AL LINDNER to be inducted into IGFA Hall of Fame, Oct. 25...

For a more recent generation, Al Lindner has been a musky, catfish, walleye and smallmouth kind of guy on TV (In-Fisherman, first and now Angling Edge). But in fact, he is a former Bassmaster Classic qualifier, former lure manufacturer (the Lindy Tail) and before KVD, he was the first from the upper Midwest to crack the Southern lock on the tournament scene.

It might surprise some that despite those awkard sunglasses removing moments on television, he truly is a bass fishing icon, recognized by Bassmaster Magazine as one of the 35 most influential figures in the sport. Likewise, he previously was inducted into the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame.

But now word arrives than Lindner, after a 50-year career, has been inducted into the global International Game Fishing Association Hall of Fame on the combined merits of his angling skills, 42-year run of outdoor television progarmming, guiding, authoring and the title he likes the best: Angling Educator.

I guess all we can say is, “Congratulations.”

Congrats, Al! You’ve earned it!

I have never heard of this guy? Will this put him in your top 40 this year?

Has he got a CA address? 🙂

Great Job!

He’ll have a Havasu address this winter…

How’s the back, Troy?

Darlene, I am recovering. Much slower than I thought it would take. Excited to back out on the water.

Don’t worry. You’re young, and in great shape, so you should be out there real soon. Take it easy until then, don’t try to push it too soon. If you want to get back on the water, step outside! LOL Hope to see you at Bass A Thon.
