Great work @e3sportapparel we cannot wait to see these in person. The EFL referee jerseys were awesome and they looked to have even taken it up a notch for the cast.

Today we feature a young man and his fish. We met Today we feature a young man and his fish. We met @bassmaster_gerrell a couple of weeks ago at a pick up game of football between 6 of us at the Nederland High School track and field. Once we found out his IG handle we became fast friends.

For the next couple of days Gerrell checked in to let me know how he and his buddies were doing and where they were doing it. "Coach Pat we'll be at the field today at 12", "Coach Pat I see your big trailer at the apartments", "Coach Pat look what I caught at your apartments in a pond"... @bassmaster_Gerrell landed this 7 pound beauty, took pics, enjoyed and then like a true bassmaster released it to be caught again one day. Great job Gerrell, that's a hawg for sure... Gerrell hit me up to ask "coach, what's a good caption for my IG post".... psst, comon man, that's easy.... on a over-cast day with drizzling rain??? "It's raining cats and hawgs".... :-) I know, I know, it's a gift. 😂

Gerrell caught this beauty throwing a black Senko with chartreuse tipped tail. His line of choice is H2O express 10 pound test rigged on his Abu Garcia reel mounted to his Abu Garcia rod. Wow, he even uses our sponsor's products. Gerrell will get to pick through our big @berkleyfishing boxes of plastics and maybe we can hook him up with some cool @abugarcia_fishing swag... Great job Gerrell we look forward to following you on IG and seeing more big bass uploaded to your page and then released.
