From a young age, I was introduced to fishing and I now have the opportunity to pursue my dreams in the fishing industry with the goal of fishing the entire FLW circuit and winning an FLW event. Besides being an up and coming professional angler I’m a Police Officer with Bay Area Rapid Transit in California. As a Police Officer, I have the responsibilities that involves the protection of life and property, providing information and assistance to the public, enforcement of laws and ordinances, criminal investigation and crime prevention and suppression. When I’m not fishing, or working I enjoy spending time with my family and hunting. My wife, Melissa, my 5-year-old son, Vincent, and 2-year-old daughter, Raelynn all love the outdoors. I believe it’s important to challenge myself and follow my passion as I want to lead by example and teach my son and daughter to challenge them selves and follow their passion one day. Some of my fishing tournaments and accomplishments consist of:

  • 2016 Ultimate Frog Challenge – Pro – 3rd Place
  • 2016 Police, Fire and Corrections Badge Packer Tournament – 5th Place
  • 2015 California Delta Future Pro Tournament – 13th Place
  • 2016 River2Sea Open – 14th Place
  • 2016 FLW California Delta – 45th Place
  • Tracy Bass Turkey Shoots – Several 1st Place Wins

My passion for this sport is great and I love being challenged and adapting to multiple new situations.

Delta Fishing Reports

Delta Map

Delta Report July 8/9

I hit the delta this past Friday and Saturday for the first time in over a month. My plan of attack was to toss a frog all day for the next two days. I took everything out of the boat but my frog box and two frog rods.  Friday, I got a late start to the day. I was really waiting for the tide to start topping off and catch the swing of the low tide. I couldn’t have hit the tide any better. I started in disappointment slough and worked my way to the main channel and back around too little potatoe/ White Slough.  Just about every stop produced a nice fish anywhere from 2 to 4 pounds. I did find a little piece of matted vegetation that produced a nice 7 pound fish. I got off the water by 3:00 and ended up with a nice 19 pound bag for 5.

Day 2

My buddy and I launched out of ladds around 6am. We ran the main channel  berm jumping all the way to Middle River. Immediately I land a 9 pound fish, we hop down 20 yards and my buddy sticks a 4, I trade off and stick a 3, we make another small move and he sticks another solid fish.  The wind started to pick up around 9:30 we made the decision to head south. We kept berm jumping all the way to Victoria Canal continuously catching solid fish. We found our best bites coming in fast current areas with matted vegetation near them.  We got off the water about 2:00 pm end up with 26 pounds for 5.
