In his own words

I love my family, I love the Lord, and I love bass fishing. I’ve spent 10 years in the Marine Corp, where you develop camaraderie. Bass fishing is like that, and I love the camaraderie we have in the sport. I am a simple businessman that has big dreams about fishing stuff. I am just that simple guy that has been accepted into a big venue. I’ve been watching APEX develop and was thinking it was something that I couldn’t do. Then I qualified through  Wild West. It’s a wonderful platform and circuit with big names that I’ve always admired. Now, I will be competing with them.


In 1999/2000 the All-Star Championship winner was paired with Johnny Johnson in a draw tournament. We have been fishing together for 20 years since then.

Behind the Angler

Andrew began fishing with his dad as a youngster. As he got older, he became interested in tournament fishing. After being invited to fish a derby with a friend, he fell in love with the sport.

In the Boat

Andrew always carries something to eat and a swimbait in his boat. His go-to is a Money Minnow.
