2018 Tournament Recap Videos
Gerald Swindle’s 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series at Grand Lake The 2nd Bassmaster Elite Series event of 2018 took us to Grand Lake in Oklahoma. Had a great week and caught em good throughout the event. Day 1 was stellar and it got tougher everyday, but I adjusted and managed to find enough fish for 25th place. I had 49 pounds, 5 ounces and got great points for the Toyota Angler of the Year race.
Gerald Swindle’s 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series at Kentucky Lake The 3rd event of the 2018 Bassmaster Elite Series season was at Kentucky Lake in Paris, Tennessee. Every time we've been to this fishery in the past its been a deep bite and an offshore tournament. This time around a lot of fish were shallow, but they were beginning to transition from spawning to post spawn. I managed to finish in 31st with 46-2 over three days of fishing. Caught a lot of fish on a jerk bait and spinnerbait with a little bit of slow fishing mixed in.
2017 Tournament Recap Videos
TOP 12 at Sam Rayburn – 2017 Elite Series #5 Knocked out my first Top 12 of the 2017 season at Sam Rayburn. That place is full of fish and I caught fish on numerous baits! My main setup was a Green Pumpkin Chatterbait and I fished it around hydrilla. Also caught some on topwater (Zara Spook) and a jerkbait.
2017 Elite Series #6 – Lake Dardanelle Lake Dardanelle gave us some crazy conditions for the 6th Bassmaster Elite Series event of the year. There was a lot of dirty, high water, plenty of bait for the bass to feed on and every bite was crucial during the event. Finished up in 31st with 37 pounds, 3 ounces and got some good points.
TOP 12 at St. Lawrence River — 2017 Elite Series #7 I put together a good event at the St. Lawrence River, which was the first tournament of the Northern Swing for 2017. Managed to get a Top 12 and finish in 10th. It was good momentum and my second Top 12 in three events. Crazy to think 76 pounds, 8 ounces will only get you 10th with this group of anglers!
