I have been Addicted to Bass Fishing since I was old enough to cast a line. I have photos of myself in a stroller with a rod in my hand on the bank of a Lake. I was born in Kansas and grew up fishing there, Missouri, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Then it happened......my family moved to Texas. Nuff said...... I became a regular at Lake Fork and developed a friendship with a resort owner there. I moved to Washington for my job in 1995 and believe it or not, did not fish until 2001. That is when I was introduced to Smallmouth. It was and still IS hard for me to fish the wrong side of the boat for Smallies, but I am getting used to it. If I have a choice between Green and Brown fish....I usually always pick Green. I would rather fish 12 hours and catch 2 or 3 Largemouth than 20 smallmouth. I try to learn something every day on the water and strive to become a better Angler every year.
