Do you get nervous before tournaments: I used to, but I don’t any more. The first few years you’re fishing against your idols. Pretty soon, though, you realize they’re just you.

Your biggest bass fishing influence (person): That would be my dad, because he always had time to take me fishing. As far as an idol goes, it would be Hank Parker. He lived just up the road and he was in the spotlight, but he was always helpful.

If you were not a professional bass angler, what would you be doing: I have not a clue.

Largest bass caught to date: 13-pound, 3-ounce largemouth in Florida

Most memorable bass fishing moment: My most memorable bass fishing moment was a bad one. It was when Boyd Duckett beat me at Lake Dardanelle in the final B.A.S.S. Major. I had it won until the last 30 seconds. When I joined the Duckett Fishing team, I told him, “You should bring me on board. You owe me.”
