In his own words

I came up into the pro ranks through the amateur ranks and would do anything to help beginners chase their dreams. I like helping people. I wanted to fish the APEX as it is the highest level of tournament fishing.


A 9-lb 14-oz and 10 pounder, both caught in a 4-Day FLW on the Delta, the 10-pounder earned the daily Big Bass Honor and cemented his seat in the top-10 for the final field cut. FLW Delta 4th place, five top-10’s in FLW events out of 14 fished

Behind the Angler

As a youngster, Tim fished big game with his step-dad and black bass with his uncle and cousin. In 1989, he fished his first tournament at Folsom in an aluminum fishing boat. He finished 10th place out of 100 anglers and started his life in competitive bass fishing.

In the Boat

Tim always carries a variety of fishing tackle. His favorite lure to throw is a vibrating jig.
