In Episode 25, hosts Joe Opager and Jody White review the Walmart FLW Tour event on Beaver Lake and talk with Matt Arey about his win.

<b>Back up your waypoints for maximum performance</b> <br> If you're using your electronics to their maximum potential, it's likely that you're accumulating thousands of waypoints on your unit. Did you know that your Lowrance unit is similar to your computer in terms of its capacity? The more information you store on it, the more memory it takes up; consequently, the performance of your unit is slowed to a degree.

The Walmart FLW Tour has been a big part of my adult life, as I'll relate in future blogs that involve some of the tournament stories that Stetson and I share.

After meeting Stetson at summer church camp when I was 15, we started dating a year later in December 2003 and were married in 2009. "Girlfriend" and - eventually - "wife" weren't my only titles in those days, as I was also Stetson's fishing partner for numerous tournaments and circuits while we were dating and at the start of our married life.
