Jeff Gustafson (aka Gussy) is a Bassmaster Elite Series tournament with a couple of unique characteristics: he fishes from a Lund aluminum bass boat and he's from Ontario, Canada. Jeff fished in the Bassmaster Classic back in March on Lake Guntersville, and recently finished 12th at the St. Lawrence River where a fellow Canadian angler became the first Canadian angler to win an Elite Series tournament. Back at the Classic, Jeff sat down with The Bass University's Pete Gluszek and Pat Renwick to talk about fishing hair jigs, more specifically marabou jigs.
