Here are some of my accomplishments!
Hank Parker is a 2 time Bassmaster Classic Champion and is a true legend of our sport and the professional bass fishing world. This will forever be one of my most memorable days on the water. I first met Hank Parker at the Mercury Marine summit in Wisconsin. We chatted and he said we will keep in touch and maybe get out on the water someday. (In my mind thinking, "Imagine that!! but theres no way, stop lying hank, you aint gonna call me. lol") A few short weeks later he gave me a shout and left me a message while I was out on the water practicing for a tournament. The second I heard the message, that I had the opportunity to co host on his show, I instantly started throwing my rods in my rod lockers and made the drive down to Clayton, NY. I was honoured and lucky enough to take part in this. The show will be airing in 2020 on the pursuit and sportsman channel. It was an unbelievable day on the water!

This past summer, the entire Mercury team attended the Mercury Marine summit at the main headquarters in Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin. I met tons of amazing people and learned a bunch. During the event, we shot a Mercury GO BOLDLY promotional video. Stay tuned!
Coming into this tournament my tournament partner Danny and I said "Were do for a flop..". Coming into this event we had qualified for the Costa championship 2 out of the three years through the FLW Canada championship and new we had some work to do and the pressure was on. Going into day three we were sitting in 8th place, and at 2:00 (Hour before weigh in) we had 2 fish for 6 pounds in the box. We gambled in the last hour of the day on what we felt was our best bet to cacth what we needed to have a shot at this thing. We caught our entire bag that was just under 19 pounds in the final moments of the tournament. We finished second and re qualified for the FLW Costa championship on Lake Cumberland in Kentucky.

After fishing the Costa championship in 2017 and 2018, words could not describe how bad I wanted to get back and re qualify in 2019. I decided to fish the FLW Costa series along with FLW Canada to have 2 opportunities to try and qualify throughout the season. I was fortunate enough to finish 16th overall after three events and qualified for the FLW Costa Championship through the Northern series. Could not do this without my amazing sponsors along with all of my friends and family for all their support!
I am thankful and honoured to announce I have partnered up with Durham Tourism and #FishingDurham.

And that's a wrap for the @flwfishing Costa Championship.

20I5-B.A.S.S Nation Eastern Divisional - Connecticut River
Going from catching 24 pounds of smallmouth last year on the St lawrence River to fishing for a limit on the Connecticut river was super painful. Ive never fished tiadal water before and it was pretty awesome to learn a little bit about it. Day one went as planned and we got 4 cute ones in the boat to lead the day with just over 5 pounds. Day 2, we just couldnt get them to go and zero'd going from Ist to last. Just goes to show, just because your leading it really doesnt mean nothing. You have to catch them good both days to win......

20I5 --- Eastern Divisionals for 20I6 - Douglas Lake, TN
I had the choice of marshaling the Elites on Lake St. Clair or to fish the B.A.S.S Nation Qualifier on Lake Erie. I chose the qualifier, and i'm glad i did! This was my first qualifier as a senior now that I am done with the Highschool Circut. I was going into day one with just under 9 pounds for a 3 fish limit sitting in I6th place. To make the team as a non, you needed to make the top ten cut and I figured I needed at least I0 pounds to make it. I ended up climbing the leader board all the way from I6th to a 2nd place finish with a..... Click to read FULL report. DOUGLAS LAKE, TENNESSEE HERE WE COME for the B.A.S.S Eastern Divisional!

the event. Our qualifier was I0 days before the nationals and we didnt find a coach till 3 days before the tournament. We didn.......Click for more.
