    Gary, I will always remember the fun times freezing our butts off at night. I will always remember your stories, the skills I've learned from you, and especially this infamous picture of you with that monster. We will fish again someday, RIP.

    Re: sturgeon stomper

    I was just thinking about him awhile ago. I remember doing a mini fish fest down at Brannon Isl with he and some other sniffers. He did know his sturgeon fishing for sure.

    Re: sturgeon stomper

    Wow very sad to hear. I seen him many times at the Brannon island fest and the old Lovey's landing salmon
    Fest. Never seen him sober but he was a kick to have around. Praying for him, his wife and two daughters.

    Re: sturgeon stomper

    Gary aka Sturgeon Stomper has terminal colon cancer. He left the FishSniffer forums years ago and went with several others to that "other site" . He is in hospice and I understand the end is near. He is/was quite a character and sturgeon fishing was his specialty.
    I met him once years ago at a small fest at Clarksburg park on the delta. Didn't get to know him very well. It was evening, he was drunk (which wasn't uncommon I was told) and wanted to run into Freeport to get some bait. I knew he was too drunk to drive so I insisted on driving him to the bait shop. We talked all the way there and back but I don't really remember the conversation. I never got to know well at all. But when it came to sturgeon he was the man.
