Angling Stuff

Angling Hero Homer Circle - "Some of the first articles I ever remember reading about bass fishing, he wrote. And still today, he's a hell of an individual."
Home Lake Toledo Bend (TX,LA). "It's so big, a variety of patterns work throughout the year, and it's taught me a lot about fishing. Just as good in winter as it is in summer."
Favorite Lake Toledo Bend (TX,LA) - "It's more consistent, day in and day out and season in and season out, as far as taking a heavy weight to win a tournament, than any lake I've ever fished."
Least Favorite Lake Florida - "The fish are so finicky. I've been fishing it since 1977, and we've only had one heavy-weight tournament there."
Favorite Technique "I love to fish a plastic worm and jig deep (15- plus feet)."
Primary Fishing Strength Soft-plastics shallow and deep
Secondary Fishing Strength Pitching and casting a jig
Biggest Weakness Chunking and winding down a bank
Boat Skeeter
Motor Yamaha
Fishing Sponsors Shimano, PinPoint, Triple Fish line, C&C Hydraulic Jackplates, Reaction Lures, Davis Jigs, X-Wire spinnerbaits, Rod Wrap
Tow Vehicle (Sponsor) Chevy Suburban

Personal Stuff

Favorite Food Steak - "As long as it's thick and medium-rare."
Favorite Music 1960s rock and soft rock
Favorite Book/Movie Lonesome Dove (book)/Bullet (movie)
Non-Angling Hero Grandmother - "She carried me fishing all the time, and I probably owe the love of fishing and the outdoors to her."
When Not Fishing "I love to hunt, I'm into motorsports -- I like streetrods -- and I really like to go and fish somewhere and try to find a school of fish that no one's ever fished before."
Why He Fishes "I guess because I'm better at it than anything else. It's been a progression, from when I was a little bitty fella fishing with my grandmother to eventually getting into bass fishing."
