Darold Gleason – yes, it’s Darold not Harold – he’s a full-time guide who has caught (3) bass over 10-pounds from Toledo Bend in just the past six months. He’s also a very nice man who is performing very well as a competitor in the Bassmaster Central Open Series. He and his gorgeous wife Randi, a top sales director for Mary Kay Cosmetics, love, live and know well, all things Toledo Bend.

Five lures Gleason says he would have tied on if he were competing in the Elite Series tournament that began today on Toledo Bend: 1) a V & M Thunder Shad on a weighted hook for casting around shallow vegetation; 2) a 3/8-ounce swim jig; 3) a Texas rigged Delta Bug with a 3/8 ounce worm weight for casting to deeper spawning beds in 5 to 6-feet of water; 4) a weightless soft jerkbait for fan casting around spawning areas; 5) a soft stick bait rigged wacky style on a Quantum EXO spinning combo.

things he keeps in his LEER Locker – a ceiling mounted storage system that utilizes the wasted space of your truck cap to organize and secure your valuable property. 1) Lots of spare soft plastics and spinnerbaits; 2) A Carhartt rainsuit; 3) A jug of outboard oil; 4) A box of deep diving crankbaits

Two
pros that Darold Gleason is expecting to do well in this tournament: 1) Greg Hackney because he’s got a lot of experience here, and does well here; 2) David Walker because he was so close to winning here previously – “The Bend” owes him one.

One
place Darold says you must visit if you come to Toledo Bend is a top-notch resort that sits on the water’s edge called Cypress Bend Resort. Great rooms, awesome views, good restaurants, a spa, a spacious fitness room, and a gorgeous golf course. Darold asked Randi to be his wife on the picturesque 17th hole a decade ago.
