Hey everyone, Jake "the snake" Anderson commented on my profile requesting I share some fish pics I figured I should probably do that and introduce myself so here goes-
I'm Colby & live in Oregon and am new to the site! I probably wont post a ton as I'm aware this is a Washington based forum but I hope to learn from some of you and participate where applicable. I was drawn to this site by a few members, over the years I've watched Tag constantly catch giant fish from the NW which is extremely entertaining and motivational I'm sure for most, also my cousin is Austin Heyer, we had fished years ago on a family vacation, lost contact and recently re-met eachother to find we both developed a love for bass fishing! Too crazy.
I've been bass fishing almost all my life, and started fishing tournaments as a co-angler when I was 11 in Northern California, mostly on Shasta. I currently am going to college at a local community college and fishing tournaments as well, bass fishing is my passion and I would love to pursue it as a profession one day. I fished in the FLW High school tournaments where I won state, regionals and placed 2nd at Nationals. Tournament bass fishing is my ultimate focus but I have an unquenchable addiction to fishing for trophy fish predominantly with swimbaits but other baits as well. In the past I was known as pretty much a die-hard swimbait fisherman but have since branched out and value all types of fishing and believe they are critical in finding constant success. I have had some great success fishing whatever tournaments I can thus far and plan to keep learning and developing my tactics and instincts to the point where one day I may be able to compete on a grand scale! That's the goal anyways.
I'm unsure of what typical protocol for joining the site is as far as bio's go but I figured I would post here, I also am trying to attach some photos of some nice fish from this year, hopefully it works. If this was posted in the wrong area and a mod could move it/edit it appropriately that would be great! This site is constructed a lot different than other forums I'm part of so I'm still learning, lol.
