The longtime fishing industry professionals have decades of angling experience and will provide insight to how each angler attacks the lake.

“This will be an engaging LIVE experience for fishing fans,” said Jeffreys. “Both Swindle and Strader are highly competitive and perform under pressure. 1 ON 1 LIVE is the perfect platform to showcase their personalities and fishing skills.”

The anglers will face off on Lake Logan Martin. The central Alabama reservoir is situated on the Coosa River with 275 miles of shoreline. Known as “Lake of a Thousand Coves,” Lake Logan Martin offers both largemouth and spotted bass.

“I can’t wait to get it on,” said Swindle.  “It’s a true head-to-head format and I’m digging it.”

Strader has fished the FLW Tour since 1997 and is now a professional on the Bassmaster Elite Series. He has shown remarkable consistency over the years with 42 top-10 finishes on the FLW Tour with 17 Forest Wood Cup appearances. Strader is known for his adaptability and flipping prowess, which could prove key to a successful day on Logan Martin.

Strader is looking forward to battling it out with Swindle on Lake Logan Martin.

“Gerald and I have been friends for a long time, so when Jeffreys approached me with the idea of 1 ON LIVE, I jumped all over it,” said Strader. “I’m ready to go tug on some big spotted bass and give Gerald a run for his money.”
