In his own words

I am a really strong family guy and feel that is important. I
am a simple person and kind of quiet. I enjoy the outdoors. With my family and a construction company, traveling back East would be hard to do. APEX is a huge opportunity for guys that aren’t trying travel and fish the Tour. Televised events are something that no one has done out here for the western anglers. It is super-exciting.

Behind the Angler

Nick grew up trout fishing; but took a hiatus from angling
while he became a professional bull rider. He returned with a curiosity in bass fishing. His wife’s uncle led him into the tournament scene, at the age of 24. He won the first tournament he entered – a Snag Proof Open.

In the Boat

Nick likes swimbaiting and always has a least five rods in the boat with a variety of them tied on, including Huddlestons, Ospreys and Basstrix. He is transitioning to finesse tackle and currently is carrying Float-N-Flies and Yamamoto Senkos.
