Garett Svir

Garett Svir is a freelance outdoor writer and the owner of Slab Seeker Fishing Guide Service: His specialty is trophy caliber bluegills. Garett was recently featured in the In-Fisherman Panfish Guide where Central Minnesota was rated one of the top destinations in the county for pie plate sized gills. Panfish conservation and selective harvest is very important to Garett and he has spent countless hours teaching anglers the importance of protecting large bluegill genetics for the future of our Minnesota fisheries. Look for his writing in The Angling Buzz, Midwest Outdoors, Outdoors Weekly and Great Lakes Angler. He is also a frequent contributor on The Outdoor Report Television Show and Larry Smith Outdoors Television. His favorite jig is the Northland Gill Getter and he attributes the darting and kicking action of this presentation to landing literally hundreds of bluegills over 1lb each year.
