Humminbird® pro Gerald Swindle talks brass tacks about 2016 Bassmaster Elite AOY

Racine, WI (September 21, 2016) - It’s the story of a win that almost wasn’t…
Alabama’s Gerald “G-Man” Swindle says there were points in the 2016 season when he struggled, like the first two days of the 2016 Toyota Bassmaster Elite Angler of the Year Championship on Minnesota’s Mille Lacs Lake.

Still, the funniest man in bass fishing persevered… a little voice told him to follow his heart. Or maybe it was the note his wife Lulu puts on his brown bag lunch each tournament day. Regardless, on Day 3 of the 2016 Toyota Bassmaster AOY Championship the G-Man turned on his Humminbirds and tried to have some fun.
“The key to success in bass fishing is fishing because you love it and have fun,” says Swindle.
Now a two-time Bassmaster AOY champion, the G-Man talks brass tacks about his season and fishing philosophy in this candid video.
Congratulations, G-Man, on a great season!
