2013 Elite Series Evan Williams Bourbon Showdown at St. Lawrence River
St. Lawrence River - Waddington, NY, Aug 8 - 11, 2013

A legendary boat driver for me today

8:15 am EDT, Aug 8, 2013 | By Dave Mercer

On the water today with some bass fishing royalty. Our camera boat driver is Dick Garlock, if you don't know that name you should he is a former Bassmaster Classic Qualifier & a St Lawrence River legend. There are not many people on earth that can claim to have spent more time on this water way than Mr Garlock.

 

The big question this week is to run to the lake or not to run. I asked Dick if he would make the long run to the lake if he was fishing this event & before I got the question out of my mouth he said NO WAY!

 

He believes that it would take at least 1 1/2 hours to just get to the mouth of the lake in perfect weather & you are driving over way to many giant fish to get there. I talked to several anglers that don't agree but we will have to wait until the final fish is weighed on Sunday to find out what the right call is.
