How Billy started fishing
My father and grandmother started me fishing as did many other
guys parents did. I started tournament fishing last year as a co
angler and now Iím competing in my 2nd season as a Co
angler and I love it. Someday I hope to make the move
to a boater. Iíve been fishing in the FLW/BFL tourney formats
and just recently found out about the Ram open series from a friend
who fishes these regularly . This whole experience as a co
angler has been very rewarding and very educational for me. Iíve learned
many things from my boaters and other anglers. I wouldnt change
Aspirations or goals with fishing
To continue learning and see how far I can I go.
Fish the classic
Favorite way to fish
I love cranking cause I can make the bait dance and it causes major strikes.
Most exciting fishing experience
Making it to Regionals in my 1st BFL season and fishing on
the Red River.
How Billy preps for a tournament
Night before I re spool all reels and get at least 3 rods rigged
up and ready to go.
Three favorite search baits
Crank bait, Rattle trap, Keitech swim
Best tournament finish and what you did that day when you were fishing.
I finished in 5th place on day one of a super tourney and
dropped to 17th after day 2 and on both of those days I
was cranking and throwing wacky worms all day long in the BFL
tourney and that got me to regionals.
Most challenging part of tournament fishing
Fishing used water, itís hard
When tournaments don't go my way
This is all about having fun and making new friends .
Its called fishing not catching. So it does no one any good
to stress out cause you havenít caught a fish. Just be patient
and stay calm and things will happen for you .
Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:
Stay calm and try not to stress out. And ask your Pro questions
and just watch him also. You just might learn something.
