Hitzman Sets Tone for 2019 Season!
The river called our name and we came! Nine NAPRA anglers battled cold weather, fast current, and a tough bite to kick off the 2019 season at our Pre-season event, the First Cast. The first cast set the tone as Hitzman reeled in a 11" beauty! The rest of the anglers perked up and cheered his catch but growned silently as they realized he was going to be on his game. Marvin Reynolds equaled Hitzman with a 15" beast five minutes later! Then the bite drifted off. Hitzman's final talley of 19 1/2 inches bested Marvin's 15" followed by a tie for third between Travis Lakes(10") and NAPRA newcomer Josh Nelson. NAPRA would like to thank its sponsors Panther Vision, Maniac Custom Lures, Frickers and more for making our First Catch a great event!
