In his own words

I am a retired police officer of 32 years. I am working on a fishing podcast that will launch soon. I hope it is something that can reach out to people in the bass fishing community. I watched the new competitive layout of APEX and liked how it was new, innovative, had live updates, and gave the fishermen an opportunity to fish by themselves. That is what got me interested in APEX.

Behind the Angler

Jerry got his start in the sport of fishing with an introduction to trout by his father and uncle. A trip to Bass Lake and a plastic worm turned into his debut as a bass catcher. His tournament career started in high school.

In the Boat

Jerry always has a Roboworm tied on and some type of jig with a Yamamoto trailer.
