Breaking the ice on an Elite Series season

Seth Feider is one of the many rookies that joined the Elite Series in 2015. On Day 1 he struggled with the fickle fishery and didn't boat a keeper all day. Technically, Feider still had not caught a keeper as an Elite Series pro, but as of 5 minutes ago that has all changed!

 

Feider brings a 2-pounder aboard his Rapala wrapped boat and now he can exhale and fish just a little more loose than normal. Granted, he has a lot of work to do if he wants to fish tomorrow, but that has to feel good for him.
