BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Bassmaster Elite Series angler Skeet Reese caught his first bass at 8 years old, an experience that set him on a course to be a top bass fishing pro. The California angler is on a winning streak during the 2013 season, already securing a victory in the May 2-5 Elite Series West Point Lake Battle and earning a $100,000 payday, plus a berth in the 2014 Bassmaster Classic.
By entering the “Fish With Skeet!” sweepstakes on Bassmaster.com, one fortunate fan will have the chance to learn firsthand Reese’s passion for the sport.
Skeet fished a variety of baits – here is an excerpt from his Skeet’s Beat blog.
Then it all kind of just happened. I caught a few early on my Lucky Craft LV 100, then the sun came out and I caught them dropshotting a smoke / purple flake Berkley Havoc Bottom Hopper, and I caught some fry guarding males on a methiolate colored Berkley Powerbait Dover Crawler floating worm too after the sun came out.

When I ended the last post in my Skeet’s Beat blog, I said I would really like to win West Point. I thought I would go down there and toss a swimbait, crack some heads and have a chance to win it. That didn’t happen – well, the swimbait part anyway.
Holy crap, is it cool to win. I really didn’t think I had the chance to either until I got back to my room after day three and realized how close the weights were.
