CJ started fishing at about 4 years old from the bank of small farm ponds with his father. With a continued growth for the sport of bass fishing he eventually bought a bass boat and fished throughout the mid-west and Tennessee. Making a career out of the military he has been able to fish all over the county as well as the some locations around the world. After retiring from the US Air Force he relocated to West TN and started fishing out of a kayak, the first of which he purchased from Hook1!
His passion for kayak fishing led him to start the first ever Kayak Fishing Club in West TN (West TN Bass Yakkers). With the help from some of the great anglers in the Nashville area he also started the states first Heroes On the Water Chapter. With a great dedication to advancing the sport of kayak angling he is always willing to help someone new to the sport get on the water.
CJ’s spends as much time on the water as he can spare working on techniques that he uses during numerous tournaments throughout the year.
