Team BDC/Weldcraft Takes 2nd Place at NSIA Hogs N’ Dogs
Team BDC/Weldcraft was proud to receive 2nd place honors in the annual NSIA Hogs N’ Dogs Combo Salmon & Sturgeon tournament sponsored by Fisherman’s Marine and Outdoor. The unique tournament format allows teams of 3, 5 or 6 members for target Spring chinook salmon or sturgeon on the Willamette or Columbia rivers. Nearly 100 teams competed.
With heavy rains preceding the event, presenting a risk that the Willamette could rise and be out of shape by early morning, Team BDC/Weldcraft choose the Kalama area of the lower Columbia. With competition for the prime spot expected to be very heavy, the team’s Weldcraft CV 206 was launched at 5:30 am and ran downriver in pitch black to secure the coveted spot. By daybreak, more that 50 boats crowded the area. Over the course of 7 hours, only a dozen salmon were landed amongst all boats in view, three for Team BDC/Weldcraft. All were caught with k14 sardine wrapped Luhr Jensen Kwikfish, on Lamiglas Kenai Kwik rods and Okuma Convector line counter reels. Team members included Alex Brauer and Trey Carskadon from BDC Advertising, Jerry Spiess and Wayne Lewis from Weldcraft and Dave Lanphear from Pacific Boatland.
