If you could only fish with one lure what would it be:    The obvious answer is a JIG! But if I was kinda crazy and I am I’d say a FROG
Favorite band:    I listen to all music. Some of my favs are Coldplay, Motion City Soundtrack, Jack Johnson,Fallout Boy, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, and a lot more
Boat/Motor:    Still trying to afford one…just finished college so it may take a while!
Tow Vehicle:    2004 Toyota 4Runner
If you were not fishing what would you be doing:    Either playing volleyball or relaxing with my friends enjoying life.
Hero    My dad. He’s living the dream! Came to America when he was 15, jumped right into high school, learned english and graduated at the top of his class. Got a masters degree in college and now works for the Department of Commerce. He is my number 1 sponsor for sure.
