How Brian started fishing
I started fishing as a kid in farm ponds and fish at my grandmothers lake house on Lake Gantt. My uncle fished tournaments and I was always very interested in fishing one one day. When I turned 24 I purchased my first bass boat and began to fish the local bass tournaments. I fished the first year with my uncle. He showed me the ropes as of how things worked.
As my second year approached, I had a good friend Sam Cooper that took me in and thought me a lot about using different baits and other techniques during the fall. Before the next season that year started out great about 3 tournaments in my boat broke down and missed the rest of that season.
