We all remember our first bass – or at least the first bass we set out to catch. The memory always holds a deep place in our hearts. But just because bass pros make their living at catching bass doesn’t mean the thought of their first largemouth or smallmouth doesn’t bring back a flood good memories. In fact, it was usually that first fish that paved the way for them choosing their profession. Dave Lefebre is no different.

Today Dave talks about his first fish and how it changed him. How he would sneak books into his room at night to read and how he’d pretend he was a pro on the water. His first fish was caught on a floating Rapala – a company he is now sponsored by.
