Angler Q & A
Technique strength: It was flipping and pitching, but I would like to say that versatility is my main strength now.
Technique weakness: I don't think I have a true weakness any more. When you pay an entry fee to be in major tournaments, you have to get good in a hurry. I think I got rid of the weak areas.
Favorite lake or river: Falcon or Okeechobee
Least favorite lake or river: Smith Lake in Alabama or the Ohio River
Favorite bait: YUM Big Show Craw, mainly because I designed it.
Started bass fishing at the age of: I started fishing when I was old enough to walk, my father would babysit me and we'd go fishing. I started going by myself at age 12.
Started fishing bass tournaments at the age of: 14
Year turned pro: 2001
Do you get nervous before tournaments: No. I still have the drive for competition. But as far as being nervous, I just don't get that any more.
Your biggest bass fishing influence(s): Maybe Denny Brauer. I'd also probably mention Kevin VanDam and Rick Clunn.
Largest bass caught to date: 14 pounds at Lake Amistad
Most memorable bass fishing moment: The last day of the B.A.S.S. Elite Series event at Falcon in 2008. I lost a 10-pounder near the end of the day, but I had 44 pounds, 4 ounces on the day. I had 132 pounds, 4 ounces for the tournament.
Statement about Major League Fishing: I talked to some of the other anglers before the Chautauqua. Everybody said the format is intense and a mental drain. I didn’t see it that way. That’s the way I fish most days. To me, it was a lot of fun. I liked being able to see what everyone else was doing. It was just a lot of fun. They had already had one event under their belt, so I kind of knew what was going on.
