RIP Hugh Crumpler III

Recommended Posts

The fishing community lost a legend yesterday. Hugh was Vietnam vet, professional fisherman, high school football coach & fishing guide never to be forgotten by the people that met him & knew him. Hugh was well known for his guiding success on Stick Marsh/Farm 13 in Florida.

Sounds like he was a true American hero and served his country well.


He also devoted his time and energy as a guide, helping many have a fun day on the water.

 

Every day we lose our Viet Nam and Korea vets.

 

Real winners in life.

 

Dangerous world out there. Lots of crazy people running around. Your friend did a good job in corralling them up to help make the world a better place.

I've never had the pleasure of meeting Hugh Crumpler, but read about his legendary career.

Hugh is credited with being the first man to guide on the Stick Marsh, who began guiding there in 1991.

On July 29th 1992, Hugh himself boated a 32-inch bass on a zoom fluke at 12:30 noon on a bright sunny day.

Hugh Crumpler's bass is the unofficial lake record for the Stick Marsh/Farm-13.
