From a very young age I have always been passionate about fishing. I grew up fishing for bass in ponds, lakes and rivers around my hometown of Dothan, Alabama. I was given my first kayak by my uncle when I was 16 and the gift opened my eyes to a whole new style of fishing. I moved to Pensacola, Fl in September of 2011 and immediately knew that saltwater fishing was better than anything I had experienced before. I began fishing as often as possible haven’t looked back. I never pass up an opportunity to learn something new and also to share what I have learned with others. I began taking classes at the University of West Florida in the fall of 2012. In the spring of 2013 I formed a kayak fishing club at UWF with some of my fellow students and we competed in the College Kayak Fishing series where we took 4th place in the first year. I also enjoy fishing in other tournaments ranging from South Florida to Texas.
