Pro Bass Fisherman Gerald Swindle Had Never Been On Snow. So He Went Snowboarding.

Wednesday January 8th, 2014

Gerald "G-Man" Swindle is one of the best bass anglers in the world. As demonstrated in the video above, he is not one of the best snowboarders in the world. Or on that particular bunny hill. Last December reps of the Toyota Tundra Fishing Team, which sponsors Swindle, got a wild hair and decided to bring their loquacious angler to Breckenridge, Colorado for a snowboarding lesson. Swindle is from Alabama, you see, and therefore had never been on snow prior to filming. That distinction was quickly invalidated during the shoot, no doubt leaving Swindle with a deeper appreciation for living in a locale unafflicted by the polar vortex.
