I grew up fishing in crappiei paradise, 10 minutes from Arkabutla. Have been fishing the big 4 north Ms reservoirs most of my life. I catch crappie, period! I don't fish for any other species. If you fish with me, you will catch many other species but giant Mississippi crappie are what I target. I primarily slow troll (spider rig) but also vertical jig and pull crankbaits some in the summer. I do whatever it takes to catch fish.

I am a 16 year veteran professional firefighter. My schedule allows me, on average, 20 days off a month and I'm on the water most of those days. I am passionate about crappie fishingi and though I love firefighting, I am looking forward to the day when my true obsession can be full time.

I started tournament fishing a couple years ago, on a limited basis and have won several small local events and placed well in the few national circuit events that I have entered.

I really enjoy meeting new people and sharing what I have learned about these wonderful fish. I will tailor a fishing trip to the clients needs and large groups can be accomodated.
