We’d like to begin sharing more “people behind the sleep” stories with you. Since we are based in Wilmington, N.C. it seems right to start with a fishing story.

Our chief engineer, Aaron D. is a bass fisherman. He, along with his fishing buddy Scott (they are “Team Marpac”), had a good day on the water winning 1 st place in the Team Bassmasters tournament in Castle Hayne, NC (on the North East Cape Fear River) a few weeks ago.

Here’s how they won. First, the fish. Their best five weighed in for a combined 19.10 lbs., with the biggest catch coming in at 6.32. As for the lure selection, that’s going to have to remain a trade secret. Aaron does report they use “Texas rigged soft plastics.”

But around here we know how a good snooze can help you wake up ready for a top performance. For this tournament (this is true for a lot of fishing) Aaron had an early wake up. He set his alarm for 4:00 a.m. and was on the water at 5:30 a.m.

Do you have any questions (fishing or white-noise machine related) for us, if so leave us a comment below. Or give us suggestions on what kinda of "behind the scenes" stories you want to see. And remember to subscribe.
