“Bass fishing, for me, is something that I get to call a job. You know, I get to call it my career; I’ve done that for ten-plus years now. It’s provided a great living for my family, but even if I wasn’t able to make my living bass fishing, I would still be doing it. It’s something that I love to do. I’ve loved to do it since I was a little kid, and it’s something I want my kids to know and enjoy—that time of being out there in a boat and seeing the world come to life.”
