Having extensively fished the big waters of Lake Erie and the smaller inland lakes in Ohio, Jim started participating in various tournaments.

Jim was very informative, teaching multiple techniques and locations specific for Lake Guntersville.  The next day caught a 7 pound LM using the,knowledge provided by Jim.  Highly recommend him regardless of your level of fishing knowledge.
