2017 Elite Series Lake Okeechobee Okeechobee, Florida 2nd Place | 20 fish, 82-01 After a solid start at Cherokee, I wanted to keep the momentum going in Florida.

2017 Elite Series Cherokee Lake Knoxville, Tennessee 10th Place | 20 fish, 62-01 I have a lot of history and a lot of positive memories on Cherokee Lake. It was the site of my first tournament when I was 9 years old. It was where I took a bass boat out for the first time by […]

2016 Elite Series Norfork/Bull Shoals Mountain Home, Arkansas 32nd Place / 15 fish, 38-07 This tournament marked the first time that B.A.S.S. held a tournament in which the entire field alternated between two lakes over the course of the tournament. We’ve fished Bull Shoals twice in Elite Series competition and one time I’d finished 36th and […]
2016 Elite Series Winyah Bay Georgetown, South Carolina 83rd Place / 5 fish, 12-02 I was excited to compete in a tournament on the Winyah Bay system, a place that few anglers on the Elite Series had ever fished before.
