As a young child, I always dreamed of doing something with bass fishing and in 2020 those dreams all started falling into place when sponsorship offers began to roll in. I was on cloud 9 and couldn’t believe the opportunities I had received, but all of that came to halt when I was involved in a vehicle accident totaling the vehicle I was driving and damaging my brand new bass boat. As being pro-staff for 6th Sense Fishing, Waterland Sunglasses and several other companies, it is important I spend as much time on the water as possible and now I have no way to fish and represent my sponsors. I was forced to fish out of my “Tin Rig” and my plastic “Tupperware Boat” as my buddies like to call it, to be able to go fishing and produce the content I needed to represent my sponsors. With all the complications that COVID-19 has caused and companies not being at full staff, it’s been a long miserable five plus months while waiting on parts. With the amazing work and service from the guys over at Boat Workx, a fiberglass repair company based out of Pineville, La., I was able to get my boat back looking like it was fresh off the showroom floor! Finally the time came to put her back in the water and I was able to break the boat back in by putting together this big bag of spawning largemouth bass out of a Rapides Parish lake. Big thanks to Michael Belgard and the guys over at Boat Workx for all the curve balls they encountered and overcame to ensure quality customer service and the flawless work they did on making my bass boat look showroom quality after the wreck. It’s good to be back chasing my dreams again and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without them!
