What you should know about Gary:
How Gary started fishing
Used to go down to a nearby crek in rural Ohio. Didn't really catch anything there but it sparked an interest.
Aspirations or goals with fishing
Favorite way to fish
I usually resort to fishing soft plastics either Texas or Carolina rigged. When pre-fishing I lie to go with reaction baits like spinner baits and crankbaits trying to locate fish.
Most exciting fishing experience
Taking my grandson fishing. There is no better feeling than the joy of seeing him catch fish. He is eager to learn and is becoming quite the fisherman.
How Gary preps for a tournament
Three favorite search baits
Best tournament finish and what you did that day when you were fishing.
Probably the win on the Chickahominy River November 2019. Five casts yielded five bass that weighed 20.55 pounds with an 8.42 kicker fish.
