How did you start in your sport? (What’s your origin story?)

I started fishing when I was very young, catching creek chub in a little creek behind the house. I soon graduated to fishing local ponds, and fell in love fishing for big bass. I finally got off the bank, and got my first kayak and have been tournament fishing ever since.

What is your favorite Dakota Lithium Product & WHY?

I run my Humminbird Helix 10 MEGA SI using my Dakota lithium 50 a/h. That big screen paired with MEGA imaging sucks up a lot of juice, and my Dakota Lithium powers it for days and still light enough to carry in the front hatch of my kayak.
