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!
There’s lots to look at and take in at the Seattle Boat Show (Indoors +Afloat) and always something new for boating enthusiasts of every persuasion. The Seattle Boat Show is the largest show on the West Coast and the third largest in the U.S., and as such it is often the place where manufacturers choose to debut their new models. 2014 is no exception. But there’s also tons of fun to be had at the Show. http://www.seattleboatshow.com/
