Hello thanks for checking out my Bio. I have competed in different tournaments from the local and state level up to the divisional level with Anglers Choice, FLW and B.A.S.S. I began fishing for bass as a youngster, relatively speaking, as growing up in Maryland, I primarily fished for largemouth bass and rainbow trout. My father used to take me fishing as a kid for trout and I have had a love for fishing and the outdoors ever since. Competing in bass tournaments has brought me not only many close friendships, but learning from my fellow competitors and sharing information has improved my fishing exponentially. The thrill of competition and the cerebral approach to successfully locating and catching bass is an obsession that grows by the day.

On the water, I had a down year in 2015 finishing 67th in the "Angler Of The Year" point standings of the Rayovac FLW Series Northern division. I sold my boat in 2016 and did not fish. It's time to improve on that in 2017. So I'm taking my career to the next level with my professional bass fishing website. With one click, I'm communicating with the bass fishing community through bass fishing videos, new bass fishing tackle releases, new fishing gear releases and reporting my success along the tournament trail. Catch the latest fishing news in my bass fishing blog, on my bass fishing trails page and bass fishing reports pages.
