My Fishing Photos

This is Blake and I and our limit of Bass in the Skeeter Event on lake Hudson. We weighed 15.04 pounds of bass!! Good enough for 11th place and a fat check! All were caught on Red River Spinnerbaits in shallow water.

This is a picture of me, my dad, and my son and of course our dog Storm. This was our first annual Father's Day Fishing trip. We sacked em up using crickets behind boat docks on Hudson. We try to go fishing together every year for father's day.

This was big bass at the Tulsa Metro Keystone event. She weighed 5.71 pounds and I caught her in a flooded bush on a Red-River Spinnerbait.

This is Storm in action winning the 2003 Oklahoma State flying dog competition. He holds the ESPN Big air competition World Record for Chesapeake Bay Retriever's with a jump of 21 feet!!!

Fishing Information

I'm a married 27 year old father of six, four of which are Chesapeake Bay Retrievers.

I have had a fishing rod in my hand since before I can remember.

I have been fishing the tough trails of Oklahoma for a while now, managing to always finish in the top 10 and qualify for the State tournament.

I have fished BFL, Skeeter, Tulsa Metro, Champion, Cobra North, Triton, Mid America, Whiehorn Circuit, and Tulsa Hookers.

I am a dedicated student of the sport and understand that fishing is a lifelong process of evolution.

I pride myself on being able to find bass even on unfamiliar water.

I am a huge believer in pre-fishing and when not in tournaments, I am practicing for them.

In the off season I duck hunt and train my dogs.

My male Storm is the World Record Holder for Chesapeake s in the ESPN Big Air Competition.

My true passion in life is bobber fishing with crickets for big bream, as long as my kids are with me.

Sponsors: Red River Tackle, Okiebug, Nabatak, Diamond Pet Foods, BP buzzbaits.

However, I am always open-minded when it comes to any company that would allow me to show the world how well their products catch bass.

Right now I use:

Hydra Sport Boats, Mercury Motors, Falcon Rods, Shimano Reels, Trilene and Power Pro Line, Mustad Hooks, Bomber Crank baits, Red-River and Terminator Spinner baits, Gene Larew, Zoom, and Yum Soft Plastics.
