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.
