Musky, Walleye or Inshore? What’s Your Fish with a Legend Experience?

PARK FALLS, WI – St. Croix Rod – handcrafters of the Best Rods on Earth® for nearly 75 years – recently launched its completely reengineered Legend Tournament Musky, Legend Tournament Walleye and Legend Tournament Inshore series of American-made high-performance fishing rods. These all-new blue rods are built on new SCIV+ carbon blanks for even lighter and stronger performance and are finished with all-new premium componentry and ergonomics to elevate the angling experiences of musky, walleye and inshore anglers everywhere.

To celebrate, St. Croix is offering six lucky anglers the opportunity to win one of these legendary new rods, three of which will also win the opportunity to experience use their new rod under the guidance of an equally legendary angler.

The St. Croix Fish with A Legend Experience will give three Grand Prize Winners the opportunity to fish a legendary rod with a true legend of the sport  – either musky fishing with Joe Bucher, walleye fishing with Tony Roach, or inshore saltwater fishing with Captains Rich Tudor and/or Tom Rowland. Three additional First Prize Winners will receive a St. Croix Legend Tournament rod and St. Croix apparel up to an approximate total value of $700.

Fish With a Legend Experience Bucher

Musky Fishing with Joe Bucher

Celebrated musky angler, fishing writer and ambassador, innovative lure designer (who has NOT heard of a Bucher Tail?), blues man, and arch enemy of Esox Masquinongy, Joe Bucher is the definition of legendary angler. He has landed and released more muskies than most anglers can dream about. Joe has put in the time developing his uncanny sixth sense for catching muskies, and he’s excited to share all of it with our Musky Experience winner.

Fish With a Legend Experience Roach

Walleye Fishing with Tony Roach

Tony Roach grew up in northern Minnesota where he has been a widely respected fishing professional for over 20 years. Tony is a dedicated walleye angler who guides full time while also competing in tournaments across the Midwest. Hiding behind Roach’s friendly smile and humble demeanor is a vast and sharply honed understanding of every aspect of multi-species angling. Our Walleye Experience winner will be the beneficiary of this knowledge.

Inshore Fishing with Rich Tudor and/or Tom Rowland

Captains Rich Tudor and Tom Rowland need no introduction to saltwater anglers. No matter the species, no matter the technique, they have the knowledge, patience and passion to get their clients into fish. Their popular and long-running Saltwater Experience television show educates on all aspects of inshore fishing, and Captains Rich and/or Tom can’t wait to welcome our winner onto their boat.
