Panther Martin Photo winner

Hold the pancake batter and put down the spatulas. Did these folks actually pick my photo for the monthly contest winner? Dusting off the inbox of my e-mail this morning I see a letter with “Winner” in the subject line.

“Clearly this must be a mistake or spam of some sort.” I mutter while working on my second cup of morning coffee. Upon further review it looks legit. Finally I get some kudos from the mainstream media even if it is a humble photo contest submission.

Public acclaim for my fishing exploits is virtually non-existent outside my blog for many reasons. A few fish pics and some shameless bragging is more than enough reward for me after the trip is over. One aspect of acknowledgment that I can’t resist however is the occasional photo submission. If you want to get in on this, check out the contest info and submit a few pictures with your favorite Panther Martin catch. Throwing a crimp down on those barbs is a nice touch as well.


Photo acknowledgement goes to Don. Beauty shot on this one, man!!! Thanks again to Panther Martin.

Good luck and good fishing.

Not too shabby Matt, 50 bucks will buy a lot of Panther Martins!

The best lure ever. Bought my first one in 1968. Lost count years ago, the number of trout caught on it. Way to go.

Congratulations! Panther Martins are my favorite spinners, but I haven't fished for trout this year as I've been traveling.

Congratulations! Winning ANYTHING is pretty cool, but that's a beauty of a fish, so a photo contest for it is only fitting!

Late getting here, Matt, but just wanted to add my congratulations on a job well done with the picture. Of course, that awesome trout you landed on a Panther Martin sure had a lot to do with it, too.
