The Most Important Thing

There is a lot to reflect on this time of year, and it always helps me put things in perspective. I am thankful for the opportunities I’ve had and for those that lie ahead.  Mostly…I am appreciative of relationships. The most valuable things in life are the people we are surrounded by.

This Is Not A Dream

After dreaming of the opportunity for so long, the anticipation of actually fishing the first tournament of my professional career was so great that I drove straight through from Dayton, Ohio to Orlando, Florida in one day!

Although we were raised on opposite coasts with different influences, we are both [...]

A Hero’s Reward

Like millions of Americans, we celebrated 4th of July weekend by having a pool party and cookout with family and friends. Whether you went fishing, took the family to the beach or had your own pool party, did you ever take a moment to consider the reason for the 3 day weekend? 235 years of [...]

Bucket List

Somewhere, we all have a list of things we want to experience “someday.” What’s on your list? Does it include a fishing trip in Florida or someplace exotic like Costa Rica. Maybe you dream of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro or sitting at a high stakes poker table in Vegas. While we all have those lists of [...]

Freedom Is NOT Free

I had the priviledge of spending a day on the water with two guys who know all too well what Memorial Day is all about. Toho Bass Guide and former BASS Youth Director Stacy Twiggs has done more to get kids involved in fishing than anybody I know. He almost never talks about what happened [...]
