Timothy Ray Tucker, 1957-2007

Sad news from Florida. Nationally syndicated columnist and senior writer for B.A.S.S. Timothy Ray Tucker died Monday in a tragic car accident on I-75 near Gainesville.

Tucker was a columnist for The Gainesville Sun but probably best known for his eight books and many articles on bass fishing. Among other books, Tucker authored Secrets of America's Best Bass Pros in 1990 and a follow-up book More Secrets of America's Best Bass Pros in 1992.

Tucker also co-authored a number of works, including Bill Dance on Largemouth Bass with legendary angler Bill Dance (1996); Diary of a Bass Pro with Joe Thomas (1996); and Bill Dance on Crappie with Bill Dance (1996).

Tucker had spent much of the past years developing his web site, Tim Tucker Outdoors, and his own publishing venture.

It is a tragic loss for the outdoor writing community.
