Mechanic for the Board of Public Utilities in Paris,Tn
I am a Air Force veteran. I have a wonderful wife, Christa, three children and three grandchildren and another on the way. Bass fishing is my favorite hobby, but I also enjoy hunting and crappie fishing. Above all Christ is my savior and without Him nothing would be possible.
I started fishing tournaments at age 12. I won a local junior fishing rodeo and was hooked. My dad was a big influence. He fished tournaments for many years. He, along with some good friends encouraged me to join a local bass club. I learned a wealth of knowledge.
To win but also to learn everything I can about the sport.
Flipping jigs is my favorite way to fish but I also enjoy ledge fishing.
Most all of them excited me in one way or another. Beats work!
I study the weather and lake conditions and spend as much time as I can searching on the water.
Spinnerbaits, lipless crankbait, and Carolina rigs
I've had a few 1st place finishes. I really can't pick one from the other. Most of them I probably had some sort of jig in my hand.
Adapting to changing conditions.
I take time to look back at what I should have done differently then I start to put a game plan together for the next tournament.
Spend as much time as possible on the water and take in as much information as you can. Fish your strengths and don't be hard headed, try different things!
Keep focused on what your doing and have fun! You can't win them all and the more you fish the better you'll get.
