Phoenix, AZ – February 20, 2015 – Rigid Industries® LED Lighting, the world’s leader in forward projecting LED lighting via its patented optic systems and torture-tested housing, announces Gerald “G-Man”Swindle, Professional B.A.S.S. Elite Angler, joins the Marine Torture Team Pro Staff.

The Alabama native is known best for his day job of 17 years: B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year, Elite Series Pro and FLW Tour Pro, but when asked why he fishes, Gerald answers, “So I have enough money to hunt. Seriously, it’s a passion.” The very skilled archery hunter was chosen as host on The Hit List which airs on the Outdoor channel where they describe the G-Man as “somewhere between Larry the Cable Guy and Chris Tucker, and he talks about as much as he laughs, which is plenty.”

Gerald’s highly admirable 12 trips to the Bassmaster Classic is a feat less than one-percent of all people who have ever paid an entry fee at any level of tournament angling can say they’ve achieved. His career includes 44 Top 10 finishes with career earnings of $1,637,325.14. Could this weekend’s Bassmaster Classic on Lake Harwell, South Carolina be the first Classic win for the G-Man?

“Gerald is a great man, husband, father, angler and hunter who used our products in many ways prior to fully coming on board. We are proud to have him and look forward to his ideas and testing abilities to always give the consumer what they need in real life applications” says VP of Sales at Rigid Industries, Dave Davis.

Gerald has the complete package which includes the Rigid Toyota Tundra LED Grille with D2 Driving lights and E-Series light bar to see while driving down dark roads. He has 10″ SR-Series diffused to light up the area around the truck and D2 diffused lights as back-up lights to see towing and launching the boat. His boat is complete with the Deck Light Kit and A-Series compartment lights to tie up and see the rods and tackle. Even the trailer has A-Series trailer lights to help guide him right onto the trailer.

Rigid Industries joins a renowned group of sponsors supporting Gerald including; Toyota, Triton, Mercury, MotorGuide, Quantum, Trokar, Oakley, Zoom Baits, Sunline, HUK, Dude Wipes, Hummingbird, KMC Wheels, Odyssey Batteries, Rod Glove, Diet Mtn. Dew, and GoPro.
