|Angling Hero||Hank Parker - "I'm from the same area as he is, and when you have someone here that close, (a bass fishing career) seems more realistic. He's someone I've always looked up to."|
|Favorite Lake||Lake Okeechobee (FL) - "You can catch a lot of fish, you can catch big fish and you can catch them different ways there. It's a good vegetation lake. And you're usually always around fish there."|
|Least Favorite Lake||Santee Cooper (SC) - "If you don't hit the pre-spawn and the spawn right, you just don't get a bite there anymore. Since the vegetation is gone, everything looks the same."|

|Primary Fishing Strength||Offshore structure|
|Secondary Fishing Strength||Covering lots of water with a spinnerbait|
|Biggest Weakness||Finesse fishing|

|Favorite Book/Movie||Jaws (movie)|
|Non-Angling Hero||Father - "He always took time out to take me fishing, and that's pretty much what put me in the position I'm in today."|
|When Not Fishing||"I like to hang around with the family -- mess around with the kids, though that turns into fishing because they want to go. I also like to do some saltwater fishing."|
|Why He Fishes||"It's how I make my living. It was a hobby, and now it's career. And I like the competitivenes of it."|
