Angling Stuff

Angling Hero Butch Ward (former MD BASS Federation president) - "He taught me a lot about fishing. When he passed away, it was the most devastating moment I've had to deal with. I can feel him wherever I go."
Home Lake Potomac River
Favorite Lake Lake Travis
Least Favorite Lake "I don't really have one, but for some reason I never seem to have a good tournament in Florida. The Florida strain of bass has been a challenge for me to adjust to."
Favorite Technique "I'm really versatile. I like flipping, and using a spinning rod too."
Primary Fishing Strength Moving with the fish
Secondary Fishing Strength Casting accuracy
Biggest Weakness "Slowing myself down."
Boat Ranger
Motor Evinrude
Fishing Sponsors Kinami, Big Mouth Lures, Brian's Crankbaits
Tow Vehicle (Sponsor) Chevy Suburban

Personal Stuff

Favorite Food "Any kind of meat. I'm awful when it comes to eating vegetables."
Favorite Music "I listen to just about everything, but Country puts me to sleep. That's bad when I'm driving."
Favorite Book/Movie The Old Man and the Sea (book and movie)
Non-Angling Hero "My mother. She's a strong lady."
When Not Fishing "I love to bow-hunt and I like to exercise."
Why He Fishes "I fish because it's the hardest thing I've ever done. The learning curve is so steep. It's just challenging."
