Mine was Boy Scouts - big pond/lake on one of the many private ranches we were fortunate to be allowed to access. I won biggest and most bass, but they decided to give one of the prizes to another kid.

Back then, people didn't go PETA when you ate a bass.

no photo but it was back in the late 80's with dad and his bass club. we won a few small club tournaments. dad was a texas rig throwing guy. brown powerworm was his juice. i fished with whatever he let me use, which was mostly jigs now that I think about it. I know why now... to reduce hang ups roflmao But the jig is my juice thanks to him and my stepdad.

Texoma bass club around 1985 with my uncle Steve. We were fishing out of a 21’ prototype bass boat with a hoped up 235 OMC. Felt like it ran 100mph.

Can’t remember my first win. It was a local club deal. I remember my first ever tourney back in 1979…I was 11 and I got 7th out of 200 or so “wannabe pros”. I was fishing from the front of my dads jet boat. I won $170 and a butt seat. We laughed because the butt seat for a bass boat was useless to me. Lewisville lake.

First solo win in a bigger tourney was a Media event. Cedar Creek.

Sad. I really can’t remember the first win. It was a team tourney, just don’t remember which lake.

The guy that got second for the third year in a row was a stick.

First win was at the BASS weekend series at Palestine as a co angler
Was cold as hell. Caught a limit of 3 fish for like 11 lbs My boater zeroed but took home about. 5 lb channel cat I caught on a jig. Was the best feeling in the world at the time

Haha, that was the 2day event on Fork. It was one of the funnest events all year. Ed and I won it in 03, I believe. Day 1, we had a sack of unders at 12.92. That was the heaviest sack of unders for a while until they started catching 13# sacks around 07 or 08. Day 2, Ed caught an 11.18 to go with 4 more great unders and that was that.

I had two high 10s sacks of unders in 04 and lost to Buda and Tad. Pretty sure I was 2nd in 03. Elton made me a second plate "paper plate" trophy.
