Hello, my name is Chris Conners and I am fifteen years old. I first started fishing the river with my uncle when I was five. Ever since that day I have had a burning passion for fishing and the lifestyle that comes along with it. When I started tournament fishing, I competed in power boat competitions, and although I was successful, I felt as if something was missing. The day I stepped foot in a kayak I realized that was where I belonged. As I have continued my career I have been fortunate enough to be sponsored by Arkee Rods and Tear Em Up Fishing and also to be a member of the Pro Team at Ozark Mountain Trading Company. Now I push myself daily to not only become a better fisherman, but to be an influential ambassador helping to spread the word about our great sport!

I had fished big boat tournaments for several years, and then began canoeing about 12 years ago. That led to getting a kayak, and fishing kayak tournaments 2 years ago. Wish I would have discovered kayak bass fishing a long time ago!
