Least Favorite Bay or Water: Corpus Christi bay, Upper Laguna Madre

Favorite Bait: Popping cork and gulp because it reminds me of being a little kid waiting for your bobber to go down. Croakers because it's just plum fun fishing. White Skitter walker I can't get enough of a top water bite.

Favorite Rod: Hook Spit performance pitchfork beat all a round rod for every type of in shore fishing. Hook Spit performance custom rods for those certain actions I like working bigger baits to spinner baits and ext. Hook Spit performance black water series 10xd, for fishing 30ft or deeper water which I like a stiffer rod for that I can count on. Hook Spit performance wader light for wading in the colder months for big trout.

Favorite Knot: Improved clinch knot, just a easy knot to use and it is fast for me to ti.

Favorite Boat: Scb stingray/ recon sharp looking boats with the performance numbers to back them up to be one of the top bay boats out there. Jh 23 outlaw it can turn on a dime as well as get super skinny, and take the rough water.

Started Fishing At the Age Of: 5

Started Fishing Tournaments at the Age Of: 23

Do you get nervous before tournaments? I would say a little bit. I come into a tournament keeping my confidence up no matter what, as well as looking at the bright side of things.

Largest Slot Redfish caught to date: 10.25lbs 27-7/8"

Your most memorable fishing moment: When I caught my first big alligator Gar that weighed 148 pounds and 7ft 4in long. Reason I was by myself when the action took place and it was a fight as soon as I set the hook till after I had it aboard my boat.

Your biggest fishing influence: My father Mike Bahr since he is the one that got me started in fishing. He just never knew I would take it this far. Captain Keith Sullivan he as always been there for me when I had questions or advice.
