Angling Stuff

Angling Hero "My father, my uncles and my grandfather. They're legends in my part of the world. They're very special to me and have taught me a lot about fishing. And also Larry Nixon and Rick Clunn."
Home Lake Lake of the Ozarks (MO)
Favorite Lake Lake Champlain (NY/VT) - "To go and fun-fish, that's one of the best lakes in the world."
Least Favorite Lake "I dislike the lakes that get really rough, though Lake Champlain is that way. I don't like losing to a guy just because he ran another 30 miles in 10-footers."
Favorite Technique Jig-fishing around boat docks
Primary Fishing Strength Fishing slow
Secondary Fishing Strength Spinning tackle
Biggest Weakness Carolina-rigging
Boat Ranger
Motor Evinrude
Team Chevy
Fishing Sponsors Luck-E-Strike, Skirts Plus, American Rodsmiths, Crankbait Cover-Ups
Non-Fishing Sponsors Chevrolet

Personal Stuff

Favorite Food Fried chicken
Favorite Music Country (Brad Paisley, Dixie Chicks, George Strait, Tracy Byrd)
Favorite Book/Movie The Old Man and the Sea (book)/Men of Honor (movie)
Non-Angling Hero "The people I idolize are all in my sport."
When Not Fishing "I crappie-fish a lot with my boys. We fish for whatever's biting and deer hunt a lot. If it walks, flies or swims, we chase at it and shoot at it."
Why He Fishes "I've never done anything else that I'd want to do for a living. It's a part of me and I can't ever think of not doing it. It's in my blood."
