Favorite way to fish
SWimbait! Using a swim bait because I feel like it is effective in almost every situation. Also I enjoy the having to figure out what color to use based off of the bait fish they are feeding on.

A lot of what I do is study maps of the lakes and weather paterns leading up to the tournament date. Of course time of year has a lot to do with how I plan as well.

Best tournament finish and what you did that day when you were fishing.
My best Finish has been 4th place as of today 5/7/18 I caught a 6.7lber with a swimbait in a canal off the edge of some cover. Casting into the wind and reeling back with the current, Hoping over some grass and other cover.
