Your personal and fishing accomplishments:

Best Fishing Story: My entire life has been a "Best Fishing Story". It would be tough to pick just one. Watching my father catch a 6.2 Smally on a Pop'R with ultra-light gear certainly would be one of them. Watching one of my best friends set on a 7 pounder in a tournament was another. Surviving a lightning strike in a tournament and cashing a check that covered most of the electronics that were fried was certainly memorable. My first tournament wins in Maine and Florida stand out as well. I have been fortunate enough to bring several people along for their first tournament victories, fishing as teams and individually. After over 20 years of tournaments and many wins, sometimes you forget just how important it is to get that first win and the feeling it gives an aspiring tournament fisherman, to see their hands shake a little after catching a lunker and putting it in the livewell, to witness that nervousness and excitement that fades a little after hundreds of tournaments, to see their face after the weigh-in is over and they receive their first tourney check and trophy, and knowing they are "hooked".
