COMPARING AND CONTRASTING TOP FLW ANGLERS
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST FISH?
JC: A bluegill, fishing with my dad, Reddy.
HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU FISHED YOUR FIRST TOURNAMENT?
JC: It was a bank-fishing derby, and I won it. It was by total length. Everyone else was fishing for bluegills, and I caught a shiner that was longer.
ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10, HOW WOULD YOU RATE LEDGE FISHING?
JC: I love doing it, just not in tournaments. I would say a 5.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FISHERY?
JC: Lake Champlain, because you can catch largemouths or smallmouths and fish from 4 inches to 40 feet deep and still catch them.
BESIDES BASS, WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SPECIES TO CATCH?
JC: Anything in saltwater. They fight so much harder, and you never know what you’ll catch.
ARE YOU A HUNTER?
JC: I went one time, and we got a 12-foot gator on the St. Johns River. Swamp People makes it look easy, but it’s hard work. It was unbelievable how hard it was.
HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF YOU WERE FORCED TO MOVE TO NEW YORK CITY?
JC: I’ve never been there, but went to Chicago and hated it. I was out of my element.
IF YOU WEREN’T A PRO FISHERMAN, WHERE WOULD YOU WORK?
JC: I would probably be working at Walmart or someplace like that.
WHO WOULD YOU RATHER TAKE FISHING: KANYE WEST OR KIM KARDASHIAN?
JC: Jeez, that’s a hard one. I’d probably be sick that day so I didn’t have to go.
