How Eric started fishing

I have always loved fishing but mentors from the military introduced me to a bass fishing club (Fayetteville Bassmasters) which has led to more competitive fishing.


Aspirations or goals with fishing

Be all I can be myself and support my son in his bass fishing aspirations (which he has- much).


Favorite way to fish

Plastics, slow, and up close.  I'm not sure why- just love it.


Most exciting fishing experience

All of the "1st- timers"- my children catching their 1st fish, 1st Bass, etc.  Now with my son more involved, it's the 1st time topwater, 1st time on a jig, and so on.


How Eric preps for a tournament

Map study, reports/articles, equipment/bait preparation, weather study, etc.


Three favorite search baits

Spinnerbait, C-Rig, Square bill.


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

1st Place Finish and I changed weights to present something different to the fish (plastics bait).


Most challenging part of tournament fishing

Preparation (time).


When tournaments don't go my way

Learn from my mistakes, make record of what variables may have chnaged/influenced the endstate, thank God I have the opportunity to fish (freedom).


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Reputation is everything; stay true as a Sportsman (respect)


Some shared general bass fishing techniques for people just getting into the sport

Read/study much...practice, practice, practice.
