Gary Alipio



Gary Alipio is an advertising writer, a marketer, and an amateur fisherman still searching for his white whale. He grew up just outside of New Orleans and spent many years on the bayou waters of Louisiana with his family. Over the years, his love of fishing with his Grampa turned to fishing with friends and now fishing with his daughter. You can find his creepy tales in Bayou Bogeyman Presents Hoodoo and Voodoo.

The Craziest Fishing Tale on the Bayou

Hatcher Hampton is turning twelve. Per family tradition, he'll be entering his first fishing rodeo, hoping to prove he's better than his older brother. First prize wins $500--money that could save his family from eviction. Reality soon intervenes in Hatcher's heroic fantasy as he faces a one-armed man, boat blunders, and an old swamp legend, 'Ol Gator. But getting stuck in a horsefly-infested swamp with Grampa Grump and no extra underwear isn't what he had in mind. "Here fishy, fishy, fishy!"
