Angling Stuff

Angling Hero "My dad taught me how to fish. But I grew up as a Texas-rigged worm fisherman, so from the very beginning Larry Nixon was one of my heroes, and he still is."
Home Lake Lake Texoma (TX/OK)
Favorite Lake Lake Texoma (TX/OK) - "I spent 14 summers in a row down there growing up and I have a lot of fond memories of it. And there's always something biting there."
Least Favorite Lake "I don't know that I have one. I've had some lakes I haven't done well at, but that just makes me want to go back that much more
to figure them out."
Favorite Technique Pitching or short-range casting a jig
Primary Fishing Strength Pitching and fishing a jig
Secondary Fishing Strength Light-line fishing
Biggest Weakness Deep-cranking
Boat Triton
Motor Mercury
Team Triton–Mercury
Fishing Sponsors Zoom, Team Supreme (spinnerbaits and jigs), Duckett Fishing, Lowrance

Personal Stuff

Favorite Food "The kind that doesn't crawl away."
Favorite Music Classic rock
Favorite Book/Movie Red Storm Rising (book)/Caddy Shack or There's Something About Mary (movies)
When Not Fishing "I'm a dyed in the wool outdoorsman. So when I'm not tournament fishing, I really enjoy fly fishing and tying my flies. I also like to walk through the mountains just enjoying Mother Nature."
Why He Fishes "It was a passion of mine growing up. And as I've progressed through the sport, it's become a challenge to see how good I could get at it. It's more a battle with myself than with the other anglers or the fish."
