The night before the fishing trip, Butcher’s top high efficiency sales dealers stayed and socialized at the Silver Side Lodges on Bayou Charter’s property. Butcher’s Vice President, Sales Manager, and Gulfport TM hosted the dealers.

The next morning everyone met at 5:30am at Bayou Charters, run by Capt. Charlie Thomason and his All-Star team of professional guides. Many people know Capt. Charlie from his co-hosting on ESPN Outdoors Redfish Cup Series, formerly of Fish-N-Game report on Fox8 in New Orleans; from his teaching Inshore University seminars at Academy Sports and Outdoors; or from

After leaving on boats filled with refreshments, Butcher Distributors and its Trane Dealers soon began catching fish. They spent the morning filling their ice chests to the brim with fresh redfish. However, after stepping off the boat, the real reward of the trip was presented: being able to sit back, relax, and eat some boiled crawfish and shrimp while someone else cleaned their fish for them to take home. Everyone left with bags of fresh fillets and sore arms from all the catchin’.

Sarah Grimball with Butcher Distributors marketing department invitingly asked “Did you miss out on all the fun and fishing? If so, contact a Butcher TM for information on how to earn a spot on the Parts Fishing Trip.”
