How I got started in bass fishing:
I owe this addiction to both my parents. As a small child I watched my father bring home steelhead, salmon and sacks of shad wishing one day I could be that man. When I was old enough he would take me out in an old lake boat and troll the banks so i could cast for bass. My mamma would drive me down to the river and let me loose while keeping a close eye on me from the minivan. I joined UVBM in high school and that is where my addiction blew up. I then joined the US Army and in doing so this opened the flood gates to opportunity to learn bass fishing from coast to coast. I’ve been a member of numerous bass clubs and participated in opens all across the states from the Potomac River, Grand Lake, the desert lakes in Arizona and eventually making it back home to Oregon where it all started.
