What you should know about Scott:

I always try to keep a positive outlook about everything. I love, and am proud of my wife and kids. I know it is cliche', but fishing is my therapy. And I'm the luckiest man on earth.


How Scott started fishing

Like most anglers, I've had a passion for fishing as long as I can remember. When we were younger, I always figured family vacations meant I was going fishing. Didn't matter if we went to Florida,North Carolina or Canada. There would be some water along the way somewhere. I didn't discover competetive bass fishing until the late Eighties. I started watching "The BassMasters" on TNN & I knew I wanted to fish competetively. In 1993 I bought my first boat and realized real quick I had a lot to learn. Fortunately, I met Miles Hair in 1994, and he turned out to be the teacher I needed. We fished our first tournament together on the old MBAA team trail. We won the second tournament we fished together at Kerr resevoir. I've been hooked ever since.


Aspirations or goals with fishing

My goal in fishing is to become a consistantly competetive tournament angler.


Favorite way to fish

I love to flip boat docks. Not just because they're a great place to find fish, but also because there is a tecnique involed that takes practice to achieve.


Most exciting fishing experience

I've had it happen twice. You know your in the right spot,throwing the right lure, when a 9 plus pounder jumps out of the water and grabs you lure in mid air, before it ever touches the water.


How Scott preps for a tournament

I look back through my old notes for that body of water and that season. I then decide what I will start with that day and rig up around 10 or 12 rods. I'll then go through all the excess tackle on the boat and try to carry only what I think I'll use that day. Yeah Right... I then go over my boat and trailer front to back and make sure everything is working properly. Last thing is I go over in my head, at least two or three spots I want to try early. If I'm lucky, I won't need to look for anymore.


Three favorite search baits

A topwater spook type bait, a 3/8 oz. rattle bait, and a carolina rig.


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

I won my first ABA on the Roanoke River back around 2000 or 2001. I started the day off quick with a floating worm, but the wind picked up so strong by mid morning that I couldn't fish it. So I picked up a small spinnerbait and really dialed it in. I could literally call every cast that was going to catch a fish. Just having that feeling, Being in the zone as it is called, is about as satisfying a feeling as you'll ever feel.


Most challenging part of tournament fishing

Being consistant.


When tournaments don't go my way

I look at them as a learning experience. If I know that what I did didn't work, then I try to figure out what did. Or what adjustments I should have made. Hindsight is always 20/20, but if I can use it as a learning tool, I'll be prepared not to make the same incorrect decisions next time.


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Find a knowledgable fisherman that is willing to take you out and learn from him. Fish the back of the boat at as many ABA events as you can. You can learn very quickly, observing a knowledable angler.


Some shared general bass fishing techniques for people just getting into the sport

Take the time to learn to cast accurately before you get on a boat. It will save you from losing lures and your tournament partners will appreciate it. Also learn to back a boat and trailer.
