Father - "He's always supported my dream, and he's very optimistic about achieving your dreams."
When Not Fishing
"I like to archery-hunt for deer, but I enjoy any type of hunting. I also like to be an assistant coach for my boy's teams, and fish with my wife."
Why He Fishes
"It's always been a lifelong love. I was introduced to it at a young age. I also think it's the competitive nature of it. I wasn't big enough for the other sports, but this is soemthing I felt like I could compete at and be one of the best at."
Jimmy Houston - "I like his moral beliefs and his spinnerbait techniques. I've always been a diehard spinnerbait fisherman."
Lake Champlain (NY/VT) - "It's such an incredible smallmouth and largemouth fishery. There's not many places you can go to that are like that."
Least Favorite Lake
Florida lakes - "I feel like I'm fishing in a big farm pond there. It seems like there's no defined patterns or transitions. You're just pretty much fishing a big, grass-infested farm pond."
