What you should know about Jonathan:

South Carolina Gamecocks fan, I love my family, love the outdoor, and tournament bass fishing.


How Jonathan started fishing

My uncle Toby at the age of 4 started bass fishing. Been doing tournaments since I was 18 or so and could join a club.


Aspirations or goals with fishing

Try to make it to the top after my service in the USAF


Favorite way to fish

Run and gun, (crankbait). Reason why is I don't have time to think, I hit a spot and get.


Most exciting fishing experience

Everytime I go out on the water really, Ive had so many great days and experiences.


How Jonathan preps for a tournament

Clean boat and prep tackle, pre-fish if able. And I read maps on either google or bing to better understand the lake layout.


Three favorite search baits

Crankbaits, Spinnerbait, Chatterbait


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

2017 Military Team Tournament 1st place finish. I won it with my best friend and it was great that we had fun the whole event, and caught a ton of bass. Crankbait on lake Hartwell going after the blue back bite.


Most challenging part of tournament fishing

The travel and days off work. Im in the military, and its hard to be able to just get a day off to fish. That and the fact that I live in Summerville, SC and the ABA is always in the upstate with tournaments so I have to travel to them. Once your in the tournament its all about just going fishing to me. That is what im good at, so I can control that part.


When tournaments don't go my way

Shake them off, your not always going to win. I try to remain sold and finish a tournament close to the top.


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Start fishing high school level. If your high school does have a club then make one. Try and study hard in school and go to college at a school that has a fishing club and compete. Thats one of the best ways to make it that ive seen.


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

Buy good gear, and get a bait that you like to throw and master it. Try to be the best at that one bait, then get a new bait and do the same. Over time your learn what works and what you dont like to throw.
