Awaiting the arrival of a new baby girl!
How Jonathan started fishing
I started out pond fishing on my 4-wheeler at farm ponds around the house. Then moved on to a local club tournament that really lit a fire in me.
Aspirations or goals with fishing
As much as I work and family time pushes fishing lower down the list. I hope to fish; as time allows but not ever neglect my family time. Fishing can consume me at times but my wife gives me a wide path. I hope to just enjoy these team events around N. Alabama with a trip out of state once a year.
Favorite way to fish
I love punching grass on Guntersville! Nothing else is even close.
Most exciting fishing experience
I caught a 135lb yellowfin tuna in the Gulf. My spinning rod broke about halfway through the fight. We cut the line and tied it on a stand up rig for the last 20 minutes.
How Jonathan preps for a tournament
I really like to just ride the lake a day before and look on my graphs. I hate when I stick one the day before so, I like to look more than cast.
Three favorite search baits
Rapala DT 6 or 10 and probably a creature bait
Best tournament finish and what you did that day when you were fishing.
Most challenging part of tournament fishing
When tournaments don't go my way
