"Is this your hat?" mused our good friend Alex Landeen in an email sent to Tucker earlier this week.
"That’s my logo, but not my hat. Did you find this in Beaver Island?" Tucker responded.
"Yeah found it in the fisherman's house. Someone glued a patch to it... I have been wearing it all week." Landeen replied.
"And hopefully it has been bringing you fantastic luck??? Any pictures?" Tucker lobbed back.
Landeen promptly returned fire with this mustachioed, high kicking gem of a hero shot (photo credit: Scott Thompson) with a Beaver Island carp. I'd say that's some pretty decent fishing juju.
