If you were stuck on a deserted island and could only pick three things to bring with you, what would they be?
If I were stuck on a deserted island and could only pick three things to take with me, I would have a Game On Exo Jig in Silver, 1 oz, because of its versatility in catching almost any species of fish, a rod, and a reel to fish it with!
What would you consider as your “best day of summer”?
My best days of summer for me are the ones I get to spend in the middle of the sound on calm days, catching giant sea bass, fluke and stripers!
