I don't know if I will complete this but I started just to see what happens.  I will have to do a little research to get good dates on some of the larger tournaments that I have done well in over the past years and I also have an Ultimate Bass Circut AOY, I'm just not certain of the year.  I have turned several sponsor offers down in the past but do not think that I will turn anymore offers down and will promote a quality product to the best of my ability.

I did not spell check and just kicked this out in about 30 minutes so don't kick my butt too bad on the grammer.  I know it needs allot of work.

Current Position:  
   Senior Master Sergeant United States Air Force Reserves
   Operations Intelligence Superintendant

Born and raised primarily in North Carolina.  Joined the US Air Force in 1986 and ended up stationed at Barksdale AFB, LA in July 1987.  This is where my passion for bass fishing began and has continued until present.  I am very familiar with all types of presentations and baits but I prefer and am the most proficient with the following baits.  Spinnerbaits, Jig and Craw Worm, Tubes, and Buzzbaits.   Primary lakes that I fish are structure lakes with anything from docks to cypress trees.  Night fishing is also a time on the water when I really excel.  I have won many large night tournaments in the area and have been requested to guide several times over the years.  Most notable guide trip was with the US STRATCOM Commander (4 Star General that was visiting Barksdale AFB).   I receive multiple calls and emails every month asking for advise and presentation techniques.  I know that if I was trying to promote a product that fellow anglers would listen.  Of course I would have to have success with the product before I could endorse it.  My military career Field is built off of integrity and I bring that in the boat, on the lake, and to the weigh-in.
