Music I listen to

I listen to a little bit of everything, but country is what I always come back to when the chips are down.

People I look up to

My Dad. He introduced me to the outdoors and never forced anything on me. He never "dragged" me to the lake or out to the deer lease. I wanted to go because I knew I would get to spend quality time with him and see all the glory that God has created for us.

Interesting facts about me

I live in Many, LA. I was an x-ray/CT tech at Christus Schumpert Health System in Shreveport, LA from 1997-2009. After being out of work for 8 months, I have now started working at the Natchitoches Regional Hospital.  I live on the shores of Toledo Bend Lake and love it. I don't fish many tournaments any more but find the occasional one to try my luck in. Dad and I used to compete together in the Oilmen's tournaments on Toledo Bend. (Dad was with Pennzoil and later with Apache Corporation). Anybody familiar with Toledo Bend has probably heard of the Oilmen tourneys. They are usually anywhere from 350-750 teams depending on which tournament it is. Dad and I generally collected a check that would pay for our expenses and that's about it, but the time spent together was the important part to me. We did put it all together and win the very first Louisiana Oilmen's tournament in 1995. (gosh that seems like so long ago now but I remember it like it was yesterday) That was a big thrill for the two of us after fishing together for so long. Dad had me in the boat starting as far back as I can remember. The first pic I have of me holding a bass is when I was 3 years old. We spent lots of time in the Atchafalaya Basin and on Lake Henderson when we lived in Lafayette, LA but then he got transferred to Houston in 1980 and we primarily fished Toledo Bend from there. My first boat was a 1992 Sabre with an Evinrude Intruder 150.  After enjoying that rig for 20 years, I finally moved up into a 2004 Cougar/225 Mercury Optimax. I sold my Sabre to a good friend and he is now enjoying it as much as I did.  I hope to make many more memories in the Cougar and if it lasts me another 20 years I'll be a happy fisherman.

    Like your boat!!!!
    You have good taste in colors, my 92 PII is the same colors, and I won't get a new one til this one is wrecked or stolen, I just love my old boat.

    Thanks.  I love my old boat too.  I would like a newer/bigger Cat but this one will have to last me a bit longer.  It still runs well and looks good.  I do my best to keep it up.  I always liked the looks of the "Raspberry" (maroon) color on a boat and I was very pleased when I was able to purchase this one.  It's not the fastest thing on the water but it gets me where I'm going every time.
