Largest bass caught to date: 10-pound, 8-ounce largemouth at Lake Amistad in an Elite Series event. That's the biggest I’ve ever weighed.

Most memorable bass fishing moment: When I won the inaugural Elite 50 event in 2004 at Lake Dardanelle

Statement about Major League Fishing: I loved the whole exciting experience. I love the instant information (leader board). It took the intensity level up a couple of notches. It was a neat experience to know every time somebody catches a fish. Knowing you're still in the hunt was intense.

Last year I watched all the extended versions of the Lake Amistad event, and it kind of prepped me a little bit. Even though I wasn’t in it, I was feeling the intensity. So I kind of knew the feeling from watching it. But actually being in it, I couldn't believe how time just flies by. You really get a chance to see how clutch you are.
