I grew up fishing and don’t really remember not fishing. My earliest fishing memories are with my dad who was an avid tournament angler during the 80’s and 90’s I primarily fished for bass even from a early age. My first boat was a 12ft john boat I got in 10th grade. I had no trailer and a small bow mounted trolling motor. Later on that summer I graduated to a 7.5 Merc, still no trailer. Later I saved enough to finally make a homemade trailer. I wouldn’t trade my beginnings for anything now. At the age of 19 I bought my dad’s bass boat and I haven’t stopped since.
When I was ten years old I caught the fishing bug at my grandfather’s pond in my hometown of Cullman, Alabama. I remember that day vividly as I was pulling five pounders out with my first rod and reel. I knew at that moment I wanted to do this for the rest of my life. Years later, my parents saw a growing passion and bought me an aluminum boat to fish local tournaments on Lake Catoma. Fast forward ten years I find myself watching my dreams unfold one tournament at a time. Fishing on Auburn’s University Team was a life changing, growing, experience that opened the doors to my future in fishing. At 23, I am the youngest competitor on the BASS Elite Series and I am determined to make professional angling my ultimate goal.
Matt Lee is originally from Cullman, AL. He grew up fishing Lake Guntersville with his brother, Jordan. His love for the sport only grew with age. Matt attended Auburn University and is pursuing a degree in Industrial Engineering. While working to earn his degree he fished on the Auburn University Bass Fishing Team, serving as President during the 2011-2012 Year. During his Junior year at Auburn he won the College BASS College Bracket which jumpstarted his career and allowed him to compete in the 2013 Bassmaster Classic. His brother, Jordan, won the 2014 Bassmaster College Classic Bracket allowing him to compete in the 2014 Bassmaster Classic. Now Matt and Jordan are both fishing their rookie seasons on the Bassmaster Elite Series in 2015, being the first brothers in the history of the sport to qualify for the Elites in the same year.
