Today I visit with Jeff and Alec Boechardt from Steven Point, WI. This father-son team traveled to Trempealeau, WI to compete in the 2018 Catfish Days Fishing Tournament; which was held in Pools 6, 7 and 8 on the Mississippi River. Alec shares with us his various experiences from participating in his High Schools Bass fishing team. Jeff tells us that fishing for him is all about spending quality time with his family and experiencing what nature has to offer them. It’s the unexpected that creates memories that last a lifetime. Jeff also will tell us why he thinks artificial baits are the game changer when it comes to catching more fish. Grab a pole, cast with confidence and turn your pole into a question mark.
