Get to know The Googan Squad: Lake Fork Guy Edition!
In the fall of 2016, 5 young anglers, Lake Fork Guy, Jon B., Peric, Flair, and Lunkers, as they’re known to the fans of their YouTube fishing videos banded together, creating what is now a modern day dream-team in the fishing scene.
Historically, influential anglers focused on fishing tips or pushing products, and have taken a pretty serious approach to the sport of bass fishing. The Googan Squad has found success embracing the opposite mentality. Their videos ooze with self deprecation and hi-jinx, they’ve figured out a way to connect with their audience in a way that is natural and familiar, which is a large part of the reason they spring-boarded to the top of the fishing scene.
Watch any of their videos and you will feel like you’ve just embarked on an adventure with a lifelong fishing buddy. The Googan Squad has helped inspire new outdoor adventure seekers to get active and get outside, which is far from an easy feat. We’ll introduce you to each Googan, starting with the one and only Lake Fork Guy!
