RICK STECKELBERG - Eastanollee, GA
Rick's goal several years ago was to develop his own interpretation of a jighead with something that closely resembled a shad, a seemingly ubiquitous freshwater baitfish. From this inspiration came Swomring Hornet Lures. Now with a full line of successful baits and touring professionals cashing in on the action, Rick continues to test and refine his designs on tour.
Troy Morrow - Toccoa, GA
From his earliest years, Troy has been fishing--first in a pond outside his grandparent's home in Ohio with occasional trips to Lake Erie. Moving to Georgia when he was 9 years old only increased his passion for fishing. While still too young to drive, Troy fished any water he could reach by bike - creeks, ponds, rivers; anything was fair game. Now, living in Toccoa, GA just 10 minutes from Lake Hartwell, Troy spends much of this time fishing tournaments around the country or on one of the lakes in this area.

Troy Andrews - Hendersonville, Tn
I was age 9 .... My Uncle Robert took me fishing on Nickajack Lake in Tennessee. We caught bluegill, bass, the usual species. Then another trip later, he taught me how to bass fish .... it was all ON then! Since that day, I have only wanted to advance my fishing. I am Blessed to be where I am now and fortunate to have the sponsors that have taken me in. My plans are to fish the Bassmaster Opens / Weekend series among other tournaments. My biggest thanks goes to God & my Family for their support.
2nd State of Georgia - High School League
I'm Noah Pescitelli, a high school student that started fishing in a small private pond and found myself obsessed with catching Bass almost instantly! I have played many sports and fishing was the only "sport" that I found I had a full passion for. I enjoyed fishing so much I wanted to fish every day! We started off with a small metal boat and now we have a Ranger, loaded out with organizers for baits, storage for rods, dual station electronics, dual power poles and all the rest of the gear I've discovered it takes to be a competitive fisherman. I am currently fishing the B.A.S.S. high school series and recently earned a slot in a National Tournament this fall.
My love of fishing lead me to want to do something more. I started making videos of my fish adventures. I really enjoyed making the fishing montage videos which lead to product reviews. I found out that other fisherman enjoyed watching and wanted to see more. I started Kickin' Their Bass TV to share my love for fishing, my experience learning to fish at a professional level, the gear I use and of course, the fish I catch! A lot of people have helped me get here. Local guides, pros, bait and rod manufacturers. You can find their info in the Sponsors area, and I'll be calling them out by name in my videos and posts.
