2018 Bassmaster Elite Series Sabine River Orange, Texas 14th Place | 15 fish, 28-00 The Sabine River has never really been my friend, and with changing rules about where we could and couldn’t fish, I broke my cardinal rule and pre-fished before the place went off-limits. With the changes to the playing field, there was one […]
OD on B.A.S.S. KY Lake
2018 Bassmaster Classic Kentucky Lake Paris, Tennessee 13th Place | 15 fish, 52-06 I’ve fished about a dozen tournaments at Kentucky Lake over the years, some as late as the fall, but never before June.

OD on B.A.S.S. – Lake Martin
2018 Elite Series Lake Martin Alexander City, Alabama 13th Place | 15 fish/35-07 Although BASS had visited Lake Martin on multiple occasions in the past, all of those tournaments predated my time on the tour.

2017 Elite Series Angler of the Year Championship Mille Lacs Lake Onamia, Minnesota 34th Place | 15 fish, 52-05 I entered the Angler of the Year Championship without a lot to fish for except pride.

2017 Elite Series Lake Dardanelle Russellville, Arkansas 15th Place15 fish, 41-12 The last time we visited Dardanelle I had a good tournament, ending up 25th, so I was excited to go back to try to improve upon that result.

OD on B.A.S.S. Classic 2017
2017 Bassmaster Classic Lake Conroe Houston, Texas 5th Place | 15 fish, 48-12 Prior to this Classic I’d been to Conroe multiple time for the TTBC but I wasn’t sure how much that would help me. I’d finished 4th there once when the water was 7 feet low, but this time it was at full pool. […]
OD on B.A.S.S. – Cherokee
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 – Angler of the Year Championship Mille Lacs Lake Mille Lacs, MN 14th Place /15 fish, 63-02 I’d only been to Mille Lacs once before this Angler of the Year Championship.

It’s a place where I feel very comfortable. I love river […]
