I was fortunate growing up to be taught to fish at a young age. It was what we did. We rode our bikes to the small ponds near the house to fish after school. Family vacations involved fishing for species we couldn't catch at home. Fishing was a big part of my life then, and it is still today. Of all the different fish we caught growing up, bass were always my favorite.
Living in Georgia gives me the opportunity to not only chase quality bass, but also multiple species. From monster largemouth to chunky spots to hard-fighting shoalies, Georgia is kayak bass angler's dream. Most of the year, you’ll find me chasing bass down the rivers here. From the Chattahoochee to the Etowah, the Flint to the Ocmulgee, we’ve got some world-class fisheries. I’m also a competitive tournament angler, fishing 10-12 events each year across several tours. In addition, I’m the co-founder of Peach State Kayak Anglers, along with Jackson Kayak teammate Jim Ware.
