb. biggest fish in their catch would ever take top honors, but it did. The 14-pound Springer is considered average weight but nothing larger was weighed in on the day.
