  • CAST Event at Lake Murray with Anthony Gagliardi

    Anthony Gagliardi, a pro bass fisherman on the FLW Tour and the 2014 Forrest Wood Cup champion, visited the Lake Murray CAST (Cast a Special Thrill) event on March 25.

    He spoke at the awards presentation about the importance of getting kids involved in fishing and assisted with awards, presenting plaques to each of the 20 participants and their boat captains.

    CAST is a national, non-profit organization with bass pro Jay Yelas as national director. It has been sponsoring fishing events across the nation for 27 years. The Lake Murray event was a joint effort between Lake Murray's Seniors Bass Club and Mt. Horeb Methodist Church's Special Needs Ministry. Twenty special needs kids and a parent were paired with members of the club, with each kid receiving a spinning rod and reel, tackle box and T-shirt for an 8:30-11:30 a.m. fishing event, followed by a barbecue lunch provided by club member Jim Edwards and his family.
