What you should know about Donald:

How Donald started fishing

1 YEAR OLD WITH MY FATHER ( BELIEVE IT OR NOT I REMEMBER IT)


Aspirations or goals with fishing

TO GET A LIMIT EVERY TOURNAMENT AND THEN TO WIN ONE. TO GET MY NON BOATER INTO FISH IN EVERY TOURNAMENT


Favorite way to fish

SURFACE


Most exciting fishing experience

IT WAS 1969(15YRS OLD) AND I WAS STAYING AT A CAMP SITE WITH MY COUSIN ON CASAYUNA LAKE. PAT - A FRIEND SHOWED UP (OLDER MENTOR) WITH HIS BUDDY HOWIE. WE WENT OUT IN THE ROW BOAT INTO THE LILLY PADS. PAT SHOWED US HOW TO FISH WITH FROGS. FUNNIEST THING WAS-  EVERY TIME WE HOOKED ONE - HOWIE WOULD PUT HIS HUNTING KNIFE IN HIS MOUTH AND DIVE INTO THE PADS - NOT JUMP - DIVE!!! HE WOULD SURFACE WITH OUR FISH IN HIS ARMS. IT WAS 90 + DEGREES THAT DAY AND WE CAUGHT SO MANY BASS THAT HOWIE NEVER DRIED OFF!


How Donald preps for a tournament

Three favorite search baits

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

Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

DON'T GIVE UP!!!!  I FIRST HEARD OF BASS TOURNAMENTS IN THE LATE 60'S AND DREAMPT OF OWNING MY OWN BOAT AND COMPETING.  LIFE SOMETIMES GETS IN THE WAY. FAST FORWARD TO NOW - 50 YEARS LATER (64YRS OLD) AND I FINALLY BOUGHT MY FIRST NEW BOAT AND AM GOING TO COMPETE AS A BOATER.


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

TRY SURFACE FISHING - POPPER, WALKING BAIT, BUZZBAIT, FROG, ETC .  THERE IS NOTHING MORE EXCITING THAN WATCHING A MONSTER BASS EXPLODE ON YOUR LURE.
