WHO IS GARY YAMAMOTO

This legendary bait designer began fishing with FLW in 2000. His first top-10 finish on the Tour came in 2003, placing ninth at Kentucky Lake. In 2011 he broke FLW’s Lake Champlain record for heaviest day’s catch, measuring in at 24 pounds and 4 ounces.

Yamamoto moved to Texas to spread the word of his lure company to the South Eastern part of the United States. This company would eventually evolve into a very successful business, still operating and sponsoring several other pros on the Tour today. Yamamoto states that he also enjoys saltwater fishing in Louisiana.
