Why he tournament fishes?
“ To me its about competition against the fish not the other competitors.  I love the challenge of figuring out the fish.  A lot of guys get caught up in trying to beat other fisherman and not share info or even help other anglers out.  I have learned that in the end YOU are the one who has to put them in the boat when the day is done.  It’s all about what you do as an angler. “

Favorite Techniques:
“I love to sightfish for both Largemouth and Smallmouth on any lake!!!  I also love to fish offshore structure with a C-Rig or Jig.  But in the end I just love to catch them anyway I can make them bite from a Jig to a Dropshot!!”
