The 2004 Evinrude/EverStart Batteries Co-Angler Award was awarded to the 2004 EverStart Series National Co-Angler Points Champion, the co-angler who accumulated the most points for their four regular season divisional tournaments and the national championship. Gary won the title by amassing 760 points for the four regular season tournaments and 198 points at the national championship for an incredible total of 958 points out of a possible 1,000 points. Each of the five tournaments that counted toward the year end total were worth up to 200 points.
Gary would like to thank Evinrude Outboards, EverStart Batteries, Ranger Boats, Garmin Electronics, and MinnKota Trolling Motors for putting together this fabulous prize award. It is truly an honor to receive the 2004 Evinrude/EverStart Batteries Co-Angler Award.
Gary would also like to wish all the 2005 EverStart Series Co-Anglers the best of luck in their quest for the 2005 Evinrude/EverStart Batteries Co-Angler Award.
