just wanted to tell everyone about fishing with gary

Postby paul19057 » Sat May 10, 2014 10:31 am

Hi guys
Back in jan. My fishing buddie and I decided to fish lake chickamauga in tenn.
Not soon after that I was getting some goodies from the tackletrap ( is73 and a nautilus) :D and emailing gary a few times back and forth that I asked him if he ever fished that lake?
Long story short he not only told us where to stay ( blue water campgrounds) but he took a monday and came down and guided and fished with us , showed us the layout of the lake And some of his honey holes with the promise ( if you tell anyone where these are he has to k ll us) my lips are sealed.
With garys help it made the weeklong fishing trip much more relaxing and me more confident boating around the chick.
If I had to give gary a nickname it would be "hookset" cause he does not play around when he gets bit.
Thanks gary for everything
Paul krawczun

Thanks for the kind words Paul, you're quite welcome!

I'm glad you and Stan had a great time on your trip to Chickamagua. I really enjoyed spending the day with you guys and sticking a few fish here and there too ;) Keep in touch and you'll have to show me around some of your northern waters someday!

Hi again guys.
Well gary and I fished lake champlain for 4 days starting may 25th of this year.
We fished out of plattsburg ny and hit a few spots for prespawn sm.
The smallies sure did like the swimbaits gary brought with him but he only brought 2 and they only lasted 2 days because the northern pike seemed to like them also.
All 4 days we caught alot of smallmouth, on the last day where we were fishingthe water temp was around 65 degrees and in 8 ft. of water we had sm coming in to spawn , sm locked on their beds and large mouth starting to cruise in.
For me it was a great fishing trip and learning from fishing with gary was more than I could have hoped for.
Here's a pic of gary with a smallie and the swimbait.
Thanks for reading
Paul

Why is almost every guy in the fishing industry named Gary?
