Angling Stuff

Angling Hero "A team I fished against locally Wiggins and Steel and they would kick your tail. They fished out of an old Venture boat, wore flannel and bluejeans. Wiggins, he only had one eye. These guys were the first ones to figure out how to catch the giant spotted bass on the Coosa River below the dams."

Favorite Lake Jordan (AL) and Okeechobee (FL)
Least Favorite Lake West Point (AL)
Favorite Technique Flipping matted grass and deep-cranking
Primary Fishing Strength "Being able to get by using any technique imaginable."
Secondary Fishing Strength "Fishing blind in new water during competition."
Biggest Weakness "Versatility I try to do too much."

Personal Stuff

Favorite Food "I will eat anything."
Favorite Music Old country and southern rock
Favorite Book/Movie Silence of the Lambs (book and movie)
Non-Angling Hero "Jill, my wife. It takes a very special person to put up with me all the time, and she does it."
When Not Fishing "I like to buy and sell stuff."
Why He Fishes "Because it's in my blood, I can't get it out of my head, and it's what I'm meant to do."
