Meet Your Guide

I’ve been bass fishing for over 40 years. Prior to guiding, I served in the US Army for over 20 years and spent 4 years in Iraq. While serving, I would fish tournaments and take fellow Soldiers out bass fishing. I realized I enjoyed teaching others how to catch fish as much as catching them myself…After I retired, I started guiding professionally. I’m happily married with two teenage daughters and a zoo’s worth of animals. 

The Gear

Scott primarily uses Shimano and Daiwa reels with Abu Garcia and Denali rods. You will fish out of a 2019 Skeeter ZX250 with an Ultrex trolling motor, dual power poles, and humminbird electronics. Equipment provided for every trip.

My 40 Year Love Affair with Fishing

I started fishing almost 40 years ago. When I was 5 years old, my parents bought my brother and I zebco 33s for our birthday and life was never the same. We would spend every waking hour at the local ponds in Charlotte. In fact, we enjoyed it a bit too much. We decided fishing was more important than school and made the executive decision to schedule fishing trips during school hours…. Once my parents got wind of this and seized our rods and bikes, we just toughened up and hiked to the ponds and fished with tree limbs, a little bit of line, and a hook baited with mussels (we had a creek loaded with them).

When I was around 10 years old or so, I went out with my uncle, who was a commercial fisherman, fishing for crabs in the summer and oysters in the winter on the Chesapeake bay. I was hooked. I knew then what I wanted to do. It only took me around 30 years to get around to it.

Why Bronze Star Fishing?

Fishing is a great way for me to give back to my fellow veterans. I offer discounts to all veterans who fish with me and have worked with charities like Warriors on the Water to provide trips to less fortunate combat veterans. During my last combat deployment, a couple of my buddies and I were discussing what we would do when the Army was no longer our life. At first, they laughed when I told them my plans, but over time, each became interested in the life of a fisherman. I started this business with the hopes that my Army buddies would eventually join me.  They are retiring from the Army soon. We will see if they sign up!

Why Fish with Me?

I will work hard to make your time with me enjoyable, relaxing, and memorable. Each trip is tailored to your needs. Whether you are a seasoned angler looking to jumpstart your learning of a new lake, looking to spend a relaxing day on the water with family, or seriously in pursuit of that personal best, monster bass, I can help out. When fishing with me, you do the fishing, not me. You fish up front and I provide any tips or advice needed.
