Lonnie Gerdes is your 2014 Angler of the Year!!!

Posted in Bass Club on October 17th, 2014 by Brad

Growing up around the Gillespie Bass Club since I could carry a fishing pole, I remember listening to my dad tell stories about fishing trips and how the day on the lake went. Sure some of these were probably fish tales, as many anglers have, but one thing you couldn’t deny was the fact Lonnie Gerdes was always a name you would hear or see in the list of the Top Anglers. The Gillespie Bass Club was founded in 1975. Lonnie may not have been a founding member but I do believe he joined the club within the next couple years. Lonnie dumps his heart and soul into this club. Along with many, many hours on the water. He is a darn good fisherman and knows these lakes very well. Lonnie is no stranger to fisherman of the year. He has claimed the title in 84, back to back years of 02,03 and then again in 06. So it is no surprise that a 2014 title was waiting for him. On that note, lets take our hats off and congratulate one of our well known members on his accomplishment.
