How Long Bass Fishing: 2 years

How Started Bass Fishing: My brother-in-law bought a small bass boat and took me out fishing on Grand Lake with him. At first, I just fished for catfish and sand bass with worms and jigs during the summer months, and then I learned how to throw a crankbait and started catching largemouths. I've been "hooked" ever since!

Favorite Fishing Technique or Style: Crankbaits are my favorites, but I'm learning (and loving) soft plastics
