Partner Name:Jaime Pinter
Technique Strength: I would say my 2 main strengths are; to try and think "outside the box" by never discounting a particular area or particular technique in that area AND to always stay positive and calm on tourney day.
Technique Weakness: Trying to figure out "if they will eat anything else?"
Favorite Bay or Water: Matagorda/Where I learned how to fish. Upper Laguna/For the vast area/options it provides and the water is always clean to me! Delacroix/Vast area and great sight fishing.
Least Favorite Bay or Water: POC/Too crowded. Port Isabel/Too far.
Favorite Bait: Dark Colored Bass Assassins/They are very soft, which creates a more realistic feel.
Favorite Rod: Laguna 6'9 Redfish Special/Tons of backbone, but good enough action to chunk 1/4 ounce baits.
Favorite Knot: Palomar/It doesn't break
Favorite Boat: JH Performance Outlaw 23.5/Handling, Ride, Shallow water capability is ridiculous, and GREAT PEOPLE TO WORK WITH.

Do you get nervous before tournaments? Sure I get nervous, but that is because I am a very competitive individual. Getting nervous is a good thing as long as you can handle it right!
Largest Slot Redfish caught to date: 10+lbs
Your most memorable fishing moment: Winning the 2013 Rudy's G-Town event with a long-time friend.
Your biggest fishing influence: My uncle, Richard Waller. He worked directly with Lew Childre and Shimano designing reels and fished for a living during the 70's and 80's. Every time I talk/talked to him, it is about fishing. Him and my dad would always go on fishing trips together and leave me at home, saying I was too young. It would always burn me up and make me want to go more!
