Why He Fishes "I was introduced to tournament bass fishing in the sixth grade and have been hooked ever since! Having my dad as my tournament partner, as well as the competitive nature that comes with fishing tournaments equaled the perfect formula that helped form a bond to fishing and the desire to fish competitively at a professional level."
