So a little about me as a fisherman and outdoorsman. I started bass fishing as soon as I was old enough to hold a rod, and was in the winning boat of a tournament on Boone Lake in East Tennessee at the age of 7, and yes I caught 2 of our fish! I was lucky enough to have a Dad that tournament fished, along with several other members of the family. My dad dropped most of his normal tournament partners by the time I was 10 years old to get me out and on the water more. I joined my first federation sanctioned bass club at the age of 14, and before I could drive, was the youngest angler that large club ever qualified to send to the Tennessee State Tournament at the age of 15. As of now I am 31 years old, and to the best of my record (I’m sure a lot is missing) I have won over 200 Bass Tournaments of all sizes, and 6 points titles in various team trails and solo events. I also enjoy archery hunting whitetails in the mid-west, and waterfowling here on the Tennessee River.
I started my BassWhacker Guide Service in the Spring of 2011, in an effort to teach skills I have learned, familiarize strangers to the lake, and to keep myself busy and sharp between tournaments. I have also worked in the saltwater charter business in Homer, Alaska during past summers.
Some of my strongest skills are in electronics and shallow water target fishing. If you are looking to learn to better use your Humminbird or Lowrance units, I am very trained and ready to help. I am well schooled with all of the new side and down scans and am very capable of helping you learn more about that high dollar graph that so far you have only used to tell you how deep it is. Also if you want to improve your pitching, flipping or short target casting, I am ready to just teach all day and make you a better fisherman.
The main thing I want all of my prospective clients to know is, I want you to have the day you want to have. If that is hard core tournament run and gun fishing for 12 straight hours, I am more than ready for that. If you want to take your kid out and bream fish for 2 hours then ride to Mud Creek and eat BBQ, then I am ready for that as well. What I am trying to say is it is your day you are paying for, You let me know what you want to get out of it, and I will try my very best to make that happen!
