What you should know about Nicholas:

How Nicholas started fishing

I started fishing with my dad at 3 years old and I've been hooked ever since.  He started letting me fish a few local tournaments with him here and there when I was 7 or 8.  I didn't start getting heavily into tournament fishing unitl 2004 or 2005.  Now I am enjoying the competition and comradery with AFT Tournaments.  I still fish club tournaments all through the year.


Aspirations or goals with fishing

My dream job would be making a supportive living bass fishing.  I am far from that now, but everyone has to a have a goal to work toward.


Favorite way to fish

My favorite way to fish is power fishing.  Love covering water and dissect an area that I am fishing whether it be top water, spinner baits, crank baits, jigs, etc.  


Most exciting fishing experience

My most exciting fishing experience was Mother's Weekend 2013.  We were camping at Lake Guntersville and I fished for four straight days.  This was the first time I had fished on Guntersville in 20 years.  The last day we there, I stumbled across a school of bass in 8 ft water.  I caught 28 bass on consecutive casts with the fish weights ranging between and 3 and 5 lbs.  I had my wife take pictures of the biggest ones just in case no one believed me.  Man what a day.


How Nicholas preps for a tournament

I always prep my tackle the day before.  I base my lure selection on history and seasonality.  There is really nothing special to the way I prep.  I just try to fish the conditions and find the pattern as quickly as possible.


Three favorite search baits

Spinner Bait

Crank Bait

Buzz Bait


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

The first ABA tournament I won was a special day.  Our area received a slew of rain prior to the tournament and it was raining on tournament day.  I was fishing points and banks with isolated cover looking for baitfish and aggressive bass with crank baits, spinner baits and buzz baits.  I found one speical point with bait on it and caught every bass I weighed in.  


Most challenging part of tournament fishing

Making the right decisions at the right time.  Do I stay or do I go?  Do I change lures or stick to my confidence baits?  Processing all of the variables.


When tournaments don't go my way

I am my own worst critic, but I try to stay calm and keep a positive attitude.  


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Go with your first/ gut instinct with out second guessing yourself.  

Learn from your mistakes.
