Cajun Baby chooses Skeeter for a reason

Cajun Baby chooses Skeeter for a reason

By Craig Lamb

Cliff Crochet, known on the pro bass tour as the Cajun Baby, has a lot to be proud of besides his south Louisiana roots. In Cajun country, boats are part of life, either for a livelihood or connection to the outdoors for recreation with friends and family.

Crochet quote about Cajun roots.

Crochet’s resume includes 9 Top 10 finishes, three appearances in the Bassmaster Classic, and a win in his backyard. That happened last October on the Atchafalaya Basin in south Louisiana. Crochet has $431,578 in B.A.S.S. earnings, and his star is rising as he gains more experience.

Crochet, like his peers, chooses Skeeter for it’s legendary performance in tournaments. Skeeter invented the bass boat, and with that mark came the first B.A.S.S. tournament in 1969. Since then, anglers running Skeeter boats have won millions in winnings.

For eight months of the year, the boat favored by Crochet is on the water from Texas to New York and points in between. At the top professional ranks, there is no room for failure, and Skeeter delivers the confidence, performance, and fishability demanded by top pros like Crochet.

Here’s why he chooses a Skeeter.

Model: Skeeter FX 21

Power: Yamaha V6 4.2L four stroke V MAX SHO 250 h.p.

Features I like the most:

The size of the front deck is a favorite. I have plenty of room to move around and don’t feel confined. That really matters when you are fishing in heavy cover. The benefit of the wide deck is having more room for casting baits into tight areas. Accuracy is better and so is lure presentation.

The interior layout has a lot of little things that are big to a tournament angler. What comes to mind, and what I really like is the recessed receptacle and storage area for a trash can. It’s removable and helps keep trash where it belongs, instead of blowing out into the water.

I also like the new design and material used to cover the cooler. It’s insulated too, but the lid is more designed to be stepped on than previous models. You get so much more with a Skeeter, and they listen to the needs of anglers more than any other boat builder.

Vacation Locations: Knowledge is Fun Too!

Most children (and adults, too) will either roll their eyes or sigh when, while speaking about vacation locations, the word “learning” just happens to be mentioned. Yes, it is a fact that school trips take all of us during our younger years to everything from museums to libraries to historic locations in order to teach us things we should know. But when thinking about your vacation, you should know that by considering journeying to a particular place that just happens to register high on the historical or educational meter, you could have even more fun.


Is Social Media Still Growing?

It was in 1999, Bill Gates wrote a book titled, “Business @ the Speed of Thought.” Within these pages, the man who became the computer world’s wizard made massively bold predictions that, at the time, sounded ridiculous and outrageous to those who read them. But when you look at how the social media realm has grown over the past few decades, it is important to take note that not only did his predictions from 1999 come true, but they are also responsible for seeing social media continue to grow by leaps and bounds to this day.


Besson Adapts Comic Book Series Novel into Hallucinogenic Sci-fi Spectacular

A couple of decades later, Luc is back with Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, an even more innovative, outer space odyssey, if that’s possible. The groundbreaking extravaganza is based on “Valerian and Laureline,” a comic book series written by Pierre Christin and illustrated by Jean-Claude Mezieres.
