Fishing Information

My late Grandpa taught me to fish on the Mississippi River, when I was just a little guy, and I've been hooked ever since. That man was a Saint and he always had time to take me fishing. I often fall back on the knowledge he passed on to me, both on the water and life in general. I was fortunate (or lucky) enough to win the first Bass Tournament I entered, (U.S. Bass) in 1983 and that pretty much got the ball rolling. I was thinking "there's nothing to this bass tournament stuff." Boy, was I in for a rude awakening. I have since "got a clue." Now I fish tournaments 12 months a year and have managed to stay "in the black." I think my favorite tournament win was the first tournament that I fished with my son. He was 5 years old at the time and was already a pretty good little fisherman. We were Carolina Rigging, at the Lake of the Ozarks, and it didn't take him long to figure out that the Zebco 33 combo I had set up for him wasn't going to do the job for him. He set it down (and later kicked it in the lake) and picked up a baitcast combo I had rigged up and after a few quick instructions, started casting. I thought he would have it so back-lashed I would need scissors to clean out the "bird's nest." He had a few minor problems but did amazingly well and even caught a keeper that culled. That fish was his first keeper and it put us over the top, as we only won by ounces. Since then he has become quite a fisherman and has "kicked dads butt" on numerous occasions. He has all the physical skills it takes to reach the top and when he acquires the experience and knowledge he has the potential to be one of the sport's truly great fishermen. Watch for him because he will go as far as he wants to.

I have been a Sheet Metal Worker for Local #36, in St. Louis, Missouri for 20 years. I am a single father of 2 teenagers (Phillip & Maggie) and they truly are my best friends. Once the kids are out of school I plan to move to the Lake of the Ozarks, which in my opinion is the best lake in America, and fish full time. Phillip plans to live with me forever (we'll have to see about that one) and become a guide on the Lake of the Ozarks. Maggie is planning on going to Mizzou and becoming a veterinarian. She is my "Little Princess" and pretty much runs the show around here.
