Subject: #2150: Tim's Competition

Tim Gaskill, of Edwardsville, Ill. put his Toad Products barrel jig to the test this week and his patented design delivered in a big way with a second-place finish. Gaskill placed 21st on day one with 12-8, but made a big move on day two when he earned a final-round berth by improving to fourth with his biggest bag of the tournament – 17-7. Today, he tacked on another 15-8 and gained two more spots to finish second with 45-7. Gaskill rigged his green pumpkin barrel jig with a 12-inch Berkley Power Worm and fished it over rocks and underwater points in 25-30 feet. He also fished it around boat docks. Gaskill's jig is guaranteed to hook fish in the roof of the mouth – an important advantage that helped keep his fish buttoned up this week. "I wish I could have gotten some sunshine this week, but I got the bites I needed," Gaskill said. Gaskill caught his largest fish – 5-plus – on a black buzzbait. His co-angler partner Jeff Risbeck (second place) employed this bait with great success this week and suggested Gaskill try it on a rocky point near the check-in site late in the day. In 2011 he started as a rookie and participated in the Pro circuit. Some of his current sponsors include Power-Pole, Ranger Boats, Pure Fishing, HydroWave, Lowrance, Winchester Energy Shot, Winchester Gun Care, and his company, Toad Products. Gaskill used to be the Senior VP of Sales and Marketing with a restaurant equipment manufacturer. He used his experience to help create Toad Products. Toad Products was launched in the summer of 2011. Their products include fishing line identifies are bass jig lures.
