Hi, My name is Charlie. I like to fish.
I have been fishing for a long time. Since I was little! I ain't been little in a long time!
I have always fished and enjoyed fishing. I like fishing all different types of fish, including dog fish and carp! In High School my freshman year they started a Fishing Team at our school. That was my intro to competitive Bass fishing. I am currently attending & fishing in college for the Montevallo Falcons in Alabama. They were the National Champions back to back 2021 & 2022 seasons! I hope to help them secure the trophy for the 3-peat!
Follow along as I fish tournaments across the United States, Guide, Teach and Go Bigg toward my dream of becoming a Professional Fisherman!
I began fishing when I was young. My Dad was an avid angler and we had family cabins in Minnesota and Canada. We also would visit my Great Grandma in Florida and we would fish there too. I have spent countless hours on the dock, at the river, on a paddleboat, and on a boat just fishing. I enjoy snorkeling and looking at fish and habitat too. I have just always had a passion for fishing and water. The fun I have fishing is contagious and I would get friends and kids on our baseball team to fish a small river by our house. My friend Carter Hietala has been with me on lots of adventures and was my fishing partner all through High School. We actually started fishing together when we were around 10. When in High School my Dad would take me to Non-Profit Christian Camps where we were the guides. We would take kids, pastors, drug recovering kids/adults from Teen Challenge, inner city church groups, and all types of people fishing. At 16 I became a guide and started taking people fishing on my own at some of these camps. If it wasn't allowed, the camp leaders would just let me run the boat. We fished many different lakes and it forced you to learn how to catch fish quick on new bodies of water. Many parents don't allow their kids to drive the boat or trolling motor. But my parents allowed me to start fishing on my own around 12 years old. All of these experiences have developed me into the angler I am today. I enjoy taking people fishing and showing them how to catch fish. I also believe in Jesus and really do believe that God has helped me along in this journey. I appreciate the follows on social media. Just living the dream and hopefully it will turn into a career someday! - Biggtime
