Meet the Winners
This California yellowtail was caught in Magdalena Bay (Mexico) on a 4.5” Panther Martin swimbait. Massive yellows balled up macs in 20’ of water next to rocky shore, and wouldn’t touch metal jigs. Soft plastic on a slow twitching retrieve did the trick.
Fishing the river most of the day with flies. One toss into the nearby lake with regular gold\yellow and WHAM! Beauty of a Cutthroat Trout. Water was cold but with a fish like this, you don't care if you can't feel your fingers.
Caught his huge salmon while fishing in Root river WISCONSIN, this huge monster took my all silver panther martin spinner that is smaller then any other spinners ive ever used
We were fishing Large Panter Martin Spinners on an incoming tide in Ocean City MD. We were fishing an inlet where the water rolled over a jetty. The drop was from 12 to 63 feet deep. The fish were hitting hard on the deep side.
My son and I woke at 3am and drove to the N Santiam in OR. I hooked this 29" steelhead on a solid gold #15 P.M.(seen in it's mouth). He hooked himself in the armpit with another panther martin during the river dance of landing this beautiful fish.Memories
Bigger fish were keying on minnows close to shore a #9 black gold blade did the job a 30" bow wacked my panther and took me for a ride. She was released to fight again.
