Schumacher is FishQuest!'s co-founding partner and owner. He was the producer of Terra-Quest.com, which links home-based "virtual adventurers" with live expeditions around the globe via the World Wide Web. He also wrote and directed “Freedom is not Free: The Story of the Korean War”. Gary fishes with any type tackle whenever he can. His office is loaded with photos of times spent fishing with his family and others. He is a member of IGFA and The Billfish Foundation.
