FTRCast Episode II: The Attack of the Pods

ICAST fast approaches. A little less than a month remains until the tackle world convenes in the swamps of Central Florida. With that in mind, FTR Managing Editor Ken Duke and Digital Editor Joe Sills delve into Super Tuesday, and the birth of ICAST On the Water, in FTRCast Episode II.

“I think it’s a story that a lot of people might not know,” says Sills. “ICAST On the Water debuted last year thanks to the ASA, but it’s possible that some of the inspiration for that project came from a renegade event dubbed Tackle-X in 2014. Ken Duke had a lot to do with that event, which was held in this sort of clandestine compound somewhere near Orlando. Tackle-X proved you could have a water-based event at ICAST, and I think that’s part of the reason we can enjoy ICAST On the Water today.”

In this week’s episode, Duke and Sills discuss the re-opening of salmon season in the Puget Sound and Bassmaster Classic Champion Edwin Evers’ involvement with the Wounded Warrior Project. Both reveal who they’re fishing with at this year’s ICAST Cup, and the search for a consistent theme song continues.
