Bernie Keefe

Location: Granby, Colorado

Favorite Fishing Memory: Fishing with my cousin Joe – he got me started in fishing when I was about 6 years old. We would ride our bikes to local farm ponds and catch Bluegill and Bass. He taught me about turning over logs for crawdads, catching tadpoles and frogs for bait. As we got older I was able to repay those lessons with trips for larger lake trout.

Favorite Fishing Memory: Over the years, my fishing memories were made through countless hours fighting trophy fish in unforgiving conditions.

My feeling of accomplishment was indescribable!

Robert English

Location: Atlantic City, New Jersey

Favorite Fishing Memory: My greatest fishing memory is from when I was in Florida with my grandfather for summer fishing in the back bays. I hooked up with a huge fish that dragged us around, which my grandfather thought was probably a Skate. Only having 6 lb. test mono I slowly worked it into the boat and came to find out it was a huge Snook, the first I ever caught. I'll never forget the expression on his face when he saw the size of it. It's memories like that I hope to share with others.

Rob Wendel

Location: Kenosha, Wisconsin

Favorite Fishing Memory: My biggest brown trout ever bit right at the boat during Salmon-A-Rama. I took a break from trolling and decided to reel in one of my lines to change out baits. There was about 100 feet of line out that I was reeling in as fast as possible. Right as I ran out of line I saw this enormous Brown Trout smash my lure. It thrashed around for what felt like an eternity but it was clearly a huge fish. I was able to net the fish right as the hooks came out of its mouth. The fish was 26.24 lbs. and took first place in the Salmon-A-Rama Kayak Division.
