Chris was raised and taught to fish and hunt at a young age. It’s always been a passion and a way of life in his family. As he grew older there came a point in his life when he saw others win fishing tournaments and he knew that he could compete at their level. Soon after Chris signed up for an amateur tournament called the PES out of Rockport, Texas. There he won biggest slot Redfish. That’s where it all started and the real competitive drive kicked in to win. Some people sit back and take all the credit for their success but that is not Chris. He wouldn’t be half the fisherman he is today if it wasn’t for fishing with his dad, friends and teammates. Together they entered tournaments up and down the Texas coast line. Starting from Port O’Connor down to South Padre they began to place in the top ten. They pushed more to a top five finish in the Possum International and second place in the Y-Tac. Not giving up they fished through the winter and the following year they signed back up for the Y-Tac and took first place. Then a month later took down first place in the API in South Padre. Now Chris is motivated more than ever. He still has a lot more tournaments to win and keep pushing team Reel Locos and Shockwave to be the best on the Texas and Louisiana Coastline. For Chris, success comes to those that don’t give up and keep pushing to be the best.
