Bill Dance, Jimmy Houston, Shaw Grigsby.........there are several I like. Mostly for their personable ways.

Tommy Biffle.....he's a local and I know his cousin......so kind of a more personal connection there.

Roland Martin, says a little about my age I guess. In his day he was like a Kevin Van Dam of today.

 

When I was watching the Classic the other day I was really impressed by the interviews Paul Mueller and Randy Howell gave. Both fellas knew exactly who to thank for their success and showed great humility. They appeared to be quality human beings. Congrats to both of them!

All time favorite would have to be Jimmy Houston...he is a crackup. Just a happy go lucky guy who loves to fish. Aaron Martens ranks up there in my book as far as the competing pros today. He seems like a classy guy from what I can tell.

I've never watched the classic before last week, so I only know of the big names in fishing. But I caught the interview with Paul Mueller after he set the record for most pounds in a day. I was impressed by his demeanor, and how he presented himself. He also knew who to give the credit to. I hope he does well in the world of fishing,and becomes a good role model for the sport.

Chris Lane, EE, Not KVD. No, not KVD. Sorry. Lost me a couple of years ago when he tried to stop others from going under the bridge in the classic. Nobody owns water.

Aaron Martens, because he is the best when conditions are the toughest. I also think he is the most intelligent.

For me it's Ike. I really admire the fact that he "never gives up". Coming from New Jersey, I've seen so many people chase the dream and end up with nothing but an empty bank account and a broken home. In NJ a trophy size bass is 6lbs, a good day is 4 fish, and you only have 8 months out of the year on the water. Our biggest lakes are measured in square acres, not miles, and the lakes are probably some of the most pressured in the country. For Ike to compete sucessfully on a consistent basis, and win the most coveted trophy in the sport, I think deserves some serious credit. Plus I get a kick out of how crazy he goes when he lands a bass, and I respect how business savvy he is. My #2 is Bill Dance for obvious reasons.

Yea I really like Ike too. He's just a little crazy and very entertaining. I turned on a fishing show, City Limits Fishing, one day and he was right here in St. Louis fishing with Ryan Casey of Showme Catfishing. They caught some nice blues. Before the show was even over I called Ryan and scheduled a trip. Since then we do this twice a year. We have caught some mighty big blues. Ofcourse the wife,( alias The Warden), has caught the biggest. A 47 pounder. We usually keep around 10 fish under 10 pounds and let the big ones go so others can enjoy catching a big fish. It is a lot of fun. Sometimes we fish right in front of the Arch.

Denny brauer is my favorite him and hank Parker are the nicest two I've personally met. Talked to hank and his quite wife for quite awhile a few years ago at the classic about his son driving nascar. Denny is just the man he fishes the way I fish.

On the flip side Roland martin was a ***** and I would have fought Boyd duckett at the boat ramp in demopolis one day

I like a lot of the pro's. They're awesome guys and great human beings. My all time favorite has to be Jimmy Houston though. Great guy with an amazing personality and he has such a positive outlook on everything!

I really don't know or have met any of them but am sure just like regular folks they have their good days and bad ones. Not excusing any of them either.
