Charity Events

Hot Rod and Reels
Hot Rod and Reels Event held at Lake Lloyd located inside the Daytona 500 Speedway. This event is held during the Daytona 500 event, the event is to help fund new wheel chairs for youth who are afflicted with either an illness or accident that had caused them to need a high tech wheel chair. I will be paired with a NASCAR Cup driver to fish for a couple hours in a tournament.  In 2013 I was fortunate enough to win the event with Clint Bower.  So we will be looking forward to the 2014 event to try defend our win!   If you would like to find out more information take a look at the following website:


Warriors on the Water
WWontheWater imagesThis is a wonderful event held each spring on Lake Jordan the pairs anglers with returning soldiers for a day on the water. Throughout all of my fishing experiences I can truly say this event is the one that I look forward to the most. I have been fortunate to meet some great men and women during my visits to this event. The event starts on Wednesday with a great Icebreaker party held at Fort Bragg, during the Icebreaker anglers get a chance to meet and greet our wonderful military personal and also their families. The next day is spent on both Fort Bragg and Pope Air force bases, while there we get to participate in a few training exercises and visit with some of our wounded soldiers to help brighten their days.
I will promise you without our brave men and women of the military we would not have the freedoms we all enjoy. These men and women sacrifice so much of their lives and time just so you and I can be free and safe. I am very grateful for all of the work and dedication that they show every day. So to all of the Men and Women of the US Military I want to thank you for all that you do, and there will always be room in my boat if you will give me the privilege of spending a few hours on the water with you.
