Hey, mind if I take a turn?
Our guest this week is FLW Tour Pro Cody Kelley from Conway, Arkansas. An Arkansas native, Cody grew up looking for the next best way to catch more Arkansas bucketmouths. Sometimes that meant studying fishing books from family friends or watching fishing shows. The rest of the time it meant having Mom, Dad, or Grandpa take him out for some Arkansas bass fishing. And, even when he went to college, he was still studying bass on the college fishing team. Come graduation day, Cody decided to give the pro circuit a go for one year before getting a “real” job. That was several years ago, and Cody is now an FLW Tour Pro making his home state proud. In this episode, Cody shares one of his early tournament experiences. It was one of those “lightbulb” moments that turned into a “lights out” tournament finish.

As a pro bass fisherman, it kind of goes without saying Cody has a ton of largemouth and smallmouth bass fishing experience. Especially Arkansas bass fishing. But in this episode, Cody tells us about his first real introduction to the power of a fishfinder. It was a game changer for him, and there were a lot of fish with sore lips that day. Plus, we talk about the awesome ways he gives back through the Special Olympics and other great youth events.
