" The Pro Whistler accounting for the heaviest big eye tuna ever to be caught in the Atlantic ocean, weighing in at 434lb and recorded as the world's 2nd heaviest big eye tuna ever, by just 1lb!"
Greg Thummel started his fishing career at age five, fishing for trout in Pennsylvania and then around his uncle's docks in Stone Harbor, New Jersey. Greg's experience in game fishing started while working as a deckhand on boats out of Manasquan and Barnegat inlets that saw placings earned in numerous tournaments! Thummel then went on to run his family's boat out of Barnegat Inlet, winning two tournaments in the process. His passion for game fishing has seen him gain experience in Mexico, the Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Bermuda, and Costa Rica.
With a life-long career in sportfishing, Greg turned his hand to designing his spread of custom lures, each inspired by years of targeting top-fighting pelagics. GT lures have earned a reputation as lures that get monstered. Though, it is Greg's latest creation, the Whistler Pro Series, to receive accolades from the world's game fishing community after landing the heaviest big eye tuna ever to be caught in the Atlantic ocean, weighing in at 434lb and recorded as the world's 2nd heaviest big eye tuna ever, by just 1lb!
