This week’s featured Power-Pole pro staff member:
Hometown: Gainesville, Florida
Home water: Orange Lake and the “Big Bend” on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
Describe your life as an angler/outdoorsman: I’ve been a professional angler since I was 18 yrs old. That’s all I’ve ever done to make a living. We’re an avid outdoor family and it’s our life!
Preferred Species to Target: Bass, snook, tarpon, bonefish, permit, tripletail, redfish.
Favorite Fishing Technique: Anything with light tackle.
First Fishing Memory: Catching bream with my mom and granddad on our home lake in Sanford, Florida
Favorite ‘Personal Best’ Fish: Catching my biggest bass while filming an instructional video for Shimano. Although I was unable to weigh that fish before releasing it, it easily exceeded 12 pounds.
Favorite Fishing Moment: Probably when I went to Mazatlan, Mexico to film bass and offshore saltwater. I caught largemouth bass up to 9 pounds, a mahi weighing 60 pounds, numerous Pacific sailfish over 100 pounds, and a 300-pound marlin on 20-pound spinning tackle. All in just four days and all of it was caught on camera!
Pro Staff Since: 2005.
Best part of owning a Power-Pole: Like all JL Marine products, my Power-Poles give me an advantage any time I’m on the water. Whether I’m working a school of largemouth in shallow weeds or skipping overhanging mangroves for snook, I know my Power-Poles will provide the stealth and control required to fool those fish.
Why are you an effective ambassador for Power-Pole? Because I believe in the brand, its products and most of all, its people. JL Marine continually raises the bar on innovation, product integrity and customer support, and they are, by far, the best company I represent.
Throughout my career, I’ve tried to align myself with the best brands in every category. And, as far as I’m concerned, Power-Pole is the onlyshallow-water anchor. And that makes promoting them simple. Quality products help sell themselves!
