Shallow river sytems are my favorite but Im very versitle and will do whatever it takes to be competative 


Most exciting fishing experience

Every time Im on the water :-)

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

1st place "ABA Bassmasters Weekend Series" Old Hickory Lake July 2013, Caught several fish early that morning on a Mean Mouth Lures buzzbait covering water around grass beds. Afternoon bite mostly consistied of ledge fishing with a 11inch NetBait Cmac worm riggged up with 20lb Pline C21    


Most challenging part of tournament fishing

understanding and learning what the fish are doing the day of competition


When tournaments don't go my way

Understanding how to lose will make you a much better fisherman and regardless of the outcome be prepared to represent yourself as a professional for your family and sponsors   


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Work harder than anyone you are fishing against and pay attention to detail
