In addition to fishing, I like to hunt, saltwater fish, and travel. 


How Michael started fishing

Started fishing in Ohio on Lake Erie at the age of 10. And started fishing Bass Tournaments as a CO Angler in the B.A.S.S. top 150's in the 90's. 


Aspirations or goals with fishing

Well I'm a student of the sport, so I would like to learn as much as possible. Hopefully gain employment in the fishing industry. 


Favorite way to fish

Sight fishing and I'm a power fisherman, I like to cover as much water as possible. It suits my style of fishing. 


Most exciting fishing experience

Winning several Ram Series events. Especially winning twice in a year, 2017.


How Michael preps for a tournament

I pretty much do online research on the type of water, what are the results of recent events on that type of water, talk to other fisherman, pratice myself and after all the info I take about a week getting my tackle ready. 


Three favorite search baits

Swimbait, Crankbait and Topwater. Any power bait. 


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

Best tournament finish was on Okeechobee when I won with 18.23 pounds with a 3 fish limit. I caught 3, 6 pounders on the Whoppler Ploppler.


Most challenging part of tournament fishing

When to make the right decisions to make a lure change or pattern chage.


When tournaments don't go my way

Just fish your strenghts and what works best for you.


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Learn as much as you can and never give up.
