Grew up in Napales, FL. fishing the crystal clear waters for all species of fish from Snook to Grouper. Â Moves to Lake Pontcartrain in early 90’s and learned to fall in love with the fertile wetlands of Louisiana. Â Began fishing many bass tournaments with several wins and places and then moved my focuses in to redfish tournaments with several top 3 finishes. Â I am a firm believer in the Matrix Shad as it is the best soft plastic lure I have ever seen in my 40 + years of fishing.
