What an awesome experience! Driving out to California from Texas is not as far as many Elite anglers had to endure so I was able to capitalize and spend some time sightseeing on the way. My wife and I visited Yosemite National Park .... WOW! What an amazing place. While in the park we made sure to visit the giant sequoia trees and hike around the Mariposa Grove area. I was in 'awe' over the nature and scenery on the west coast. It's something I hope everyone can experience. As far as the fishing ... the west has some awesome bass to catch. I was looking forward to getting after it and moving up...... Read More

In the couple of weeks between the Sabine River event and Guntersville I managed to get out to pre-practice for the California Delta. I am really looking forward to that event and Lake Havasu. I feel like all of us Tour anglers have a lot to gain by fishing in the western United States. When I have events out west if feels like I compete on a true national tour and it keeps us from constantly fishing the eastern half of the U.S. Before the western swing kicks off though I wanted to share with you how Guntersville went. Guntersville is a fantastic fishery but I must say I am concerned. Although ...... Read More

My off season as a professional angler is anything but ‘off’! What a busy time of cultivating relationships for the future and, most importantly, putting current relationships to work. This past offseason I had a change in my title sponsor… that is stressful. Now I am in the new place and one that feels great! I couldn’t be more proud working with Dixie Electric for the 2015 season and hopefully for years to come. Other changes in the offseason was a shift to working exclusively with BoatUS… gosh, honestly I love this organization. BoatUS is loyal to boaters all...... Read More
