|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|

|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."|
