Favorite way to fish
Ant way they will bite! the only thing i am not real comfrtable with is water deeper than 12' and a dropshot!
Most exciting fishing experience
i won a Skeeter/Yamaha (Now XFL in Oklahoma) on Ft Gibson lake in Oklahoma. It was a team deal and i was fishing with my son Ben! we had 18.16#s and a 6.25#er for big bass and won $21,000.

Best tournament finish and what you did that day when you were fishing.
I Won the aformentionded Skeeter Flipping a tube in Buckbrush that had water willows mixed in. I won a Weekend series on Ft. Gibson also, caught them deep cranking river channel ledges
Most challenging part of tournament fishing
I love the competion! the hardest thing is to string together good sacks on multiple day touneys. Knowing when to change up and go do something different after having success in one area or with one technique.
When tournaments don't go my way
By studying what the winners did and ananlyzing what went wrong
Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:
DON'T GIVE UP! Persistance is the key! STAY POSITIVE even when you don't feel like it!
Some shared general bass fishing techniques for people just getting into the sport
Learn how to DROP SHOT! cathes them year round in any depth. My weakness. Throw a square bill and BOUNCE it of things, bottom, wood, rocks, docks, grass.
