Small Waters Fishing met with Mike Iaconelli, Gary Klein, Boyd Duckett, Bobby Lane in South Carolina to fish a series of sand pits managed by Marc Deschenes of VIP Adventures.

We also wanted to test some of the latest lures and tackle from Pure Fishing, including the new line of Berkley Havoc plastic baits.
