Helping hands

Editor’s note: Gerald Swindle has recently arrived at his newest spot, but Chris Mitchell shares this note about a stop he made along the way:

Gerald Swindle just stopped by to check on Jordon and offer to follow him in to the weigh-in. Kelly thanked him and Gerald headed south. These guys are competitors, but also very much friends and allies. This is not unique to bass fishing; instead, it is something that’s prevalent. Last year, Ish Monroe helped Justin Lucas make the run to Sacramento to ensure his victory.

It’s great to see this in person.
