was about 5 years old - that gives him about 60 years of bass fishing
Just fishing was very exciting to
him but in his late teens, about the time Ray Scott started BASS and his
joining the Ozark Bass club in Springfield, MO, he was bitten by the competitive
angling bug. He guided for many years on
Tablerock and the White River lakes and finally was able to enter his first
Bassmaster event in the mid eighties. He’s qualified for 12 Bassmaster classics and 4 Forrest Wood
Championships. He’s amassed over 1.3
million in earnings in the combined circuits.
He credits Tommy Martin, Rick Clunn, and Larry Nixon for help shaping
One of the most fulfilling aspects
of his career has been his relationship with Bass Pro Shops and Tracker Marine.
These have been the greatest companies to be associated with and we’ve sure had
a lot of fun along the way.
Stacey and his wife, Peggy, have three grandkids that they love to
spend time with. Zeb (13), Langley (11),
and Wit (6).They all like to fish, but
Wit is eat up with it! Zeb has taken 2
quality white tail bucks the last 2 years and Langley is going to be an Olympic
