5, 4, 3, 2, 1 from Toledo Bend
Five lures Gleason says he would have tied on if he were competing in the Elite Series tournament that began today on Toledo Bend: 1) a V & M Thunder Shad on a weighted hook for casting around shallow vegetation; 2) a 3/8-ounce swim jig; 3) a Texas rigged Delta Bug with a 3/8 ounce worm weight for casting to deeper spawning beds in 5 to 6-feet of water; 4) a weightless soft jerkbait for fan casting around spawning areas; 5) a soft stick bait rigged wacky style on a Quantum EXO spinning combo.
Four things he keeps in his LEER Locker – a ceiling mounted storage system that utilizes the wasted space of your truck cap to organize and secure your valuable property. 1) Lots of spare soft plastics and spinnerbaits; 2) A Carhartt rainsuit; 3) A jug of outboard oil; 4) A box of deep diving crankbaits
Three fiberglass replica mounts he’s received from the Toledo Bend Lunker Bass program, representing the bass he’s caught over 10-pounds in the just the past six months from this massive reservoir on the Texas-Louisiana border.
Two pros that Darold Gleason is expecting to do well in this tournament: 1) Greg Hackney because he’s got a lot of experience here, and does well here; 2) David Walker because he was so close to winning here previously – “The Bend” owes him one.
One place Darold says you must visit if you come to Toledo Bend is a top-notch resort that sits on the water’s edge called Cypress Bend Resort. Great rooms, awesome views, good restaurants, a spa, a spacious fitness room, and a gorgeous golf course. Darold asked Randi to be his wife on the picturesque 17th hole a decade ago.
