Fishing season is heating up at OL: the 2013 Tackle Test is complete, we picked up bass fishing tips from competitors at the Bassmaster Classic, and a UK angler landed one of the largest marlin of all time. And now we’re looking for the best fishing photos shared by you on Instagram.

We’ll choose our favorite photo posted on Instagram to win this spinning combo: a Falcon BuCoo Micro rod and an Abu Garcia Cardinal STX reel. Tag us @outdoor_life and use the hashtag #olfishpic to get your photos entered into the contest and featured on our website and Facebook page (also, your profile must be public). And follow us on Instagram at @outdoor_life.

Here’s the review of this combo from our tackle test:
The $130 Falcon BuCoo Micro matched with a $50 Abu Garcia Cardinal STX offers a well-rounded combo that excels at throwing a variety of baits. The BuCoo, with its lightweight blank and super sensitivity, fishes like an ultralight with the power of a heavy-action.


The Cardinal’s no-nonsense design will impress users with its seven sealed ball bearings, which enable the graphite rotor to spin smoothly. The machined spool holds 175 yards of 8-pound-test line, and a 5.1:1 retrieve ratio chews up 29 inches per turn for quick, repetitive casting.

We can’t wait to see what you post. The last day to enter is March 14, 2013. We’ll announce the winner on Friday, March 15.
