What you should know about Henry:

If you ask a question, expect nothing less than the truth


How Henry started fishing

I joined MBAA while station at Moody AFB in South Georgia. After a few years as a member, I became the director. A few years later, I was reassigned to Elmendorf AFB Alaska, where I fished for salmon, rainbow trout, steelhead, grayling and halibut. Upon my return I met Dave Fox ( a great friend) who was holding a membership drive at the Mall in Centerville Ga. To my suprize, MBAA had a new name, American Bass Anglers. I fished my first two ABA Tournaments with Dave and District 72 on Lake Sinclair, in Milledgeville Ga, finishing in 2nd place and big fish on Sat. and 1st place on Sun. What a way to to start! D-72 will always be my home...


Aspirations or goals with fishing

Become angler of the year and win the nationals


Favorite way to fish

Most exciting fishing experience

Fishing for Halibut and Salmon while stationed in Alaska


How Henry preps for a tournament

Looking over lake maps prior to practice trying to eliminate bad areas, checking all my equipment for the road trip and the lake


Three favorite search baits

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

First place in a two-day, I fished my favorite baits all day because of weather conditions and it paid off


Most challenging part of tournament fishing

Finding fish, then figuring out how to catch them


When tournaments don't go my way

Remember what i did and try not to do the same thing next time....If you keep doing the same think you should expect the same result!


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Patience is a virtue, Never give up!


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

Learn to fish a worm first, the rest will come, most of all remember that a fish doesn't have hands....
