Mark Cavanaugh

Fishing seriously is an illness, but thankfully there is a cure for it – fishing. I used to fish strictly because it was a passion to figure out a better way to catch’em. Now the passion is more about the whole aspect of fishing – preparation, planning, camaraderie with partners and team mates, teaching others, learning from others and simply enjoying the time doing all of the above.

This is by far the tournament I look forward to the most every year. I have gone down with the team for a few years now and the people you meet, the things you learn and the different bodies of water you fish make it such an amazing experience. Knowing that you are 2 tournaments away from qualifying for the Bassmaster Classic makes it that much more exciting. I can’t wait to head down and enjoy an awesome week with all of you guys!

I started fishing at a very young age and started a fishing charter company on Lake Erie at the age of 18 to pay for school. I eventually moved on to fishing tournaments and hope to grow as a bass angler in this sport.
