What you should know about Gregg:

My motto is "Make a difference". Help others when you can and leave people feeling better about themselves before they met you.


How Gregg started fishing

My grandfather took me fishing before i was 3. The fondest memories I have are of times spent with him on the bank of a small pond.

The first sanctioned tournament I fished was with the Military Bass Anglers Association while I was based at Offutt AFB, Nebraska. Of special note - ABA Hall of Fame member Gary Connor led our division.


Aspirations or goals with fishing

Favorite way to fish

Crankbaiting rock walls is always my favorite way to fish. Nothing beats the way a big bass loads up a crankbait rod.


Most exciting fishing experience

How Gregg preps for a tournament

Three favorite search baits

Best tournament finish and what you did that day when you were fishing.

Most challenging part of tournament fishing

I have the most challenge during tournaments when I have a non-boater. Not because I would rather not have them in the boat but because we usually have too good of a time talking. I forget it is a competion and many times make decisions to help the non-boater finish a limit or get bigger fish. Would not change this though because it is what keeps us both coming back and leads to lasting friendships.

 


When tournaments don't go my way

If you go to a weighin most people will not tell how they fished or what they fished with. When I win a tournament, I tell exactly what I did and how I did it. This also goes with when I have had a bad tournament. This keeps me level and honest with myself and the other anglers. I can walk away from the tournament knowing the next one will be better and usually I have support from the other anglers when I arrive at the next tournament. Of note regarding giving of information - do you really think the exact same conditions you won today will be present next year for the use of the same winning technique - highy doubtful.


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Decide early as to why you want to fish tournaments. Is it for the competition? Is it to learn new techniques? Is it for the money? Or is it to enjoy the outdoors and friendships? Be honest to yourself and to others as to your motivation. People will respect you more as an angler if you tell them your motivation upfront.
