Matt Jones

Augusta, Georgia

Matt Jones has been fishing for 30 years, but it only took the first catch for him to get hooked. Having grown up in Pascagoula, Mississippi, rivers, swamps, and marsh are Matt’s home turf. His dad was a big tournament bass fisherman who travelled all over, and he was good at it. “I was 36 years old when I finally caught more bass than him in a single outing.” Matt’s been married for 13 years and has three sons who love to fish- or catch, at least. He purchased his first kayak in June of 2018, and in the ECGKA for 2019 he finished sixth. He also qualified for the 2020 KBF National Championship.

 

“ There is nothing better than fishing in a kayak. The bigger the fish, the less you have to paddle…”
