Gaskin fishing

Parlaying his great finishes the past few weeks in the Waterloo Rods Contender Series into a spot on the Elite Fishing League, Georgia's Tony Gaskin will occupy one of the final spots on the 2021 cast. 

 Gaskin will be competing hard and representing Bass Pro Shops, Lithium Pros, Power-Pole Total Boat Control and other top industry brands in the #03 Sportsman Boats rig powered by Yamaha Outboards.

Gaskin is a native of Hinesville and has competed on the Professional Redfish Tour for several years. Through hard work he has reached the highest level in competition and will advance to the EFL featured on the Discovery Channel. Gaskin will compete against other cast members in a elimination style reality show format until someone is crowned champion. Filming will start in early June and the one-hour episodes will air in October. 

Gaskin is nationally sponsored as well as locally.

“I am very proud to represent all my sponsors and especially those in my hometown who have helped make this dream a reality,” he said. “I can’t thank Flowers and Gaskin Attorneys, Coldwell Bankers here in Hinesville and Custom Marine in Statesboro enough for their support.” 

Gaskin faces some stiff competition and said, “This Ole Georgia boy is most likely to be casted as the underdog. We will be totally exposed every mishap every catch or penalty viewers will see it all. I’m prepared and ready for all the twist and surprises that come with this reality show.”
