King for the Weekend

Capt Blair Wiggins at Dick's

I sure felt like a King in Texas this past weekend. Me, Producerman and Trice were in Houston all weekend and celebrated the grand opening of 6 stores - 4 Dick's Sporting Goods and 2 Field & Stream stores. It was a blast, and a BIG TEXAS-SIZED THANK YOU to everyone who came out to meet us, check out the new stores, pick up some great tackle deals and just spend time sharing fish stories. We had a blast, and I really felt like a King with that kind of warm welcome!

Capt Blair Wiggins with Fans

Speaking of Kings . . . how about catching some smokers? Well, that's exactly what Capt. Chris Camps has me doing in this week's episode from Tampa Bay. When Capt. Chris called to say the Tampa Bay fishery was going off, I didn't give it a second thought. I just grabbed my gear and my Skeeter SX240 tower boat and headed over. I love being up there, driving and looking for fish, and fishing under the Skyway bridge in it is pretty darn cool. Hooking into smoker kingfish that day was just the icing on the cake!

Check out "King for a Day" on Pursuit Monday at 7 a.m. and Wednesday at 12:30 a.m. (ET). If you miss it on TV, just catch the replay on our YouTube channel.

I'm heading down to Boca Raton this weekend to open another Florida Dick's Sporting Goods store. I'll be in the store on Friday morning from 8 a.m. - Noon and then again on Saturday from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. I'll help you pick out the perfect Flats Blue or Flats Pink rod and FREE Sabalos reel to go with it. Need some lures? I'll help you find the right DOA, Mogan Series Mirrolures and Pro-Cure scent to go with it. I can even show you the perfect knot to tie on your Seaguar fluorocarbon and Smackdown braid. Come out and see me!

Until next week . . . tight lines,
