What you should know about Ted Sullivan:
I'm a veteran of ths United States Navy. I have been associated with A Fishing youth group "Teen Sportsfishing" for over 15 years. Born and raised in Florida. I have been a bass fisherman since I was a kid. I have fished bass tournaments for at least 20 years. I have won some and I have lost a bunch. I'm a lifetime member of the ABA and have fished the open series since the 2nd year fo its inception.
To me fishing Tournaments is more about friendships and camaraderie and competition. Tournament winnings are nice but not as important. I have won in the open division and the placks are on the wall in the man cave along with other fishing awards from the past. Hopefully I can add to the collection.
My biggest bass was a 17.60 pounder. I caught her out of Lake Wolford in souther California. Lake Dixon where Dottie the 25 pounder was caught is close by and where I taught my son how th fish.
I'm the Ultimate fishing package winner for 2016 through the ABA. This year I get to support the ABA and all their sponsers as well as them supporting me. It is my pleasure to be apart of this great organization and fly the colors for them and our sponsors.
