How many days a year do you fish? More than I care to count!

Favorite piece of gear? My Browning Citori/Bionic Blade combo. One of my friends turned me on to it, and I fish all species with this rig.

Gear you splurged on? My Browning Citori/Bionic Blade combo. I like it that much!

Most memorable outing in Illinois? Went to a slough near Valley City. There were Asian carp trying to swim up a culvert, and they were so thick I probably could've walked on them. I got a gig from a friend's truck and went to town!

What got you interested in fishing? Taught myself when my parents bought a house on a lake. There are thousands of dollars in fishing lures and equipment in the lake near my old dock.

How long have you been fishing? Since I was 7 years old.

Favorite species to fish for? I like river fishing. No particular species. I think it's just that almost anything you could catch in the river could be pretty big.

Favorite places to fish in Illinois? Strip mine lakes near Cuba, places on Illinois and Mississippi rivers that border Pike County
