What you should know about :
Iím extremely eccentric. I spend the most of my time with my kids fishing.
How started fishing
Raised salt water fisher, I join the military an was sent to Missouri where there isnít any salt water. I couldnít just drop fishing, it was in my blood. I pick up a Walmart rod an struggled for a couple of months not knowing what I was even trying to target. With the help of some awesome leaders over me, they took me under their wing. Teaching me everything I need to know to hook into my first largemouth. Every since then I could but it down it was addictive. The challenge of catching a bass was unreal. After a couple of years of catch a releasing , I decided why not put my skilled to the test an go up against some great anglers. Now Iím learning even more.
Aspirations or goals with fishing
I look up to A lot of angler that have made it to the bass master. Competing Against them and hopefully winning would be a career height I would like to reach.
Favorite way to fish
I was a die hard power fisherman. I believed that it was the only to fish. Now I enjoy finesse fishing. When the bite is a little harder to get. Itís the challenge I love.
Most exciting fishing experience
Grind, if I had to choose one word to describe me. Weeks an weeks I was hitting the body of water to catch this 6 pound bass that eluded me over an over. Random day I decided to head to the water after my wisdom teeth removal. Wife drove me and the kids to the water, an within 5 min of being there she took my line. When I landed this tank I was able to share that moment with my family.
How preps for a tournament
Constantly checking the weather. Looking at what bass might be feeding on at the time.
Three favorite search baits
Square bill cranks, spinner baits and jerk baits
Best tournament finish and what you did that day when you were fishing.
Most challenging part of tournament fishing
As of right now I am a co angler, saying that the hardest part of tournament fishing for me is fishing in places Iím not comfortable with. I am willing to fish it either way because the goal is to become the best an to do that you have to be well rounded.
When tournaments don't go my way
Resilience is the ability to overcome. I take that situation an learn for it. Plan accordingly so I donít make the same mistakes.

Preparation Is key!
