Tell us a little about yourself:

I was born and raised in Paragould, Arkansas. I have been fishing since I was a little boy. I am 55 years old. I am married to my beautiful wife, Sharleena. I have two children, Becky Girola and Kody Whitney. I like to bass fish for the competition and crappie fish for fun and table fair. I have been President of our local bass club for the past 5 years. See our Facebook page: Greene County Bass Club

What is your favorite fishing technique?
My favorite technique for bass would be cranking. I believe that you can generate a reaction strike from inactive fish with this bait.

What’s your best fishing memory?

My most memorable experience from fishing would be winning the 2001 CrappieUSA National Championship at Patoka Lake in Indiana

What’s your biggest fishing dream?

My biggest dream would be to see my son compete in the Bassmaster Classic someday. FYI....he's good!!lol

What motivates you to be part of the Zeko ProStaff?

I believe that we as anglers have the responsibility to introduce others to our sport. Young and old. . I own the "Strike King" style of Zeko's. I love them!!!!! I am proud to be representing.
