Career Highlights: I am part of a professional fishing family.

Favorite Bass Waters: There are three lakes that I love to fish: Lake Seminole in Georgia, Kentucky Lake and Neely Henry in Alabama.

Big Bass: My biggest bass was caught the day before a tournament at Lake Seminole. I'm not sure how much it weighed, but I swear it was 3 feet long! Seriously, I'm guessing about it was about 9 1/2 - 10 pounds. I caught her on a Carolina rig.

Pastime or Hobbies: My favorite pastime or hobby is "junking." I love to go to flea markets, auctions and yard sales. You never know what you're going to stumble upon. Jimmy and I collect antique fishing tackle and lures, so it's a hobby that we both can enjoy.
