During Jay's run as a full time Redfish Tournament pro, he was fortunate enough to get sponsored by a number of great companies. He remains very thankful for their support and while hes had to reduce his tournament activities to better accomodate family responsibilties, he still fishes a lot and still uses and recomends their products.


Jay's comments: While Jay isn't currently running a Bluewave, he has owned a 2200 Pure Bay and a 220 Deluxe Pro and highly recommends those boats in particular and Bluewave in general. If you are looking for a well built boat by a family owned company that stands behind their products 100%. Look no further.


Jay's comments: Check out the new Skeleton series rods. Super light with everything you need and nothing you don't.


Jay's comments: I count on Master Marine for all my boating needs. They listen to their customers and provide great service before and after the sale. Give them a call at: (210) 681-BOAT


Jay's comments: I've had a number of my props repaired at Nettle's and they always come back looking and working good or better than new. They have also been very helpful to me in figuring out the right prop for me to use to get my boat to perform at its best.


Jay's comments: We switched to the supercaster line of reels last season due to their enhanced castability and have been using them to sight cast to redfish. The extra distance has made a difference in my fishing success.


Jay's comments:Aqua Dream is where I get my sight casting spoons. These spoons have a unique action that Redfish really love.


Jay's comments: Stiffy brand push poles make the best poles in the business. Check them out and see their push poles and other fine products


Jay's comments: I have been using Tuf Line XP 30 and 50 pound on my bait cast reels and 20 pound on my spinning reels. Tuf Line XP has proven itself for me in numerous tournaments and is now on all my reels. Next time you spool up give Tuf Line XP a try.


Jay's comments: David is my go-to guy for full custom rod building and rod repairs/modifications.
