 PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. – It’s standard party politics – you’ll enjoy more interaction if you hang out by the food. That’s basically what Anthony Gagliardi did to take over the lead at the FLW Series Eastern Division event on Lake Champlain.

Fishing a grass flat in the lake’s north end, the Properity, S.C., angler fished tubes and other soft plastics along the bottom. Most of his action came in 10 to 13 feet of water.

“I’m not doing anything differently than a lot of (the other competitors),” Gagliardi said. “I just think I have a good area with some quality fish. They’re just moving in every so often to feed, and if you’re there when those fish start feeding, you can catch a couple of nice fish.” Full Story
A midday flurry gave Anthony Gagliardi the opportunity to cull up from a dinky limit and the ProsperityA midday rally gave Anthony Gagliardi enough weight for a fourth place showing. South Carolina pro took full advantage by sacking up 19-12 for fourth place. With maybe 11 pounds in the boat by late morning, Gagliardi made a move that paid off big for him and his co-angler partner Chris Kinney-Hermes, who leads his division.

“I finally got on one place that I had some bites on in practice,” Gagliardi said. “There was a bunch of fish there and they all turned on and started feeding and we caught them pretty good for about 45 minutes. I’m sure that some of the places I fished earlier had some fish on them and they may have turned out at some point. It’s just a timing deal – you have to be at the right place at the right time.”

Gagliardi was mostly dragging plastics along the bottom but he mixed in some cranking and jerkbaiting throughout the day. Full Story
Gagliardi won Kentucky in 2004 and needs to finish in the Top 50 tomorrow to crack the $1 million mark in career FLW Outdoors earnings. He came in with a single 2 1/2-pound fish today. "It's been a good year up until today," he said. "I'd like to crack the $1 million mark, but I don't think it's going to happen this time. We'll have to wait until Champlain." Read More

BRANSON, Mo. – On day two of the Walmart FLW Tour event on Table Rock Lake, Chevy pro Anthony Gagliardi of Prosperity, S.C., was in full-on survival mode, just hoping to scratch out enough weight to get a $10,000 check.

He had weighed in 15 pounds, 4 ounces on day one, which got buried by a rush of 18- to 20-pound limits brought in by his competitors, and he lingered in 41st place.

With just two keepers in his livewell at midday on day two, thoughts of dropping completely out of the money in the second Tour event of the year were beginning to creep up on him.

Then the sixth sense that earns top pros like Gagliardi FLW Tour Angler of the Year titles kicked in. He moved his boat off the bank, picked up a deeper-diving jerkbait and began fishing where his boat had just been sitting – and bingo – the winning move of the tournament came into focus.

Two days later Gagliardi found himself holding a $125,000 check as the winner of the Table Rock event with a two-day total of 28 pounds, 14 ounces.

“I still can’t believe it,” Gagliardi said. “Two days ago I was scratching and clawing just to get a check, and now here I sit the winner – unreal. After I moved out on Friday and began fishing over deeper water, I caught 18 pounds immediately, and it all suddenly made sense as to how the fish were positioned on the points. In essence, I had been fishing up too shallow and moving out was the key move, no doubt.” Read More

Chevy pro Anthony Gagliardi of Prosperity, S.C., moved into the third place position today with five bass weighing 14 pounds, 6 ounces.

Gagliardi is using some of his Clarks Hill and Lake Hartwell knowledge from back home to pinpoint suspended fish on a jerkbait.

“This is something I’ve just figured out over the last couple of days,” Gagliardi said. “The places where I’d been catching them shallow on a crankbait the first two days, well now it’s like they have pulled out off the bank and suspended over 50 or 60 feet of water. I’m learning how they’re positioned off the bank a little more each day. Yesterday I caught some that way and today I caught seven keepers.”

“I’m pretty excited about what I have going,” he added. “I wish I had spent more time in practice finding more of these kinds of areas, but I’m putting it together and it’s fun.” Read More
