The Bassmaster Classic Media Day offers media folks a great opportunity to find out from the anglers themselves how they think the Classic will pan out. It’s always great to hear what they think and who they feel will do well in the biggest event of the fishing year.

But we at the Bass Fishing Archives like to look at this event in another way, to find out some of the anglers’ history – primarily how they got their start bass fishing or how they decided they could make a living catching green and brown fish. Yesterday, that’s exactly what we did. We sat down with eight anglers and asked them, “What’s your story?”

Here’s Elite Series angler Kevin Short and the story of how he got started fishing as a kid and that morphed into fishing small tournaments and eventually his wife Kerry kind of pushed him into the direction of being a professional.
