The Bronzeback Blowout will soon be here, Saturday, March 2, 2013 from 3 to 9pm. This is our 14th Blowout and as usual, it promises to be a fun evening. Our featured speakers will be Jeff Little (his bio is below) and Illinois stream specialist, Steve Pescetelli. In addition to the guest speakers, we'll have lots of raffle prizes that can be won for just a $1 ticket, dozens of silent auction prizes like guided trips, week long vacations, smallmouth artwork and a Jackson Coosa kayak! Dinner is included along with a couple of other surprises. Everybody needs a cure for cabin fever and this is it. Spend an evening with a couple of hundred other smallmouth fanatics all for the bargain price of $25. Tickets MUST be purchased in advance.

See you there!

 

Jeff Little, Featured Speaker
Owner of Blue Ridge Kayak Fishing LLC and Confidence Baits LLC, Jeff Little can't put it down. He's on the water in all months, trying new tactics, shooting video and teaching others how to do what he does. Certified by the American Canoe Association (ACA) to teach Basic River Kayak, Jeff started Blue Ridge Kayak Fishing as a means to introduce kayak anglers to the skills they need to be safe and effective kayak anglers. He taught the ACA lesson plan, meshed with his own angler- and pattern-specific topics to kayak anglers in the mid Atlantic for ten years. He then turned to video as a means to teach a broader audience in the fast growing sport of freshwater kayak fishing. Many of his YouTube videos can be found on the Videos link of kayakbassfishing.com. His DVD series started with River Kayak Fishing Skills, a video version of the ACA class he taught. It covers river safety, pattern development, stealth approaches, basic whitewater maneuvers, forage assessment, trip planning and more. The subsequent DVDs are seasonal tactics for river smallmouth, starting with summer and fall patterns. His winter patterns DVD is coming out soon, and will be available at confidencebaits.net along with his line of hand crafted lures, perfect for river anglers.

Jeff served as president of the Potomac River Smallmouth Club. He credits that club with a rapid learning curve of river smallmouth fishing. "Getting out on the water with different club members each weekend, and learning their favorite presentations and baits - you can't pay for that type of quality education." Jeff holds pro staff positions with St. Croix Rods, Wilderness Systems Kayaks, Do-It Molds, Adventure Technology Paddles, Assassinator Baits, HOOK 1, Kokatat, and YakAttack kayak fishing gear. He lives in New Windsor, Maryland, but considers Pennsylvania rivers, the Susquehanna and Juniata his home waters. He plies these fisheries in kayak and cataraft with his sons Sawyer (6 years) and Cooper (4 years). "Fishing with my kids is like relearning it all over again. Each milestone catch they make is huge, certainly more dramatic than when I caught my first 20 incher, or 4 pounder." His sons have routine cameos in his YouTube videos, posted on kayakbassfishing.com.

The Blowout is THE best way to kick off your 2013 smallmouth season.

Remember, this is open to anyone so ask a friend or family member to come along. It's a great time.

Hope to see a BIG turn out this year.

See you there.

We are always looking for raffle prize donations for the Blowout. If you or your company have any items that would make a good prize for the Blowout, like a gift certificate to a restaurant, store, gym, or whatever, bring it with you or drop me a line and I'll make arrangements to get it from you.

If you haven't bought your ticket yet, what are you waiting for?

If you are on the bubble, you should go if just to listen to Jeff. I'd go just to listen to Jeff. He knows his stuff.

 

 

 

If you can't make it to the Illinois blowout, maybe live downstate. We have ours in Indiana the same day in Zionsville, IN (just north of Indy) .

 

Good luck ISA. Fun event.

Oh man, did I fail to mention it's all organic and that we are having it catered from Whole Foods?

 

Not a hormone in sight, MSG doesn't even exist, fat content of .0000000009

 

We would never feed our healthy fishermen and fisherwomen anything other than the best we can afford.

 

Even the Vodka is potato.

 

Ice for drinks from Artic glaciers.
