New season, new rig
By Luigi De Rose
New Z21XL Nitro and Mercury rig for Erik Luzak in 2022. “I’m super pumped! This new Nitro is a faster hull design and the storage is unbelievable. The adjustable seats, the front deck, everything…it’s very well laid out.” Explains Erik.
Erik’s fishing the Toyota Series Northern along with a full CSFL season. Being closer to home allows greater opportunities to fish more local events something he missed dearly while competing on the Tackle Warehouse Tour over the last few seasons.
“When I sold my Ranger last fall, I wanted to still be part of the White River Marine organization as they have an amazing contingency program that rewards Nitro, Ranger and Triton boat owners for winning. The bonus cash prize is great incentive when picking out a boat…plus Nitro is such a great company to work with. I’m supported by the Vaughan, Ontario store and they’re such nice people to work with.” States Erik.
“All my sponsors were fully behind me when I declined my 2022 invite to fish the tour.” States Erik. “PowerPole, Lunkerhunt and FXR Pro Fish, Nitro and Mercury pledged to support me regardless if I continued to fish the tour or not. Covid made travelling a challenge. It just became too difficult to manage.”
Luzak is bi-coastal and splits his time between his home in British Columbia and his Balsam Lake, Ontario residence. Adding the border crossing into that mix just made it almost impossible.
