Meet the Winners
Figuring we'd take advantage of the record early ice-out, my friend Tracy and I were trolling a one ounce stainless Panther Martin. It did the trick.
Nailed this beautiful rainbow on a pm spinner and ultralight rod. Great fight, especially since it wouldn't fit in my hand net!
Caught Saturday March 10 in southeast MN on a #9 gold Panther Martin. Casting upstream this pig of a trout came out of the cut bank came out and just crushed my spinner! One heck of a fight and one beautiful fish with some amazing rusty coloration.
After travelling to my fishing spot, i realized i had only two lures; a jerkbait and a #9 Gold Regular Panther Martin. As usual, the PM came through, and i landed the biggest MN small stream rainbow of my life.
My buddy Mike and I were fishing a little trout creek catching 10-12" stockies along the way. Out of nowhere this big 24" Brown Trout ate my regular silver PM spinner and bent it right in half!
first bowfin on an artificial lure. this one grabbed a gold pm out in the middle of the channel and put up a great fight. glad pm lures work so well for these beautiful under appreciated fish!
Caught on lower Deschutes River in Central Oregon on a size 15 Silver/Blue Panther Martin and 8 pound test line.
Caught this Stripe while trolling on Smith Lake in Alabama. Was trolling with a Panther Martin Umbrella rig with a Chartreuse Double Trouble teaser from Panther Martin. Best rigs i have ever tried on this lake !
