What you should know about Michael:

I have a wonderful family that supports me tremendously with my fishing career.


How Michael started fishing

I started out fishing local club tournaments as a non-boater and moved on to fish ABA Weekend Series events as a non-boater.


Aspirations or goals with fishing

I would love to win the Ram National Championship and to qualify for the Bassmaster Classic.


Favorite way to fish

Punching thick vegetation with a 1.5oz Eco Pro Tungsten weight, a Missile Baits D Bomb, and a 7'10" H Fitzgerald Rod for big bass! This technique has won me a lot of money.


Most exciting fishing experience

Winning the 2011 Weekend Series National Championship as a non-boater.


How Michael preps for a tournament

I research proven techniques for the body of water I'm going to for that time of year and determine how I can best attack the lake using my strengths.


Three favorite search baits

Missile baits shockwave, swim jig with Missile baits twin turbo trailer, and a chatterbait with a 3.5in Missile baits shockwave trailer.


Best tournament finish and what you did that day when you were fishing.

Winning the Weekend Series National Championship in Santee Cooper, SC with a chatterbait.


Most challenging part of tournament fishing

Adjusting to the changing conditions from practice through the tournament.


When tournaments don't go my way

You have to have a short memory when it comes to bad tournament finishes!


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Follow your dreams and start out fishing ABA events as a co-angler until you gain some experience.


Some shared general bass fishing techniques for people just getting into the sport

During the summer, some of the biggest fish in the lake get super shallow under thick grass mats. Attack these fish with a 1.5oz Eco Pro Tungsten weight, a Missile Baits D bomb, and a 7'10" H Fitzgerald rod. This is a tournament winning, big fish technique!
