Forestville, WI – No doubt about it, the National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) 2023 Annual Conference held in Fort Myers, Florida, this January 6 – 8, was a huge success. The event’s focus centered on “Controlling Your Own Destiny” in the sportfishing industry and, as he had promised, headline speaker Gerald “G-Man Swindle” delivered in his keynote address.
“The ‘G-Man” always delivers big time, as his audience of nearly 900,000 followers on his social media channels and legions of fans across the sportfishing world will attest,” said NPAA president, Patrick Neu. “With over $2.5 million in winnings, two Bassmaster Classic Titles, 21 Bassmaster Classics, and two Century Belts to his credit, no one is more qualified to speak on Controlling Your Own Destiny in the Sportfishing World, increasing your professionalism and earning more money doing what you love to do. He’s funny, exceptionally knowledgeable, and speaks the truth. It took a long time to get the stars aligned so he could speak at our conference, but let me tell you, it was certainly worth the wait.”
Indeed, it was, as the G-Man covered in-depth every aspect of what it takes to be a successful pro in the sportfishing industry. Here then, with no further ado, is a link to Swindle’s NPAA keynote seminar. If you’ve never heard him speak, you’re in for a treat – and if you caught him at the conference or on the NPAA livestream, this is your chance to reinforce in your mind the super tips, wisdom, best practices and ideas he offered in this outstanding presentation. See G-Man at his best.
