I have been tournament fishing since 1985 and worked with Allstar Rods (original owners Morgan and Dina) for 7 years, Anglers Choice for 7 years, Bass Cat Boats for 6 years, Mercury for 6 years, Maximum Fishing line for 6 years, Lowrance for 6 years, and Stanton Marine for 6 years.
I qualified for the All American several times, have several West Coast Bass and WON titles under my belt two time TOC winner, and have worked many ICAST and International Fishing Shows for my sponsors.
I was a tournament director for American Bass Association and have written many articles for several western fishing magazines and newspaper’s. In other words I have been around the fishing industry at all levels for many years.
I have been happily married to my wife Danielle, “Dani” for 25 years and reside in Kissimmee Florida with our son Cody for whom I quit tournament fishing professionally when he was three. I felt that living the real dream was with family not on the road 300 days per year.
2013 Schedule – B.A.S.S Southern’s, Northern’s, U.S. Open and as many local tournaments as possible.
Two years and two boats later, Toho Marine has been the best sponsor anyone could ask for. From the sales to the mechanics and everyone in between, by far the best experience in the boat business bar none!
If you would have told me two years ago I would have been working with Toho Marine & Outdoors helping develop stronger sales and client base using internet marketing and monthly newsletters, I would have laughed in your face. But I tell you that I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Not because they are a great sponsor and not because I have some obligation, heck I could by my boat anywhere, in over 20 years of tournament bass fishing I have never had such great support. The service and the customer care is awesome and they stand behind what they sell.
If you are buying a new boat then Toho is the spot and Joe is your man. He’s big but harmless!
