It seems there’s never a dull moment around Gerald Swindle, but this one was extraordinary. Swindle has leaned hard on a 1/4-ounce buzzbait in this tournament, entering the day in 4th place with 27-6. And it’s working for him again this morning. He really leaned hard on one hookset, snapping his rod and breaking his line. In true G-Man fashion, he recovered, scooping his line from the water surface and hand-over-hand “reeling in” another small keeper. It was then that Swindell gave a quick seminar on the research and development of fishing rods, explaining it as only he can.
