Forrest L. Wood Passes Away

If you own a Ranger boat or are familiar with Bass fishing tournaments, you probably know who Forrest L. Wood is. He passed away today, 1/25/20 at age 87. He did a huge amount for the sport of fishing, and was the father of the modern bass boat. He was about as down to earth as any guy could be. RIP Mr. Wood.

I will never forget seeing him chainsaw a boat in half . . .in the water! That got my attention!

Met him and his brother when I toured Bass Pro a few years ago. Talked with him for quite a while.
