Fishing against one legend and racing against another

Getting invited to fish the 3M invitational in Park Rapids MN is something I don't take for granted and am very honored to get invited and fish with/against these hall of famers.  This year was one of the most fun times I have had at an event, 3M folks are amazing hosts.  

I was able to finish one place a head of Jimmy Houston who is and always will be one of my fishing hero's.  I watched him all my life and have great respect for that this man has done for the sport.  Not very often I get ot say, "I beat Jimmy Houston", so I had to take a picture and share it with everyone.  I finished 7th in the event and Jimmy came in right behind me in 8th.  

We found our fish in weed beds and were able to fool most of them with a black and blue 1/2oz Strike King Hack Attack jig tipped with a Strike King Rage Menace Grub.
