Fishing, Cowboys, Golf, and Tattoos
October 12, 2023
Bonfire 170 took place in Brandon, Mississippi, on the Reservoir with crappie fishing as the goal. Local fishermen, competitive and record holders alike, volunteered to take four of our participants out on the water for two days. The group caught a lot of fish and had the chance to see the latest in fish-finding equipment, making for an awesome experience. From scanning the bottoms and seeing some gators float by, those that had not seen Mississippi were very excited and happy to enjoy nature in a way they did not previously expect. The crappie fishermen were true professionals and made the group feel immersed in a sport that was new to them, answering questions and coaching along the way. For those that had fished bass or catfish prior, this was a totally different experience, with 20 foot poles and hunting techniques; a new perspective on fishing.
