After winning the Rayovac FLW he gained the confidence needed to fish bigger tournaments and has since then focused on those including BASS Master Opens, FLW BFLs and FLW Costa tournaments. He is sponsored by Bass Pro shops and leads many seminars working with high school and college teams, helping them develop their fishing skills. Cpt.
