If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.
COMPETING. LEARNING. SHARING.
I am a St. Louis, Missouri based competitive angler obsessed with the pursuit of bigger, better fish. I also follow the mantra of "always give back", so my goal is to share my knowledge and my passion with as many folks as possible.
My main focus is kayak bass fishing, although if it has fins and swims, I'll try to catch it!
I am very grateful to have formed some fantastic relationships with some awesome companies. This allows me to fish competitively and meet some of the best anglers in the world. But don't worry, it's not all about me. I'll share tips, tricks, and gear so don't be afraid to ask.
As a member of the Vibe Pro Fishing Team, I am very excited to be fishing from a Sea Ghost 130 as my primary kayak for the 2019 tournament season. The Sea Ghost 130 gives me the stability I need to handle the big waters such as Kentucky Lake and Table Rock, but still allows me a package that is small enough to fish in areas that a bass boat could never reach.
You have to have a great rod to catch fish, and my rod of choice is Fitzgerald Rods. I will be relying heavily on my collection of Fitzgerald Rods including the Stunner HD, Vursa, and Aqua Dream to help me get the fish into the boat. Use code Billy20 to save $$ on all things Fitzgerald.
When it comes to hard baits, Skirmish Baits are the ones I go to. Whether I am using a squarebill like the M9 or MP7, or a jerkbait like the AIM9, you just can't beat the action or the hand painted colors. Yes, hand painted. They were also nice enough to give my friends and followers a 10% discount using code Reynolds10 when checking out.
Flipping, drop shot, plastics? Tungsten has become the "go-to" way to get your baits into the zone. Swagger Tackle is my choice for tungsten weights. Affordable, and jam packed with features that allow you to concentrate on catching the fish, not dealing with your tackle. Use code Billy15 to save 15%.
How do I keep my Fitzgerald Rods safe? By using TRC Rod Covers. Hand crafted fishing pole covers that not only protect your rods, but that you can also customize using different colors. If that's not enough, you can also add custom lettering. Check them out and use code South10 to save yourself some $$. Just let them know that Billy Reynolds sent ya!!
