History in Photos: Jerry McKinnis

The below picture is a teaser from the 1974 book named, simply enough, “Jerry McKinnis’ Bass Fishing.” This picture featured Jerry, now head of B.A.S.S., and Cecil Pedigo, probably most famous for the Pedigo Spinrite, but really made his money with pork rind. Look for the coming review of this book on the site in two weeks.
