I discovered bass fishing at the age of 11 in Japan and fell in love with it. When I was in high school, I saw a TV show that talked about the Bassmaster Classic. It was unlike anything I had ever seen and made me dream about becoming a professional bass fisherman in America. Two weeks after graduating high school in Japan, I moved to the US to chase my dream, leaving all my family and friends. Arkansas became home away from home and I further developed my fishing skills while attending college. While in college, I won a BFL tournament and the ASA National Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship.
After graduating from the University of Arkansas, I moved to Florida with the desire of learning all about Florida bass fishing and started competing in bigger tournaments – the Bassmaster Southern Opens. Because I had a lot invested in my fishing career, I needed a boat dealer who is professional and trustworthy. When I met the folks at Toho Marine and walked into the shop for the first time, I knew that I had found the one. They have been great partners, always professional in the way they service my boat and getting it done in a timely manner – it’s like having my own personal factory service crew. My goal has always been the same and I continue to make every effort to achieve my dream. I know I can trust Toho Marine and I will rely on them for all my boating needs along the way.
