When & why did you begin bass fishing? My dad took me out fishing when I was old enough to remember and have been fishing ever since. I started competitive bass fishing about 10 years ago.
What has been your most memorable moment when it comes to fishing so far? Watching my son catch is first fish and seeing the expression on his face when he reeled it in all by himself.
Biggest catch; when, where & how: A 10.75# largemouth bass while pre-fishing for a club tournament on a local Oregon lake with my son about 4 years ago.
Do you have a good luck charm or certain thing you do when it comes to fishing? If so, what is it? I pray to God that he will look over me and reward me with a great day of fishing.
Name someone who is a hero to you & would like to meet someday? There is too many to list, but, as for fishing, Kevin Van Dam would be on top of the list.
What would it mean to you to win the 2010 TBFNC in Knoxville, TN? It would mean that for that one day I was the best fisherman in the event. I would rank it with watching the birth of my son. It is one of many goals I have in my fishing career that I would like to accomplish.
