I was born and raised in Arizona and have had the opportunity to live all over the US almost from coast to coast.  After graduating high school from New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, NM, I accepted an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY.  While at West Point I majored in Mechanical Engineering and had the privilege to play football for Army.

 

Upon graduation from West Point, I was commissioned as a 2nd lieutenant in the US Army Corps of Engineers where I trained and served at multiple duty stations (Fort Leonard Wood, MO, Fort Benning, GA, Fort Hood, TX, Camp Bedrock, Bosnia, and Camp Castle, South Korea).  Upon fulfilling my 5 year commitment to the Army, I took a job with General Electric in Kansas City where I spent 5 years.  I then relocated to El Paso, TX for 4 years, Houston 1 year, and finally Austin.

 

As I moved throughout my career, my boat always went with me and I bass fished all along the way (both competitively and recreationally).  Because I relocated so much, I was forced to quickly learn how to fish new lakes.  I’ve fished just about every type of water that the US has to offer from deep, clear riverine reservoirs in Arizona and New Mexico to big upland reservoirs in Missouri to vegetation-filled and tree stump littered lowland reservoirs here in Texas.  Through my experience in fishing all of those lakes, I’ve learned fishing techniques that I’ve been able to successfully apply almost everywhere.

 

Whether you want to learn a specific technique, how to find fish, establish a pattern or just go catch fish, book your trip today and LET’S GO FISHIN’!!!
