Frank said, "Iíve been fishing since I canít even remember when. I wanted to fish the Bassmasters Tournament since I was 14, and Iíve fished semi-pro and other tournaments since I was 16. Iíve been fishing my whole life but I went pro two years ago."
"This is my third season on the pro tour. First you fish the invitationals or open tournaments as they call them today. There are about 250 competitors in each division and they take the top 24 qualified for the tour. So I qualified and my first season on the tour, I won the rookie of the year and made the Bassmaster Classic."
"The Classic is like the Superbowl of bass fishing. And basically, thatís when I decided I would do it full time. Before that, I had a small ad agency for about 18 years. Iíve been in the Cleveland area my whole life. We have four kids and my wife is the nucleus of the family. My travel is extensive and her support is critical."
