Apex 2022

In His own words:

I used to race motocross before this. Now, I have two boys and love spending time with them. I also like spending time developing my own baits and have my own bait company – Cloutier Custom Baits. The colors that I create are for the West Coast and the western fisheries. I am looking forward to the APEX format, the circuit being televised and fishing against the top 32 pros on the West Coast to showcase our skills and see who comes out on top.

Behind the angler:

Nick began fishing with his grandfather and his tournament life launched at the age of 18.

In the boat:

Nick’s favorite technique is punching. He fills his boat with his own
Cloutier Custom Baits punch skirt, Woo! Tungsten weights, Reaction Innovations Sweet Beavers and Lazer Trokar Flippin’ Hooks to get that done. He also carries Cloutier Custom Baits vibrating jigs, G-Ratt’s Sneaky Pete glide bait, a variety of Powell Rods teamed with Daiwa reels.
