Meet Sonar


First of all I want to say how honored I am to be able to compete in the sport of bass fishing- a sport in which I am extremely passionate about.  I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to work hard to achieve the goals I set out for myself when I was a child, and I dont take for granted the people and experiences that have helped me along the way.  It is because of the people that follow my endeavors, my family, my friends and a group of the best sponsors a professional angler could hope to work with, that I am able to chase my dreams.  In honor of all of you I promise to continue to represent and promote this sport to the best of my ability and to always keep plugging away.  Thank you all very much!!
