How Paul started fishing
Aspirations or goals with fishing
Favorite way to fish
I enjoy shakeyheads fishing. The set up is very light and I can feel every inch of the bottom. But I can't rule out pitching into heavy cover either.
Most exciting fishing experience
How Paul preps for a tournament
Three favorite search baits
Mizuo top water baits, spinnerbaits, square bill crankbaits.
Best tournament finish and what you did that day when you were fishing.
I've never placed in an ABA tournament, but I did win first place in another club tourney. It was a on a generator powered lake...They just couldn't resist the popper.
Most challenging part of tournament fishing
When tournaments don't go my way

Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:
Never Give Up. I know you hear it all the time, but one day your big bass will come knocking. It's been over 20 yrs since I had a huge bass.
